Australian model and jewelry designer Nicole Trunfio, who has a net worth of $10 million, exceptionally embodied the 1920s dressed in a gorgeous beaded gown for the Gatsby-themed fundraiser, “Let’s Misbehave to Benefit Love Heals,” held at the Wölffer Estate Vineyards.

The 27-year-old Trunfio was top-to-toe flapper with her coiffed hair, beaded headdress, and black beaded gown. Like most flapper-era dresses, her outfit featured an art deco pattern and a great amount of glitter and beads.

Her gown was exceptionally striking for its fishnet overlay and fringed and tasseled bottom. She completed the look with a pair of simple ankle-strap sandals.

Trunfio made an extraordinary donation to the Love Heals benefit in the form of one of her designs, a geometric bracelet that was also put up for auction. 15 percent of the sales went to the HIV/AIDS education and outreach cause of Love Heals.
