Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott picked up Hissyfit products along with her four ACA wins.
Makeup and skin care brand Hissyfit and creative director Reggie Wells gifted celebrities including Laura Bell Bundy, Nancy O’Dell, Hillary Scott and Jennette McCurdy at the American Country Awards gift lounge produced by Backstage Creations at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The gift lounge kicked off on Dec. 5, 2010 culminating with the inaugural American Country Awards, which were held the following day.

Along with a variety of Hissyfit classics, including Saving Face, Body Double and Handy Work, the brand provided country stars and celebrities with Clockpot, its newest collection that offers highly pigmented colors in silky formulas in an easyto- use palette.

“I can’t think of a better venue to debut the new Clockpot, my first major initiative as creative director of Hissyfit,” said Wells. “It’s a week of firsts—the first-of-its-kind Clockpot, the first ever ACAs... It’s a perfect fit!”

Menswear designer John Bartlett, one of the judges of the Cool vs. Cruel contest, and fellow designer Toby Revis were among the attendees who received gift bags containing VB Cosmetics’ vegan products.
