This March, 25-year-old Ohioan Jenna Petardi enjoyed an experience of her Hollywood dreams. Normally, Jenna “never enters online sweepstakes,” but said she was drawn to “Mingle with The Masters” and a chance to win access inside the world of high cuisine, fashion or art.
Presented by Lincoln Motor Company and the all-new 2013 Lincoln MKZ, Jenna found the sweepstakes right here on JustLuxe who powered the sweepstakes.
“In complete shock,” she got to mingle a few weeks later with JustLuxe’s managing editor, who called to announce her winnings and offer Jenna three prize options.
JustLuxe awarded Jenna with two roundtrip airfare tickets to Los Angeles during Fashion Week, a fabulous hotel suite overlooking the Sunset Strip, on-demand access to black car service, a $500 La Prairie spa treatment, a $250 pre-paid credit card for dining, and a $1,000 pre-paid credit card for shopping. In order to provide Jenna with a truly unforgettable experience, JustLuxe turned to the masters of fashion in LA, Project Ethos.
Shortly after arriving, Jenna was whisked off to de-stress from the long flight at The Beverly Hills Hotel Spa. A $500 credit availed a 90-minute Swedish deep tissue massage and a 60-minute facial by La Prairie.
“Oh my gosh it was amazing and such an escape!”

The curious couple took an evening to explore LA, where they tried Korean BBQ for the first time at a Koreatown favorite, Road to Seoul.
The following morning Jenna and Don called for their car service, which brought them to celebrity wardrobe stylist, Josh Canady.
Canady led Jenna from shop to shop pulling from Zara, H&M and Macy’s to complete a killer outfit that incorporated a leather peplum mini and spring’s hottest color, canary yellow.

And because no look is complete without a hair and makeup team, Jenna returned to her room to find LA-based, Naomi Marin, setting up her Mac makeup table. Hair designers Randy Madden and Kristen Urlacher from Sessions Salon Studio were also present, prepping for a trendy updo.
“I can’t believe this is happening to me,” a giddy Jenna was overheard saying, as her hair was tousled and Naomi brushed her cheek with a finishing shimmer.
Jenna's Prize Included:
$1,000 shopping spree with LA stylist
$500 La Prairie spa treatment
VIP seating at Project Ethos runway event
Three nights at the Andaz West Hollywood
Hollywood makeover (hair & makeup)
"My hair still looked good the morning after!"
- Jenna Petardi
Known for combining runway shows, live concerts and an art gallery under one roof since 2005, Project Ethos provided Jenna and Don with VIP runway seating, as well as access to its arsenal of local fashion and beauty experts.
After the fun makeover party in their hotel room with the creative and upbeat Project Ethos team, Jenna and Don were escorted to Avalon Nightclub in the heart of Hollywood for red carpet arrivals at the fashion event of the week.
“We had an amazing view of the show and my most favorite part was the encore fashion show from designers T. Rain and Andrew Christian,” said Jenna.
“I had such a blast working with JustLuxe and everyone and getting pampered…I felt beautiful and extremely lucky. I want to move here!”
Hollywood welcomes you back anytime, Jenna!
