The high-tech virtual world has given way to a low-tech appearance. Many star glam teams and fashion designers were also in quarantine during the pandemic. While it might give some viewers the comfort of seeing anchors relaying news from their basement when their two-year-old child slides down the stairs in the background, celebrity event designer Edward Perotti still wants to see the hissing stars.
Perotti is a highly sought-after celebrity event designer, producing shows for stars like Ariana Grande and Nick Jonas. His fancy parties are being held now because the world is driving pandemics out of their homes. But he offered his thoughts to the Showbiz Cheat Sheet about the current state of entertainment. In addition, he shares what he thinks can look like big and small celebrity events once the world emerges from COVID-19 hibernation
Stars must stay dressed for work
Although homeworkers joke about not wearing pants anymore for work, Perotti thinks the stars hosting the virtual shows should not only wear pants, they should work harder to dress as they usually do for work.
He was impressed with the speed at which production houses could improve their renewed program despite being in quarantine.
“I have to admit, I was impressed with how quickly some of the shows played to virtual,” he admitted. “I agree we all still need to be at the forefront and it is important to remain relevant. But can they try to present themselves and the guests? I understand the desire to look good with the audience at home, but in these times, people are looking for escape in entertainment. ”
“I would rather see my television host dressed like they were in the studio vs. wearing a T-shirt and baseball cap,” Perotti said. “That’s what my neighbors look like. I don’t need to see it on TV. I want to know that this ‘normal’ version is still seen as temporary.”
He added that we all have to “wear pants” when we meet online. “And I honestly think the same thing must be true for everything, from virtual cocktail parties with your friends to Zoom team meetings at work. There is no reason why you should not dress that part, whether you are in a fancy restaurant or your manager’s office, or on your couch. (But maybe skip the stiletto if it hurts!)
What will future celebrity shows look like?
With a glimmer of hope that emerges that Americans can return to some kind of normalcy someday, like what kind of party or event in the future, is it a fancy star birthday party or your own wedding? Perotti said he was recently quoted as saying “people need to tear Band-Aid in the hope that the show will move forward in the next few months.”
“I hope to exceed expectations that we can immediately go to this other side and that my industry – event planners, hotels, airlines, catering, florists, musicians – can get back to work,” he said. “The reality is that we can plan upcoming events, but it will take months for guests to feel comfortable gathering again in large groups. Even at that point, we need to look at new ways to slowly restore things to normal. “
Perotti suggested celebrities to embed safety into the event but made it fun, perhaps by providing guests with “branded” gloves and masks. “If done correctly, people might worry at first. But when they are all together, they will see humor in it, “he said.
“Remember one thing, when bringing people together for the first time, humor, attention, authentic, sense of humor, will greatly help your guests relax,” he advised.
“My only last thought: I would ask anyone who plans an event between now and when everything is settled, not to cancel unless absolutely necessary,” he added. “Deferring the fall or winter is the way to go.”
