Jennifer Aniston on Vodka Diet

January 21st, 2010 Kiki Kalor Posted in News 4 Comments »

If you’re wondering why Jennifer Aniston has such a slim body, it could be because she drinks vodka.

She was interviewed this week by Chelsea Handler on the E! Network talk show, “Chelsea Lately.” Chelsea and Jennifer discovered they both like and drink vodka. Chelsea asks  “I want to know what you drink to keep your body like that because what I’m drinking is not working.” Jennifer exclaimed that vodka  is her drink of choice. “That’s what I drink… It’s a clear liqueur, yes, you know, no sugar.”

Another celebrity, photographer Ryan McGinley talks about his vodka diet. Reported in the New York Diet, the weekly article in the New York Magazine Ryan said “For dinner, at 8 p.m. I had cupcakes from Babycakes at Michael Stipe’s new apartment. It was a pre-housewarming, pre-curtains-on-the-windows party; he hadn’t been in town for three months. We drank coconut water and vodka…That was sort of dinner-ish.”

Actress Sienna Miller went on a vodka diet to lose weight to play Edie Sedgwick, the drug-addicted “IT” girl of the 1960s and Andy Warhol’s muse in the movie “Factory Girl.” Sienna didn’t want to starve herself to get down to a size O, so she went on a vodka diet and the extra weight burned off. Instead of drinking a glass of wine with her meal, Sienna had a shot of vodka which worked for her.

Lindsay Lohan has also been known to go on a vodka diet. She likes it mixed with a diet soda. Stay tuned for more on the vodka diet, ISVodka is vodka and other uses for vodka…

The drinks looked beautiful served in large martini glasses with mint and cranberry garnishes. Everyone enjoyed them during the cocktail hour and in Vegas style, guests brought their lovely martinis with them to watch the fashion show. As with every ISVodka event, guests comment on the “smooth” taste of ISVodka and the stunning ISVodka bottle. And of course they are interested in finding out “where to buy” ISVodka. Distributed by VGS International, ISVodka is currently sold in California, Nevada and New York.

The Fashion Show Mall is one of the largest malls in the U.S. It is designed with shops and restaurants on 3 floors plus spectacular fashion shows in the Grand Hall on the first floor. To signal the start of the fashion show, a long runway rises out of the floor 3.5 feet high, white smoke crawls along the runway changing colors from the bright lights overhead, the beating music starts and out of nowhere the models start filing out one by one with their swanky walk and latest fashion.
