MOODS OF NORWAY'S FASHION SHOW & AFTER PARTY:-))


With the owners/designers of the Norwegian fashion house, MOODS OF NORWAY!

For those of u who don't know of the fashion house, 'Moods of Norway' is the most prestigious fashion house in Norway with stores in Los Angeles on Robertson blvd and a store that will soon be opened in Soho in New York City!
They also made the uniforms for the Norwegian Olympic team which was really stylish and get this, the clothes are available for sale at their stores as well as on line:-)



I looooooooooooooved the PINK carpet, 
So refreshing and fun and young and everything Bubble Gum. 
As a matter of fact now that I think of it, I'm looking for a nail polish this exact colour for my toes!

There is a saying that one should always save the best for last and with the performance that the fashion house 'MOODS OF NORWAY' put up last night, I most definitely agree!
They closed out fashion week in Oslo last night and NOBODY wanted it to end.
It was't just a fashion show and after party, that would be an insult to what I saw last night. 
My darling fashionistas..........it was a PRODUCTION of magnificence!





I've been to a lot of RED carpet events for film premiers in Hollywood, and last night Moods was right up there with the rest of best film premiers:-)
For a split second I really did feel I was in LA.
There was popcorn, chocolates, candyfloss, finger food and pictures that you could take against the Mood's press wall that went straight to INSTAGRAM to share with all your friends plus a hard copy to take with u home! 

 The owners/designers of Moods of Norway!
FREE manicures! Wonderful, I have to admit, these guys thought of everything,....These guys are a girl's BEST friend!

 Cotton Candy! I cannot tell u when I last eat this, maybe when I was 6!


As if that was't enough, we were taken to the movies, literally! Yep, the fashion show was presented on stage with the most beautiful clothes for both men and women.
I'm putting in my order right NOW!
There were also circus acts in-between with contortionists, gymnasts and dancers and the MODELS came on stage with a 1950's theme while we the guests gyrated in our seats to the 
  JAMES BOND soundtrack blasting from the sound machines! SPEECHLESS!
 The entire theater was packed, one would have thought it was the release of the feature film,
 Sex & the City part 3!


 And so the show began..........




Super model Sonja Wander just took my breath away..............







 Super Model & Recording Artist, Mimi Blix was beyond beautiful, it was so great 2 c her on stage!
Mimi's Blog



This dancer above was simply AMAZING, going in and out as the models made and existed the stage!
I couldn't take my eyes off of him, and I'm a happily married woman she laughs!











The 'JAMES BOND theme was fantastic, 
MI6 would have been very proud:-))))











 BRAVO! Astanding ovation!

TREND/STYLE SETTERS!

And......
With celebrities left and right, I didn't know which way to turn.
So who was there?
The Editor-in-Chief of Norwegian Cosmopolitan magazine, Ingeborg Heldal, Party planner, Ronnie Ottem and his hubby Eirik,  Elisa Røtterud also from Cosmopolitan magazine, Stylist and Make-up Guru, Stephan Ulvund Øien and his boyfriend fashion designer, Kassem Collin Cherry, Actress, Marianne Westby and so many more fabulous people! 
Every seat in the huge theater had beach-striped blue and white gift bags for u to take home after the show.  
The whole theater was pumped up to the max with electric and intoxicating energy, making new friends and catching up with old friends that hadn't seen each other in a while.
The house was full of very beautiful people. 
And as the fashion show came to a close another door was opened........the after party that was in the same building, upstairs where nobody needed directions b'cos u could hear the sound of a live band and a girl sounding like the recording artist Prince.

 She was AMAZING!!!!!! Go MAYA!
Songstress and recording Artist, MAYA VIK brought the house down! 
EVERYBODY was dancing to beat of the music, myself included! 
What sensational performance Maya gave us!

 With Norwegian Super Model Sonja Wander, it was nice to see her on the runway an do her thing, a really lovely and down to earth person, Last time we met up was in Cannes.
 Studio 54!

 The amazing Marianne Jentegård, a fabulous fashion reporter @ Good Morning Norway on TV2!
She reminded me so much of the 70's Pop singer Blondie!
Marianne's website called VIXEN!

I danced and drank and forgot about my diet b'cos the finger food was so scrumptious and pint sized, I felt I could get away with a few mouthfuls that turned out to a whole lot more she laughs.
It was an amazing evening, the weather just to seemed to smile down on us, so warm and inviting, it wasn't a surprise that guests spilled outside to yet another decorated theme,...........STUDIO 54!
With a crystal ball to match! Ha!
My only regret last night, nope, I have 2, ......one, that I didn't have my film crew with me and 2, that all of u were't there to share it.
As I type this, I cannot for the life of me, think what Moods of Norway is going to present next year b'cos, this is by far the best show/production they have ever presented/produced.
I'm really looking forward to their store opening next month in New York, b'cos I know it's going to be  amazing. 
Take note fashionistas, THIS is how to throw a PARRTY:-)

 Marianne and I or as we were called last night.......
Blondie & Grace Jones.
It was sooooooooo STUDIO 54!
 With style God & Television personality, Cato Stenerud.

Until next time my darlings, xoxo
