Hamasaki Ayumi and Sawajiri Erika hang out together at Leslie Kee’s exhibition!
On the 27th, a photo exhibition was held for the Great Tohoku Earthquake charity photobook “LOVE&HOPE”, which will be released on June 1st. The event was held at Omotesando Hills’ “Space Oh”. Hamasaki Ayumi (32), who graces the front cover of the photobook, and Sawajiri Erika (25) were among many in attendance.
The exhibition featured photographs from Singaporean photographer Leslie Kee (40), who took the portraits of beautiful women from 32 countries around the world. Hamasaki walked the venue with Kee and listened attentively as he explained some 200 pictures which feature women such as Lady Gaga (25) and Beyonce (29). Hamasaki met with Sawajiri before leaving and the two smiled and shook hands as Sawajiri nervously introduced herself with “I’m Erika”.
Later, Hamasaki posted a picture of herself, Lesie and Sawajiri on Twitter. She wrote, “Alright! It’s raining in Osaka! This is my real ability (as a rain girl). Going to the 1st day at Jo-hall!!! But before that, please let this cute picture of Erika-chan make you feel better ☆”. (TL Note: Hamasaki is known as a “rain girl”, which is someone whose presence seems to bring rain)
