The Eco-Luxe Suite: a penthouse with a view

Elyse Glickman/14.31

Debbie Durkin’s Eco-Luxe Suite at the Beverly Hilton, Hollywood’s go-to property for all civilized award show shindigs, truly lived up to its name and purpose, offering up an engaging range of products and equally impressive inventors or coordinators. Also moving was the fact that the focus charity was Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles, whose programmes encompass community-based mentoring, school-based mentoring and vocational programmes for children and teens in need of positive role models. The organization also matches the right mentors to the right kids and teens down to a science with thorough application and interview procedures.
   Immediately after our arrival, we were greeted by Bill Schultz and his associate promoting his company, AlignMed. While the shirts they were distributing to guests looked like sleek, high-end fitness-wear, it’s what we didn’t see that makes this line special. They sporty way it is sewn actually helps the wearer self-correct posture and back issues. Another design in the collection helps spinal curvature at night while the wearer sleeps or works on the computer, when the spine is most vulnerable, according to Schultz.
   On the more formal end, we were quite impressed with the men’s ties and women’s couture dress selection displayed by Chicago-based Mark Roscoe. Every dress on the rack, perhaps not by accident, seemed to evoke different eras and different television shows up for nomination (e.g. silk brocades of the Mad Men era; the gauzy beaded bias cut flapper dresses of Downton Abbey; a special, sexy mermaid gown that would be as fabulous on a womanly form as it would be on Mitzi Gaynor or Jane Russell in their ’50s prime). Roscoe and his team welcome clients of all shapes and sizes, which is refreshing to hear, especially as not every designer can create something special for women with curves.
   Serengeti showed off its forthcoming collection as well as raising funds and awareness for a US veteran’s organization. The styles, in contrast to other collections, were timeless and clean, as well as wearably lightweight, yet substantial and flexible. The Isola and Sophia frames were our favourites, but you really could not go wrong with many of the wire, wire–plastic hybrid or plastic lenses crafted with photochromic technology.
   We love products that multitask, and Kellyann Novak, creator of Youth Eternal serum, immediately had us at “hello” and (her tagline), ‘You don’t have to lie about your age—your skin will do that for you.’ The Vegas-based entrepreneur (who can ship her product internationally), takes pride in the fact that her potion is made up of 24 essential oils that work equally well for daytime under-make-up primer moisturizing and night-time rejuvenation. She also mentions it can be used to take off make-up and remedy stretch marks and discolouration, and soothe redness. It smells like an herb garden with sage, lavender and rosemary. It’s a perfume, too! What it doesn’t have are preservatives or artificial emulsifiers.
   OC Hair and Makeup not only touches up celebrities and media at fabulous events like Durkin’s gatherings, but also makes house calls. While founder Stacy Mealin worked the celebrity crowd, Bridget Hight offered us some touch-ups and tips. She suggested bringing your highlighter or concealer up to the temples to make eyes more prominent and reduce the appearance of dark circles. If your concealer looks too light, pat on some slightly darker foundation powder for a customized look—but never use a concealer that’s the same skin tone. The company is also good with body make-up to conceal scars, and blemishes on arms and legs.
   Across the way, J. AndrĂ© introduced her line of hypoallergenic, Latex-free make-up applicator sponges and puffs packaged in sensual lotus-print boxes. She also demonstrated Natural Vibe, a vibrating applicator that stimulates collagen and elasticity during use as well as helping create a pore-free appearance.
   Guys in attendance truly appreciated the fact that Fresh Body’s Fresh Balls product was very self-explanatory and got right to the bottom of a man’s problem with pesky chafing, itching and sweating. Other Fresh Body products on the horizon include Fresh Pits for men as well as women’s personal hygene products for the “other down under”.
   Jiff the Dog, the teddy bear-like canine (who appeared at the Teen Choice Awards) and other celebrity dogs were also treated to fine luxury gear ranging from blankees and bedding from Baylee Nasco to customizable the Rein Coat pet harness for dogs of all sizes, to Canine Caviar and Feline Caviar Holistic pet food.—Elyse Glickman, US West Coast Editor, and Leyla Messian, Los Angeles Correspondent

New Zealand Fashion Week autumn–winter 2015, day one: Nom D to Stolen Girlfriends’ Club

Sopheak Seng/14.13

Pin It

New Zealand Fashion Week’s autumn–winter 2015 shows, now shifted to August, kicked off strongly with Nom D. Fashion editor Sopheak Seng was there, with Matthew Beveridge in amongst the photographers.

