Surrounded by the hottest baby products out there and coverage from Access Hollywood & Extra, celebrities were gifted Chic Papoose baby slings at the Boom Boom Room gifting suite on Thursday January 11, 2007. This was an invitation only event for celebrity parents and the media held at The Century Plaza Hotel, 2025 Avenue of the Stars, Los Angeles, CA 90067, kicking off the 2007 Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles.
Impressed by the durable design and unique fabrics, stars such as Angie Harmon, Angela Bassett, Ming-Na Wen, Sherri Shepherd, Chandra Wilson, Jolie Fisher, Kevin Sorbo, Rena Sofer, Samantha Harris, Shirly Brener and Carnie Wilson selected slings from the 2007 selection. Angie Harmon added that she was really looking forward to using this as she balanced her daughter on her hip. Angela Bassett selected a feminine style for holding her daughter and a more boyish one for her son. Celebrities and the media alike loved the slings and a few of them, such as Emily Rutherford, even put them on immediately to hold their tiny tots as they walked through the event.
One of the other attendees (Amy Tan of Amy Tangerine) carried her tiny dog in an Addison sling, proclaiming that it was one of her "favorite" new items "in the world". She was able to talk on her phone, drink water and hold her beloved Bamboo (a mini greyhound and jack russell mix) close all day.
The most popular styles were Cassidy, Addison and a limited edition butterfly print.
