Robert Verdi's Celebrity 2010 Gift Guide

Bookmark and Share


Okay, I was happy with my 1st Annual FE Gift Guide, but I got my vicarious celebrity fix in when I checked-out Robert Verdi's 2010 Gift Guide. Robert is a television personality, celebrity stylist, and general go-to guy of good taste. He's also one of my most fabulous fashion acquaintances, whom I first met years ago at Mercedes Benz Miami Fashion Week Swim. At that time, he was the spokesperson for Sunglass Hut. Watching Robert working alternating pairs of Pradas, Guccis and Dolce frames gave me a whole new view on how a simple pair of sunnies could change your entire look. After that, I don't have any trouble understanding why women will happily drop upwards of $350 for a pair of Chanel or Prada frames.
Robert's one of the celebrity stylists who actually deserves the title. The names in his A-list orbit who he shares with us in his private Holiday gifting list video include: The Jolie-Pitts, Tina Fey, Robert Pattinson, Fergie, Beyonce, and more of that ilk. When you're dealing with that crowd, you'd BETTER have some pretty great ideas. These A-listers have EVERYTHING, but Robert's come-up with the just-right gets for each and every one of them.

Small surprise there. Robert's CV includes co-creating and hosting Full Frontal Fashion,co-hosting Surprise by Design, with co-host, Rebecca Cole, where they redesigned a room/exterior space at someone’s home on a $2,500 budget, in only one day. [The show became the Discovery Channel’s highest rated daytime show.] Add to that, his gigs hosting Fashion Police, and styling Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria Parker, as well as designing two of her Los Angeles, California homes.
That's just the tip of the iceberg and if this has served to whet your appetite,visit

In the meantime, don't waste any more time and check-out Robert's entertaining video and find-out all about who's getting what. Robert's a great showman and in this video he bears a bit of a resemblance to Mike Meyers, one of my favorite comedians.

A few teasers: Koolaburra "Victoria boots"

for Fergie
[love!], a cool Timex for Robert Pattinson [a great watch does NOT have to be expensive-o], and my personal favorite, a bottle of Perrier-Jouet champagne for William and "Kate the Commoner". It's a great bottle of bubbly with the added bonus of beautiful white flowers [painted on the bottle] that will never die on you.
