Once invited, the young women and their families spend tens of thousands of dollars to attend the ball.
Each girl is also required to wear a white princess-style gown and long white satin gloves for the big night -- a deep-rooted tradition.
I think that the purity quality back in the old day was part of it. As an accomplished ballet dancer, a competitive ballroom dancer and a cheerleader, Brittney has some serious moves.
But then after trying on four or five dresses I asked if I could try on the dress I saw when I walked in. Often mistaken for a young Reese Witherspoon, Caroline has gotten used to standing spotlight.
When it's time to make their debut, the debutantes have to line-up in alphabetical order based on their state.
Being from Florida, Caroline was the 15th girl to walk, and was presented with her escort, Yale student Nate Goodman. Then the announcer repeats our name and state where we are from and also who our parents, our family is, and I curtsy and go off-stage.
Her passion for filmmaking landed her prestigious internships at University of Southern California and in London to work on a Terence Malick film.
Coming to the International Debutante Ball was a familiar experience, because she attended the event six years ago when her sisters debuted.
When the girls are presented, they have to curtsy, but being from Texas, Sophia had to do the "Texas Dip. It's basically like an extreme curtsy," she said.
But as a Texas debutante, Sophia said she has the option of having her escort, Yale student Robert Hurn, help her.
She wore a dress by Oleg Cassini, the same designer who made Jackie Kennedy Onassis' dress when she debuted. When the girls are presented, they walk out to music, and Leah chose something close to her heart.
Both of her parents are Tony award-winning producers, and even own a Broadway theater, and Leah chose a song to honor the family business.
So today he was trying not to sing along as we were walking but we were both kind of losing the fight. When asked if she was nervous before she was presented, Leah said she was only worried about tripping in her heels.
But following in her parent's footsteps, Leah is an actor and a writer. Shows Good Morning America. World News Tonight.
Well, he didn't save this book from being annoying and not funny. I've read a lot of stories recently that weren't stories at all; they were the author's views arranged around weak characters.
Kurt Vonnegut's 'Cat's Cradle' comes to mind here. Ben Elton's 'High Society' is not like this at all. It carries a political agenda but the story is still paramount and the characters are real, lovable in their "fooked" up ways.
It gets you thinking about drugs and how to tackle them, an issue which is as important today as when High Society was published nearly fifteen I've read a lot of stories recently that weren't stories at all; they were the author's views arranged around weak characters.
It gets you thinking about drugs and how to tackle them, an issue which is as important today as when High Society was published nearly fifteen years ago.
The story and the message resonate in the same way. What I was not expecting when I began the book was Elton's ideas on the corruption in politics which I think, even more than drugs, are the novel's main theme.
This is a fantastic book that brought a lot of nostalgia, fun and, buried deeply as it should be a message of true importance. Oct 30, Zaki rated it did not like it.
Ben Elton's books are paceless, tasteless and f-ing graceless. His books are often like low-grade fast food: tasty in an obvious sort of way, but without much nutrition.
They can also leave you hungry, not because of a shortage of bulk, but because there's no substance behind the fizz and pop. Even junk has its own integrity whereas Ben Elton has none whatsoever.
He deliberately gets on people's nerves. He gets a kick out of it. There was a poll taken not too long ago amongst the british and there Ben Elton's books are paceless, tasteless and f-ing graceless.
There was a poll taken not too long ago amongst the british and there is a general consensus that ben elton should've been put to death at birth which i think is a bit over the top because there is no way you can ascertain how someone will turn out at that age.
Ben Elton hasn't always been a figure of scorn. He once upon a time gave us Blackadder. What happened?! It's been a long time since I read a Ben Elton novel.
I can't decide if this wasn't as good as the others I've read or if I just enjoyed them more when I was younger. Parts of this were very funny as expected but for the most part I found it tragically sad and a bit depressing.
May have been the subject matter I guess. Without any spoilers I enjoyed Jessie the Scottish heroin addict the most. A lot of the other characters were just plain horrible and hard to like.
My overall impression was feeling It's been a long time since I read a Ben Elton novel. My overall impression was feeling like someone who had paid for a rock concert but ended up listening to opera.
Quite good but not what I had hoped for. Mar 07, Marie UK rated it liked it Shelves: uno19 , reading-challenge , src-spring Ben Elton has produced a complex narrative with an interesting style.
There are no clear chapters and we are carried through the book via the multiple narratives of the main characters. MP Peter Paget has won the lottery to present this parliamentary sessions Private members bill and has chosen to focus on the legalisation of all drugs.
We meet his attractive ministerial secretary, journalists and a variety of drug users as Elton draws together the multiple narrative lines. The characters were a Ben Elton has produced a complex narrative with an interesting style.
The characters were all flawed and we see all those flaws as the book progresses. Elton does a good job of making the reader like or loathe his characters and sometimes my opinions changed.
My main problem would be that there was some repetition and the whole thing just seemed a little lengthy to me Mar 18, David added it Shelves: new-in The watershed mark for Elton.
