In honor of the Golden Globes, Access Hollywood teamed up again with On 3 Productions for the 5th Annual “Stuff You Must…” lounge, which benefits the Lollipop Theater Network and Best Buddies. CVS/pharmacy makes a contribution for each celebrity who visits the lounge with the goal of raising $100,000.
And that goal was met thanks to stars like Justin Bieber, “Modern Family’s” Julie Bowen and Eric Stonestreet, Neil Patrick Harris, Lisa Rinna, La Toya Jackson, Alison Sweeney and Golden Globe nominees Jeremy Renner, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Gabby Sidibe and “Glee’s” Jane Lynch, who was thrilled to be there for a good cause.
“The minute we walk in they give a ton of money to Best Buddies, so this is the one gifting suite we come to,” Jane told us.
“It’s always a little bit of an embarrassment because we get such nice things, but this is a good one because it raises money for charity,” Golden Globe nominee Eric Stonestreet said.
Eric picked up a pair of New Balance sneakers from celeb trainer Harley Pasternak and a pair of jeans from Vintage Revolution. His co-star Julie Bowen spent some quality time at the CVS/pharmacy Beauty Club. This one-stop shop featured a smile bar from Crest 3D White Whitestrips, manicures by essie, makeup by Maybelline New York and blowouts by Nexxus Salon Hair Care, courtesy of celeb stylist Paul Norton, who has appeared on our live morning show several times and is such a sweet guy.
As a big shoe person, my favorite booth was the one with Pretty Ballerinas shoes, a fave of Kate Moss and Kylie Minogue. “The Biggest Loser’s” Alison Sweeney picked up an adorable polka dot pair and Jennifer Love Hewitt went with the Glitter Flats in black. As you probably know, I am obsessed with flats and I had seen this brand in magazines, but never in person. They are super cute and I was excited to find out that they are opening a store here in Los Angeles on the same block as my gym. Uh-oh, my wallet could be in big trouble!
Platforms and high heels were also represented with Ursula Mascaro footwear. “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” Taylor Armstrong and Lisa Vanderpump joked around, pretending to fight over a pair of the black and white platform shoe from Ursula Mascaro.
I also loved the Little Giraffe/Giraffe at Home booth. Moms know all about Little Giraffe - the hands down softest baby blankets out there and just about everybody from Katie Holmes to Jennifer Garner to Nicole Richie and Kelly Preston are fans. Rachel Zoe’s people stopped by the booth and picked up some white items for the baby boy she’s expecting. I had to laugh a little because as any mom will tell you - white is hard to keep clean! But I am assuming that Rachel will have tons of help, so it’s probably not too big of a deal for her. Neil Patrick Harris scored some baby gear for his three-month-old twins and all the stars received items from Giraffe at Home, which are comfy cover-ups and throw blankets for adults.
Celebs got personal with men’s and women’s personalized jewelry from Michelle Flynn Designs, including sterling silver bracelets, pendants, rings and cuff links stamped with inspirational messages. And there were cool vintage inspired clothes from What Goes Around Comes Around.
Jennifer Love Hewitt, who came with her boyfriend Alex Beh perhaps summed things up best. “We are given a really big opportunity because we are on TV and in films and to speak out and have a voice and be able to tell them that things are important. This is such a beautiful lounge, it’s just gorgeous.”
