VIP Beauty: Elizabeth Arden’s Icon Party
The Event: Elizabeth Arden’s Celebrating An Icon Party
The Venue: Portland Place, London
The VIPs: Holly Valance, Tamara Ecclestone, Trinny Woodall, Susannah Constantine, Amber Atherton
Yes!!! It’s finally here. The launch all you beauty fanatics have been waiting for. Elizabeth Arden’s fragrance free 8 Hour Cream has now officially landed. The 80-year old wonder balm has been a staple product for many a VIP, with celebrities such as Florence Welch calling it a ‘first-aid box in a tube.’ Curing burns, chapped lips, sores and adding a glossy sheen to eyebrows, this cult product does it all. The launch party housed a bunch of crazed, 8-Hour junkies, and we had a front row seat:
The Gossip: (1) Poor Holly Valance. The talk that was on everybody’s lips was the appearance of her orange skin. The Strictly star may have lashed on the tan for the dance competition, but what’s her excuse now, eh? Other than the Willy Wonka factor, the Aussie looked stunning as she attended the launch of the revamped cream. The soon to be Mrs Candy said she will be teaching Nick a few moves for their impending wedding, and still dances at least once a week. Click here to find a ballroom club near you, and keep dancing!
(2) Billionaire heiress Tamara Ecclestone donned a multi-coloured dress and electric blue heels to the beauty event. Bernie Ecclestone’s Puppy-loving, private jet-hopping, reality show daughter, showed that once again she doesn’t have a real job. Tamara spent the evening convincing everyone that Channel 5 will commission a new series of ‘Billion $$ Girl.’ The socialite said she was very anxious to get back to ‘work,’ but for now is enjoying going to events. It’s a hard life, isn’t it Tamara?!
(3) Fresh from her ‘date’ with Guns ‘n’ Roses guitarist Slash, Trinny Woodall looked liked the cat that got the cream. The fashion stylist, who looked great at the event, had been spotted on a dinner date with the American rock star. The pair met through Trinny’s ex-husband Johnny Elichaoff, who happens to be BFF with the hell-raiser. The television star stayed tight lipped about her ‘friendship’ with Slash, but the smile spread across her face spoke volumes. Ooooh, we can see a love triangle forming!
(4) Made in Chelsea star Amber Atherton attended under an official capacity yesterday evening. The blogger and reality star was there to review the launch and to road test the product. The Sloane Ranger couldn’t stop talking about how great the balm is, and she ‘never leaves the house without it.’ To keep your VIP lips silky smooth, click here to buy it.
