February 13th, 2017.
I thought last year's Elle Style Awards were very cool - insofar as I am somebody capable of making such a judgement. They were held at the Tate Britain and attended by such luminaries as Karlie Kloss, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Elizabeth Olsen, Noomi Rapace, Liv Tyler and Stella McCartney.
This year? Well, there was a doorway and some branded planter boxes, the event wasn't publicised, and the highest profile award recipient (who is also on the cover of the latest issue of the magazine) didn't deign to attend. It's hard to believe that 24hrs ago I was in the front row photographing The 2017 Baftas.....
Still, here's how it went down:
So.. that was that. I'm not going to lie, I've had better, more inspiring events I've photographed, but rarely so soon after an event that was as massive as yesterday's Baftas, and perhaps more disappointing in comparison to the event itself in the prior year. And the non-attendance of Emma Watson, after all the promotion of her front cover and being an inspiration, was puzzling.
Still... as a precursor to London Fashion week, it serves a purpose. And since I was burning numerous calories while standing outside in the blistering cold, I probably lost some weight. And most of us, myself included, can afford to lose some weight.
And it's another one for the Archive of Movie premieres, the next event of which will be an *actual* premiere.
Until next time!
Btw : if you want to know when I post one of these journals, feel free to follow me on Facebook, Twitter, or in person but I'm a fast walker and have boring hobbies.
