Unless a story is about our buddy Biver (aka the Happiest CEO we ever knew) or the occasional ‘pretty girl‘, we don’t tend to feature too many posts just about celebrities here at Winderz-land.
We do, however, receive a fair number of press releases telling us all about the amazing exploits of celebs associating themselves with various watch brands.
The intent, of course, is to shift a few models off the back of a celebrity endorsement of same.
A fair few of these releases end up in the great recycle bin in the sky (we get a lot of emails) but let’s mix things up this week, have a bit of a fun and do a ‘Celebrity Endorsement Weekend Wrap-up Special’.
This may (or quite possibly, may not) become a semi-regular feature so keep those releases coming in!
First up comes news of an event held at the Highline Ballroom in New York by Raymond Weil, in aid of the Labyrinth Theater Company – of which Raymond Weil is a partner.
Four celebrity teams participated in a ‘fearsome and hilarious’ speed charades competition to support the Labyrinth’s 2011/12 season.
The theme for this year’s event followed that of a horse race and was titled Celebrity Charades 2011: Down and Derby.
The teams were made up of Josh Charles, Tom Colicchio, Jesse L. Martin, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Michelle Trachtenberg, Bob Balaban, Bobby Cannavale, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Chris ‘Five Gallons of Mayonnaise’ Rock, Cynthia Rowley and Kristen Wiig.
Each celebrity player was gifted a Raymond Weil timepiece.
I’ve heard of two of those celebs. How about you?
Next we have some bloke called Kellan Lutz – he’s in Twilight apparently – popping up all around town sporting a variety of Philip Stein numbers.
He certainly gets about: red carpet affairs, clubbing, MTV Awards, movie premieres and a spot on the Chelsea Lately show.
*Phew* – good job he has Philip Stein’s ‘Natural Frequency Technology’ to rely on.
Clinically shown to reduce-stress, increase focus and improve sleep don’t you know! ;-)
Well, it turns out Movado have some exciting news they want to share.
Are you sitting down?
You know what, let’s leave this one to Movado themselves – I couldn’t say this any better:
“Famed celebrity stylist and co-owner of Decades boutiques, Cameron Silver, held an intimate dinner at his LA home to celebrate the Chris Benz for Movado BOLD collection on Thursday, November 10. The turnout was amazing! Attending were some of Hollywood’s hottest young actors and stylists including Dianna Agron (Glee), Rose McGowan, Julia Jones (Twilight), Kerry Washington, Eva Amurri, George Kotsiopoulos, Brad Goreski and Addison Timlin.”
Bragging rights to anyone who actually knows who those people are?
And that, dear reader, concludes this weeks’ celebrity news.
Story editors at OK and Heat Magazine can rest easy :-)
I may have just added myself to every PR agency blacklist in Hollywood, but if not please stay tuned for our next thrilling installment!
