New Meaning to Being Queen For A Day
Those lovely goodies that land at your door when you are rich and famous, read about Oscar Perks… New Meaning To Being Queen For A Day…. it’s all about the craft, right???
The gift of getting gorgeous just gets bigger. The Oscars are the mama of all marketing bonanzas. The day of Cher’s individuality and zaniness are gone.
Now for a week before the Academy Awards, the most luxurious hotels in LaLaLand have been transformed into a flea market par excellence to show, tell, borrow, beg, and have anything that can be strutted on the red carpet.
Stylists, sycophants, and an occasional star scurry about to work the biggest deals for a celeb to don. Here are goodies that await in the Governor’s Suite at the Beverly Hills L’Ermitage hotel:
A blinding collection of mega-jewelry on view from Van Cleef & Arpels. Oooh, the show-stopping, pear-shaped ring set in platinum is already promised to comedian/outfit dissector Joan Rivers– the better to hold on to a microphone with!
Designer Diane Von Furstenburg is on hand to help select one of her sexy frocks– many are already spoken for. Adrienne Landau‘s glamorous accessories including wraps, collars, cuffs, and chiffon stoles are great conversation pieces for impromptu interviews.
Nit-picky details like brow waxing, light acupuncture, and hot towel shaves for men are a zap away at the Fred Segal Essentials beauty treatment arena. Helena Rubinstein takes the worry out of touch-ups. Keep the spa-plush Red Envelope terry robe or a rose-scented votive candle wrapped in a dupione silk tote lined with velvet.
Revel in the sweet smell of success thanks to Gary Farn Fragrance– Vivienne Westwood‘s Libertine, Jil Sander,Herve Leger, and Lolita Lempicka (who are also sending some dresses) are there for your sniffing pleasure.
To hold your hankie just in case you whimper with joy, there are Lambertson-Truex crocodile custom bags– some are rumored to have diamond clasps-and matching shoes, of course! Or, consider classic handbags of exotic skins from Suarez.
Feeling lucky? There’s the STYLE.com Oscar insider sweepstakes.
Remember, these are goodies assembled in just one room– there is more! The envelope, please…
