Featuring a semi-sheer overlay, the piece fell to the floor, and she let the stunning gown take centre stage, teaming it with a pair of emerald-cut diamond drop earrings. 

Wearing her brunette locks in a sleek centre parting, Alexa kept her make-up neutral, adding lashings of mascara and a touch of sparkling eyeshadow to complete her look.

Other guests at the lavish party included Alexa’s grandfather Alex Dell, aand his wife Rita, who looked smart in black tie attire. 

Posing for further pictures, the heiress was joined by two little girls in bridal-inspired dresses, in a hint to what her wedding day day flower girls may look like.

Alexa, whose billionaire father Michael is the founder and CEO of Dell Technologies got engaged at Christmas, receiving a jaw-droping 12 carat emerald cut diamond set in a pavé halo.  

At the time Hamish Shephard, Founder of Bridebook.co.uk, the leading wedding planning app and website told Femail of the ring: ‘A 12-carat diamond engagement ring would likely start from $500,000, but could easily cost several million dollars based on its cut and brilliance. This engagement ring most likely cost in the range of $2-3million.’

The art collector and branding consultant was presented with the eye-popping diamond during a candlelit dinner on the beach at The Four Seasons in Kona, Hawaii, which is owned by her father.

Alexa has been dating millionaire real estate investor Harrison for a year after being set up on a blind date by mutual friend Mary Kitchen, following the breakdown of her relationship with Tinder CEO Sean Rad.

 Alexa first hit the headlines as an 18-year-old in 2012 when a photo of her family dining on a private jet on the way to Fiji made it on to the infamous Rich Kids of Instagram Tumblr. 

Days later she had her Twitter account suspended over security concerns after documenting her every move on social media, including exact dates for when she’d be shopping in New York or attending her high school graduation dinner. 

Aged 20, she started dating Tinder CEO Sean Rad, then 27, after meeting him on the dating app. 

Alexa studied at Columbia University and completed an internship at W magazine in New York.

How Michael Dell made his fortune  

Alexa’s father, Texas-born Michael Dell, 52, started off selling 19 computers out of his dorm room at the University of Texas during his freshman year. 

He’d made $80,000 by the end of term and, unsurprisingly, did not return for his sophomore year. 

In 1984 at the age of 19, he founded Dell with just $1000 after deciding to sell computers directly to customers, cutting out the middleman and passing on a reduction of 15 per cent on typical prices.

His direct-selling model revolutionised the market and just eight years later, he became the youngest CEO ever to earn a ranking on the Fortune 500.

He started selling computers online in 1996, the same year Dell launched its first server, leading to internet sales of $1 million in sales a day from dell.com. By 2001 the company was the world’s largest PC maker.

In 2016, Dell merged with computer storage giant EMC. At $60 billion it was the largest ever technology acquisition.

According to Forbes, he is the tenth richest man in tech and number 38 in the world ranking of billionaires.

Through the Michael & Susan Dell foundation, he’s provided $1.38 billion in funding to organisations that support education, health and family economic stability in the US, India and South Africa since 1999. 

The entrepreneur is married to Susan Lieberman and the couple share four children.

Michael Dell, 52, has an estimated fortune of $23.5 billion and is the 37th richest man in the world

On LinkedIn she states she’s been working as a Brand and Business Development Strategist for startups for the past four years, as well as contributing to her parents’ Michael & Susan Dell Foundation. 

Most recently, the foundation donated $36 million to rebuilding parts of Texas ravaged by Hurricane Harvey.  

In an interview with Nextshark.com she revealed that her privileged upbringing hasn’t been without its pitfalls, saying that all challenges people go through are ‘relative’. 

Who is Alexa’s new fiancé Harisson Refoua?

Arshia Harisson Refoua, 40, is a wealthy property investor who seems to prefer keeping a low profile, compared with his Instagram-loving partner. 

However, he hit the headlines in 2014 when he sued his former tenant , presenter Kelly Osborne, for damages of $50,000, claiming she had trashed his apartment.

According to TMZ, Arshia Refoua filed a lawsuit which alleged that Kelly allowed her dog to urinate in the West Hollywood home and caused water damage after leaving the bath tub running.

He also accused Kelly of destroying the home’s hardwood floors by failing to clean up the dog waste before she vacated the property.

The legal move came after the star sued for the return of her $18,700 deposit which he claims he withheld to repair the condo.

The pair settled the dispute in 2015 when Osbourne’s attorneys filed for the litigation to be dismissed. 

Each side agreed to pay their own costs and fees, but no other terms were divulged. 

Although he has nowhere near the level of wealth of her father, Refoua is thought to be a multimillionaire, thanks to his property investments. 

In 2016, he bought the Creekside Place Retail Center in Santa Clarita Valley for $9.65 million. 

‘As most kids have experienced, I’ve had friends in the past who weren’t always what they appeared to be. It really sucked at the time, but now I’m grateful to have experienced what I have. 

‘It’s helped shape my ability to judge character and because of that I’ve been able to surround myself with more positive people in life.’

She described her hobbies as hiking with her friends and French bulldog Colette, or travelling on long weekends to experience new cultures. 

Alexa and her new fiancé have had quite the jet set time in recent weeks, with Instagram snaps showing them in Florence, Venice, Tuscany, Paris and Aspen. 

They also stopped off in London and Soho Farmhouse in Oxfordshire where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle enjoyed secret getaways before news of their engagement broke.
