The W Hotel Lakeshore has all the amenities that tourists and locals alike can enjoy. The hotel boats a sleek and modern design, a variety of stellar options for food and drink, and one of the most impressive panoramic views of the city. And as of last night, they now offer premium shopping as well! The Hotel rolled out the red carpet for an exclusive peek at the W Hotel Store's new Spring/Summer 2010 Global Glam collection. The launch party was set up in some serious style, as only it could be with hosts Michigan Avenue magazine's Susanna Negovan, CelebTV's Kelli Zink and "The Bachelorette" Jillian Harris at the reigns.

Held in the hotel's main floor lounge, the collection was displayed by live models, in addition to mannequins and vignettes. The pieces in the collection were grouped into three sassy sets, based on the stylings of other W Hotel cities: Sail Above the Blue: Barcelona, Downtown Daring: New York and Red Carpet Ready: Hollywood. Each city's set brimmed with drool-worthy items, perfectly in step with the stylistic theme.
Barcelona boasted crisp, beachy separates by Yumi Kim, accented with Dannijo jewelry in cool, ocean blues and a flirty turquoise bag by Rebecca Minkoff. New York set the bar for edgy chic with over-sized, structural jewelry by Kendra Scott, a sexy, cut out Dolce Vita dress and a Rebecca Minkoff clutch in a bold wash of purple. And the aesthetic of Hollywood was equal parts playful and elegant with full skirts by Wink, Suzanna Day's amazing Deco necklaces and a peek-a-boo pantie and caftan set by Deepa Gurnani. Needless to say, there was plenty to celebrate!

Guests perused the pieces while indulging in cocktails and incredibly yummy appetizers. Even Bliss, the hotel's resident spa, got in on the fun by offering skincare samples which we were all to happy to try out! And if the VIP treatment at the party couldn't have gotten any better, the W Hotel Store offered 20% off any item in the Global Glam collection. That was plenty exciting, but we were even more thrilled when we found out the promotion would be available for the NEXT TWO WEEKS! So stylize your own Global Glam girl ensemble by checking out W Hotels The Store and then head over the the W Hotel Lakeshore, where the collection is being offered exclusively in Chicago.
