Belle of the Ball
Meaning - The most attractive woman at a social gathering.
Origin This phrase is, of course, 'the belle of the ball', not 'the bell of the ball', as it is sometimes incorrectly spelled. A ball is of course a social gathering for dancing etc. 'Belle', meaning 'fair; beautiful', was adopted into English in the 17th century, from the Old French 'bele' and ultimately from the Latin 'bella'. A specific meaning, which is the one used in 'belle of the ball', was 'a lady who is the reigning beauty of a place'. 'Belle' has been, and continues to be, used in various French adjectival phrases, for example, 'belle assemblée' - brilliant assembly; 'belle dame' - fair lady; 'belle laide' - an attractively ugly woman; 'belle passion' - tender passion. The term 'belle of the ball' is of English origin.
