Happy Birthday Hun, you are the coolest 80 year old ever

Dear Shaded Viewers,

As you read this on Wednesday the coolest woman on the planet, in my opinion, Michele Lamy, is celebrating her 80 th birthday in Venice . I was invited  but unfortunately I’m not able to attend. I’m there in spirit. I love this inspiring woman full of energy, spirit and creativity. An athlete, a designer, a business woman and the definition of an Icon.  Michele was my President ten years ago at ASVOFF 6 and will be the President of ASVOFF 16.

The party starts at 23h and ends at 4 am, the DJ line up: Sama Abdulhadi, Pandoras Jukebox, Fecal Matter and Honey Dijon.
