The most popular accessories at the Golden Globes — besides a trophy or jewelry by Neil Lane — were the decadent chocolates from Godiva.
The high-end chocolate factory hosted a bar for their VIP guests and only RumorFix has the inside scoop on which celebrities got their sugar fix.
Katie Lowes from Scandal asked for the Hazelnut Crunch, Channing Tatum grabbed a Red Velvet Lava Cake, Kerry Washington had a pregnancy craving for Extra Dark Truffle, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting said she was “starving” so she stocked up on Truffles and Seth McFarlane kept coming back for seconds.
Besides the sweets, the lounge itself was a piece of art masterminded by Larry Abel and Raymond McCallister of Abel McCallister Designs. “It’s a great coincidence that the Golden Globes is in January right before Valentine’s Day so we kicked off the season of love with Godiva,” Larry tells RumorFix exclusively.
He and his team created pieces of art carved out of 44 different varieties of Godiva chocolate. And, each piece has hearts hidden inside paying homage to romantic film and TV scenes.
The chocolate sculptures took 500 man hours to construct and, Larry’s team was even able to create some 3-D panels by using approximately 1,200 gold Godiva boxes.
Godiva made sure every guest left a winner and took home some gold — in the form of Gold Ballotin boxes.
