It was a family affair with Eddie Murphy, his lovely former wife Nicole, and daughter Shayne all in the house to celebrate Eddie’s little girl, Bria Murphy‘s new role as the Brand Ambassador for Soft Sheen/Carson Dark and Lovely!
“I grew up using Dark and Lovely products and I am so proud to be part of a brand that celebrates the diversity of African American women and inspires them to be self-confident, glamorous and fun,” says Bria Murphy.
To celebrate Bria’s new role, a purple and sparkly themed fete was held at Juliet Supper Club (531 West 21st St b/t 10th and 11th) for a room full of glitteratti including: Nia Long, Bai Ling, and Tyson Beckford. Bria is adorable and seems to have pulled the best features and attributes from both of her parents! Where does the time go? I remember her as a little girl attending the first Shrek premiere! I love that Bria is not just another spoiled celebrity kid and donates a good amount of her time to charity!
On the choice of Bria as Brand Ambassador, Angela Guy, General Manager and Senior Vice President of SoftSheen-Carson, stated, “We are so excited to have Bria Murphy as the new spokesperson for Dark and Lovely as we continue its legacy. Not only is she beautiful, she truly exemplifies the character of the Dark and Lovely brand and will inspire an entire new generation of Dark and Lovely women throughout the world.”
DJ Kiss kept the glamorous crowd on their feet and everyone was sent home with a sparkling silver bag full of Dark and Lovely products.
