Here Is All the Swag Celebs Are Getting on Golden Globes Night
This weekend, the fundraising and special-events company GBK Productions held their annual Golden Globes gifting suite at the W Hotel in Hollywood, where an array of mostly small-businesses, charities and luxury lines set up shop to share their wares with those lucky enough to have been invited. This year’s attendees included Jane the Virgin‘s Gina Rodriguez, black-ish‘s Anthony Anderson, Switched at Birth alum Gilles Marini, Psych vet Dulé Hill and some of the Vanderpump Rules crew. We scored a tour of the event—title sponsored by Pilot Pens—for this peek at the goodies going home with the rich and famous as they prep for tonight’s big show. Among them were…
LifeCell — The presenting sponsor from South Beach had bundles of product from their skin-care line, including an all-in-one anti-aging treatment and an under-eye serum that comes in a cooling applicator.
The Creative Coalition — The charitable organization gathered together jewelry, candles, skin-care products and other giftables from The Artisan Group’s small-business owners and designers.
The MyIntent Project — Founder Chris Pan’s movement, to encourage people to share more truth and inspiration with each other, is personified in this hip line of bracelets and pendants emblazoned with the wearer’s favorite phrase or personal intention.
BoomCase — Coveted coolness was loud and clear in the form of vintage luggage that’s been turned into portable speakers by insanely inventive co-founders Dominic and JP Odbert.
Cynthia Gale jewelry — Along with gift certificates for the New York-based designer’s sterling silver jewelry, visitors also saw a selection of her line, including tattoo-inspired bracelets.
Hayari Couture — Paris-based creator Nabil Hayari was on hand with a sampling of his gowns and accessories, as well as free bottles of his “Only For Her” fragrance.
SHHHSilk pillow cases — Launched just a few months ago, founder Olivia Christie hooked folks up with a super stylish set of silk pillow sheaths perfect for travelers tired of those wretched rags most hotels pass for cases.
Pilot Pens — The title sponsor’s high-end fountain pens took center stage at a display celebrating the “Gold Standard of fine writing” that also showcased the company’s ballpoint line and art-inspired collection of retractable fountain pens.
Lambda Legal — Devoted to achieving full equal rights for the LGBT community and favored by the likes of Scandal‘s Dan Bucatinsky, Vampire Diairies’ alum Nina Dobrev and Orange Is the New Black‘s Lea Delaria, LL reps were on hand to raise awareness.
American Hat Makers — Need a handcrafted cowboy hat or leather steampunk top hat? This California-based team’s work is wild, whimsical and, now, probably adorning some famous heads.
Beija-Flor Jeans — Between the eco-friendly denim and the figure-flattering designs inspired by Brazilian fashion, it’s no wonder Oprah named the jeans brand, from mom-daughter team of Kathy Moça and Emilie Whitaker, as one of her favorite things.
Hale Bob fashions — Female guests were gifted with tops and jackets from the boutique brand, which specializes in faux fur accents and vegan leather items seen on clients like Sofia Vergara and Eva Longoria.
Tweezerman — Nothing said “baller” better than the personalized tweezers and makeup brushes up for grabs at the suite’s final room.
Trtl Pillow — Forget those U-shaped airport neck pillows. From now on, expect to see stars sporting these scarf-like pieces with more ergonomic neck supports sewn into the design on your cross-country flights.
Other items in the swagathon included Relief Beds (from the organization that donates bedding to impoverished and disaster victims with every purchase of their travel sleeping mats); a citrusy-floral fragrance from Truly Yours Parfums; Jewelinx, clever plastic hooks that allow users to pair their jewelry with outfits on the hanger; sandwiches from sports-team hot spot Ike’s Place; and certificates for services at Cali-based Burk Williams Day Spa.
