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. André 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

Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve—the multi-layered blended Scotch with honey tones and a woody, fruity flavour—hosted a party with Vanity Fair at the 71st Biennale di Venezia, the Venice Film Festival on Saturday.
   The function kicked off Rankin’s search for the next rising star, with guests including Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Blanca Suárez, Marie Nasemann, Paolo Stella, Eleonora Carisi, Manos Gavras, Lavinia Guglieman, Eliana Miglio, Sara Cavazza Facchini, and Bejna Bruijning.
   Guests enjoyed the function at the Westin Europa and Regina, where they saw an exclusive exhibition featuring Rankin’s photography. They also had shots taken in a luxury photo booth, which will begin its travels around Europe from September 2014 to February 2015. Rankin will judge the best from the shots during this period, where the winner will star in an online Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve campaign next year. Those who wish to participate can find out more at the Johnnie Walker website.
   In a release, Rankin said, ‘Over the years, I’ve been lucky to capture many celebrities on their rise to fame. Now, in collaboration with Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve, I’m looking for a new generation of rising stars, who embody the spirit and passion it takes to succeed, in whatever they put their mind to. Putting down the camera, I’ve designed a photo booth which is a new and different way of shooting for me. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do. Through special treatments and lighting, I will capture the celebratory moments of today’s rising stars—I am really looking forward to seeing the results.’

Summer heat and cool trends, at Doris Bergman’s Emmy Style Lounge at Fig & Olive

With no end to summer in sight, and Labor Day two weeks away, plucky, savvy Doris Bergman was back to work with a flourish, celebrating the coming fall season, with a colourful cast of characters via her Fifth Annual Style Lounge & Party in Celebration of Emmy Season at Fig & Olive in West Hollywood.
   Even in with the arrival of scorching summer heat, Bergman and her team stayed calm and cool directing traffic and making sure her top-tier talent and media were well taken care of as well as introduced to a favourite selection of fashion, accessories and beauty essentials from favourite vendors (Single Dress, Roadkill Boutique, Radar Watches, Telic Footwear, Traveler’s Choice Luggage, Guess Watches, Twisted Silver/Perch, Nature’s Flavors and Honest Tea) and new designers and entrepreneurs on the scene (Unity Vintage Jeans, Clothing Nation, Origami Owl Jewelry, Clothing Nation, Kaya Di Koko and Bling It Hat Designs).
   Wednesday’s Child was front and centre in the charity spotlight, and with local Los Angeles news presenter Christine Devine by her side, Doris was once again in “Auntie Mame” mode with a very targeted gift drive for the 15- to 18-year-olds in foster care. Two foster children got to not only get Doris’ patented VIP treatment but also represent the hundreds of local children benefiting from Wednesday’s Child.
   ‘In Los Angeles County, alone, there are over 30,000 children receiving child welfare services,’ says social worker William Wong in tribute to Bergman’s hard work and the support of the event sponsors. ‘Gift and monetary donations to the Wednesday’s Child Pre-Holiday Gift Drive has been overwhelming and, most importantly, the event sponsors and celebrity guests have provided examples to follow—giving the public permission to embrace our kids. I believe that people are inherently good and want to do good things.’
   Once guests who arrived early enjoyed a Mediterranean feast by Fig & Olive Executive Chef, Pascal Lorange, and got a Traveler’s Choice carry-on bag, they dove into a wave of beauty and style breakthroughs. The fantastic, just-launched MD Sun Skin Care treatment line (offering state-of-the-art treatment of wrinkles, age spots and lost elasticity) joined forces with Gerard Cosmetics and Whitening Lightning to allow guests to put their best faces forward.
   Fashion highlights included the latest covetable costume jewellery from Deborah at Twisted Silver (inviting pieces of copper, turquoise and buttons with a “steampunk” edge), Origami Owl Jewelry, devised by a teenaged girl as a way to save up for her first car), denim shorts from Unity Jeans Company with Roberto Cavalli-esque touches, Bling It Hat Designs’ jaunty cowboy toppers and some delicious candles and body care from Bon Bon Home & Garden, Jones & Rose, Dawn Lee Cosmetics and the Vida Emanuel Day Spa.
   Celebrities helping our beloved Doris celebrate the kick-off of Hollywood’s big social season included Emmy nominees Kate Burton (outstanding guest actress, Scandal), Jon Voight (supporting actor, Ray Donovan) Joey King and Joshua Close (Fargo), Khandi Alexander and Ntare Mwine (Treme), R. J. Mitte (Breaking Bad), Jamie Brewer (American Horror Story), Dot Marie Jones (Glee), Elaine Hendrix (Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll), Eva La Rue, Gregg Daniel (True Blood), Hal Sparks (Lab Rats), Kelsey Scott (12 Years a Slave), Marilu Henner (The Crazy Ones), Rosa Blasi (The Thundermans), Rowan Blanchard (Girl Meets World), Shanola Hampton (the US version of Shameless), Tiphany Adams (Push Girls) and Toks Olagundoye (The Neighbors).—Elyse Glickman, US West Coast Editor

