Photographer's Note

"...I'm not here, I'm really walking the red carpet
dressed in couture, on the arm of my fabulous date. Throngs of people call my name as I glide effortlessly past the flashing lights of paparazzi that capture my every glance, every nuance. Turn, smile and wave at the crowd, I am sparkling, glamorous, invincible. The night is mine..."


...The red carpet originated with the railroad. Conductors commonly rolled out the red carpet to direct passengers to the correct location on the train. Today it is known as a legacy of the entertainment industry. It is identified with the culture of the celebrities and the ora that surrounds them. The red carpet has a history of all of those who have been a part of the entertainment industry. It is a great way to honor those who have passed on from the red carpet to the afterlife. The red carpet is associated with the Oscars more than any other event. Millions of viewers tune in to watch the people walk the red carpet in their gorgeous outfits. The idea of the red carpet to make individuals feel important has caught on to many areas beside the Oscars. They are used for music award shows and movie premiers. They are also used for some balls and proms at local schools to give the attendees the feeling that they are royalty. The red carpet holds a magical feel with it that makes people feel like they are part of the celebrity world...