Nom D
   Vibe: Rock concert glam. Standing-only “seating” made it feel like you were more at the concert rather than a fashion show. Along with the seven balaclava-wearing drummers, this was a great opening to New Zealand Fashion Week. Black earplugs also added to the chicness of it all.
   Clothes: Nom D favourites and signatures that have been reinterpreted in new cuts and fabrications, kilts, gauzy knitwear, great printed Ts, sleeveless vests, coats and pinafores. Loved the bombers, and floor-length kilts, all wearable by so many different age ranges, as evidenced in the crowd that attended. Also loved the cut-out felt helmet-like hats from Marmalade Hats—samurai warrior anyone?
   Look: Poker-straight hair that looked like flat dreadlocks, wrapped and twisted into ponytails or worn flat against the hair, seemingly moving to the beat of the drumming. Painted black and white ears.

Shen
   Vibe: Grown-up glamour with urban concrete jungle sport-luxe thrown in.
   Clothes: Camo prints in olive and khaki jacquards featured in bombers and sheath dresses, diaphanous draped and tucked sheer dresses, and soft tailoring. An east-meets-west influence with lots of kimono and bell sleeve action on the runway, also evident in the gold paisley foil pieces. Collection needed editing and proper styling but not bad for a first outing.
   Looks: Chic chignons and fresh-faced beauties.

Lela Jacobs
   Vibe: Haunting beauty in a post apocalyptic world. Hanging light bulbs illuminated the runway while models walked in a trance-like state down the runway. Opening with black and then into whites and creams and an almost mocha colour.
   Clothes: draped diaphanous silks and voiles paired back with open weave knits, chunky and fine layered again with draped harem-like pant. Loved the androgynous feel of the collectionm with pieces all easily translating to both men’s and women’s looks, the lamb’s wool cape and printed silk pieces and the mini glove necklaces. Truly Lela Jacobs at her best.
   Looks: sooty eye make-up paired with centre-parted hair, braided into an almost Hasidic style.

Underground
   Vibe: Cool kids hanging in old silos with great fashion and music playing. Exhibition-style layout with each silo showcasing a different designer.
   Clothes: Standouts were Meadowlark (beautiful jewellery, septum nose rings and signet rings and bracelets piled high on the arms); Jojo Ross (a beautiful white dress with a water feature inside that constantly changes—clever girl); Jimmy D (slogan-heavy ’90s collection which had catchphrases from Russian bride advertisements).

Salasai
   Vibe: Polished eccentric arty folks and the work of Jean-Michel Basquiat.
   Clothes: Great bombers, pinafores, dungarees, double-layer fit and flare dresses and great shirts. A muted colour palette of chocolate and deep burgundy kept the collection clean and sophisticated. The abstract prints will be sell-outs, also no menswear, made this a very strong collection for Kirsha Whitcher.
   Look: clean chignons and a flush of yellow eye shadow.

