FORESAKEN by TRUE BLOOD launch
Where does one naturally go during severe weather warnings in the city? Well, deep underground of course. HBO’s hit TV show “True Blood” inspired a beauty collection with HSN and the two teamed up last night for an eerie-chic sort of launch party in the AIRE Ancient Baths in Tribeca. KRISTIN BAUER was on hand at the incredibly appropriate venue to celebrate (think 20 foot vaulted ceilings of stone with pools of various temperatures below).
The creative masterminds behind the event brought in all the “True Blood” Gothic-Southern references like Spanish moss and rose petals filling every nook and cranny of the space. It was quite literally steamy as one ventured downstairs to the bar to sip on pomegranate infused drinks with a distinctly vampirish flair. To keep guests occupied, models pouted and posed in a glass box (usually a sauna by day) complete with vampire teeth and a deep red mouth courtesy of the new collection. Manicurists were on hand to give guests a lovely new look with Deborah Lippman’s sexy, True Blood inspired shades. The crowd wandered out onto the streets just as the weather was clearing up, a little sexier and steamier than when they had arrived. written by Elizabeth Landers.
