It’s been a while since I wrote something personal on mattgstyle.com.
I wanted to share my experience of the Cannes Film Festival with you.
I received this amazing opportunity, thanks to Orange.
They invited Annabel and me to go to the film festival to capture their new, and latest plan: “Unlimited Data”. Basically, we could share as much as we would like to, during our trip, using mobile data. This is since roaming is now finally free in Europe -thank god for that. Enough talking about using data though, and back to the festival. I felt so very lucky.
I remember back in the day, when I started blogging, I used to see all my favourite big bloggers among all of the celebrities going to this film-festival -all in impressive dresses and good-looking tuxedos. Well, this time it was our turn to walk on this big, famous, red carpet. Downstairs, ready to go, we were waiting on our car, which took us to around 20 meters from the film festival. Yes, our hotel was in front of the Palais des Festival: Hôtel Barrière Le Majesticie. This alone was a dream in itself. All famous celebrities were also staying here. There was paparazzi continuously waiting in front of our hotel entrance.
After the film, we were invited to the official after-party, sponsored by Orange. This was massive. Although I’m currently not drinking -trying to get back into shape for summer, we definitely showed Cannes our best dance moves. I heard “The Blaze” for the first time, and I was blown away. They bring such a cool and unique sound and level of music. After all of this, we went back to our hotel to rest, before our early trip back home.
Thank you, Orange, for this amazing opportunity.
