Kristin Cavallari was the belle of the ball!
KCav made good on her promise to attend the Marine Corps Ball with Lance Cpl. Jonathan Burkett on Thursday.
Kristin looked breathtaking in a strapless blue Maria Lucia Hohan gown, which she accessorized with a stack of bracelets and a gold belt. Cavallari first agreed to attend the event in August when the Camp Pendleton-based Marine sent her an invitation via Twitter.
So just who is this gutsy guy who asked out Kristin Cavallari on a whim?
"What made me ask Kristin to the ball? I always thought she was a beautiful girl," Jonathan Burkett told E! News Friday.
We doubt Cavallari's main man, Jay Cutler, has anything to worry about though—Burkett's got the utmost respect for the Chicago Bears quarterback, who hooked him up with a signed jersey.
"@JayCutler6 hey man glad she was able to come! You have an awesome gf and hopefully wife!" Burkett tweeted after the ball.
Cutler responded the next morning, saying Kristin "is the best. We appreciate all your sacrifices. Let me know if I can ever help with anything."
"Attending last nights Marine Corps Ball was such an incredible experience for me. My date for the night, Lance Cpl. Jonathan Burkett, thanked me for attending as his guest but really I’m the one giving thanks. John and all the marines at our table were so welcoming and friendly. I had a really great time and it was an absolute honor to be amongst our county’s finest while celebrating all they do for us."
