The 18-year-old wore a gold ballgown designed by Giambattista Valli Haute Couture at the event at The Peninsula Paris hotel. She was escorted by Maharaja Padmanabh Singh of Jaipur, a prominent member of Indian royalty and a polo player pal of Prince William’s.

In a video posted by Bruno Astuto, a writer for Vogue Brasil, Phillippe looks calm and poised as she elegantly bows to Singh before they began a waltz. The pair dance to a song from the hit film La La Land in front of 19 fellow debutantes, including Steve Harvey’s daughter, Lori Harvey, and other guests.

The Bal des Debutantes originated in 1992 as a way of highlighting daughters from notable families and featuring them in lavish couture gowns. Phillippe is not the only celebrity child to be featured at the debutante ball. Bruce Willis and Demi Moore’s daughters Scout and Tallulah Willis, Sylvester Stallone’s daughter Sophia Rose Stallone and Larry David’s daughter Romy David have also been invited to the fete. Lily Collins was also a past debutante.
