Well, it was my very first award show. Of course that year-end-awarding-event in high school doesn’t count! It feels great to just mingling, sipping wine and eat canapes (I do eat a lot, thank God to my great metabolism system) before the show started at 8.15 pm with a video presentation of Elle Indonesia‘s 3rd Anniversary fashion spreads with models Mateusz Rogenbuk (the March/April cover boy of Men’s Folio Indonesia) and the doll faced Ksenia Shapovalova (did you know that she was represented by Elite Milan?). Click here to visit the blog of Elle Indonesia‘s Associate Fashion Editor, Yoland Handoko, to see the superb fashion spreads of their 3rd Anniversary issue.
The first five awards of the night are Model of The Year – Kelly Tandiono (B Management) who looked so fresh in summer colored ensemble; Young Hairstylist of The Year – Tedza Syahriyal; Blogger of The Year – Michelle Koesnadi (the title will be ours next year, amen! LOL); Music Group of The Year – RAN (they also performed that night) and Woman Designer of The Year – Lenny Agustin who made an acceptance video due to her umrah to Mecca at the time.
Lenny Agustin presented five gold-ish looks and she was not the only designer held fashion show on the night. The others are Mel Ahyar/Luxurious Dream, Oka Diputra/Serenity Dream, Sapto Djojokartiko/Romantic Dream and Irsan/Surreal Dream. Edwan Handoko managed the choreography very well and the fabulous Qiqi Franky did the makeup. One of the highlights of the night was when Nien showed up from the opposite side of the runway and wearing a long-train kimono styled black dress. She walked gracefully and managed to presented the dress perfectly. Awesome!
The next five awards are Fashion Label of The Year – Danjyo Hiyoji; Young Make Up Artist of The Year – Husein Yunior; Young Photographer of The Year – Glenn Prasetya; Actress of The Year – Laura Basuki and Actor of The Year – Reza Rahadian. Teges Prita Soraya received a special award, Pond’s Woman of The Year and the much coveted award for Fashion Designer of The Year goes to our friend, Sapto Djojokartiko!! Congratulations mas Sapto, you deserved it!!
