LIVING life in the fast lane seems to suit a Bricket Wood woman who has been crowned Miss Cannes Film Festival at the recent Monaco Grand Prix.

Twenty-one-year-old Dannie Aston, of Mount Pleasant Lane, visited Cannes and Monaco where she was a grid girl at its Formula 1 race on May 26.

The all-expenses paid trip was Dannie’s prize after being selected as a Miss Motors finalist at a national beauty pageant in March.

Dannie joined nine other girls, all of whom were flown to France for a 10-day visit. She was “treated like a celebrity,” filmed for Fashion TV and invited to all the best parties on luxury yachts.

She also featured on stage at the La Rascasse bar, located on a bend of the F1 Grand Prix street race.

The singer/songwriter was crowned Miss Cannes Film Festival during a star-studded glittering ceremony aboard a yacht owned by royalty.

The title means she will spend the year hosting events for Fashion TV and a pageant management company both within the UK and overseas.
