Carlina and Alejandro had a stylish, funky little ceremony under a giant (fake) bull's head at Toro in Boston's South End. After the ceremony, Margaret and Max of Unusually Fine Photography abducted the pair for a quick shoot in a small park nearby. Carlina couldn't be any cuter: that dress from BCBG is ridiculously adorable. And check out the confetti. Oh, and the food. Alejandro is, after all, a pastry chef in Singapore. . . .

Audi Fashion Festival

A marquee event under the Asia Fashion Exchange, the Audi Fashion Festival will bring a huge serving of the glitter, glamour and style that’s associated with the world’s top fashion labels to the Singapore runway. One of the city’s premiere fashion showcases, it’s a great opportunity to network with the fashion giants of the local and international fashion scene.

In addition to the crowd-favourite stunning fashion shows as part of Tent@Orchard, you can also expect red-carpet parties and gala events attended by supermodels, celebrities and industry insiders, as well as a host of exciting satellite activities.

Last year’s festival attracted some 7,000 guests and featured designers like Christian Lacroix, Gareth Pugh and Vivienne Westwood. At this year’s event, you can look forward to runway shows by Roberto Cavalli, Henry Holland and Sasha Bezovski, as well as a high-octane opening show by DSquared². And don’t miss the opportunity to catch renowned supermodels like Carmen Kass and the beautiful Song Kyungya in the flesh.

The Audi Fashion Festival Singapore, which runs for five days, has a range of high-profile events which are highly exclusive and by-invite only, but also has ticketed events which allow paying visitors access to catwalk shows, red carpet cocktail parties and even offers passes to the chic after-parties held at the glitziest clubs around bustling cosmopolitan Orchard Road.

Walk by the Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza and you can catch glimpses of all the action on the mammoth 16-foot-wide screen propped up in front of the tentage where outdoor catwalk shows are held. If you’re lucky, you might even catch sight of beautiful up and coming models and budding fashion luminaries hanging around the area in between shows.

Witness the buzz of a world-class fashion festival with exclusive collections by globally renowned designers in a national-scale event right here in Singapore.

Tokio Hotel rocks Audi Fashion Festival

Apparently, Tokio Hotel will be performing twice. They performed already to the people who already had tickets to the event. Security asked fans not to take pictures and the fans in Singapore were awesome and followed the rules! No pics for us, but fans behaving well is a GOOD thing for the band, eh?

Here is a news articles published online talking about the two performances and giving glowing reviews for the band!

German Pop band Tokio Hotel is set to rock Singapore as part of the Audi Fashion Festival Singapore 2010.

The band consists of twin brothers Bill (vocals) and Tom (guitar) Kaulitz, Georg Listing (bass) and Gustav Schafer (drums).

The German quartet is scheduled to perform at the Tent@Orchard tonight and tomorrow night (April 27-28).

In addition to the two live performances, iconic lead singer Bill will take to the catwalk for DSquared2 in the Festival’s opening show.

In January this year, Bill stole the show when he walked in the DSquared2 Menswear Autumn/Winter 2010 show in Milan, Italy.

Tokio Hotel has gone 10 times platinum with their albums sales, scored four No. 1 singles and sold out arenas and stadiums across Europe.

They also scored a Best New Artist VMA from MTV in 2008.

The band’s latest album, Humanoid was released on October 2009 in Singapore.

The singles taken from the Humanoid album, “Automatic” and “World Behind My Wall”, have received excellent airplay across various radio stations.

“World Behind My Wall” also peaked at No. 1 position on the radio.

The Audi Fashion Festival’s Official Charity Partner, The Celton Group, is co-sponsoring the cost of Tokio Hotel’s visit and also spearheading fundraising efforts around the public show on April 28.

TAG Heuer is also sponsoring a $25,000 watch for a silent auction from April 27 to May 2 to raise funds to benefit The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund.

“This is great news for Singapore and the Audi Fashion Festival,” says Head of Global Philanthropy at Celton and Chairman of the Audi Fashion Festival, Dr Frank Cintamani.

“To have one of Europe’s hottest bands come to Singapore before anywhere else in the region is a great privilege…I look forward to working with all the Audi Fashion Festival partners on leveraging their appearance at the Festival to raise as much money as possible for the Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund.”

The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund aims to alleviate the financial burden faced by parents in providing for their children’s education.

The funds also help children who are already facing difficulties in remaining in school to stay on.

2010 is a special year for pioneering Swiss-based watchmaker TAG Heuer.

“Tokio Hotel at the Audi Fashion Festival 2010 will kick off our 150 year anniversary celebrations in Singapore,” says TAG Heuer Brand Director, Alvin Soon.

“This year’s Festival theme, “Designing the Future”, fits well with our 150 years of pursuing technical innovation and precision, and bringing in Tokio Hotel provides an exciting and fitting start to our local celebrations.”

Tokio Hotel’s first performance will be an exclusive acoustic set at Audi’s Gala night tonight.

Tomorrow, a two acoustic performance will be staged after the DSquared2 opening show to an audience of 400 invited guests
