Virtual Beauty Buzz, St. Louis Press Club, Neiman Marcus – a film by Miran Halen

Virtual Beauty Buzz, by Neiman Marcus and St Louis Press Club, was filmed and produced by Co-chair Miran Halen who went behind the scenes to film and collect clips from others to give us a more in-depth look at what it looks like to put together a Zoom event during a pandemic.

By the time Halen was done collecting, she had hours of material to present and ended up with a short documentary under seven minutes that has been said by critics to be “Very Entertaining” and “Fun to Watch” to name a few. She told a story about the Beauty Buzz event beyond the Zoom screen and what it entails to put one together.

St. Louis Press Club & Neiman Marcus Beauty Buzz Raises Over $12,000 for Journalism Scholarships

Jasmine Huda, Fox 2 News anchor and reporter, was the emcee for the show along with 100+ viewers from all over the United States. The exclusive online event aired on September 12, 2020 and was coined with the phrase “Bright Eyed and Ready to Face the Day.” This little soiree happened to raised over $12,000 for local students seeking scholarships for journalism.

We were all taught how to put on make-up and were given tips on skincare from beauty experts at Nieman Marcus who featured products such as Bobbie Brown, Chantecaille, and La Mer.

This years Beauty Buzz was a success beyond what was expected. We can’t wait for the trail-blazing Miran Halen and her posse from the Press Club have in store for next year’s Beauty Buzz.

Our sincere thanks to our incomparable Beauty Buzz co-chairs Phyllis Langsdorf and Miran Halen for their incredible leadership during this difficult time. This year’s Beauty Buzz was truly a success thanks to their leadership as well as our event sponsors and our partner for the last 10 years, Neiman Marcus.
