Picket line vs. glitz & glamour
Sigh. The Golden Globes just aren't any fun this way. More power to the Hollywood scribes and all, but their strike has gone and siphoned the glitz out of a perfectly good Hollywood institution. Yeah, there will be winners, losers and kudos for 'the arts', but the rest of us are being starved of the first frock show of awards season. Come tomorrow, goss mags should be snarking about celebrity stylists gone cross-eyed and we should be ogling the Bh Glamour Gallery, voting for the best red carpet beauty looks.
Lucky the celebrity swag has at least been salvaged…
Phew. I mean, good gracious, in what type of twisted universe would a starlet be expected to pay for her own luxury lifestyle?
But don't worry, unionists. Not a single Louboutin crossed picket lines; stars tiptoed around the strike to 'gift suites' for their goodie bags this year. Like a glamorous pick 'n' mix, they filled at will with shiny baubles, fashions and trinkets and, when that all became exhausting, rejuvenated with an oxygen facial or perked up with quick shots of Botox and Restylane.
Me, I'd be making a beeline to the designer bags and stuffing them with the Kiehl's covetables and Kenneth Cole fragrances I've heard were on the free list.
I'd also be elbowing past Keira, Charlize and any other celeb standing between me and the Stem Organics Intensive Eye Serum, which was originally booked for the Fred Segal gift tote. Since insider bible WWD raved that the Australian brand was one of the "Best Organic Beauty Brands 2007", Stem Organics has been a hot seller in Fred Segal and the Intensive Eye Serum is a favourite. Soaked with antioxidants, Australian bush flower essences, ginseng and organic hibiscus peptide, it's said to be 'Mother Nature's Botox'. Outta my way, Angelina!
