If I didn’t have the pictures to prove it I wouldn’t believed it happened! It didn’t seem real but at the same time I experienced it all first hand.
I walked the red carpet at the world premier of Disney’s The Jungle Book.
I believe this was a once in a lifetime opportunity, thanks to being asked to join the #JungleBookEvent in LA from April 3-5.
Here is how I remember experiencing it, 48 hours later:
What I Wore:
This was a dress that I had in my closet for a few years and I absolutely LOVE it. *side note: it is washable!
Pockets. If you are going to walk a red carpet and want to take pictures you need a place for your phone. Pockets are the perfect place for your phone with out having to worry about finding the perfect clutch.
The Jewelry was from The Firefly collection featuring Austrian Swarovski crystals as well as Japanese and Czech glass beads. All pieces are hand made in Guatemala. I am fortunate that Kimman’s was able to lend me the pieces for the event. Celebrities get loaned jewelry all the time! How lucky am I that I had a local boutique support me in this way!?
Do you see the green plastic bracelet? Yup. We were banded before we went into the premiere. It was an easy way for security to check who was ticketed and who was not. I am glad the bands were Jungle Book Green. It was very thematic.
Who I Saw:
Giancarlo Esposito (voice of “Akela”)
This was taken from across the red carpet. I had the opportunity to interview Mr. Esposito earlier in the day and it was a wonderful interview! I will have more in the coming days on that interview. ps…he wore the same hat in the interview!
Here is a better photo:
Director Jon Favreau
I am sure he was giving a great interview because the blogger group interviewed him earlier in the day and it was an amazing experience. I was impressed with personable he was and the level of passion he has for this film was palatable in the room.
More on the interview soon!
This is a much better photo! You got to love a director taking selfies with the people who love his work.
I turned the corner and there she was! Lupita Nyong’o (voice of “Raksha”)
We interviewed her earlier in the day and I can’t wait to tell you what she shared about the strong women in her life!
When walking the red carpet it is nice to have a friend take pictures for you. Thanks to Summer at Dirty Floor Diaries for being my photo buddy.
Just to document that my feet were actually on the carpet I had to take photographic evidence.
Like I said in the video…. I savored the moments and documents them so that I could convince myself they actually happened.
