Helen Mirren: Celebrity Product Pick

by Jamie Sanford on January 18, 2011

Did everyone watch the Golden Globes this weekend?  I was more excited this year as Trent Reznor won his first Golden Globe! I’ve been a serious fan of his since I was much younger and I’m thrilled for his current success with co-composing the score for The Social Network.

Anyway, the red carpet was a great time as well, there was so much fabulous fashion! One person I didn’t see on television during red carpet coverage but who I loved on the show was Helen Mirren.  She always looks fabulous!

Examples:

This is Helen Mirren at the 2007 Oscars.


This is Dame Helen Mirren at the 2010 Oscars – still looking sexy and fabulous.


Here is a photo from the Golden Globe Awards, earlier this week.  Helen looks more fabulous when you see her side by side with the runway model in the dress in this post on Red Carpet Fashion Awards.

Anyway, I’m a big fan of Helen – I don’t think I’m alone in that, a lot of people seem excited about the fact that she remains so sexy and gorgeous and she is 65!

Helen Mirren appeared in last month’s “On My Mind” feature in In Style magazine, and discussed her love of stripper heels, her desire to work with Quentin Tarantino and finally, her discovery of a Revlon product called Just Bitten.


I am not aware of this product and haven’t tried it but I definitely will pick it up now.  That applicator looks like it would be really easy to use, and Helen insists that the color sticks around for quite a while.

The Helen Mirren pick, Revlon Just Bitten lip stain, is available in multiple colors for $7.69 from Amazon.

Montell Williams’ Juicer.

by Jamie Sanford on October 20, 2010

Hmmmm.

Why should I be getting a juicer from famed talkshow host Montell Williams?

…yeah I don’t know either.

It looks pretty legit though.

Product description:

Take a step toward better health and wellness with the HealthMaster fruit and vegetable emulsifier from Montel Williams. With its strong 1200 watt, 2HP motor and commercial-grade, stainless steel blades, this powerful pulverizer has the strength to liquefy whole fruits, vegetables, and leafy greens in just minutes–while still retaining the vitamins, minerals, nutrients, antioxidants, and phytonutrients.

It makes a great shake–but it’s not just for drinks! In addition to being able to make your favorite juices and power smoothies with ease, this high-speed emulsifier can be used to make all-natural baby foods, salad dressings, frozen desserts, and more–you can even use it to mix ingredients for cupcakes, muffins, pizza dough, and breads. You’ll have fun experimenting–there’s 318 recipes in the included cookbook to try.

Hot, healthy foods–it makes them too. Using centrifugal friction, the HealthMaster naturally cooks foods into hearty, robust soups right in the carafe. And, it does it without stripping away important nutrients like boiling can. Your hot foods will be just as healthful as raw foods–now that’s something you’ll really warm up to.

Ready to try it for yourself? Choose your favorite color and get ready to create and taste the healthiest foods of your life. Once you have the HealthMaster Emulsifier in your kitchen, you’ll wonder what you ever did without it.

The Montell Williams Juicer HealthMaster Emulsifier is available from QVC for $164.52.

I’m behind again, but I had a wonderful weekend and I didn’t get around to writing any posts. Forgive me.

Anyway, I’ve been wanting to try this for a while, celebrity products!  So many random celebrities either design or simply endorse products, so this week will be all about that.

First up? Eva Mendes dinnerware from Macy’s.

It’s a little WTF, I don’t know what Eva as an actress has to do with home decor, but let’s go with it.  The designs are really nice, the line is called “Vida by Eva Mendes” so it’s clearly meant to evoke some Latin flavor.

Product description:

Garnish ordinary meals with the sunny botanicals of Catalina. Hand-painted dinnerware in flared square and palm-friendly shapes are drenched in soft yellows and tangerine, sky blue and pale green for a warm, exuberant welcome three times a day.

The 4-piece place setting from Eva Mendes is on sale for $35.99, available at Macy’s.

Neil Lane for Kay Jewelers

by Jamie Sanford on July 21, 2010

I have been a massive fan of the strides made by affordable (and accessible) brands have made by partnering with high-end brands to elevate the exposure of both, while creating products that are available for all.  Target is obviously a great example, having partnered for years with fashion designers, interior design specialists and party planners to create great items for the everyday shopper who isn’t going to buy a $500 blouse.  H&M has done this, Payless has a shoe line developed by Christian Siriano of Project Runway fame – you get the idea.

So I am really excited to have learned about this latest partnership. Neil Lane for Kay Jewelers! I have seen Neil Lane jewelry on celebrities for years, and his designs are very much my taste, with a vintage feel that I love but never could have afforded before! Note that none of the items are cheap, but come on, they are diamond rings, what did you expect?  The prices range from $2,599 and $7,799. (The downside is that they don’t appear to have wedding sets, which seems odd given the large collection of engagement rings. Maybe they will come soon?)

Here’s a link to the whole collection.  I’ll post a few favorites here.

Would love to see comments on this one. Do you have a favorite designer that you would love to see create an affordable option?
