Burns victim Dana Vulin made a surprise red carpet appearance at one of Perth's hottest social events last night.

Ms Vulin stepped out at the opening night of horse spectacular Cavalia wearing a dress for the first time since her attack.

"It is so nice to be out," she said.

Ms Vulin was joined by her sister Svetlana Velickovski who has been her support through her long ordeal.

"It is great to be out with her and so nice to see her finally wear a dress again," Ms Velickovski said.

Ms Vulin suffered burns to 60 per cent of her body after she was set alight in her Rivervale home in February last year by Natalie Dimitrovska.

Dimitrovska was jailed for 17 years, three years short of the maximum term.

Ms Vulin said her recovery was slow but steady and that she had been overwhelmed by the public's support.

While not a fan of horses, she said she was looking forward to the equestrian spectacular that has already wowed audiences all over Australia.

Ms Vulin and her sister had a drink before the show in the exclusive VIP tent along with other guests including Rhonda Wyllie and Jeff Browne, Melanie Greensmith and Mark McEntee and Andrew Forrest and his daughters.
