Daily Pampering: Peninsula Hotel Beverly Hills adds glamour to guests stay

Peninsula hotelIn Beverly Hills, everyone is red carpet-ready, all the time. Photo ops are an art form and whether you’re in jeans or a designer gown, there’s always a reason to be red carpet-ready. Thanks to the Peninsula Hotel, Beverly Hills guests can also get their glamour on with the “The Red Carpet-Ready Experience.”

Just in time for the upcoming “Awards Season” in Hollywood, this unique Peninsula Academy offering is a unique opportunity for guests to be photographed in a style that captures the glamour of celebrities on the Red Carpet at a movie premiere, the Emmys, or the Academy Awards.

The “Red Carpet-Ready Experience” begins in the privacy of the guests’ hotel room or suite, with a hair professional stylist and makeup artist. The stylist will consult with female guests, who will have the unique opportunity to borrow exquisite pieces from the hotel’s exclusive Henri J. Sillam jewelry boutique to glamorize their gowns. The guests will then be photographed by award-winning Hollywood photographer Ryan Forbes, whose work has appeared in Town & Country, Conde Nast Traveler and Elle Décor.

For the full Red Carpet experience, guests can be photographed against The Peninsula Beverly Hills’ step-and-repeat banner, a backdrop like those used at Hollywood movie premieres and awards events. A week later the guests will receive a selection of proofs from which to select the perfect portrait.

The price for your red carpet debut? This Hollywood-style pampering costs you $950.
