Fashion Loves The Monaco Grand Prix!

I never knew that my husband would be one to know more about what is going on in fashion than I. However today, he proved me wrong. 

Today is the Monaco 2013 Grand Prix which takes place in Monaco which is located off the French Rivera in Western Europe, just in case you didn't know. My husband has just informed me that it is one of the most prestigious automobile races in the world.

The video below will educate you on the who, what, when and where of the Monaco Grand Prix 2013

Okay, so my husband knows that I am not completely a race car fan. However, it is one of the only sporting events that I find can keep my attention for more than 5 minutes so I am tuning it to it this morning. (It's 3:15pm in Monaco right now.) But anyway, his main objective was to inform me of the fashion shows that take place the day before the races begin in Monaco at the infamous Amber Lounge in order to raise money for some of the worlds most amazing charities. Read the paragraph below to get the complete story.

And here is a clip from this years fashion festivities in Monaco:

Looks like a pretty awesome place to be! I'm putting this event on my bucket list for sure ;)

Oh, and in case you've never heard of the Amber Lounge, here some information that I found on the Amber Lounge Facebook page that will get you "in-the-know":
