NEW YORK, Feb. 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Meredith Corporation's (NYSE: MDP) InStyle is reimagining its iconic elevator activation for the fifth year, with a virtual spin to celebrate the 78th annual Golden Globe Awards this Sunday. The social media experience, which features a short video of celebrities exiting the InStyle elevator, will be available to watch on Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook. On Sunday, fans can create their own elevator videos using our new custom Instagram filter – #InStyleElevator – to transport viewers into the InStyle elevator/Golden Globes like never before.
"Yes, we've been home for a year, but it doesn't have to feel like it. For the Golden Globes, we're excited to bring the infamous InStyle Elevator to you. Along with a brilliant roster of celebrities and nominees we'll reveal on the night of the event, you can create your own elevator video at home. Don't be subtle: We'll be watching!" said Editor in Chief Laura Brown.
The Art Deco-inspired elevator was designed by Tony and Emmy award-winning designer, Derek McLane. Derek has designed numerous Broadway hit productions, including Moulin Rouge, Beautiful, and 33 Variations, while his television credits include several Academy Award-winning shows. This year's elevator was virtually created in its entirety, pairing the digitally designed and rendered set with the self-taped videos. The brass and steel exterior gives a modern nod to the Art Deco elevators of a previous era.
InStyle is partnering with The Actors Fund to bring awareness to the charity, which provides a safety net for performing arts and entertainment professionals in times of need. Select Instagram posts will include a swipe up link to encourage donations if people are able to contribute.
