IT Lounge: Day 6!

September 14, 2011, 6:59 pm

A slew of fresh faces and new voices stopped by to visit NKPR’s pop-up gifting suite on day six of the film festival. It was a true girl’s day out as Jessica Tyler, Melinda Shankar, Samantha Munro, Alyssa Reid, Tattiawna Jones and Helene Joy got a peek at new fashion and beauty finds. Of course, the IT Lounge didn’t disappoint young male stars Munro Chambers, Shemar Charles and Jesse Labelle, who showed their support for official IT Lounge charities Artists for Peace and Justice (APJ) and Camp Oochigeas.

Though they each have their own unique style, Degrassi: The Next Generation cast mates Jessica Tyler, Melinda Shankar and Samantha Munro all scored fab fall finds from RW&CO., including red carpet-worthy jewel-toned dresses, flowy tops and chic accessories. They later hit Goody’s hair chair and marveled at how easy it was to use the brand’s Simple Styles Spin Pin and Trendy Twist.

Actress Tattiawna Jones (Flashpoint) indulged in Baker Street’s carrot cupcake with dreamy cream cheese icing. Though she doesn’t have to worry, the long-legged beauty will be working it off with new yoga and fitness gear she picked up from Stratusphere Living.

YouTube musical sensation Alyssa Reid followed her nose to ConScent’s line of luxury scented tees. Her pick? Their fresh apple-scented “I Love New York” style!

A few lucky listeners of 99.9 Virgin Radio won insider access to the IT Lounge and an exclusive tour alongside morning show hosts Maddog and Maura. Enjoying luxury transportation thanks to IT Lounge car partner Mercedes-Benz, the contest winners recovered from their amazing IT Lounge experience in the Great Gatsby-inspired oasis designed by Karen Sealy of Sealy Design Inc., stocking up on snacks from NKPR’s legendary IT Lounge candy bar and sipping on SKYY Vodka film festival cocktails and FIJI Water.

Inside the Fila suite, Jay “Maddog” Michaels picked up a new pair of classic Fila kicks in one of the season’s hottest colours – green.

Up-and-coming singer/songwriter Jesse LaBelle took a pair of eco-friendly House of Marley headphones back to the studio. Maybe he’ll put them to use as he fine-tunes his next album, due out in 2012.
