The event is ‘black-tie optional’. So men, if you have a tux, wear it, and if you don’t, do not rent or purchase one for this occasion. Women generally wear cocktail dresses or something similar that’s semi-formal.

If you’re still not sure, visit our photo galleries and check out the pictures from last year’s event.
