At the Sonya Dakar Beauty Boot Camp & Gifting Lounge, celebrities received signature treatments by the skincare maven, eyelash extensions, lash applications, hair styling, manicures and pedicures, and so much more.

America’s favorite Idol judge, Paula Abdul, just couldn’t get enough of the suite. She fell in love with her lash application by Ja’Maal Buster of Fab’Lous Lashes and the Sonya Dakar UltraLuxe Facial, that she scheduled another appointment for both right before the Emmy’s. Of course, Paula did a little shopping while she was there, picking up a matching python clutch and belt with an interchangeable rhinestone clip from Cecelia Accessories. Most of all, she’s looking forward to taking her 5-star Caribbean Escapes Belize trip, which comes complete with a spa package.


Cast members from the hit Broadway musical Wicked stopped by the SunStyle LA sunless tanning booth for a full body contouring sunless airbrush tan and took home cases of ICIO, a breath freshening water for the rest of the cast.

It was no accident that Emmy winner Jaime Pressly looked radiant as she gave her victory speech. She has Sonya Dakar to thank for her glowing skin. Jaime’s pre-Emmy skincare treatment included the Sonya Dakar UltraLuxe Facial, Red Light Collagen Therapy, and Oxygen Treatment.

The gorgeous Rebecca Gayheart aka Mrs. McSteamy, Charlie Sheen’s fiancĂ© Brooke Mueller, and Big Shot’s Jessica Collins each took home a metallic shift dress from ABS by Allen Schwartz.

While the stars visited the annual suite, they signed the Sonya Dakar Pink Jet Set Travel Kit that includes must-have Facial Fitness basics for perfect skin, which will be auctioned off for October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the auction will be donated to support the efforts of CancerCare.


The Madison & Mulholland suite at the swanky Sofitel Hotel was the only gifting event to be completely interactive. Celebrities such as Scott Baio of 45 and Single proudly knitted for charity who knew Scott could knit? He also experienced the Magnolia Audio/Video media room, which featured the Pioneer Elite 2008 Flat Screen TV and $20,000 Martin Logan speakers.

Everyone’s favorite reality show star, Omarosa couldn’t wait to see the new Butler Bag styles to add to her already growing collection and Tim Daly of the new show Private Practice picked up a bag for his wife while chatting up the girls – both couldn’t have been nicer!


They also received Lady Lanell’s swarovski crystal sandals, Bust-Ease for instant cleavage on or off the red carpet, fun Jumpin’ Jammerz footed pajamas, Little Stork Delivery Bags that will have the mother-to-be ready for labor, delivery, and the hospital, the ZUCA Luggage Zee Ultimate Carry-All, which is the perfect travel companion, delicious mouth-watering Chuao Brazilian Chocolates, and organic makeup by Nvey Cosmetics.


Soap hunk Sean Kanan loved his new indestructible Panasonic ToughBook laptop computer and taking a ride on the Vectrix Electric Scooter, the first zero emission high performance all electric two-wheel vehicle.

So what was Scott Baio knitting for anyway? It was the Jimmy Bean’s Wool Knitting Circle where he and other celebrities knitting a few rows to create a unique pink scarf that is being auctioned off for charity, where each row will be tagged with the celebrity’s name.

Wow! The celebs certainly did clean up at the GBK Productions Emmy Suite held at the historical Roosevelt Hotel. They received gift certificates for Lasik eye surgery from Doughtery Laser, a complimentary one year membership to Crunch Fitness, a $10,000 certificate to Renaissance Health Centers, a $20,000 certificate to Iron Horse Trike Works towards the building of a motor bike, a Foundation Room Gold Membership from the legendary House of Blues, a three hour private cocktail cruise on a yacht from American Yacht Carriers, an I to I Travel “volunteer vacation” to one of 500 locations around the world for up to 3 months, a Mexican vacation and stay in one of Karisma Resorts’ Presidential Suite, and $4,000 worth of private chartered “fly time” from Bombardier SkyJet.


Former Dancing With The Stars contestants Mario Lopez and Stacey Kiebler walked away with the coolest shades from Cinzia Eyecare because the sun never stops shining in L.A., a George Forman Grill and Juiceman Blender from Salton Inc. which no kitchen is complete without, and they’re sure to stay healthy with a years supply of vitamins and detox products from Happy Bodies.


When it came to beauty, the stars received products such as Revitalash for beautiful long lashes and makeup brushes from Cinema Secrets to take home, while getting manicures and pedicures by Art of Beauty, spray tans by Body Glow, and hair analysis and shampoo treatments from Esuchen.

Entourage’s Kevin Dillon and movie star William Baldwin were excited to take home lingerie from Brazilian designer Aline Alcantara, an elegant Maya handbag, and beautiful fashion-forward pearl necklaces from Lindsey Marie Pearls which Paula Abdul ordered more of and promised to wear on next season’s American Idol.


