After a few days of excitement yesterday evening the time was finally there to collect my price at the Marie Claire Prix de la Mode.
Time to strike a pose. Off course their was a photo wall at the entrance and their was no escaping it so I tried my best to stay as cool as possible. Haha not an easy task but I manged to stand tall and control my nerves just enough so nobody noticed this was my first time (at least I hope so). Luckily I survived without making a fool out of myself.
At the reception we enjoyed some champagne and I did a little interview for Marie Claire.
After the reception it was time for diner and the awards show. On the stage of the beautiful Stadsschouwburg of Amsterdam we were all seated at refined round tables, all decorated with lovely white roses and silver chandeliers. The delicious 3 course diner was provided by star chef Roger Rassin from the famous restaurant La Rive in Amsterdam.
After the last course I got my award presented by the editor in Chief of Marie Claire NL, May-Britt Mobach.
Me and the winner of The Best Dutch Model; Bette Franken.
And now all I have to do is find a good place for my first ever award. Special thanks to the Marie Claire NL team for making this a night to remember! xo Hanneke