Stolen Girlfriends’ Club
   Vibe: Glam rock meets bogan motorheads at a party. The longest runway and stadium lighting from the Western Springs Speedway showed the garments in their best of the day.
   Clothes: A bit ’70s and a bit ’90s. Mustards, duck-egg blues, black and greys. Mixed in with some metallics and glitter. Hell for leather with nearly every second look featuring leather splicing, or a leather jacket. Not sure about the knitted bell-bottom trousers but loved the mustard turtlenecks on the guys, as well as the finalĂ© looks of the glitter skater skirts and pants.
   Look: Grungy cool wet-look hair, slicked back off the face, and great sunglasses to combat the glare of the lighting.—Sopheak Seng, Fashion and Beauty Editor

GBK’s garden party: primping for the 2014 Emmy Awards

On two hot, sunny afternoons at Beverly Hills’ L’Ermitage Hotel, Gavin Keilly and his intrepid team were blending pre-Emmy Awards’ primping and wellness, exotic post-awards escapes and down-to-earth charity fundraising, transforming a small ballroom and courtyard into a colourful canvas of food for thought.
   In the spotlight were the GO Campaign, a grant-making organization addressing problems faced by orphans and vulnerable children around the world by partnering with local celebrities and role models to deliver local solutions; Cops 4 Causes, the first non-profit organization to be created to collectively highlight the philanthropic efforts of law enforcement; the Environmental Media Association, a non-profit dedicated to harnessing the power of the entertainment industry and the media to educate the global public on environmental issues and motivate sustainable lifestyles; Mutt Match LA K-9 Rescue Ranch & Sanctuary, which rescues neglected and discarded dogs from LA’s high kill shelters to rehabilitate and place in loving homes; and StarPower, providing fans backstage access and one-on-one engagement straight from their favorite celebrities via social media while supporting the causes they care about.
   In terms of featured wellness products, the star of the show was featured sponsor Michael Todd True Organics, which introduced their new Soniclear Antimicrobal Cleansing System, the world’s first antimicrobial sonic skin cleansing system. What sets this product and its skin care line apart from the competitors is the care put into the rotary and sonic systems, according to company president Lewis Hendler. He added that the dermatological team at Michael Todd set out to create an effective cleaning system without the worry of bacteria that can affect the performance of the tool and the products. After extensive research, the result was a revolutionary sonic cleansing brush that thoroughly cleanses the skin and then protects itself against microbial contamination leaving the brushes cleaner, fresher for longer.
   The strong supporting cast in the wellness act of the show included the Kind soap company, serving up bath and body care products in gorgeous earthy packaging; Brow Art 23, offering press an overview of their product line and make-up touch-ups; and Skinny & Co. Coconut Oil Company, providing their skinny coconut oil, 100 per cent raw and hand-pressed, and poised to be the next great super-food.
   There were also stylish and affordable sunglass frames from Foster Grant, LG’s Tone Infinim bluetooth headset, developed in collaboration with Harman/Kardon to deliver amazing sound quality and comfort in a range of pretty metallic pastels and an Intuition Blueprint Reading from Joanna Garzilli as well as a copy of her second edition of Unleash the Psychic in You.
   As most GBK parties would not be complete without a goody bag of surprises, the Artisan Group was on hand with their welcome surprise packages full of original costume and semi-precious jewellery, photography, stationery, soaps and other eye-catching and crafty accessories. Certainly, the stylists from top nominee shows and ratings hits such as The Voice, Scandal, Parenthood and The Vampire Diaries think so! My bag was particularly delightful this go round with beautiful jewellery from Benee Rubin, Rock and Hardware, Designs by Diane (Sowers), ImagiNature Art Glass, Nineteen Seventy-Four by Pamela Roskin, BkdSignature, Jewelry by Lucinda de Castro, Nan Gates Designs cosmetic bags, Specifically Random head wraps. Charities the Artisan Group supports includes the Animal Rescue Fund and Let’s Move Together–the Arthritis Foundation.
   Celebrities snapped at the event included Alicia Witt, Angela Bassett, R. J. Mitte, Sam Trammell, Selenis Leyva, Kristin Bauer van Straten, Viola Davis, Edie Falco, Vanessa Marcil, Madeline Brewer, Corbin Bleu, Dascha Polanco, Gary Cole, Joey King, Mariel Hemingway, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Bob Eubanks, Teyonah Parris, and Shanola Hampton.—Elyse Glickman, US West Coast Editor

