On October 21, 2013, Tatler magazine gathered the heiresses of the eminent surnames of Russia for their first secular debut. That evening, within the walls of the Column Hall of the House of Unions, young girls performed their first dance at the Ball of Debutantes.

Two years ago, Tatler magazine held its first ball, and this event immediately became one of the main social events of the season. As in previous years, the 2013 Tatler Debutante Ball was held in the Column Hall of the House of the Unions. It was here, in the House of the Noble Assembly, which changed its name to the House of Unions after the 1917 revolution, where receptions and balls, famous among the Moscow nobility, were held.

The main heroines of the evening, girls of the XXI century, relentlessly followed the ballroom traditions of the XIX century. The debutantes arrived at the ball wearing Haute Couture outfits from the world's leading fashion houses and Chanel jewelry. Modern girls drove up to the entrance of the House of Unions in Maserati cars. On this evening, the Bolshoi Theater artists traditionally became the partners of the debutantes. The couples danced the polonaise from the opera "Eugene Onegin" by P. I. Tchaikovsky and waltz No. 2 by D. D. Shostakovich to the accompaniment of the National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia conducted by People's Artist of the USSR Vladimir Spivakov. At the end of the ball, the debutantes, paired with their fathers and the guests who joined them, performed "Waltz of the Flowers" by PI Tchaikovsky.

The role of the host of the ball this year was played by Tatler's editor-in-chief Ksenia Solovyova and conductor Vladimir Spivakov.

“In Russia, the concept of 'debutante', which has a very intelligible meaning in Great Britain or the United States, is somewhat vague. I am often asked: "What will the girls debut in?" It seems to me that first of all they will debut in adulthood. In the ability to complete the project and be responsible. It is worthy to present yourself, not to get confused in front of hundreds of demanding eyes, not to let your partner and other girls down. Judge for yourself: to go to Paris, to the studio of a famous fashion house, to try on a Haute Couture dress, to rehearse in the legendary halls of the Bolshoi Theater, to dance to the "live Spivakov" in Chanel diamonds on the historic parquet floor of the Hall of Columns, to give interviews, to be in the spotlight - such once in a lifetime, you certainly need to experience. It's an amazing experience,”says Tatler editor-in-chief Ksenia Solovyova.
