Question for the ladies

I have been dating a very petite, svelte woman. She's 5'-3", 95 lbs., and amazingly manages to have curves in just the right places. She is very very nice. She works extremely hard and to her, social occasions are generally time to blow off steam and have fun.
Here's my question. Friday night, I took her to a large arts benefit that is attended by all the socialites and mavens in our community. I was dressed super conservatively in a coat and tie, and just being my slightly nerdy self. She was dressed *extremely* hot -- I wouldn't say slutty, but just bringing it. She had on the Christian Louboutin sandals that I'd given her, which have insanely high heels, a short form-fitting dress, and a full-on pro hair and makeup job.
Here's the thing. To me, she looked great. I was glad to have such a hot babe on my arm. She was way, way dialed up on the hotness scale, but she enjoys doing that and did it for that reason.
But today all these indirect comments came back to me, to the effect that the socialites and doyennes highly disapproved. "What street corner did he find her on???" I mean, these are all 40- and 50-something women who are pretty cool people so I respect their opinion. But am also very hurt by it.
Here's my question: to you, what's the line between appropriate and inappropriate? Where does elegant end and slutty begin? Or should I just ignore their comments and let the gf heed her own counsel?
