It pays to be a celebrity at Sundance! Stars at the 2016 film festival in Park City, Utah, were gifted everything from private jet and helicopter rides to high-end Canada Goose and Moose Knuckle jackets — and even 24-karat gold smart watches.
Sundance isn’t just a destination for indie films. It’s also a hot spot for free designer swag. Celebs like Chelsea Handler and Nick Kroll were escorted through gifting lounges like the Kari Feinstein Style Lounge and Debbie Durkin’s EcoLuxe Lounge (powered by Choices Recovery and Shriners Hospitals for Children), and given thousands of dollars’ worth of free gifts!
Orange is the New Black star Natasha Lyonne, for one, received a 24-karat gold-plated Huawei smartwatch worth over $800. And Joe Jonas walked away from the Kari Feinstein Style Lounge with a whole bundle of swag, including a PetCube that allows the singer to watch his new French bulldog puppy on his phone, talk to him, and even entertain him using a remote laser pointer!
Joe’s brother Nick Jonas and Daniel Radcliffe, meanwhile, were gifted Moose Knuckle jackets worth up to $800 each. Elsewhere, Sorel was on hand to gift stars like Sophia Bush and Chelsea Handler some of their toasty booties — worth up to $200.
The gifts don’t stop at the lounges, though. At the hottest spot in town, the TAO pop-up club, celebs are gifted all the free liquor they can drink. Tequila Don Julio, an official Sundance sponsor, and Moet Imperial Nectar Rosé were handing out bottles to stars like Gabrielle Union and Adrian Grenier. At a table, these bottles can retail for up to $500.
