Today, the red carpet is associated with VIPs, dignitaries, the heads of state, celebrities, film festivals. It conjures up images of flashing of camera lights and paparazzi, glitzy gowns and make-up, elaborate suits and attire, important dignitaries landing in large airplanes and waving to crowds. This is a very modern conception of what the red carpet has come to symbolize. What is lesser known is that the red carpet’s first mention in popular culture actually goes back to ancient Greece, over 2,000 years ago.
