CDG 2010

Last night, I had the opportunity to work at the Costume Designers Guild Awards held at the Beverly Hilton. The CDG is an annual event that honors the costume designers for television and film and this year it was sponsored by Swaroski and Lacoste. I rushed there right after FIDM and had to do a quick-change in the car (in the LA traffic)! When I got there, it was non-stop madness. I assisted the producer the whole night--running around after her, getting passes, calling reps, confirming presenters, trying to get the final script to print, carrying multiple phones and walkie-talkies, escorting celebrities, setting up the green room, getting press ready... and on and on and on--this producer was everywhere, she worked so hard, she was like superwoman! She made this show happen and I can't imagine being in her shoes (but I was surely running after them). There were some moment of panic though -- like when we couldn't find Nicole Kidman. But after all the craziness backstage, the show ran smoothly. Spotted plenty of other A-listers...like Emily Blunt, Anna Paguin, Jayma Mays, Alan Cumming, Kristen Bell, Anna Kendrick, Roma Maffia, and Jessalyn Gilsig. I also got to meet the brilliant costume designer and FIDM Alumna, Mona May! Overall, it was a beautiful night and a magical event honoring some of the most talented and creative minds in the industry. Kudos to jLine Group!
