P&G Beauty & Grooming Awards Hosts Star-Studded Evening to Celebrate Top
Editorial and Creative Talent in Canadian Beauty and Fashion Industry

TORONTO, Nov. 12 /CNW/ - Fashion and beauty took centre stage last night at the second-annual Canadian P&G Beauty & Grooming Awards.  More than three hundred of Canada's brightest stars descended on Toronto to celebrate the exceptional editorial work that brings beauty, grooming and fashion news to Canadians.  Adding wattage to the star-studded evening was host Queen Latifah, Grammy Award® and Golden Globe Award® winning singer, actress and COVERGIRL spokesmodel, who dazzled attendees as awards were handed out in recognition of the outstanding talent in the Canadian beauty and fashion industry.  

"It was an honour to be a part of this night.  I know the hard work that goes into transforming the faces we see on the screen and in pages of magazines," says Queen Latifah.  "It's great that there is an evening dedicated to the talent being recognized here in Canada."

The glam cocktail evening brought out a who's who of Canada's style-makers including:  Jeanne Beker host of Fashion Televison; award-winning R&B singer, Jully Black; supermodel Stacey McKenzie; fashion designers Joeffer Caoc, David Dixon and Marie Saint Pierre and interior design sensation Brian Gluckstein.

"Having all the stellar talent under one roof is truly a unique experience and I was overwhelmed with pride at the calibre of work produced here in Canada.  It's important for P&G Beauty & Grooming to continue supporting and nurturing the growth of the thriving fashion and beauty industry in this country", says Tim Penner, President, P&G Canada.  "With over 220 submissions this year, it is a true testament to the industry's passion for their work.  Congratulations to all the winners, finalists and all entrants!"