Alarm für Cobra 11 films at the Nürburgring with Mercedes-Benz

Jack Yan/6.49

Pin It


Long-running German TV series, Alarm für Cobra 11: die Autobahnpolizei, which will return this autumn (most likely in early October), filmed at the Nürburgring over the weekend during the DTM races.
   Both star Erdoğan Atalay, who has played Semir Gerkhan since the show’s third episode in 1996, and new co-star Vinzenz Kiefer, in the role of Alex Brandt since 2014, found themselves at the historic circuit among the 80,000 spectators.
   They were joined by actress and presenter Fernanda Brandão, who will guest-star in the episode. Ralf Schumacher is also tipped to appear.
   They conducted a draw for fans of the show, giving away extras’ roles.
   Although the new season returns in the autumn on RTL, the Nürburgring episode, ‘Das letzte Rennen’ (‘The Last Race’) will not air till spring 2015. The plot line is predictable: Semir and Alex receive guest passes to a DTM race but unexpectedly find a corpse.
   The cop show features product placement from both BMW and Mercedes-Benz, and has done since one of its earliest stars, Mark Keller, drove a CLK in 1997.—Jack Yan, Publisher

Georgia May Jagger was guest of honour at Reserved’s German launch at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin. Jagger, who also serves as the new label’s face for autumn–winter 2014–15 and walked the catwalk on the night, was among numerous celebrities, including Franziska Knuppe, Daniel Brühl, Jasmin Gerat, Elyas M’Barek, Eva Padberg, Anna-Maria Mühe, Anna Julia Kapfelsperger and Anastasia Zampounidis. Reserved’s ‘Let’s Fashion’ party at Alte Münze Berlin was anything but reserved, with its 1,200 guests.
   DJs Beck To Beck, Terranova, Oskar Melzer, Adam Port and Rampa, and Niki Pauls performed, as well as indie band Oh Land.
   The launch, which showed the autumn–winter 2014–15 line, rather than the spring–summer 2015 one, marks the expansion of LPP SA’s brand into the German market. Reserved already has 500 stores in eastern and central Europe, and this month it will open its online store for German customers. Real-world shops will appear in the autumn at Recklinghausen, Stuttgart, Bremen and Hannover, with further stores planned in every main centre, as well as London and Paris, and in Croatia and Qatar.
   Polish-based LPP’s other brands are Cropp, Mohito, House and Sinsay. The company has revenues of over €1,000 million.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin’s spring–summer 2015 collections saw celebrity front rows at two of the first shows: Marc Cain and Laurèl.
   Marc Cain presented a collection at the Erika Hess Ice Stadium with a circus theme, and drew in an international crowd, including former WAG and model Sylvie Meis, Hilary Swank, Marcia Cross (who had made the journey especially for the Marc Cain show), Motsi Mabuse, Franziska Knuppe, and Nina Eichinger.
   His collection showed a return to pastel tones, with stripes, polka dots, flowers and animal prints.
   Marc Cain founder and chairman Helmut Schlotterer says that the label manages to reinvent itself every season and looks forward to strong sales.
   Laurèl, meanwhile, started its show with airline announcements for ‘Laurèl Airways flight LL 1978 to Berlin’ and ‘On behalf of the Laurèl crew, we wish you a very pleasant flight to our Bohemian Summer Islands. Thank you for choosing Laurèl Airways. Bon voyage!’
   The “dream destination” theme wasn’t a case of Caribbean brightness. Laurèl showed plant prints, frills and flowing pants as its take on a summer holiday: yellow, green and blue were the main colours here with only a few in fiery red and black. ‘Bohemian’ was accurate, but the spring–summer 2015 wearer could also be described as independent and confident.
   Guests included model Bar Refaeli and her brother Dor, tattooist Scott Campbell, Nikolai Kinski with Ina Paule Klink, Franziska Knuppe, Wolke Hegenbarth, Heino and Marie Jeanette Ferch, Barbara Becker and Noah Becker, Jana Pallaske, Vicky Krieps, Pegah Ferydoni, Dominic Raacke with Alexandra Rohleder, Fritzi Haberlandt, Jette Joop, Viktoria Lauterbach, Judith Milberg, Giovanni Zarella, Mirja DuMont, Minu Barati-Fischer, Mariella Ahrens with her daughter Isabella, Martin Krug and Julia Trainer, Jennifer Ulrich, Maria Ehrich, Aino Laberenz and director Bora Dagtekin.

