I am not a Paparazzi – Part 1

by Lee Oliveira on August 20, 2010

Last month I had the opportunity to attend a movie premiere for the first time. So, there I was going to see “Killers“. A good friend of mine called me offering a guest pass to the paparazzi area which enabled me to photograph this glamourous night. How could I say no. However, it was another big challenge for me but I think I did ok.

There I stood on the side of the runway with my camera ready. First came a few Australians TV personalities followed by the main character and the director. I could not help but ask them to stop for a few seconds so I could take their photos.

The paparazzi were looking at me trying to understand the reason why I was taking pictures of almost everybody. To me, these people were fashionistas. I was laughing and saying at the same time “I AM NOT A PAPARAZZI“. They asked me what was I doing there and mostly why I had a perfect spot if I wasn’t one of them. I just replied, “handsome people are always on the front row”.

If you ever have the chance to attend a red carpet premiere, wouldn’t you look your best and wait for a camera to flash at you? I would.

These fashionistas were my stars for the night. Here are some of my favourite looks.

Which fashionistas in your opinion stand out the most?

The main star of the movie “Killers” will be coming on part 2. I think you all know who I am talking about it!

Ps… please don’t hate me! I just like to tease you all a little bit.

Great pictures Lee! I love the 2nd fashionista’s outfit.:)SarahD

Eleonora August 20, 2010

Ahahaha 😀 It was so funny I guess! You are so lucky! 😀
I really like the lady dressing in pink, and I think I’m gonna copy her hairstyle :p

Alienor August 20, 2010

so cute !

ryan August 20, 2010

Great photos, I love the second picture, her all black style is really working for me. And it looks good in contrast to her beautiful blond hair.

Jude August 20, 2010

Wow, love your photos! The couple in the last one look so fantastic-o!

Manon August 20, 2010

The second outfit is fantastic!

Kristin August 20, 2010

That lady is rockin’ your baby bump. Love it!

Laura Tenshi August 20, 2010

Haha, what a great reply you gave them. That ought to shut them up, what you do is more than “just” taking pictures, you seek glamorous outfits to share with us. I like the woman with the nerd glasses and the second girl.

Joanna August 21, 2010

HAHAHA. Everyone knows, good-looking people always get the front row. Duh.

And I’m partial to the lovely lady in the leather leggings and sharp-shouldered white blazer. If I ever needed an example of a white blazer that doesn’t make you look like an ER doctor, there it is.

I adore the second outfit :)

KC August 21, 2010

i love the pregnant woman’s outfit. she’s not hiding her baby bump. i love women who are not ashamed that they’re getting big or not looking so slim because they’re pregnant. but the most beautiful woman i’ve seen while she’s carrying a baby inside her is still angelina jolie. won’t you agree?
on a different note, how was the movie, lee? i’m thinking if i should watch it.

Grit and Glamour August 21, 2010

Great shots, and what a great experience, Lee! I can’t wait to see part 2. And can I just say girlfriend in the leathers has SICK style!

Fashion Profiles August 22, 2010

The second fashionista is my favorite… I like the blazer she wore to tame the black leather materials she wore for the red carpet… =)

I think you have paparazzi skills… I have no red carpet experience yet so if given the chance… I will surely look better than everyone else… =)

Sherin August 22, 2010

Unfortunately, I don’t know much about Australian TV but I think that I could be very happy in the outfit worn by the girl in the 2nd and 3rd photos :) But excellent shots of them all, Lee! They all look great! Looking forward to the next installment of photos from this premiere!!
