For the fifth year, rock-it promotions, inc., turned one of the Intercontinental Hotel Toronto Yorkville’s suites into the Tastemakers Lounge, a celebrity gifting suite. Talent and VIPs in town for the Toronto International Film Festival were gifted with cosmetics from Joe Fresh Beauty, board games from Mattel, tasty treats from Sexy Gourmet Food Co., apparel from local eco-label Guats, totes from Vancouver-based Bring Your Own Bag (BYOB), gift certificates from Didier, prestige fragrance for men and women from D&G and more. Celebs were even able to get camera-ready hair for the red carpet with the assistance from Yorkville salon Chiggy’s Touch.
Photojournalist Rosie Levine, also joined the Tastemakers Lounge, inviting guests to participate in her forthcoming book, Celebrity Encounters of the Peace-ful Kind. For the past few years, she’s been photographing numerous celebrities casually and candidly flashing the peace sign, including Katie Couric, Morgan Freeman and Justin Timberlake. Proceeds from the book will be donated to War Child.
Lipstick Powder N Paint were onsite with our trusty Flip video camera to see what was happening in this fabulous lounge.
