A Celebration of Beauty is designed to celebrate the intelligence, strength, courage and determination of women and girls, and the dynamic beauty professionals who inspire our community. It is the first premier, star-studded charity expo of its kind in Connecticut — an extravagant, deserving, fun-filled celebration, complete with everything women need to celebrate their beauty — celebrities, shopping, pampering, inspiration, live entertainment, networking, and of course, glam.
