Blu Inc Media celebrates International Women's Day 2019 with femme POWER anthem!

The March for Women continued this past Friday the 8th at the Crystal fountain of Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, with Blu Inc Media's many sister titles gearing up to celebrate International Women's Day 2018. The theme of the evening? Tahan Lasak, poised to show just this: Yes, women can! 

And women (and men!) did!

Guests arrive at the event, just in time to take the perfect 'shoefie' alongside empowering quotes by powerful women in history, and those of today.

 

Some of our favourite quotes from the event. These stickers will remain in Pavilion until 15th March, so take your very own shoefie and shout it out on Instagram. Don't forget to hashtag us at #bluinciwd2019 #lorealparismy #tahanlasak #pavilionkl !

From celebrity friends to members of the public, the event saw an ever-burgeoning crowd gathered in solidarity, ready to hear for the very first time the launch of Blu Inc's femme theme of the evening: Istimewa, performed by superstar extraordinaire Dayang Nurfaizah.

Preceded by a speech from Project Director and Editor in Chief of Shape and Cleo Seema Viswanathan, and a reading from Harper's Bazaar Editor in Chief Natasha Kraal, the performance played to thunderous applause. A hit, and an instant earworm that is certain to reverberate with every woman who has ever doubted herself: You are special, and you can do it.

Guests then adjourned to Acme Bar and Coffee to continue with the festivities, with some 200 lucky guests ascending to Golden Screen Cinemas for a special showing of Captain Marvel. And let's just say - What better way to celebrate the strength of a woman than with a superhero movie? Also on-site were L'Oreal Paris Malaysia, ready with their 24H Fresh Wear Foundation: a waterproof, transfer-proof, and breathable make-up solution to bring out the best in every woman.
