My Red Carpet Encounter with Huffington Post Founder- Arianna Huffington!

Arianna Huffington
When I got confirmation that I had a slot on the red carpet for the Time 100 Gala last week, I was immediately ecstatic! In case you don't know, The Time 100 is an annual list of the 100 most influential people in the last year compiled by Time Magazine. As excited as I was about talking to Hollywood hot shots, the one person I was beyond thrilled to talk to was Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington. This woman is the true meaning of beauty and brains.

As soon I saw Arianna coming down the red carpet, I called out her name and she immediately came over. She was so warm and engaging and I love that she looked me in the eyes while she was talking to me. She seemed so genuine. Check out our minute long chat on the red carpet as we discuss what’s new with Arianna!

Makho Ndlovu: You look stunning tonight, what are you wearing?
Arianna Huffington: I’m wearing Nanette Lepore

Makho Ndlovu: The dress looks beautiful on you!
Arianna Huffington: Thank you for that!

Makho Ndlovu: Congrats on your online streaming network, can you tell us a little more about that?
Arianna Huffington: Oh Yes! We are really excited, it’s launching in June. It’s going to be ultimately 24/7, but we are starting with 12 hours. It will be very much based on everything that’s on the Huffington Post our stories, our reporters and lot of community engagement.

Makho Ndlovu: Sounds exciting! Is there anyone in particular that you are looking forward to seeing at the Time 100 Gala?
Arianna Huffington: I’m really looking forward to seeing Tim Cook, who is the new head of Apple as well as seeing the CEO of Change.Org

Just as I was about to ask my next question, the event publicist came to whisk her away. We could have spend hours chatting, she was that personable. By the way, did you know that the Huffington Post just won a Pulitzer Prize? Yep true story. Arianna is such an inspiration!

Thoughts? What do you think of her red carpet look?
