Digital Divas 2015

According to Urban Dictionary a diva is:
1. female version of a hustler.
2. a bitchy woman that must have her way exactly, or no way at all. often rude and belittles people, believes that everyone is beneath her and thinks that she is so much more loved than what she really is. selfish, spoiled, and overly dramatic.

If you scroll a bit more on the page you will get to a more researched definition of the word:
adj. pronounced (DEE-VAH)- 1.to describe a person who exudes great style and personality with confidence and expresses their own style and not letting others influence who they are or want to be. 2. A person whose character makes them stands out from the rest. 3. Noun; a person’s title in a group of friends or in society that is popular or famous and who many people try to copy. 4. A person who tries to achieve what they want and who do not let people get in their way, and doing so with style and class.

From Wikipedia we find that A diva (/ˈdvə/; Italian: [ˈdiːva]) is a celebrated female singer; a woman of outstanding talent in the world of opera, and by extension in theatre, cinema and popular music. The meaning of diva is closely related to that of prima donna.

Apparently, nowadays, the word has a more pejorative meaning, leading people away from the idea of a strong woman.

Digital Divas is an event created to celebrate powerful women that activate online in different domains.
As Gabriela Lungu (Creative Communications Expert) stated during her speech, a cool modern diva is a powerful woman that sustains her opinions, is competent, professional and very good in her field of activity.
On 27th May, Bragadiru Palace was the host for many beautiful Digital Divas interested in finding new ways of improving their work and lifestyle, for a conference with many interesting topics and an Awards Gala for the most active women on the internet.

The Gala is an unique event celebrating some of the best fashion and beauty blogs, and also acknowledging the accomplishments of the most active women on the Internet. In an exclusive setting, the gala will bring together important names in the local fashion and beauty industry in a special evening of networking and glamour. (via official website)

I hope that in the next year many other Divas will rise and do great things.
