Fabulous sports cars, glittery dresses, F1 drivers, A-list celebrities and international top models … Monaco F1 Grand Prix got it all!
Under the patronage of SAS Prince Albert II, the Amber Lounge Fashion Show which took place on Friday evening attended by Game of Thrones star Liam Cunningham, Victoria Secret’s supermodel Selita Ebanks and numerous F1 drivers including Felipe Nasr and Marcus Ericsson (Sauber), Nico Hulkenberg (Force India), Daniil Kvyat (Red Bull), Roberto Merhi and Will Stevens (Manor).
The show started with an acrobatic representation, followed by John Newman who live performed the Brit Award nominated song “Love Me Again” overlooking the Meridien Beach Plaza swimming-pool.
Sublimate Jessica Button who newly married F1 champion Jenson Button opened the models catwalk wearing summer couture pieces designed by Parisian brand Vionnet, Odabash and Mcdonald.
The auction offered among others an outstanding two-week villa vacation (with spa, exquisite food and full service) and a masterpiece painting of Steve McQueen.
An amount of 260,000 euros was collected in benefit of the Autism Rocks association during this charity event.
The star-studded Amber Lounge after-party had a lot of success thanks to its brilliant organization, stunning music mix and open bar service that kept guests dancing until the early hours.
Although Amber Lounge is a long party event (Friday, Saturday, Sunday), it first starts its concept with its Fashion Show on Friday and then offers to watch the Formula 1 Qualifying on Saturday and the Race on Sunday on-board the Amber Lounge celebrity yacht serving breakfast, gourmet buffet and even afternoon tea.
Sunday was found to be the highlight of the Amber Lounge week-end with F1 drivers Jenson Button, Sergio Perez and Race-winner Nico Rosberg coming to celebrate their last night in Monaco with giant champagne bottles and jet-setters including superstar Jason Derulo.
