Dita Von Teese, Cointreau® Brand Ambassador and International Queen of Burlesque, celebrated the launch of her latest limited-edition travel accessory,  “My Cointreau® Travel Essentials” at an intimate cocktail party hosted at the Royalton in NYC. Draped in a stunning long, black Herve L Leroux gown, Louboutin heels, and her signature bold, red lips, the burlesque icon was radiant as she introduced us to her vintage-inspired travel bar.

I imagine my reaction to the “My Cointreau® Travel Essentials” set was similar to a kid seeing their dream Barbie Playhouse in a window of  toy store. Big eyed and nearly speechless, I turned to my date, asking ‘can I please have it?’! It’s so old-Hollywood glam.

I asked her what her favorite part about being a brand ambassador for Cointreau® was, to which she replied “working for a brand I really believe in and love”.

Consider it added to the Christmas list!

Lucky me, I started the evening backstage with sponsors Bumble and Bumble and Bobbi Brown who were doing the hair and makeup for the show and got a sneak preview of Suzanne Somers, Dita Von Teese, Giuliana Rancic, Eve, Camila Alves, Ann Curry, and Gayle King in their gowns!

I was cheering on the inside when I saw Suzanne Somers–I’ve been watching her since Three’s Company through her thighmaster infomercials, I think my excitement was warranted. Especially in her adorable Ina Soltani mini dress that
