Celebrities at the Media Night
The red carpet is traditionally rolled out for the horses at the renowned World Equestrian Festival, CHIO Aachen. However, on one evening the interest of the photographers shifts to the entrance of the Champions' Circle, when the guests from the media and sport, society, politics and business circles arrive for the CHIO Aachen Media Night.
It is THE gala evening at Germany’s largest sporting event. And it is also always the catwalk for many personalities in the public eye. For Lilly Becker it was the first public appearance since the separation from her husband, Boris Becker. She came to Aachen accompanied by the entrepreneur, Jens Hilbert, “It is a totally new world for me, very exciting and very nice.” The actress Uschi Glas, the Minister for Health Jens Spahn, the actor Heino Ferch and his wife Marie-Jeanette also visibly felt at home, as well North Rhine-Westphalia’s Prime Minister Armin Laschet and Elisabetta Canalis. The model was invited to the Soers by the co-host, Hermann Bühlbecker. All of the guests not only enjoyed the Media Night, but were also enchanted by the CHIO Aachen Opening Ceremony that was characterised by this year’s partner country, China. Afterwards, they celebrated in the Champions’ Circle until the early hours – and enjoyed exquisite catering prepared among others by the star chef, Harald Wohlfahrt.
