The day began for the ladies at their hotel – the St. Martins Hotel where they prepared to get picked up by a car from the Film Festival, and took selfies.
Next up was the red carpet. The ladies were met on the red carpet by the Talking Drummers. After dancing, they rook photos by the wall and headed in for a brief press screening. Then it was time for the screening!
