Clothing: I will admit, being able to pull off colorful evening gear is not easy. There are all sorts of criteria - weight (satin, organza, and so forth), flattering cut, hue complimentary to skin tone, availability. But the women were a vivid display of color without having to sacrifice the cut of the garment. They were rainbow-esque and still looked good.
Another amazing thing was that most had dresses or tops with actual sleeves rather than wearing a bodysuit with a jumper. There was only a tunic or two on display; everyone was pretty much in sleeved dresses or suits.
It wasn't as though the dresses were expensive. Sure, I picked out some designer garments, but many of the wow-bang dresses were distinctly not pricey but were flattering.
For one thing, everyone's waists were defined.
