The Divorced Billionaire Heiress chapter 108
Grant Stanton personally sent out the invitations for the anniversary of Stanton Corporation. Every famous and influential person in the country was basically on the guestlist.
What was most shocking was that they had rejected all brand sponsorships for this anniversary gala.
They had also hired the top event planners to make sure that everything, from place settings, drinks, and meals, was of the best standard. Everyone could see the degree of importance this anniversary gala was to the Stantons.
After a few days, Nicole’s online beratement was no longer as intense as before. From time to time, there would be a hired keyboard warrior that would hurl some insults at her. What replaced Nicole’s scandal as the hottest topic was the search for @RichBaby, the mysterious rich woman from that live -streamed shopping spree.
In that live stream, @RichBaby bought luxury items worth $800 million without first asking for the price of anything. Thus, the identity of @RichBaby was hotly debated for a while.
Everyone still did not know anything about this mysterious person except the chat records from that day’s live stream.
The netizens speculated that since @RichBaby had bought out the live-streamer’s merchandise for that session, which was worth $800 million, she would have to pick them up somehow. They just had to pay close attention to the pick-up process to find out more about this @RichBaby.
Nicole happily watched the show online. She did not reveal herself or make a sound and let the crowd run wild with speculations.
After all, Nicole was not in showbiz, so she did not have to expose all her information to the public.
Stanton Corporation’s anniversary gala was held in the largest banquet hall in the business district that could accommodate a thousand people. It was a semi- open venue, and from the upper floors, one could overlook much of the bustling city.
From there, they could see a river that ran through the north and south ends of the city, as well as a few famous landmarks. The huge digital screens on those buildings were advertising space that was usually billed by the second. That night, Stanton Corporation had bought out all those digital signboards to place congratulatory text about their anniversary.
It was an expensive low-key display of wealth.
The businessmen, celebrities, and media who attended the event marveled at the hefty costs of this gala. They all thought it astonishing that Stanton Corporation would celebrate a mere anniversary in such a grand way.
Nicole arrived early at the venue’s lounge. Grant Stanton was outside, while Floyd Stanton had to help his daughter pick out the best clothes and jewelry. Everything must be perfect.
Even those who were accustomed to luxury brands were startled when they arrived at the venue because these gowns were all unique haute couture tailor-made for Nico le. Several top international designers discussed for a few days to come up with the concept and design of these dresses. All thirteen of these dresses were stunning collectors’ items, and this scene set a unique precedent in the world.
”Ms. Stanton, which gown do you prefer for your first appearance?” The designer asked with a smile.
Nicole looked at the thirteen gowns in front of her that were all so gorgeous and exquisite that she could not shift her gaze.
Before she could say anything, Floyd waved his hand and said, ”Just wear whichever that’s most expensive! “
Nicole was speechless.
The designer spoke meekly, ”Chairman Stanton, these dresses can no longer be valued in terms of money… ”
Nicole smiled and pointed to the light gray drop- shoulder gown that looked simple, elegant, and noble. It was meticulously inlaid with hexagonal-cut diamonds and was beyond beautiful.
”This one?” The designer nodded approvingly. ”Ms. Stanton, you have a good eye! The first appearance should leave the deepest impression. If the dress is too extravagant, it’ll take away from the main character, so it won’t seem appropriate. Although the color of this dress is understated, it has a very chic design. Each diamond is carefully selected for its clarity and the location of the inlay brings out the best of your figure. It’ll show off your slender figure and fair skin even more! With these heels, it’s simply perfection! “
The person next to the designer came forward holding the pair of high heels, which were just as expensive, exquisite, and flawless.
Floyd nodded repeatedly, but no one knew if he actually understood what the designer said. Anyway, those were words of appraisal for Nicole, so he liked it!
“Where’s the jewelry? Where’s the stuff I had someone buy from the European royal family?“
The person on the side hurriedly carried it over carefully with both hands.
“Chairman Stanton, here it is. It just got off the plane and is in perfect condition.“
Floyd swept a glance, nodded, and looked at his daughter. “Nikki Baby, see if you like it. If you don’t, I’ll get someone to change it. I bought you other jewelry too, but this is the most expensive one! “
Nicole laughed helplessly. She swept a glance at the jewelry and knew that it was very well preserved by the collector. The diamond’s clarity was dazzling. Fortunately, the design was not too fancy and cumbersome. It was just a simple necklace in the shape of a lily, which was fitting for this dress.
“No, it’s nice. This will do.“
As soon as Nicole said this, Grant knocked on the door and came in. “Dad, the Fergusons are here.“
