Champagne Collab

Montecito dynamic duo Jon and Brandis Deitelbaum, producers of Beau Joie champagne, have teamed up with the Georgina Chapman, creative director and co-founder of the fashion label Marchesa.

Fashion and fizz come together in new Beau Joie champagne edition

The groundbreaking new collaboration will include several new products available on and cross-marketed globally beginning with luxury retailers, and eventually rolling out to high-end resorts, hotels and retail.

“Georgina and I were asking each other why there isn’t a champagne brand that’s an extension of a fashion house, something for everyday occasions or served at special events,” says Brandis. “It’s such a natural fit, fashion and champagne, yet nobody else has done this, so we decided to create it.

“From the beginning, the goal with this partnership was to design a line that truly combines the best of what both of our brands capture – love, enchantment, romance, chivalry, whimsicalness and empowerment.”

The first product, Marchesa for Beau Joie, is a 1,000-bottle limited edition hand-beaded and embroidered couture bottle, boasting 10,000 beads and crystals.

“We took an in-depth journey through our archive, with a focus on our most iconic pieces,” says Georgina. “We were looking for elements that combine our two worlds, with the objective of creating something uniquely beautiful.”

Each bottle, priced at $599, is numbered and packaged in an exquisite gift box with a note from both Brandis and Georgina.

Doc Sells

Montecito actor Christopher Lloyd, 81, has listed his laid-back beach cottage in Ventura, asking $2.995 million at first, then dropping the price to its current $2.95 million.

The 1928 1,000 sq. ft. property on Mondos Beach has easy access to Ventura and our rarefied enclave.

The two-and-two home is essentially a single floor affair, although there is an attic guest room.

The galley kitchen and bathrooms have been recently totally renovated.

The Back to the Future star won two Emmys for his role on the hit ‘70s TV show Taxi. His latest role is in the feature film Nobody, a thriller out this summer.

Summer in La La Land

As expected, Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, are looking for a house to spend this summer in Los Angeles.

The tony twosome, currently residing in Canada, want a property where they can hold meetings and entertain, according to E! News.

“They have started looking at homes online and are in the process of interviewing security teams,” says one source. “They are getting their ducks in a row and seeing if it’s logistically possible.”

If they do move to the Big Orange, I think we will undoubtedly see the Duke of Sussex, a keen polo player, and Meghan at the Santa Polo Club, given his best friend, Argentinian ace Nacho Figueras, the Ralph Lauren Polo model, is a regular player during the season.

Staying Strong

Singer Olivia Newton-John sees her third bout with breast cancer as “a battle.”

Olivia, 71, says she is getting stronger and better all the time, with cancerous tumors reducing in size.

She revealed in September, 2018, the cancer had returned after it was first diagnosed 25 years ago.

“Life is a gift,” says Olivia. “I have an amazing life and I intend to keep going with it.

“I want to help other people with the disease. I want to see an end to cancer in my lifetime so other people don’t have to suffer.”
