As one of the most prestigious film events that can be found anywhere in the globe, it was undeniably one of the invitations that was coveted the most in Hollywood as well as the film business in other countries. And the 2018 edition of the Cannes Film Festival was without a doubt something that should have been brought to people’s attention, particularly because we had our very own Anita Fabiola there.
The Cannes Film Festival is a film festival that takes place annually in Cannes, France. It is a festival that showcases new films of a variety of genres, including documentaries, from all over the world. The festival, which began in 1946 and is currently hosted solely by invitation in the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès, is held yearly (typically in May).
The media star, who juggles between her TV presenting, red carpet hosting, acting, and her podcast, was able to acquire an invitation for herself to the event for A-list celebrities. She tweeted photographs of herself at the event, wearing a variety of breathtaking costumes designed by Ugandan Haute Couturier Anita Beryl. Anita Beryl is a fashion designer.
Because Fabiola is the first Ugandan to attend the festival as a result of her attendance, Anita Beryl’s products are the first to make a presence at the festival for a Ugandan designer.

Fabiola’s participation in the beauty pageants held by her high school earned her several titles, including that of Miss London College and Miss St. Lawrence schools and colleges, while she was still a student there.
Because of this, she decided to compete in the countrywide Miss High School Kadanke pageant in 2012, which she ended up winning. As a result, she became the very first “Miss Kadanke.”
Fabiola competed in the Miss Uganda beauty pageant in 2013, where she was awarded the title of Miss Uganda West and placed first runner-up in the overall Miss Uganda beauty pageant that same year.

The show was voted the most popular entertainment program on Ugandan television in 2014, and it was broadcast on television there.
Due to the popularity of the show, Fabiola was recognized with several nominations and ultimately took home the award for Best Female TV Personality at the Buzz Teeniez Awards in 2015.
Fabiola started the Fab Girls Foundation with the intention of empowering young women by delivering services such as basic education, sanitation, and making people aware of HIV/AIDS, amongst other things. She kicked in 2019 by kicking up a drive to collect money for her nonprofit organization by selling calendars that she had created herself and had customized.