Red Carpet Events LA

Red Carpet Events LA teamed up with the PETA2 organization to use the 2014 Teen Choice Awards as a platform for positive messages: starting the school year right and embracing a cause teens and young adults can, literally, make their own. Glitz and glamour met with common sense in mid-August in the SLS Beverly Hills’ now fabled ballroom.
   PETA2, the little sister of cause cĂ©lĂšbre organization PETA, was born in 2002, when PETA realized there were young people as eager to support animal rights and take on a vegetarian lifestyle as their adult counterparts. PETA2’s birthplace was the 2002 Warped tour, featuring the likes of Fall Out Boy and Rise Against. Young concert attendees took on the now iconic ‘I Am Not A Nugget’ slogan (complete with cute chick graphic) as their first battle cry, and committed to steering clear of fast food giants and designers using materials sourced from non-ethical means.
   Humanely made grooming products offered to the young trend-setters in attendance (snapped here are Brendan Robinson, Hunter King and Joey King, Mia Talerico, Paris Berelc, Samantha Logan, Simonna, Lexi Noel and Kathryn Newton) included Rock Your Hair by Michael O’Rourke hair products (love the tastefully bejewelled bottles), Joy and Mario Footwear (beautiful and sturdy espadrilles crafted with colourful fabrics and styles that caused a near riot among the attendees); Worx Toys, bronzers and brushes from celebrity favourite Ofra cosmetics, the space-saving Hot Iron Holster, closet space-saving glam from the Diva Box, Artwear Designs Ts and tanks, and adjustable Hipsy Headbands for Women. Some celebrities snapped up breezy late summer fashion from Nredom Snoitome.
   Dermalogica (the Clear Start Line) and Tikkun Spa were on hand to provide young attendees with perfect skin care solutions for acne and complexion issues, while internal nourishment was offered via Zico coconut water and SoyJoy bars.—Elyse Glickman, US West Coast Editor

Rihanna is on the September 2014 cover of W, photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, styled by Edward Enniful, the magazine’s fashion and style director.
   There’s a New Zealand connection, with the pop star wearing Meadowlark Jewellery’s large Thorn Septum ring, from its upcoming spring–summer 2014–15 collection, Dynasty, on the cover. The singer wears the ring on her nose on the cover.
   Two versions of the ring, one with diamonds and one without, feature in the editorial inside.
   Meadowlark says it gifted Rihanna the diamond-set septum ring on the day of the shoot, and she had been spotted wearing it.
   She also wears a Donna Karan New York dress, an Ashley Lloyd headdress, Amrapali ruby and diamond ear cuffs, and a Stephen Dweck sterling silver necklace. The shoot took place in July.
   Rihanna is currently on her Monster’s Ball tour with rapper Eminem.

Photographs of actress Riley Keough modelling for de Grisogono at the Grand Hyatt HĂŽtel Martinez, where she was based during the Festival de Cannes in May 2014, have been released.
   Using one of the suites, Keough modelled wearing various de Grisogono jewellery items, including the latest Allegra line (in Lucire issue 33), as well as designs from the Gocce and Gypsy collections.
   Paris-based Italian photographer Emanuele Scorcelletti, well known for his portraits and his work with luxury brands, photographed Keough.
   The Allegra collection is ‘Dedicated to a new generation of women, who dare to express their radiance, and explore different shapes and jewelled expressions of their individuality,’ says de Grisogono.
   Keough, who is the granddaughter of Elvis Presley and Priscilla Presley, began her modelling career in her teens, and first appeared on an international runway for Dolce & Gabbana.
   Her acting dĂ©but was in The Runaways (2010), and she soon landed the female lead in The Good Doctor (2011) opposite Orlando Bloom. She has recently completed filming on Mad Max: Fury Road, alongside Charlize Theron, Tom Hardy, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

For Every Minute débuts mid-winter merino line; Queenstown prepares for Clicquot in the Snow