There are funny moments in this book but there is no comedy. From the start of his career he addressed serious subjects, but gradually the comic take on serious subjects became a serious take on serious subjects.
It does feel a bit dated now, but still worth reading. Sep 11, Melaszka rated it really liked it. There's a lot to dislike about this book - as ever with Elton, it has the tang of the sermon about it, his certainty about having the "right" answer about everything is really irritating if you disagree with him and I say that as someone who is broadly sympathetic to his views on drugs and politics - even I got incensed by a couple of throwaway comments e.

There is a whole massive debate to be had about that, and yet Elton just throws it in, in passing, as if it were indisputable by any right-minded person.
If I strongly disagreed with him on any of the central issues of the novel, I'd have found it insufferable.
I sense he is always going to be preaching to the converted. He doesn't always successfully juggle his dramatis personae Sonia is particularly underwritten, but Emily's story, Leman's story and some of the others' stories also seem to peter out half way though.
He overrelies on not always authentically realised regional dialect as a way of differentiating characters. And he sometimes crosses the line from heartwarming to sickly sentimentality and from a consciously fairytale-style optimism to amateurish farfetchedness.
From a feminist viewpoint, he tries hard e. Jess is no damsel in distress who has to be rescued and saved by a man , but the novel still seems a tad malecentric however resourceful she is, Jess is ultimately important to the plot because she is pretty and a man falls in love with her.
BUT I still loved it. I got totally sucked into the main characters' stories and really cared what happened to them. I admired the way in which Elton drew conflicting characters with equal sympathy and compassion.
With a few obvious exceptions, there aren't many goodies or baddies in this novel - Elton convincingly charts how easily decent people can drift into doing unwise things and the consequences can snowball and lead to further unwise decisions.
I was genuinely moved by what happened to most of the characters and, even when on occasions they were tearing each other apart, I could sympathise with both of them.
For all its lecturing, the novel does make an even-handed, broad-sweeping, intelligent exploration of the issue of drugs in modern Britain. It's a hell of an ambitious book and he more or less pulls it off.
In plot terms, it was also very compelling. And, unsurprisingly, with Elton pushing the pen, there were some fabulous one-liners.
Oct 07, Sharon rated it really liked it. He makes valid moral points within a riveting and extremely funny novel. Elton in no way pushes the humour in his writing trying to get a cheap laugh, instead it is all played through his fantastic characters.
Take arrogant pop star Tommy Hanson — he is simply hilarious. On saying that, there is no lack of emotional development in certain characters too.
The main point running through the book is the war on drugs, the way it affects everyone from successful business-people to people who have fallen out of society and whether the legalisation of drugs would solve a lot of problems.
Peter Paget, MP and familyman, is the character trying to push this legislation through parliament while playing down a scandal of an affair he is having with his PA.
There are quite a few characters in this novel, all affected in one way or another by drugs — some of them are touched on briefly such as young Brummie Sonia who lands up in a Bangkok jail for smuggling while others form the main backbone of the novel — the endearing Jessie who has fallen foul of heroin by being lured into it by a pimp who uses her good looks and vulnerability by putting her on the game.
Then there is the fantastic character of Tommy Hanson who is attending rehab meetings to try and kick the habit. I know this has annoyed people but I found it easy to follow and it enabled you to gradually get to know the characters and their lives better.
Nov 19, Tex rated it really liked it Shelves: reads. A darkly comic tale which takes a look at the use and abuse of recreational drugs in Britain.
The major theme throughout the book is that the war on drugs is failing, the criminal element is pervasive, and would the legalisation, licensing, and control of recreational drugs be a viable alternative.
Once more Elton handles quite controversial and sensitive matters with aplomb. His characters are believable and their motives and actions are clear and reasonable.
Once the scene had been set the story was compelling. High Society gets 3. Not sure what I expected. The comic streak not quite there.
Whatever the arguments and plot themes designed to explore legalization, the overall theme that came across to me was that people who can afford a habit are more likely to get away with it than people who can't.
This is not all that radical, and it paints a very ugly picture of the UK at the time - perhaps it was that way, but I wonder if this is more about what the tabloids said it was than about what it actually was.
As for the writin Not sure what I expected. As for the writing itself, easy to read, despite the overworked regional accents; characters with very little depth, more like policy positions than characters; and occasionally heroic and unlikely plot twists in order to make a point.
Not my favorite Ben Elton novel. Dec 29, Heather rated it it was amazing. This one is very readable with lots of dark humour.
The characters are well developed and you find yourself immersed in their individual stories. The Pop Star Tommy was highly irritating but really showed the grip of fame on society.
The drugs stories are detailed and disturbing and therefore the idea of legalising them via one of the main characters Peter Pagent MP becomes intriguing and even possible.
The ending is shocking, dark and quite savage. I was genuinely amazed at the level that we descended to at the end, and although there is a little light at the end of the tunnel, this is no happily ever after.
Thought provoking, which I love in a book. Feb 10, Tyson rated it it was ok. I picked the book up at a local bookstore and was attracted to it because it tells the story, thorugh a series of vignettes about the durg cultuere in Birtain.
