i still can't believe i was there to experience it.
the fact that i got the job in france, on the riviera, in one of the world's film cities.
that we lived so close we could hear screaming fans from our apartment.
that we got to act cool and say "ugh - tourists." haha.
it was a great time.
and now - i know what you really want - the pictures :P
the palais des festivals, where all the action is :)
this was my fave thing. they screened films on the beach! for free!
the movie screen is built on a dock in the ocean. they also gave everyone blankets. the man walking is selling roasted nuts. toes in the sand - best way to watch a movie ever.
the famed red carpet :)
the collection of ladders that screaming fans stand on.
waiting in line...
crazy weird and expensive cars. (this one was in Monaco on the night before the Formula 1)
and now i present:
the adventures of mel's only 'fancy' dress
"I'M ON A BOAT" ridiculousness on a yacht in Monaco.
on the way to the VIP room club. we got in! michelle rodriguez was the dj! it was a crazy fun night.
& the final adventure of the dress:
i won tickets to see the closing night film at the Cannes Film Festival. they drew less than 500 names for the whole city and i won! tux & bowtie mandatory (which i loved) steve had to borrow one.
we got to walk the red carpet.
perfect end to a great year.
i miss you already cannes.
