An Intimate Night With Dame Edna for Jenny Craig

April 28th, 2012

I had the pleasure of spending a very intimate night with entertainment royalty – Dame Edna.

It was in the basement at the Civic Hotel in Sydney where I got to see the very endearing Dame Edna on stage speaking about Jenny Craig and how she, along with her Manager, Barry Humphries will strive to achieve their weight loss goal of 15kgs each.

In hysterics for much of the night, I can’t think of a time I have felt more privileged to have been graced by one of Australia’s greatest living treasures in this very private and rare opportunity. A good 45 minute session with Dame Edna was exactly what everyone in the room needed. Allowing questions from Trevor Ashley, Peter Everett, Mike Goldman and Glen-Marie Frost, Dame Edna answered with quick witted and supremely detailed answers, all with the poise and elegance of a legend.

It wasn’t just Dame Edna who kept the photographers on their toes, the moment the scary Spice Girl Mel B and husband Stephen Belafonte arrived, the sound of flashes and murmurs “Mel, Mel, look here, Mel”, “Oh my God, Mel B is here”, “Wow, it’s Mel B, she looks incredible” filled the room. And it was true. She looked incredible. With a body to salivate over, Mel B lost 15 kgs in 20 weeks after being ambassador for Jenny Craig.

I’ve met many international and local celebrities and I must say, I was a little star struck seeing Mel, but then I actually got to meet her and spend much of the evening with her and her hilariously extroverted husband. Mel B was so much fun, coming out with the funniest one liners, but also being an absolute sweetheart.

Other guests included my long time friend Peter Everett, Channel 10′s Breakfast presenters Andrew Rochford and Kathryn Robinson, Dr Nikki Goldstein, Trevor Ashley, Mike Goldman, Chucky Klapow and the gorgeous Glen-Marie Frost. Below are some photos of the silliness Dr Nikki and Peter Everett got up to with the crazy couple.

What an amazing night – but if you want the X-Rated uncensored version of the night… Contact me privately! :-)

The ‘GLAMROCK’ AW2011 Campaign was shot on home soil in Sydney, Australia at a palatial Rose Bay harbor mansion and exudes a new direction for the label; one which combines the glitz & glamour in every piece that has become a staple but also one which now adds a BOHO Princess vibe and really pushes the label into new territory.

Styled by one of Australia’s Premier fashionista identities; Cosmopolitan Australia Magazines Chief Fashion Editor Nicole Adolphe, the overall theme really sees a strong , decadent and lush vibe present for the AW2011 Collection.

“The color palettes across the pieces play with the staple colors fans have come to love – including vibrant turquoise, coral, white, browns, creams and Black mixed with the customary Chrissy L Bling & a dash of BOHO.

“Spending so much time abroad this year as our label grows stateside has greatly influenced this new collection”, says Designer Chrissy Leighton.

“From Vintage Shopping in New York, The Glam life in Los Angeles and the hectic pace of Hong Kong – each place really influenced parts of this collection – the pieces are almost diary entries in my travels abroad this year”.

Appearances on some of the world’s most recognisable women also show that the label is making leaps and bounds in the industry from red carpet turns with Tina Fey, Mila Kunis, Minka Kelly, Shontelle, Melanie Brown, Amber Lancaster, Rihanna and seen on downtime moments gracing the likes of Britney Spears and Eva Longoria. With the label finding its place in the celebrity world, each collection really moves to really wow both celebrity but more importantly the everyday woman.
