A night with Elle Woods and MAC Cosmetics

Pink was the motto, but most of us came dressed in black... :-)

Last night MAC Cosmetics Austria invited a couple of Viennese bloggers to watch the musical "Legally Blonde" at Ronacher theater where MAC provides the makeup for the cast of the show.

In case you don't remember Elle Woods, the main character of show, let me refresh your mind a little :-)

Are you with me?
Elle Woods: the attractive blonde California girl who attends Harvard law school to win back her ex-boyfriend who dumped her, played by Reese Witherspoon in the 2001 Hollywood movie.

Well Elle's shoes - or should we say stiletto pumps - were filled by someone else last night:


Barbara Obermeier, who swirled around in those stilettos like no one else (I wish the meet-and-greet with her had been after the show - I really wanted to ask her how she did it, because many of her shoes didn't even have securing straps, and she did some serious jumping around in those heels!)... but I am diverging here... :-)

Anyway, to show you what I mean, here are some pictures of the show, courtesy of Vereinigte Bühnen Wien (click to enlarge):

And let's not forget the hot UPS delivery guy in his even hotter hot pants: :-)

It really was a fun night and I sure would like to thank MAC for taking us.

The bloggers who were there with me were:

Am I missing anyone?

The evening started with a peak behind the scenes of the Ronacher theater with chief makeup artist Gabi Nussbaumer who explained the makeup of the show as well as the making of the many wigs:

And there were really many many wigs:

 One girl was just getting her hair fixed up:

 Makeupwise the Ronacher was the place to be for me: MAC everywhere!! *woot*:

Before we sat down for the performance, MAC's PR lady Katharina showed us the upcoming MAC Collections for spring 2014, we also got to look at and swatch the RiRi Hearts MAC collection that's coming out in December as well as the current Christmas collection:

 And as if that weren't enough already we even received some goodies which I will be happy to swatch for you!

All in all, it was a fun night with fun ladies and really nice musical staff at the Ronacher theater.

Thank you to everyone who made it possible!

Oh, and about the fact that most of us came dressed in black: There are two theories: either we have already adapted to the MAC dress code or we just wanted to play it safe...

I'll let you pick one! ;-)
