Oscar 2012 Gifting Suites in Beverly Hills

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!"

Love the girlie bows and butterflies!

 This is the same style of Aruna Seth shoe that Pippa Middleton wore at the royal wedding!

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."
Phoebe Rose ran into pal, Joe Mantegna.
Roger Neal, Founder of the gifting suite says “This is more of a pampering than a gifting suite. Let’s face it; it’s a tough week. My suite is designed for VIPs to unwind, and at the same time ready themselves for Oscar activities.”  "Pampering is one of my favorite activities," says Phoebe Rose.

Celebrity Chef Kurt Ehrlich, who was the chef for Presidents Reagan and Ford, Roy Disney and many of Hollywood’s biggest stars, provided his 5 star rated cuisine. Chef Kurt’s Celebrity Gourmet Catering and his new restaurant The Hollywood Pasta Company in Burbank, CA has fast become one of the hottest spots for stars to dine in Los Angeles.

Visiting from GM Collin headquarters in Montreal, Karen Asquith, National Training Director, says, “Everyone is concerned about anti-aging. Our facials, which are plant based, diminish fine lines and wrinkles. The skin makes a complete transformation.”
