I’m convinced that I have the best friends in the world. One such pair of friends, Georgio and Mikaela Fernandez, owners of the fabulous LadyLash Studios, invited me to a Jimmy Choo party last week at the very posh Ritz Carlton Palm Beach. It was too much fun! Held in the very luxurious Eau Spa, where Georgio and Mikaela have a studio, this was one great show!
I got there just before show time and was able to spend some time with Georgia, a renowned makeup artist, while he beat the faces of the models. Mikaela, a celebrity lash expert, was nearby. There were hugs and kisses and jokes all around. Then it was time for the show.
I hadn’t seen much of the spa at this point, since the the salon is just inside the door. But walking to the Self Centered Garden, where the runway had been set up, I got to see much more of the 42,000 sq ft facility. Wow..that place is HUGE! It has 19 treatment rooms with customized scents, music and colored lighting–depending on your treatment. There’s a wishing well, private garden villas, a Scrub and Polish Bar, saunas, steamrooms, and jacuzzis, a fitness center and exercise studio, a hair and nail salon, and the list goes on..
The show was amazing, outside, under a pergola. The crowd gathered, drinks in hand and the show began. There were plenty of oohs and aahs–Jimmy Choo has some fantastic designs. My heart ached for some of them, but my wallet said, “NO NO.” Afterwards, guests mingles both inside and out, admiring the many Jimmy Choos on display, getting makeup tips at the LadyLash studio, buying clothing and accessories in the boutique, and simply people watching. It was definitely THE place to be seen.
I snuck away to get pictures of the spa for you all, and I also snagged a menu of services. They offer everything under the sun, including:
