When September comes around, Toronto find itself in the glare of the global media spotlight once again, as the stars of the silver screen, movie industry professionals and the general public descend on the highly prestigious Toronto International Film Festival for eleven days of red-carpet screenings, award ceremonies, industry conferences and full-on partying.

Naturally, attendees keep a frenetic-paced diary during the festival, and the constant cycle of screenings, promotions and social occasions can of course take its toll on healthy sleep patterns and regular beauty regimes. Luckily Venus Beauty was on hand to make sure that the stars were looking their best at all times, offering visitors the use of their treatment facilities at a pop-up Venus Beauty Media Lounge hosted at elle Fitness and Social in the hip King West district of downtown Toronto.

Venus Beauty organized an exclusive shindig in which Festival-goers were able to rub shoulders with VIP stars from the popular Bachelor Canada TV series and especially invited members of the media corps. Not wanting to miss a moment, Venus Beauty gave us a call and we promptly dispatched one of our top teams to cover the event for posterity.

Current Bachelor and Bachelorette stars from Bachelor Canada underwent relaxing, non-invasive skin-tightening, body-contouring, skin-resurfacing, and cellulite-combating beauty treatments administered by Venus Beauty’s team of skilled beauticians. Treatment over, they could enjoy exclusive cocktails and trays of delicious sushi in the spacious, sun-filled and loft-like interior of elle Fitness and Social’s downtown location.

Venus Beauty’s Legacy and Viva therapies employ the latest in beauty technologies and cater to both men and women, offering treatment for the face, neck, and abdomen. Between sessions, guests to the Media Lounge could have their hair and make-up retouched up by professional stylists, or relax in leather armchairs enjoying glasses of chilled champagne.

Rejuvenated and re-energized by the treatments and light refreshments provided, attendees were once again ready to hit the grueling festival party circuit looking their best. “I looked 5 years younger,” said one VIP attendee. His Bachelor Canada co-star added that the experience was “delightful, it was really, really nice.”