No doubt stars like Debra Messing and Joey Lawrence will enjoy playing the new Operation game with their kids who will be wearing adorable clothes from Sophie Catalou or one of the fashionable and fully functional bibs from DaBib all while they enjoy their milk or juice in their new LilyBugs sippy cups.

GBK Productions donated 20% of its proceeds to four charities including Jane Kaczmarek and Bradley Whitford’s Clothes Off Our Back, Kevin Bacon’s 6 Degrees, The Humane Society and the Harbor Foundation. Each charity will also auction off a complete GBK celebrity gift bag, worth over $100,000.

Debbie Durkin’s Main Event Red Carpet Lounge at the elite Friars of Beverly Hills was the only gifting suite to be broadcast live by NowLive.com.

Celebrities packed all their goodies in reusable and environmentally friendly bags from Bags on the Run. So what did they get? A $500 gift certificate from Lamborghini Watches, but Boston Legal’s William Shatner and Sylvester Stallone’s model wife Jennifer Flavin each walked away with a watch of their own. Caribbean Escapes gave away trips starting at $5,000 to five star resorts around the world to stars like Kevin Dillon of Entourage and soap veteran Diedre Hall. They also received beautiful vintage jewelry from Lara Noel Hill Designs, authentic handmade purses and clutches from Shamar Designs, lingerie and not-so-innocent body products from Undercover Wear, the finest all natural cleaning products from Shaklee, amazingly scented candles from La-Tee-Da, and Extra Virgin Body Products, the newly launched skincare and body line for both men and women.


When they weren’t collecting goodies, celebrities like Rex Lee of Entourage and Kevin Federline’s ex, Shar Jackson had their teeth whitened and enjoyed paraffin hand wraps by the new Bella Spa in Beverly Hills. They were also pampered with luxurious facials, massages, and eyelash extensions, and BedHead was on hand to perform hair magic.

Of course what star doesn’t need a bite to eat and drink. They had their choice of HER Energy Drink, H2OM Water with Intention, Boresha Gourmet Coffee, Fully Loaded Tea and cocktails to wash down the different chipotle sauces served with chips from The Art of Chipotle, the new Dr. Melina Protein Bars that is available in three delicious flavors, and cookies from Marius Morsels.


The event benefited Invisible Children, an organization that helps end violence towards children in Northern Uganda and spcaLA, which brings about positive changes for animals.

The GreenLivingLifestyle Lounge & EcoSpa Retreat was the only Emmy suite to go completely green. Held at the Cisco home in Hollywood, guests enjoyed organic beauty treatments, munched on delicious food and drinks, and took some time to just sit and unwind in the spatial setting.

Perry Reeves of Entourage said she loved everything at the lounge. She felt completely relaxed after getting a Green Bliss EcoSpa massage using the brand new line of organic aromatherapy oils provided by Origins while her husband received a reflexology foot massage with a salve by Buddha Nose.

Soap star Diedre Hall looked even more beautiful after getting her makeup done by TRUE courtesy of TLC of Newport Beach, CA. She then stopped by to see nutritionist-to-the-stars, Brigitte Malayaa Britton who whipped her up a yummy shake made with wheat grass and liquid vitamins to keep her energized. Brigitte was also autographing her top-selling book The Palm Beach Way Diet, which is available in stores now, and expect to see two more books from Brigitte in the next two months.


James Pickens, Jr. of Grey’s Anatomy dropped by DrivingGreen.com to offset his carbon emissions by registering his vehicle. DrivingGreen.com is a service that offsets vehicles, flights and events. They made the entire event greenhouse gas neutral by offsetting all the carbon emissions including the electricity and round-trip travel for all guests.

Celebrities even had their choice of drinks – they kept hydrated with VaVa natural spring water, refueled with Steaz energy drink, stayed awake with CaffĂ© Sanora Coffee, sipped on some delicious tea from Mighty Leaf Tea Company, and drank responsibly with beer from Peak Organic Brewing Company and vodka from Organic Spirit Company.


The entire event benefited Communities for a Better Environment and Million Trees LA.

The Mix Media Emmy Suite, which was also held at the Sofitel Hotel had a green theme going. Kids or no kids, celebrities picked up products from the popular and gentle Nature’s Baby Organics, a line mother of two Adena Surabian founded to cure her infant daughter’s rash, skincare and makeup by Lavere Skin Care, and wonderfully scented bath and body products by Get Fresh.


Celebs were also able to borrow jewelry for the big night from Manak Couture Collection, which is made with beautiful and elegant diamonds, chandelier earrings made in Sri Lanka from Crysobel Jewelry, and one of a kind pieces from Kirsten Muenster.


They also had fun with Playing the Field Card Game, keeping healthy with Chi Tea, and drinking Illyria Source Water.
