Oscars 2011
Goodbye Bieber fever, tonight was all about Oscar fever! The pinnacle of awards shows arrived to crisp clear skies after a couple of days of freezing rain and in some parts SNOW here in Los Angeles. We'd been hearing for weeks about Anne Hathaway and James Franco's gearing up for Oscar hosting and couldn't wait to see what original fare they had up their sleeves. Read more here.

Grammys 2011

Watching tonight's lineup of musical superstars was not a chore, it was pure enjoyment!. The Grammy's  always make for good entertainment and loads of commentary, especially, when they break the rules of decorum and don see-through or meat inspired attire. Let's take a look at tonight's highlights and low points as we bring you our latest Red Carpet Manners at the Grammy's. Read more here.

Table Setting



This month we were heavily entrenched in awards season and the lure of Hollywood.  It was a long celebration that ended with Sunday's Academy Awards. This is our 3rd year commentating on the awards shows with our Red Carpet Manners and we were honored to be recognized by the Los Angeles Times as an expert in this arena.    


In other news, we are thrilled to announce the new location of our popular children's etiquette classes.  The Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel will host our first program entitled "Young Ambassador's Etiquette" next Saturday, March 12th. 


Beverly Hills Manners is pleased to participate in a number of exciting events this Spring including "A Soolip Wedding" sharing our expertise on the various etiquettes associated with the memorable occasion, and "Greeting Committe," a special residency program presented at the Hammer Museum that explores the ideas of hospitality and welcoming.  


We are forever amazed at the limitless nature of this business. As we've mentioned in the past, manners and etiquette affect every facet of our lives and there is literally no area that is untouched. This fact continuously inspires us and drives us and we look forward with anticipation to increasing our influence in this domain.


Very best,


Lisa Gaché
