Last night I had a great time attending TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival – duh), as a VIP guest with L’Oreal Paris. I was lucky enough to see the premier of Deepwater Horizon, featuring Kurt Russell, Kate Hudson and Mark Wahlberg. Deepwater Horizon is a harrowing, courageous account of the 2010 oil rig tragedy and the corporate greed that caused it. I’ll tell you right now – the film was amazing! I laughed, I cried, I was terrified. Deewater Horizon had it all.
It was so fabulous hiding out in the L’Oreal Paris VIP lounge which overlooked the red carpet from above. No need to get crushed in the crowds while star gazing. Yep, I attempted to maintain my cool and not shriek when Marky Mark stepped onto the red carpet. I mean, I’m in the VIP lounge, sipping champers right?
No, not right. I promptly pushed everyone out of the way to see if I could get a great pic (my snapchat story was pretty funny). Memories of grade 8 and stuffing my crop top (little did I know I would one day be a DDD) to see Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch play at a local concert hall in Toronto.This is the window that overlooked the red carpet and protected me from the crowds.L’Oreal Paris had a number of fun treats to grab including the infallible matte liquid lipstick and the new oil-infused nail polish line le vernis l’huile.
What Did I Wear to Tiff?
L’Oreal Paris is one of the sponsors of Tiff, hence the VIP lounge. People can line up outside the lower part of the lounge to have their picture taken on a really cool Austin Powers type gold retro chair.
I had a great time watching the Red Carpet from above and seeing a really good film! Thanks L’Oreal Paris for an awesome night!
