I had the honor to be invited to the event of the year: BIAF 2014; which is a unique festival that introduces distinguished personalities and figures that have had a special and unique mark in communities and fields all over the world.
I was so excited to be part of such an important event, but it was just my luck that it happened to be on the same night that I had an episode of Aghani Aghani on MTV Lebanon, but that was certainly not going to stop me. I wrapped up the episode and went in a hurry to the dressing room and got myself ready and headed straight to Zaytuna Bay where the event was held in the heart of Downtown.
I cloned myself or appeared from nowhere, no one expected me to juggle both work and the event but yet I did it, I felt a certain satisfaction to have been able to achieve that “mission impossible”.
For such a marvelous event, the dress was to be chosen with care, that is why I went with a classy long backless dress, that complimented my body perfectly to make it sexy and attractive. I chose the daring red color with a matching shiny golden Louboutin shoes. I’m a big fan of keeping things natural no matter the event, so I had light makeup and natural hair.
A wide media & PR campaign was carefully selected for the festival and a royal reception was held for the honorees who attended the event, including the red carpet that was nothing less than the ones held in international festivals with full interviews and interaction with the journalists , plus the wall of fame for pictures to be taken in a neat matter.
I was so astonished with the attention to details and the whole organizing of the event, I loved how everything went according to plan.
What is special about BIAF is shedding light on people who are behind the scenes, like directors rather than just actors, composers rather than singers, and producers rather than presenters. I caught myself getting emotional seeing everyone feeling appreciated for their hard work, which I see as a necessity for progress in any field.
This night was such a roller coaster but definitely worth it.
