The famous Plaza Hotel in New York has gone pink for Christmas this year – a reason for celebrities and dignitaries to love the world-famous ultra-luxe hotel that much more!
With quirky designer Betsey Johnson on board, an 18-foot tall, signature brand of hot pink Christmas tree (apparently the hotel’s first ever Christmas tree) has been put up and is truly a vibrant sight to behold!
The creation is filled right to the top with bright pink decorations, ornaments, and..get this – exclusive Betsey Johnson merchandise. Not a hint of green can be seen amongst Betsey’s signature lips, glitter, and spangles.
The tree is said to have been inspired by its most famous resident – a fictional little girl named “Eloise”. Eloise famously lived in the hotel’s top floor in the eponymous children’s book series written by Kay Thompson and illustrated by Hilary Knight.
At the official unveiling of the pink masterpiece, designer Betsey Johnson who is almost 70 years of age (believe it or not!) said, “I always knew there was a cosmic love between me and the Plaza. Even though I didn’t grow up with Eloise, when I moved to New York, Eloise’s story and the Plaza were real aspirational fantasies for me. I love that they’ve kept the architecture, history, and beauty of The Plaza.”
“And the tree, it’s filled with girly stuff – pink feathers, sparkles, foldout Eloise paper dolls.”
