Celebrity Gift Bag to Make Its Debut at the Cannes Film Festival - Goodie Bag Created Exclusively for The American Pavilion

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 5, 2005

Boasting a wide array of high-end products from both American and international designers, celebrities visiting The American Pavilion at this year's Cannes Film Festival will receive a VIP goodie bag filled with new, trendy and travel friendly items valued at over $4,000 that was designed exclusively by Madison & Mulholland (M|M).

Jane Ubell-Meyer, M|M's president, selected interesting, hip and cutting edge products that are guaranteed to spark a buzz in Cannes. "Goodie bags have become such an important element with A-list events and since The American Pavilion is the place to be, we need to make sure that our M|M goodie bag is both memorable and becomes part of the celebrity must-haves at the festival," explains Ubell-Meyer.

Headlining the 30+ products: ideal for strolling along the Croisette is a beach tote from J. Jill; Concord Records' collector's limited edition of a four CD jazz set; a gorgeous CD case by Swing design; Harman Multimedia's JBL On Tour portable speakers (iPods must-haves). Too many screenings? Slip into SoyBu's luxe chenille robe along with L. B. Evans O3 holofiber slippers - the world's first body-responsive textile fiber. Pamper yourself - Yon-Ka Paris presents "Lait Nettoyant, "Lotion PS" "Lait Corps"; splash on Immaginal's Beyond Forever (a fragrance set in 10K gold-plated vessel). When the sun finally sets insist on Dr. Jessica Wu's signature blend of Eastern/Western age-defying eye cream. Try Eve'olutions limited lip enhancer "Mystery Kiss. Getting ready for the paparazzi? Elizabeth Grant's Torricelumn skin care; Sircuit Skin's Reviver Pak; St. Tropez's self tanner; Crystal Clear's skin (cellulite be gone!) repair kit; natural soothing exfoliating bath products from Bella Lucce; and Aromatherapy and Esthetics from Von Natur. And don't forget to write home with Abby Jean's Hollywood stationery. If you get homesick peek into the retro 50's inspired gift from Laguna Beach in a Box. Bored? Don't be - since everyone's doing it in Hollywood you too can learn to knit (just like Julia Roberts!) with the Suss Knit Kit. Or maybe you need a fix of good old-fashioned American gossip. Peter Boyd brings it all out in Nemesis (it's all there: Jackie O, Ari, RFK). And finally when you are ready to head back to the States pack it all in Saucony's classic athlete's backpack and shoes.
