I was thrilled to be invited to a very prestigious Charity Fashion show at the Novotel in Cannes to comment on the latest fashion trends but more importantly to bring awareness to a very important charity called Girl Rising.
Girl Rising is a global campaign for girls’ education.
They use the power of storytelling to share the simple truth that educating girls can transform societies. Girl Rising unites girls, women, boys and men who believe every girl has the right to go to school and the right to reach her full potential.
The mission is to change the way the world values the girl.
Everything the charity does is to ensure that girls’ education is part of the mainstream conversation.
Being someone who knows a little more than average about fashion I have to say I was excited when I arrived just in time to see the beginning of the fashion show. The same group of amateur models were presenting outfits by different designers. The presented fashion was more the average day-to-day wear but when MyAnnika dresses took the stage and presented the new summer collection I was blown away!!!
The models suddenly had a change in attitude. It seemed as if the sexy badge dresses transformed the girls into real superstars. Finally I saw the attitude I was missing before!
The Hervé Léger style dresses by MyAnnika were definitely the highlight of this Charity fashion event in Cannes.
Girl Rising managed to collect a couple of thousand Euros for their Charity this evening. We all had a great evening, free drinks and snacks and made some great new friends and supported a very worthy cause!
Just take a look at the pictures and comment in the section below on how you feel about the outfits!
Max and I were invited to the Festival de Cannes 2014 to meet with Hollywood actors and fashion designers presenting their latest works on the red carpet.
We caught a beautiful day walking down the Croisette. When we passed by the famous Carlton Hotel Max received a call from his dear friend Aaron Lee, an up-and-coming Hollywood actor and model, most famous for his Audi Commercial. Unfortunately there was not enough time for a full interview but I am sure we will hear about him again!
We got invited to a beautiful lunch down by the beach. The food was fantastic and it was very nice to have a healthy lunch right next to the sea with fresh fish and delicious smoothies.
We were on a mission to meet Hollywood actor Vincent de Paul who just wrote for the celebrity section in our Blog. He wanted to meet with us to discuss an invitation to Monaco but never showed up or returned our call this day so we had to let him go because we were asked to take a look at the latest creations of a jewelry designer which we might feature in the newcomer section soon…
To award himself for a long day of work Max managed to do some last-minute shopping at Louis Vuitton for the fashion show in Monaco at the following day. By chance he discovered a t-shirt he thought was long sold out. It was a simple shirt with the print of the original Louis Vuitton and we decided that he will have to wear this one during the LV fashion show in Monte-Carlo the next day.
After a long day we got invited to the Hedda movie premiere private party on the rooftop of the hotel Five Cannes.
