Shimmer, Sparkle...and Lots of Pink!Party People: Nick Verreos, Tarina Tarantino and Jennifer Uner, Tarina Tarantino Beauty Launch, Siren Studios Hollywood Tarina Tarantino held a fabulous Hollywood Bash to launch her complete cosmetics collection last night Siren Studios in the heart of Hollywood. Inspired by her popular jewelry line, Tarina is offering fun products such as Conditioning Lip Sheen, Eye Dream Hypershadow and Fleur de Lash Mascara, as well as items like the Sparklicity Shimmer Dust, which sprays a mist of glitter (it was in my Goodie Bag and YOU KNOW I will be using it!). The line is available exclusively at Sephora stores. Pink Diva: Tarina Tarantino on the pink carpet I was so excited to stop by and congratulate my good friend Tarina and her husband Alfonso Campos. They've always been so kind and supportive of me, and I just LOVE THEM! I made sure to wear my very own Tarina Tarnatino "Wizard of Oz" crystal-studded Heart Pin, of course. If Only I Had a (Red Sequined) Heart: Nick Verreos on the pink carpet I was happy to meet up with my other good friend, Jennifer Uner, who oversees the Los Angeles Fashion Week Calendar and created the Los Angeles Fashion Awards, in which I was a presenter one year. Since I arrived alone, I was happy to make her my official party date! Make-up Vanity Booths, Tarina Tarantino Beauty Launch, Siren Studios Hollywood The party was HUGE. A DJ spinning great retro tunes (I am sure HALF the 20-something crowd didn't even recognize those great late 70's disco songs!), bars serving and yummy hors d'oeuvres being passed around. There were even Make-Up Vanity Booths with make-up artists ready to "Tarina Tarantino" you up with lots of shimmer! Of course, there were lots of celebs: At one point, I spotted Kelly Osbourne (in leather and plaid with a big ol' Chanel bag) and... Debi Mazar, who always looks fabulous, sporting a gorgeous Tarina Tarantino necklace. I also ran into the two cutest girls of the night: Actresses Ariana Grande and Elizabeth Gillies, who play "Cat" and "Jade" respectively on Nickelodeon's Victorious TV show which premieres March 27Th. They actually approached me and confessed what big fans they were and how much they love my designs and Project Runway. Ahhhh, Love them! A perfect way to end a fun evening.
