The lifestyle of a celebrity in Hollywood during awards season can be very stressful. In addition to being seen at all the hottest parties and preparing tongue wagging sound bites for the hundreds of media outlets flocking to Hollywood, celebs must look good. As lot of it has to do with the star, sure but so many behind the scenes are called upon to make an A-list celebrity look good.
Many award shows sponsor a celebrity gifting suite where stars can get products and get a celebrity retreat. Backstage Creations, which specializes in award show gifts and custom backstage Celebrity Retreats, hosted the "Celebrity Retreat" at the 2014 Writers Guild Awards which were held earlier this year.
This year's host Brad Garrett, along with presenters Bruce Dern, Julianna Margulies, Dermot Mulroney, Julie Delpy, Henry Winkler, Betsy Brandt, Joe Manganiello, Amber Tamblyn, Mel Brooks, Alex Trebek and Stana Katic, to name a few stopped back stage to get a preview of the hottest products around.
The Celebrity Retreat previewed such items as:
Hairfinity from Brock Beauty, Inc B, Trips to Tahiti and Hawaii, Cuisinart Slow Cookers, Colgate Optic White Products, A Catherine Original, LLC Jewelry, BiGR Audio Headphones, Invitation Consultants Custom Wine Tags, Iobella USA- Bella for a Day Certificate, Justin’s Organic & Fair-Trade Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, Shop Glam Expressway's The Nothing to Hide Clutch, The Oaks at Ojai Health Spa- 2 night/3 Day Spa Getaway, Woodhouse Chocolates in the company's Signature Blue Favor Box and a Black Chronograph Stainless Steel Watch from World of Watches.
A Celebrity Retreat was also out at the annual NAACP Image Awards last month for their event. The event recognizes excellence in all media formats for people of color in the entertainment industry. The show featured appearances by some Hollywood's biggest and most talented stars including Forest Whitaker, Stevie Wonder, Terrence Howard, Regina King, Michael B Jordan, Lou Gossett Jr and Ed Asner to name a few.
Some of the products previewed at the NAACP Image Awards were:
Hairfinity by Brock Beauty, Designer Eyewear by Marchon, BIGR Audio Headphones, Lug Cruiser 4-wheel Luggage Bag from Lug Life and many more.
