Just last week I watched the sunset from a beautiful balcony in Clifton Camps Bay. Cape Town’s who’s who in the media and fashion industry was out in full force to celebrate Brazilian super model and Victoria Secret angel, Adriana Lima, as the new face of Vogue Eyewear. It’s new Spring/Summer 2015 communication campaign with three glamorous international muses: Brazilian model Adriana Lima, Indian actress Deepika Padukone and Chinese actress Liu Shi-Shi.
This marks Adriana Lima’s first appearance for the brand, while Deepika Padukone and Liu Shi-Shi starred in the 2013 international Vogue Eyewear campaign.
“Adriana is the essence of the Vogue Eyewear woman. She’s fun, flirty and embraces everything about fashion,” says Mariavittoria Di Stasi, Vogue Eyewear Brand Director.“With these three models, we want to underline the importance Vogue Eyewear sees in all women throughout the world. Even though they are very different and come from different places, they are equally precious and important representations of women – each one with their own distinct style and concept of fashion.”
The event itself oozed the lifestyle of a Vogue woman, the venue was breathtaking and the music was pumping. We even had the opportunity to have our hair and makeup done and touched up whenever we needed it. A little shopping experience was also part of the evening as we got to choose our very own pair of Vogue Eyewear sunnies. There were beauty mirrors available and more than enough time for you to try on every pair you liked.
After a short presentation and welcome from the MC of the night, Poppy Ntshongwana, we enjoyed great food, drinks and took as many selfies as we our cellphone battery life allowed us to. I even managed to get a selfie with Poppy who hosts the radio show “The House of Poppy” on 5fm everyday between 10am – 1pm. It’s safe to say I’m a fan of the show lol.
I feel that in some way we were saying bye to the end of summer but definitely a good way to end it off though. Today marks the official first day of the autumn, a season I’m quite fond of. I have a lot of great looks planned and posts coming up on the blog.
Here’s to wishing you guys an autumn season filled with golden brown leaves and beautiful backdrops!
Happy Fall to all.
