5th Annual LG Innovators’ Ball 2011

LG Innovators Ball 2011A night of sensory deception, deceiving and delighting the five senses was the theme for this year’s Annual LG Innovators’ Ball. The Ballroom’s Executive Chef, Tawfik Shehata prepared a whimsical menu for 500 dinner guests that piqued their palates and intrigued their senses. “I’m eating in the dark!” tweeted one party-goer, “Oh My God, I love lasers.” I missed the $150/ticket multi-course dinner and light show. If the food at the exclusive party that followed was any indication of what they were serving, then I missed out big time.

The Ontario Science Centre’s annual charity event began with a reunion with an old friend in the Joe Fresh Lounge, followed with a wine and cheese tasting mission with the beautiful boho-chic princess and Joe Fresh PR intern, Maddalen Pasini. It took a while for the timid Toronto A-listers to hit the funky illuminated dance floor. The long queue for free manicures and hand massages might have had something to do with it. Once the go-go dancers took to their podiums and the freshly manicured ladies had gotten some drinks in them, they managed to drag their boys to the dance floor and started groovin’ harder than Carlton at a Tom Jones concert.

Victoria’s Secret Angel Lily Aldridge Prefers The Classic Man

It was just last month that model Chanel Iman stopped by Toronto to promote Victoria’s Secret new Love Bra & Fragrance Collection.  Chanel was kind enough to give It’s All Style To Me blog followers a brief orientation on lingerie shopping for that special someone.  Very convenient, seeing as the launch came only days before Valentine’s Day.  This month, Victoria’s Secret has been nice enough to bless us with a visit from yet another one of its bombshells, in town to promote their newest Bra & Fragrance Collection called Incredible.

Lily Aldridge, who I had the pleasure of meeting in Toronto last year, has earned her angel wings in what is only her sophomore year at Victoria’s Secret.  Not a big surprise, given – a) she’s one of the most beautiful women on the planet, and b) fashion and modeling runs in her family.  Lily’s mother was a model, as are two of Lily’s sisters, and her brother is a fashion photographer who happens to be married to model Kristen McMenamy.  Older sister Saffron Aldridge was the face of Ralph Lauren in the 90s, while her little sister Ruby Aldridge who Lily reveals she’s very proud of, has recently become the face of Marc by Marc Jacobs.

Lily joined media at Toronto’s Eaton Centre and Dundas Square for a quick photo-op and interviews, before working her way north to Toronto’s Yorkdale Mall for a two-hour meet and greet with fans.  Victoria’s Secret Incredible Bra & Fragrance Collection features five bra styles:  the Front-Close Push-Up, Front-Close Multi-Way, Push-Up, Demi, and the Front-Close Demi.  Lily explains that the new bras are virtually seamless and super-soft, featuring innovative self-adjusting straps and smoothing back construction that creates a perfect fit every time.  No more bulging clasps or loose straps hanging off your woman’s shoulder.  Prices vary between $49.50 – $58.00, expect to pay a few bucks more for prints versus solids.  Also available is the Incredible Fragrance Collection, a floral-fruity blend of bright magnolia, sparkling pear, and sultry sandalwood.  The perfume retails for $55, the scented mist for $28, and the body lotion for $24.  All of the Incredible products are available in stores, by catalogue, or online at www.victoriassecret.com.

Valentine’s Gifts for Her: Victoria’s Secret Angel Chanel Iman

Welcome to the third and final It’s All Style To Me, Valentine’s Gifts for Her post.  In the first post, I had asked several of the sexiest fashionistas in the GTA and beyond to give me their Top Five Valentine’s Day Picks for 2011.  Responses ranged from the traditional flowers, chocolates, perfume, jewelry and lingerie, to the more sentimental like breakfast in bed, homemade cards, and a romantic night out or in.  For the second post, we explored jewelry a little closer by taking a look at the recent Canadian launch of the Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry Collection available exclusively at Birks Canada.

So for the final post, I thought that I would delve deeper into a Valentine’s Day gift that is more for his enjoyment, than hers.  I love women in lingerie.  In fact, I don’t think North American women wear enough lingerie.  I headed over to the Victoria’s Secret lingerie store in Toronto’s Eaton Centre today for the launch of their Love Collection.  I had the chance to talk to Victoria’s Secret Angel Chanel Iman, as she unveiled some of the sexiest gifts for Valentine’s Day.  Victoria’s Secret is celebrating the most romantic holiday of the year with a new Love Bra Collection and Sexy Little Things Noir Love Me Fragrance Collection.  The bras are priced between $49.50-59.50 and the fragrances between $10-$58.

Whether you like to watch that special someone slowly take their lingerie off, or get a little naughty with it on – the Victoria’s Secret Collection makes a great Valentine’s gift.  For Chanel Iman event photos please visit the It’s All Style To Me Facebook Page.
