Pretty in Pink


I’m in love. With Cannes. With the Film Festival. And mostly with the lovely people at the Cannes Press Office who’ve granted me a pink card this year! It means better access to films and press conferences.

We all queue forever here (there are over 1,800 journalists who want to see these films!) but when you have a yellow or blue card, you queue a LOT longer…and usually only to be told, after waiting over an hour, that you can’t get in.

So I’m soooo happy with my pretty pink press pass! Passport to fun, movies, entertainment, inspiration! Like I was telling a friend yesterday, the Cannes Film Festival is the one place on earth where you truly get to feel like dreams can come true.

And it all starts tomorrow…
