Cannes-based hairstylist to the stars Eros Giuliani was on hand to give advice and to gift guests with an exclusive bag full of hair-nourishing Philip B Botanicals products.

Other beauty lines on hand were Ooh La La Beauty Bar’s cosmetic line, Grande Naturals’ lash and mascara lengthening products and Flint, the world’s first retractable, refillable, reusable, recyclable lint roller.

And if they needed more time at the beach, celebrities were offered a three-night stay at St. Lucia’s four-star Bay Gardens Beach Resort & Spa while a few select guests were given the keys to rooms to Belmond La Samanna in St. Martin, which has access to one of the Caribbean’s most exclusive beaches.

Every star needs a bag, so JLEW Bags offered up a “rock star” clutch made from leather, complete with a tassel and charms. Zumer Sports supplied traveling celebs with backpacks and duffel bags made from actual sport ball materials such as baseballs, softballs, footballs, basketballs and tennis rackets.

Great for selfies, LuMee was available for auto-image-loving celebs to take home as the original and patented front-facing LED-lit smartphone protective case for “picture perfect” lighting every time.

To put a spotlight on a good cause, this gifting suite included hand-crafted, commemorative bracelets by The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. Each bracelet is engraved with the initials of a gun violence victim and includes their personal story.

While perusing all the goodies, guests sipped on Napa Valley’s Heitz Wine Cellars’ very first vineyard-designated Cabernet Sauvignon.
