GLAMOUROUS James and I had the incredible chance to be invited right before our trip to Milan at the Veuve Clicquot 2012, business woman awards held at the Lakeside in Zürich on saturday. We were absolutely thrilled to take part in this incredible project, attend the show and of course meet the nominees. So on saturday morning we arrived at the Dolder Grand hotel located in the highs of Zürich were we had the chance to change and rest a bit before going to the awards. It was honestly one of the most gorgeous hotels I have seen in Switzerland, so a big thank you to Christelle for organising this gorgeous stay. For the occasion I have decided to wear the most beautiful red dress ever, a little Jessica Rabbit inspired isn’t it? I always dreamt of finding the perfecrt red dress. There is nothing more fascinating to me than a woman in red. I just think it is so feminin, sexy, glamourous, chic and elegant at the same time. So when I saw this one on www.clubcouture.cc I couldn’t resist, it was the perfect gown for the Veuve Clicquot awards and it made the right impression I believe.
Though ”business woman” awards might sound a little bit feminist, there has been nothing such about this event. For those of you who know a little bit about the famous Veuve Clicquot champagne story then you might know that it has been ruled and founded by the one and only woman : Veuve Clicquot herself. After loosing her husband she dedicated herself into this whole business and now through generations and generations the Veuve Clicquot business woman awards is a way to celebrate her story and of course the upcoming business women who follow her lead. Such strong, ambitious and powerfull woman. Among the nominees were five gorgeous and incredibly talented who build up a whole empire with the help of their brains and hands. They all deserved the price of course but I already had a big crush on Bea Petri, owner and founder of the Schminkbar. And not only because she has created something that is involved with fashion and beauty but because of her warm smile and charisma, for me she was the winner. And so after a delicious 4 course dinner we finally had the chance to hear the winner announced : Bea Petri has won the Veuve Clicquot business woman awards 2012. It seems like she didn’t only seduce me but the whole jury. So the lesson to me is, girls believe in yourself and if you have a dream or an idea burning inside of you, just go for it. The only rule is to follow your heart, it will lead you to the right place.
