IT Lounge 2008!

Posted on

Last year’s IT Lounge was such a big hit we’re doing ‘IT‘ again and we’re super excited! Celebrities go through a grueling schedule so we’re trying to make it a little easier for them with a special collection of survival must-haves for the 2008 Toronto Film Festival! Speaking of grueling schedules, here are a few of my personal Survival Tips for TIFF!

CLOTHING

You usually don’t have time to think about what you’re going to wear on any given day. So on my floor, I lay out my clothes in a grid – Day. Night (night’s usually just a different pair of shoes). And you’re done. Just one more detail that I don’t have to think about!

SHOES
It’s all about the shoes. I’m big into wearing a heel because I’m 5-foot-4, so I like the height. But a casual shoe is great on a day like Media Day at the IT Lounge, when I’m really busy. So the red little Mary Jane from Teva, for instance, is perfect on a day when I’m going to always be on my feet.

SLEEP
What sleep?! During the Festival, I probably get about three hours per night. I’m up really early and go to bed really late. And that’s why I need a lot of really great skin cream like Olay skin cream, the Olay Definity Collection.

DIET
Dr. Penny Kendall Reed and The No Crave Diet. It just works for me. I’ve been doing it now for eight months – and I asked her to participate in the IT Lounge because it’s changed my life. And I can tell the difference even now. Normally at this stage I’d be up by five pounds. But not this year!

September is Big Brothers and Big Sisters (BBBST) month and the IT Lounge is eager to show its support once again. Celebrities will have the opportunity to donate gifts from the Lounge to assist in raising money for BBBST programs.

Fila teams up with tennis star James Blake to create new men’s collection

Posted on

ATP World Tour tennis star James Blake has proven he’s got more than great moves on the tennis court — he’s got style.

High-end sportswear company Fila has just announced its joining forces with Blake to develop a  line of exclusive men’s apparel and footwear, inspired by Blake’s signature look.

The first collaboration of its kind in tennis, Fila and Blake will work together to design tennis, golf, fitness and lifestyle apparel, as well as performance and lifestyle footwear and accessories. The line will incorporate Fila’s heritage with a contemporary twist.

A limited collection will debut just before the 2009 US Open in New York, and the official collection launches Spring/Summer 2010.