I don't know why, but I've always been attracted to the lurid sotires of drugs in the dance music culture.
The book explores the effects of illegal drugs on pop stars, prostitutes, celebrities and politicians. Hardly a grand novel, certainly not as poignant as other books that explore the trajedy and smoetimes redemption of characters inv I picked the book up at a local bookstore and was attracted to it because it tells the story, thorugh a series of vignettes about the durg cultuere in Birtain.
Hardly a grand novel, certainly not as poignant as other books that explore the trajedy and smoetimes redemption of characters involved in drugs, but a quick read, fast paced.
Jul 29, Karen rated it did not like it Shelves: gave-away , second-hand. Absolutely awful. Most of it is written in direct speech and, worse, in cringeworthy regional accents.
It's all so tired: a Scottish junkie? Yes, we all saw Trainspotting six years prior to publication. A lairy, hedonistic, hopelessly addicted pop star?
Yes, that's what heat magazine is for. A lying scumbag politician giving his secretary one? Ooh, what a surprise. The only part I liked was when said politician's precocious daughter got made a complete tit of.
Any relevant points Elton was makin Absolutely awful. Any relevant points Elton was making were obliterated by the fact of it being utter crap.
Jan 07, Catty rated it liked it. I really enjoyed this book, though I didn't really see it as comedy for the majority of it, to be honest.
There were a couple of parts that made me smile ironically, but the real interest for me was in Jessie's story, despite the improbabilities of its ending.
I'm not really a fan of the "all the main characters are connected in some way" trope unless it's done really, really well, but the writing and the satire was good enough overall for me to forgive that.
I am interested in having a look at I really enjoyed this book, though I didn't really see it as comedy for the majority of it, to be honest.
I am interested in having a look at some of his other stuff as a result of this book though, so it must have done the job in some way!
Shelves: fiction , highly-recomnended. Will this really happen if all drugs are made legal? If only marijuana was made legal?
Who knows? This book, at first glance, seems preachy but if you think of it through Elton's somewhat misanthropic eyes you realize he's just trying to tell us we're already scum enough without drugs to add a sting to our dirty politics and social double crossing.
It's a witty book, as usual with Elton, but its not his best writing. Still, it's a good read and I recommend it.
Feb 26, David rated it it was ok. I don't know, I mean it was ok as a story. A little far-fetched in places, it seemed like he was trying too hard to sound qualified to write a story about hard drugs.
He attempts using street phrases and he just didn't come across as authentic. An interesting theory, but an utterly implausible one, is the basis for this book which means I think it was always going to struggle.
It was just more bland than witty and had no literary style. Oct 07, Sarah rated it liked it Shelves: humor. Ben Elton is certainly one of the sharpest social commentators writing novels these days; High Society is no exception.
At times excruciating to read, it is nevertheless very hard to put down. I was up until the wee hours finishing this. A number of people and story lines all somehow connected to the drug scene makes up the story and the book is almost impossible to put down.
Aug 23, Naomi rated it it was amazing. Ben Elton is gradually becoming one of those authors, for me, that I can rest easy knowing I am in good hands.
I particularly enjoyed the whole range of characters he had on offer. We had the rich, party-girl upper-classes in Emily, the middle-class with the moral high ground in Peter.
Then there's Tommy, the regular boy who shoots to fame on reality TV, and then can't quite handle himself. And finally, below the low classes is Jessie, trapped in a vicious cycle of drug use and prostitution.
Ther Ben Elton is gradually becoming one of those authors, for me, that I can rest easy knowing I am in good hands. There are other side plots we get glimpses of as well, and all serve to demonstrate drugs in society and aim to justify and question the legislation that Peter is trying to gain traction with.
I liked how he separated the book into "chapters", and used phonetic language to build a sense of place and person. This made it quite easy to follow, and within the first 2 sentences of each chapter it was clear who we were following.
Particularly with Tommy and Jessie, I felt like just the use of language alone gave the reader a sense of their character and helped them to occupy the space and role.
I won't spoil it but my feelings towards Peter are sour. This surely shows fantastic writing by itself, to create a character who evokes such a visceral feeling in the reader - can you ask for anything more?
The pacing was great. As we only got snippets of each story as you go through the book, I was sort of holding my breath - when can I next read about this character?
What happens next? The further I read, the more gripped I was and although the book was wholly resolved, I was so disappointed when I finished it and knew I'd never see those characters again.
On the whole I thought the book raised a lot of questions for me, about how I feel about the drugs issue, and whether or not I would support full legalisation.
It also made me look at the trappings around addiction, and how society fails a lot of those people. I'm not sure how much I agree that legalisation will solve this.
I felt that the book was tightly put together, with threads weaving throughout the book and all tying together nicely at the end.I mean, it wasn't perfect. Greg goes on a hunger strike. As a means of making it possible to exclude persons who are not desirable because of race, religion, gender, or economic status, the inclusion in high society is often based on the possession of certain characteristics.
