It has been quite a while since I last posted, however I have been so busy studying for exams and doing school work that I haven’t even had a second to breathe. Now, as the exam nightmare is over, a long, long summer is ahead of me. What better occasion to kick start summer than a gala charity dinner? Yesterday I went to the Cash & Rocket second annual fundraiser dinner at the Hotel De Russie in Rome, final stop of the tour where 70 women drove 70 red cars for 4 days from Barcelona, to Cannes, to Florence and finally to Rome gathering money for 3 African charities. Among numerous sponsors of the tour and the event, there was Valentino, one of my favorite brands above all that I have always admired for its innate elegant style. The dress code of the event was RED. All (almost all) guests participating at the gala wore red dresses, gowns and accessories… “red for anger” against hunger and injustices in Africa, said one of the spokeswomen,and undoubtedly, also “red for Valentino”.
