David Jones Celebrates 175 Years With a Star-Studded Gala
Fresh from wowing international press on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival, it wasn't long before Megan Gale was back in front of the cameras after returning to Australia. The model, in Dion Lee, joined her fellow David Jones ambassadors and a host of local celebrities to celebrate David Jones' 175th birthday at a black tie gala held at the Sydney store last night. Perth-born beauty Jessica Gomes, who replaced Miranda Kerr as a brand ambassador a few months ago, stunned in a backless design, and Jason Dundas, Montana Cox, Gai Waterhouse and Emma Freedman — all part of the DJs family — all brought their star power to the event.
VIP guests including Delta Goodrem, Jesinta Campbell, Stephanie Rice, Rachael Finch and Michael Miziner, Charlotte Dawson and David Jones' stable of designers witnessed the launch of a commemorative exhibition that celebrates the department store's history. They also toasted the occasion with lots of champagne, canapés, and a dessert and cheese station.
