It looks like a fairy tale…. Really! Almost like a movie scene! Or an all white dream…

But it’s none of the above, it is very real, and this reality is called Diner en Blanc with a French accent please!

On it’s 6th edition in NYC, and my third time, seems like each year it only gets bigger and better!

 I’s not everyday that you see a crowd all dressed in white with crazy hats, masks, carrying chairs, tables and baskets walking around the city right? So, when that happens, this question comes up several times, maybe a couple of thousand…  What is Diner en Blanc???

 So, bellow is all you need to know about this amazing experience that intrigues so many outsiders.

Dîner en Blanc New York 2016

Everything started in 1988 when the founder of Dinner en Blanc François Pasquier wanted to gather all of his friends to reconnect after the family spent time abroad. Since his backyard wasn’t big enough, he had the idea to invite all of them for a picnic dinner party out at a public space, so the first Diner en Blanc was born and it took place in the Parc de Bagatelle in the Bois de Boulogne. Francois requested everyone to dress in white so they could find each other easy. And 28 years later…

The founder’s son, co-founder Aymeric Pasquier seen bellow in the photo, in 2009 together with Sandi Safi expanded the Diner en Blanc to Montreal, and founded Diner en Blanc International which has brought the event to those cities across four continents, mostly by a franchise model.

In NYC 5,000 lucky New Yorkers had the pleasure to be part of it, but the waiting list only for the city this year was 45,000 people, making it one of most exclusive and desired Manhattan event of the year.

Part of the tradition is that the location is kept secret until minutes before the event starts. And it changes every year, making it one of the coolest secret things to do in NYC and the hardest to crash. This year it took place at beautiful Robert F. Wagner Park, just north of Battery Park, with a breathtaking view of the Statue of Liberty as the background in the waters of the Hudson River.

 The coolness and traditions don’t stop there! It is mandatory that all guests bring their own food, tables, chairs, fine silverware, china, and decorations, all in white! The more extravagant and fabulous the better!

Talking about fabulous, style and elegance! Simply one of the most beautiful and stylish parties I ever been! Guests elaborate amazing extravagant gowns, hair pieces, led lighted outfits, fairy wings, tuxedos, wigs! They really spend time to create all of it!

When dinning, guests listened to a live Jazz band, while professionals swing danced around the venue in pairs.

 After dinner, the jazz band left to give place for a DJ that made the dance floor go crazy with great electronic, top pop hits and 80s and 90s hiphop, R&B and some pop rock.

 After seen all of this, if you are wondering how you can be part of this amazing experience. You have 2 options. Or you need to know someone who is already registered as a host or leader and ask them to sponsor you to try to receive an invitation. Or you can register online and hope to one day receive an invitation code, if you get one, which is extremely hard, then you proceed to sign up. I told you it was exclusive and the waiting list is 45,000 only for NYC! But maybe you will get lucky! 14352342_909238592513335_6911561996394426178_o

Closing with a golden key, or I should say with a white key… A picture of me and Aymeric Pasquier, the Co-founder of Diner en Blanc International. Merci Mr. Pasquier for one more amazing event!

Au revoir everyone and hopefully we can see you next year somewhere in the city dressed in all white!

Hello, Girls!

.Esse look acreditem ou não é design meu :-) isso mesmo, desenhei, escolhi tecido e mandei para o Ateliê da Tere! Ela fez exatamente como eu queria! Só infelizmente bem no dia que planejei em usá-lo esfriou muito! E improvisei colocando minha Spanx por baixo, mas o planejado seria usar somente com uma hot pants.

Ficou bem mais escuro do que o planejado por este motivo, mas tentei dar uma quebrada no look fazendo um penteado descontraĂ­do, optei pelo coque estilo samurai com franja.
