It is undoubtedly a collection Ruby would have loved: bright tie-dye dresses feature beside sequined gowns, metallic breastplates , purple handbags, denim cape-like coats, and heels furnished with motifs including nail polish bottles and tomatoes.

Finally, she ended the night with dinner, sightseeing, and—of course—a flute (or two) of champagne, a more than worthy way to celebrate her successful year so far.
