Champagne and Cosmetics

This week I was invited to the very first edition of the 'I Love Beauty Awards', organised by Flair and Ici Paris XL.
It was a grim Wednesday, pouring with rain as it so often does on a Belgian June day, but that didn't stop the guests from dressing to the nines and getting their hair and make-up did*. Armed with my newly acquired crappy umbrella, I made my way to the event and when I arrived I was immediately dazzled by the sheer magnitude of the room and the touches of pink everywhere.
I had a lovely time chatting and outfit-watching with my fab counterparts Lisha and Nini of Joliette, IT-Girl's Kim and Maaike from Honest Beauty. I also saw my other blogger friends like Laura, Cyrielle, Emi and Klodia again, which was lovely.
Numerous 'best product' awards were handed to cosmetics representatives in a whirlwind show, lewd nudity courtesy of the Crazy Horse girls. The biggest star of the night was the gorgeous Elettra Rossellini Wiedemann. Yes, daughter of Isabella Rossellini, granddaughter of Ingrid Bergman and current face of LancĂ´me. And as I was making my way to the lovely peeps of Belmodo, of course I almost ran her over. Mes excuses, Elettra dahling
After the awards, DJ Martin Solveig kept the bass thumping and I ended this glamorous evening voyaging home with the hilarious Marie from Oona, who had so gracefully invited me in the first place.
