Barrymore’s in the House

One of my favorite clients is Drew Barrymore’s make-up line, Flower. I’m on the fashion division at my co-op but I also help out with beauty and lifestyle. I was very lucky and was asked to work Drew Barrymore’s Flower event. The event was held at a bowling place in Times Square. Drew’s newest spring/summer Flower collection was on display in the bowling room that we rented out along with huge posters with Drew wearing Flower. There was also a french fries bar with four different types of fries and a delicious specialty cocktails. Drew is so adorable and nice! She asked me to get her a darker shade of make-up for her mother-in-law and when I brought it to her she was ecstatic, gave me a big thank you and hugged me. I was freaking out on the inside after Drew Barrymore hugged me. A celebrity has never hugged me! I was so excited! I’ve been a huge fan of Drew Barrymore throughout my life. I wanted to tell her that Fever Pitch (being a Boston girl and Red Sox fan) is one of my favorite movies that she’s in, but resisted because I feel like fans freak out to her all the time. She also gave me and the other intern, Emily, a huge once the event ended. She seems so down to earth and very normal. Not a diva at all! She was so kind, friendly and such a joy to meet. Plus getting two hugs from Drew Barrymore was absolutely insane!




  1. Okay this is incredible! It's so nice to hear that celebrities can be down to earth like that. I am so jealous that you got to meet her and be part of this event. You seem to have a lot of fun opportunities at your co-op, and I'm sure it's going to be hard to go back to class in a month!

  2. Ahhh I am so jealous!! You seriously have the most awesome experiences at your co-op! I'm glad you are doing all of these things and getting exposure to all aspects of the industry. I always thought Drew was a cool, down to earth girl, good to know that there is faith in celebrity-humanity 🙂
