American fashion model, Lindsay Ellingson looked oh-so-glamorous in a shimmering navy and gold evening dress at the 4th Annual UNICEF Masquerade Ball in New York, this week. The gorgeous gown hung beautifully to Ellingson’s hourglass frame and boasted a show-stopping, lavish, trailing hem adorned in a pretty starfish pattern. The combination of delicate navy fabric teamed with a shimmering gold underlay adhered to a mermaid-esque theme, highly apt for the mystery and playfulness of a masquerade ball. With her golden tresses in gentle, loose waves, and sporting an effortless makeup look, Lindsay epitomised natural beauty. Natural makeup will create a more classic and elegant look, without drawing attention away from your floor-length gown.
