A red carpet photo back drop for a bottled water companyâ€™s mobile spa? The Evian Detox Spa opening was just-short-of-over-the-big-top. Pink ropes, pink interior, at least they didn’t robe the estheticians in Evian pink and baby blue. And while buzz of a Kelis appearance circulated, nary a celeb was spotted.
But the invite offered FREE transportation for celebs! (Upon approval, limited availability.) We counted on at least one ex-Laguna Beach cast member or Round 3 Idol cast off to show. The criteria for ‘approval’ was not published so fear of rejection may be the reason reality stars were absent.
Proffered backrubs and hydrating hand massages made for a pleasant experience as we guzzled champagne and nibbled on chocolate-covered strawberries. (FashStatute #345.6: One is not seen consuming non-liquid calories in public during Fashion Week.
SheFinds Tip: Slip passed finger foods discreetly into a napkin, smile at the hot actor/model/cater waiter, and steal into the nearest restroom to stuff your face preventing a too-early in the eve drunk-on-free-champagne scene.)
While most of the industry should be in perpetual detox, Evian is in town (5th Ave) until Sept. 28th so when the booze is oozing by mid-next week (read: mid-day today) one can revitalize. The Frenchy bottled water did deserve a fancy party because the full spa experience that was scheduled and subsequently received was truly fabulous.
Don’t get jealous, the pop-up spa is open to the public. But you have to pay for your luxe treatment. It’s worth it. French women don’t get fat and they don’t have stressed skin even though they drink like…us.
