The elegant and pet friendly, Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills was the setting for the Maidenform Capsule Collection Oscar suite. The collection was designed in collaboration with Mad Men designer, Janie Bryant and the retro inspired intimate apparel and shapewear incorporating Italian stretch silk satin, was previewed to Oscar nominees, celebrities and stylists.
As a large and lovely pug, I am quite pleased with my shape-but I understand that most female humans are not as accepting of their body contours.
Well, no worries, since the Maidenform shapewear was a fantastic experience for all the ladies, who were "fitted" and given numerous tiny undergarments to wiggle into. Mom says now she knows the secret of the svelte Red Carpet stars-its all about "shapewear"!
It became quite a "girls club" atmosphere, enhanced by retro TV and film clips and dark chocolate. So now you can look model thin (although I prefer being a plus size model) and have your chocolate too!

Next stop was the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills at the Aruna Seth Shoe Gifting Suite. Stylists for Jessica Alba and Katherine Heigle stopped in and snapped up some glitzy, sexy stilettos featuring Swarovsky encrusted butterfly embellishments.
The London based shoe company (a favorite of the Royal family) originally focused on bridal footwear and retails in the $1000 range.
Designer Aruna Seth said "We'd love to see more A-list celebrities wearing Aruna Seth at the Oscars this year!"

The Roger Neal Beauty and Glamor Academy Award suites were held at L’ Ermitage Hotel in Beverly Hills (also pet friendly). Stars were pampered with beauty treatments including, facials, massages, instant eye lifts, eye brow & lip waxing, manicures and pedicures as they prepared for "the biggest night in the entertainment world."
