My Platform is “Everybody Knows Somebody- Bringing Awareness to Eating Disorders.” “Every Body is Beautiful” was a night to promote just that and to spread a positive body image and greater self-esteem. I co-hosted this event with two fabulous women, Anke Michaelson( photographer) and Kristina Persson(Hair and Make-up artist. ) They own Bebe Bardot Photography, to see their work go to www.bebebardotphoto.com .
In order for this night to have happened I needed their help. Months before the celebration happened Anke and Kristina worked dynamically to transform everyday women into pin-up and glamour inspired models. We chose pin-up and glamour styles because we felt it shows empowerment of women. The pin-up era also showcases a different body type of woman; the full figured woman and it was SEXY as hell! Each woman had a different theme that exemplified them. All of these women are of all different shapes and sizes and were a true representation that every BODY is beautiful. On the night of the event these pictures were displayed for all the guests to see.
The party was so much fun! I hope everyone else enjoyed it as much as Anke, Kristina and I did. We did make $3,000 for the night and still have donations coming in. When a final count is done, all the proceeds will be donated to the National Eating Disorder Association. Thank you to everyone who supported us and made this night a success.
