50th Monte Carlo Television Festival - the Red Carpet

There's a lot of red carpet in town at the moment. The Grimaldi Forum is the venue for four days of the television festival.

The statuette awarded is in the form of a Golden Nymph, by the sculptor François-Joseph Bosio. Monsieur Bosio was born in Monaco and was the official portraitist to Napoleon. His works can be found in the Louvre in Paris.

In the last photo you can see some of the fans waiting for their favourite television stars to arrive. Just like the Oscars!

OOh she would look great in the garden if a little scary. She's like a giant climbing frame for the dolls. x

Light years away, but this statue reminds me of Southeast Asia.

Unlike Kate, the statue reminds me of the Little Mermaid in Copenhagen. At first I was disappointed when I saw how small it is but maybe that's the point. This piece, however, is the color of money, what television is all about.

If one wants to put red carpeting in ones apartment there must be some good deals in Monte Carlo!!!
