HBO Luxury Lounge

Special Event

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… JetSet friends, we officially kick-off the 2014 red carpet season this weekend! In celebration of the 71st annual Golden Globe Awards, I stopped by the 12th Annual HBO Luxury Lounge inside the Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills to find out what celebrities, nominees and invited guests of the media will be taking home this year.

Instantly, upon entering the suite there is absolutely no wonder why access to this high-profile gifting event is so highly coveted.

PANDORA, the proud sponsor of the HBO Luxury Lounge was on hand showcasing their affordable luxury collection including customizable charm bracelets, rings, earrings and necklaces including the new Essence collection. Guests were also treated to on-site manicures inside the PANDORA suite where they could show off their newest jewels and gems for the PANDORA mani-red carpet.

In a perfect world I would wear cashmere everyday and Magaschoni can make this dream come a reality. Their display was filled with soft goodness that you wanted to wrap yourself in from head to toe. Cable knit blankets for home, travel kits for on the go, and the most amazing hoodies and lounge pants just because. I bet Jesse Williams of Grey’s Anatomy and Lee Daniel’s The Butler, was thrilled to receive the cashmere sweaters, accessories and blankets to bring home to his beautiful wife, and their newborn baby girl, Sadie.

We are a JetSet Spotify family, so when I spied with my little eye, the brand that fills our home with our favorite tunes, I was jazzed. Spotify (the only way JSF streams music,) was on hand making sure all talent left as very special gold card members. Privileges include a special membership to Spotify and customized limited edition Jambox which I’m sure the celebs are totally grooving to right now.

Every JetSet parent in the know is well aware of what a great product GoGo squeeZ is to travel with. Gifting guests a variety of all-natural squeezable applesauces that are fun and flavorful. GoGo squeeZ also made each one an honorary AwesomeSauce Cardholder. How brilliant is that? AwesomeSauce card carriers receive free product for a year!

How pumped is our favorite gal, Jane Lynch of Glee, right now to have received a gift card for personalized sessions?

Who can resist a table full of diamonds? Certainly not me! Sofia Fiori Diamonds from conservative to elaborate, designs were displayed to compliment everything from everyday casual to red carpet couture. Who are we kidding? No one can ever have enough diamonds. They will never, ever go out of style. Pop sensation, Cody Simpson received a beautiful flower necklace for his gorgeous gal pal, Gigi Hadid.

This year, Boiron has sent their resident pharmacist to the HBO Luxury Lounge to cater to guests’ individual needs by helping them feel red carpet ready from the inside out with an array of reliable homeopathic medicines and treatments.

The global lifestyle brand, Nautica, gifted talent and guests navy puffer vests and their Voyage N-83 fragrance for the men and beautiful knit ivory infinity scarves for the women in the casual classic designs that Nautica is widely known for.
