Affair: A Mamarazzi® Event with Actress Salma Hayek

When: Thursday, August 6, 2015 @ 1:30PM

Hot Spot: Dolby 88, NYC

Deets: SiriusXM’s THE MOMS Denise Albert and Melissa Musen Gerstein together with Funoogles and Plaque HD hosted a Mamarazzi® Event with Actress Salma Hayek on Thursday, August 6th, 2015 at Dolby 88. The event brought together influential moms and media for a special advance screening of Salma’s new film, The Prophet.

Before the screening, guests gathered outside the theater for interactive displays with event co-hosts Funoogles and Plaque HD. Funoogles is a new, customizable kid’s glasses line which launched April 2015, which allows for children to switch the color of the frames based on what they are wearing or their mood. Founder Jessica Darcy founded the company after seeing her daughter Ella-Jane, who has a congenital cataract which almost claimed her vision, yearn for glasses where she could express her personality and change the color of the frames each day. Plaque HD is a revolutionary, new toothpaste that reveals plaque so that you can remove it with directed brushing and flossing. Utilizing a natural, plant-based Targetol Technology, the toothpaste identifies plaque by leaving behind a light green film, which is removed with further brushing. Also available to guests were delicious bites from Treathouse and platters from Fromaggio Cheese while they sipped on boxed water provided by Just Water.

Immediately following the screening, Salma Hayek sat down for a Q & A with The MOMS Denise Albert and Melissa Gerstein where she discussed her new movie The Prophet, which is based on the volumes of poetry written by Lebanese-American author Kahlil Gibran. The project, which she also produced and spearheaded said that its coming release is akin to “being pregnant for four and a half years and finally giving birth.”

For her it is a passion project as the book as it connected her with her Lebanese Grandfather and this passion for The Prophet goes beyond her personal connection to it, she hopes to inspire children to change the world.

“We are all consumers and follow what other people dictate to us,” she said adding, “We are programmed to think either this or that. We need new people to think outside of the box.”

Thinking outside of the box is a lesson she imparts onto her daughter and said that she always tells her that she can be the best person you can be when you go outside of your comfort zone.

“When you push yourself to be the best person you can be, you can discover your superpowers,” she said.
