Despite her glitzy party wear, Nicole was the epitome of mature youth in an eye-catching deep blue dress. The lace overlay and satin belt detail created the perfect blend of respectfulness and style, a combination that is far easier to describe than to find for most bat mitzvah girls.

The family joined in her daytime color scheme, also donning shades of blue.