For Every Minute held its mid-winter VIP evening at Coco Wellington last night, with co-founder Kenzy Cheeseman holding court, and an even more lavish spread of macarons, guimauves and madeleines from French Cancan, teas from Harney & Sons, wine from Nautilus and water from Waiwera put on for guests. Ruth Armishaw performed live jazz numbers, and neighbouring Woodstock florist provided the flowers, giving the event a classier ambiance.
   As with For Every Minute’s previous event, models, and Cheeseman and Armishaw, were dressed in the company’s silk, loungewear, pyjamas and sleepwear, but there were more giveaways, including beauty treatment vouchers and silk eye masks.
   Cheeseman used the event to dĂ©but For Every Minute’s mid-winter merino line, which to our eyes looked even more comfortable than the silk designs.
   In other antipodean news, Best Western has announced that Harley–Davidson riders will have more travel perks across its 67 participating Australia and New Zealand properties.
   HOG members who sign up to Best Western Rewards will be automatically upgraded to Platinum status, with 10 per cent bonus points on each stay, a welcome gift on arrival, complimentary room upgrades, early check-in and late

   Best Western International and Harley–Davidson extended their global partnership for three years in 2013.
   Finally, Veuve Clicquot will hold its Clicquot in the Snow celebration from July 30 to August 3 in Queenstown, New Zealand.
   The event, which has been held in Tignes and Aspen, sees Queenstown host everything from the Clicquot brunches at Pier 19, Steamers’ Wharf, from July 30 to 31, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. (NZ$35), with a special session with guest DJ Vincent Hanna on August 1, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.; the Clicquot Snow Bar at the Coronet Peak main deck (10 a.m.–4 p.m.), where guests can get a bespoke menu matched with a flute of Veuve Clicquot and a complimentary pair of Clicquot touch-screen gloves; the Clicquot dĂ©gustation dinner on August 1 at the Wakatipu Grill at the Hilton (NZ$150; call 64 3 450-9400 to book); an evening with Kathryn Wilson and Veuve Clicquot, where the designer will showcase her spring–summer 2014–15 shoe collection at the Heliworks Hangar on August 2 (NZ$50, see www.kathrynwilson.com for tickets); the after-party at the Bunker on July 31 from 9 p.m.; and the late-night sessions at Barmuda from on August 1 from 9 p.m.

Above Ellen DeGeneres’s Twitter photo with Bradley Cooper in the foreground, which has been re-Tweeted over 3 million times.

Award-winning TV host Ellen DeGeneres will lend her name to a home ware, ready-to-wear fashion, accessories and pet care items range called E. D., to début as a capsule collection for the holidays this year, with a full collection launch in spring 2015.
   She is working with J. Christopher Burch, founder of C. Wonder and CEO of Burch Creative Capital.
   DeGeneres will provide creative direction while Burch provides brand development and manufacturing expertise. E. D. also has Michael Francis, chief global brand officer, Dreamworks Animation and former global CMO of Target; Marisa Gardini, managing partner of E. D. and former president and CEO of Isaac Mizrahi; and Janet Grove, former corporate vice-chairman of Macy’s Inc. and chairman and CEO of Macy’s Merchandising Group.
   DeGeneres said in a release, ‘I’m so excited to work with Chris and our incredibly talented team on this new venture. I’ve always wanted to launch a line of home goods, clothing and accessories. I already get to be inside people’s living rooms with my show. Now I get to be in their kitchens, in their beds, and in their pants. Wait. That’s not what I meant.’
   Ellen DeGeneres’s show is entering its 12th season and has won 51 Daytime Emmys. Her social media following comprises over 29 million Twitter followers and 15 million Facebook fans. Her Twitter selfie from the Academy Awards was the most re-Tweeted image in history (with three million re-Tweets). She has also received a Peabody Award and an Emmy Award, while her three books have all dĂ©buted at number one on The New York Times’ Best Seller List.
