Private Style Statement Session, Fiji Water, FreshLook Eye Exam & Year Supply of Color Contact Lenses, LeSportsac XL, Lifeway Foods, Red Bull, Sofitel LA, TimeMug, and WIneLibraryTV.com.
Most of these brands you have heard about– but maybe NOT heard about WineLibraryTV.com. Check out the blog to follow this which will have a podcast with WineLibraryTV.com! We are splitting that off because it’s a longer podcast and this is a long enough post. If you know nothing about wine, or if you know a lot about wine– you can learn something from WineLibraryTV.com. It’s a fascinating website for vinophiles!
Check out who was there at the bottom but look at WHAT was there first because SWAG was the word at this year’s Golden Globe suites:
Solstice Sunglasses had a selection of glasses for stars to be "cool" in.
Hanes presented a unique tropical retreat with intimate apparel from Bali, Wonderbra, Donna Karan and more had celebs coveting lots of great styles. Joely Fisher (“‘Til Death”) and mom Connie Stevens shopped together. Angela Kinsey (“The Office”) said “you just saved me a trip to the mall, I will wear this strapless Wonderbra to the Golden Globes" (how’s that for the best in time-savers!) New mom Chandra Wilson selected the Donna Karan Body perfect Slimmer because “slimmers" are always good, I need these now!”. “American Idol” runner-up Katherine McPhee selected several pairs of Wonderbra panties, because her BF commented that she "can never have enough lacey panties"> Jennifer Hudson picked out Donna Karan slimmers because for Red Carpet gowns, “You gotta love the slimmers for the Red Carpet” .
CVS was a major presence featuring a selection of hair care, makeup, skin and body care for both men and women. This "Reinventing Beauty Spa" was a great place to get a quick touch-up or even a hair cut courtesy ofthe world-famous Christophe who has launched a line with CVS/Pharmacy. Also the skincare & cosmetic line that CVS was featuring was Nordic cosmetic brand Lumene .
HANES was handing out goody bags filled with tees and gift certificates for online shopping! What a treat to order your fave Hanes essentials online and have them delivered to your home! Kevin Dillon(“Entourage”) left with some "perfect tees" and said “I’m running low on my Hanes — need more now!". Kate Flannery (“The Office”) is using her gift certificate to shop online with her boyfriend. Hayden Panetierre (“Heroes”) is a dad’s girl (if not a hero), “I love that I can get stuff for myself and my Dad”
AMC THEATRES® offered out passes to theaters. Rusty Joiner (Resident Evil 3) was excited to get to see his fave flicks at his local AMC. Amber Heard (“Alpha Dog”) can’t wait to see her performance with Justin Timberlake in Alpha Dog. Eric King & Lauren Velez (“Dexter”) are going to catch an upcoming show of “Babel”. Jonathan Silverman felt it was the best gift in the lounge as did Kevin Dillon who was going to tell his castmates to the Lounge to pick up the gift that keeps on giving!
LAVANILA LABORATORIES Who knew that “American Idol” stars came in flavors? Katherine McPhee declared “I’m a Vanilla girl…pure vanilla is my scent!”. Donal Logue (“Nights of Prosperity”) and his two sons helped choose the vanilla blossom scent for Mom! Becki Newman (“Ugly Betty”) opened her new scent and spritzed on the spot. Vanessa Williams (“Ugly Betty”) chose vanilla grapefruit scent because she like her fragrance with “a little bite.” Jai Rodriguez (“Queer Eye”) picked out some fragrance for his best friend, (Grey’s Anatomy) star Sara Ramirez. Check out the podcast on Lavanila Laboratories three different scents. ! YUMMY–and sold exclusively at Sephora right now.
SOLSTICE SUNGLASS BOUTIQUE Vanessa Williams came in so-so sunglasses and left with her "son-approved" Marc Jacobs frames. Erik King (Dexter) chose Hugo Boss and Armani Exchange frames because he plans to wear them on the show (after working it out with the stylist). Terrence Howard added Dior Homme aviators to his smooth vibe. The Queen of hip-hop– Mary J. Blige– scooped up six pairs of the hottest new sunglasses from Bottega Vennetta, YSL, Kate Spade and Marc Jacobs!
BREAD DENIM Brittany Snow and Tina Fey picked out some dark denim skinny, zipper at the ankle jeans and wore them immediately. Jennifer Hudson ordered a custom-made to fit her star magnitude. Bread Denim will also be sending a special pair for Mr. Payton, Hudson’s Pomeranian puppy who shopped the Lounge with her. Mary J. Blige got a pair in each color and wash. Kevin Dillon put them on immediately and said that he will wear them on “Entourage”. Dominique Swain (“Alpha Dog”) fell in love with them after putting them on and did a supermodel strut in the lounge. (yeow!).
CARLOS FALCHI Vanessa Williams and Chandra Wilson both agreed that they would carry these "one of a kind" custom clutch bags designed specifically for the Golden Globes. Vanessa chose pink and Chandra went for the large clutch with purple stones. Kevin Dillon picked up a lizard version for his wife. Perry Reeves (“Entourage”) felt that her character should be accessorizing with Carlos Falchi and said she would talk to the show’s stylist! While this isn’t the same clutch that was featured for the Golden Globes, it’s quite similar to it but it was more gilded and had more exquisite details.
BABYDISH Ali Landry loved her BabyDish bag filled with everything mom needs for baby and looks forward to using it when she has a baby. ( hmmm could that be a hint?) Nancy O’Dell has got baby on the brain! She picked out a bag that she plans to use for all of her baby things because she’s due later this year!
