Stallone's daughter to make Paris ball debut

Sylvester Stallone's 16-year-old daughter Sophia-Rose will be among the 21 young women stepping out at the debutantes' ball in Paris this weekend, organisers said on Monday.

Taking place at the glitzy Crillon Hotel on Saturday, the ball will also draw the daughter of US actress Rosanna Arquette, 18-year-old Zoe-Bleu Sidel, as well as Lily Rivkin, 17, daughter of the US ambassador to France Charles Rivkin.

Launched in 1992, the high-society highlight updates a custom stretching back to the royal courts of France and England.

Dressed in haute couture and accompanied by cherry-picked cavaliers the young women from 14 countries, daughters of a global elite of actors, business leaders and aristocrats, will have dinner before the big dance.

"Le Bal" is held every year in late November during the US Thanksgiving weekend. Proceeds from this year's event will go to the "Enfants d'Asie" charity for Asian children.

Past debutantes include the daughters of actors Forest Whittaker, Clint Eastwood, the blockbuster author Daniele Steel or car tycoon Carlos Ghosn, and the granddaughters of ex-Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev.