Many Hopes, the charity dedicated to building homes and schools for children in Kenya—and creating sustainable local businesses to make themselves unnecessary in the long term—had its gala on Tuesday.
   Celebrities at the Discover Many Hopes NYC Annual Gala at Canoe Studios on West 26th Street included Jessica Stam, Jeremy Penn, AnnaLynne McCord, Krysta Rodriguez, Jon Batiste, DJ Zeke Thomas, and Alice Callahan Thompson and her husband W. Kyser Thompson.
   The celebrities are said to be big supporters of Many Hopes, and the amount raised exceeded the target, netting $400,877 for the charity.
   Actress Alice Callahan Thompson, who along with her husband chaired one of the auctions, noted, ‘We believe the problem of street children in coastal Kenya is also the solution. I have been involved with this unique organization that rescues and empowers children and teens in Mtwapa, Kenya since 2011.
   ‘My husband and I have travelled to Kenya twice to visit and serve our kiddos and look forward to returning this December. We have witnessed that no one cares more about fighting for justice than those who have suffered injustice. Our oldest girl Brendah is in her second term in law school in Nairobi, as she resolved seven years ago when Many Hopes fought for her rights, that she, too, would fight for the rights of others.’
   Batiste and Thomas provided the music for the evening. Penn had donated a painting of French actress Brigitte Bardot for the silent auction.

The Cartier Queen’s Cup Final was held on Sunday, marking the jeweller’s 30th year of sponsorship. Team Zacara beat Team Talandracas 10–7 in the match on June 15 on the Queen’s Ground at Guards Polo Club, Windsor Great Park.
   The Grenadier Guards performed before the match, parading in the shape of the figure 30 to mark the anniversary.
   HM Queen Elizabeth II and HM Queen Noor of Jordan were in attendance. HM Queen Elizabeth II presented the trophy to Zacara’s Lyndon Lea, the well known financier. Cartier executive chairman Arnaud M. Bamberger and managing director Laurent Feniou played host, and guests included the Marquess and Marchioness of Milford Haven, Sharlely Kerssenberg and Boris Becker, Stefanie Powers, Bianca Jagger, Michelle Dockery, Rupert Finch and Lady Natasha Finch, Kristin Davis, Jilly Cooper, OBE, Christopher Biggins, Astrid Muñoz, Frances O’Connor, Galen Weston and the Hon Hilary Weston, Eduardo Novillo Astrada, Lady Beresford and Caroline Beresford, best friends Greta Bellamacina, Amber Atherton and Poppy Jamie, Giorgio Veroni, Emily Tarrant, Garth Bearman, Urs Schwarzenbach, and Hugo Bamberger.
   At the reception, Cartier served its own brand of champagne with lunch by Mosimann’s, which consisted of Dorset crab and poached lobster, pickled cucumber, heritage tomato and radish salad, with a dill dressing for the starter. For the main, guests enjoyed fillet of Angus beef accompanied by warm summer vegetables and Jersey royals with herb vinaigrette and horseradish cream. Vanilla panna cotta with English strawberries and honeycomb alongside coffee and petits fours were served for dessert. John Carter supplied the floral arrangements, with red dahlia, red antirrhinum, deep pink peonies, artichokes, red rose plants and red gladioli.
   The two teams had begun the tournament in a field of 15, commencing May 20.
