You're Invited to 

The Met Pages Best Dressed Celebration

Brought to you by

The Bellevue Collection

 Great style requires more than an outfit. Help us fete 2013's best dressed and most fabulously generous at BoConcept in Bellevue. We'll sip cocktails, sample delicious bites, enjoy live entertainment, and vote for The Met Page's Best Dressed - from the inside, out. All net proceeds benefit a local nonprofit of the chic and charitable winner's choice.

Want to share your pick for 2013's Best Dressed before the event? CLICK HERE for our online voting page!


Details to Note:

  • Join us for an evening full of cocktails, delicious food, a caricature artist, a lipsologist, step & repeat, music, and mingling. If you hear sirens, don't worry - it's just the fashion police pulling you over for a job well done!
  • Dress to impress - one partygoer will be chosen as the winner of the Best Cocktail Attire Award, presented by Proximo Spirits. The winner will receive a prize and bragging rights.
  • A variety of food and drink will be offered, but unfortuantely we can't promise to accommodate special dietary requests.
  • This event was planned with guests 21 and over in mind; be sure to bring a valid photo ID.
  • Tickets are non-refundable, but please contact us if you would like to transfer a ticket to another name.


2013 Best Dressed Winners

How we chose them: Each winner attended an event where The Met Pages was present, wearing their finest outfit (trendy, classic, chic, or unique). At the end of each month, a winner was selected based on their style and their story.
