Boston, MA (PR Web) May 16, 2008 – Celebrities may live in a different world than the rest of us on a day to day basis, but there’s one great equalizer – travel. When it comes to travel, celebrities tote their own carry-ons, struggle to carry their laptops, and bumble at the security conveyor, too.
That’s why some of entertainment’s top funnymen and fashionistas flocked to Go GaGa’s Slide Bag during this week’s Boom Boom Room event in NYC. Constance Zimmer of Entourage, Lyndsey Rodriguez of MTV, and Milena Govich of Law and Order were among the celebrities who visited the gifting suite in one of Chelsea’s hottest studios.
Zack Levi of NBC’s Chuck raved about the bag’s ergonomic strap and hip, urban design, “This is a great bag!” he said as he checked out the earthy copper and olive colored totes. Comedians Chuck Nice and Doug Benson of VH1’s Best Week Ever couldn’t wait to try The Slide for their next trip. Doug Benson said, “This will be perfect for carrying my laptop when I travel – it’s the best bag I’ve seen!” As a Mom and fashion icon, Emme appreciated the bag’s features including stroller straps that can be used to carry a yoga mat, or a changing pad that can also provide protection for a laptop. “This is wonderful! There are so many terrific features - I want to hear about each one.” She also loved the fact that The Slide offers both comfort and style, “You don’t have to compromise!” she exclaimed as she tested the ergonomic strap. Jill Zarin of Bravo’s Real Housewives of New York City couldn’t wait to take a Slide for her grandson who was being born that day. “This is an incredible bag for parents in the city! They’ll be able to carry everything they need,” she said as she modeled a black Slide.
But the Slide isn’t just for looks or light use – it’s a durable bag that holds up under even the toughest of conditions – like the set of Survivor. At the Golden Globes’ Boom Boom Room event in LA, the survival show’s producer and set designer couldn’t wait to take the Slide with them to Micronesia. “When we’re filming, we have to carry everything that we need for the day with us. Plus, we’re right there with the contestants – in the mud, water, heat – so whatever bag we carry has to endure some pretty tough treatment. This bag can handle it!” Joel Anderson of Survivor’s Fans vs. Favorites couldn’t wait to start using the bag. “I’m going to take this everywhere – it’s got a spot for everything I need and can take some tough use.”
Comfort, durability and thoughtful design are at the heart of the new line, which launched in September 2007. “When you’re traveling, what you need to carry changes from one day to the next,” said Jill Cartwright, founder of Go GaGa
. “So, we created a versatile bag that could fit everything from a 14” laptop, to a change of clothes, to books and food for the flight.”
The Slide’s travel-friendly features include:
- An ergonomically safe strap made of stretch nylon that distributes the weight of the bag across your back and shoulders
- Insulated side pockets that will keep large Nalgene bottles cold, protect camera lenses, or hold sunglasses for easy access
- Front and back exterior pockets for easy access to travel documents, maps, keys, or cell phone
- Reinforced foam base that keeps the bag upright when placed on a flat surface
- Moveable interior divider that gives organization and structure when you need it and moves to one side if you don’t
So, when looking for the perfect laptop bag or carry-on, don’t go crazy – Go GaGa.

Bag’s style, comfort and quality make it easier for Dads to shoulder the load.
Boston, MA (PR Web) May 1, 2008 – It is Dad’s biggest fear – not dirty diapers or a 2 am feeding – it’s carrying the dainty diaper bag in public. He’ll carry the stroller, the car seat, and even the dog – anything to avoid carrying an overstuffed pink frilly bag that keeps sliding off his shoulder.
Go GaGa has solved the problem with its line of ergonomically safe and stylish diaper bags which make the perfect Father’s Day gift for a Dad on the go. In fact, Kids Today Magazine and Baby & Kids both named Go GaGa’s Slide as one of the top bags for diapering dads, noting that its non-descript style and smart features make it the perfect gift for Dads who want to steer clear of frills and fluff.
Since what any Dad carries changes from one day to the next, Go GaGa
designed the bag to fit just about anything, from a 14” laptop, to diapers and toys, to a change of clothes for a workout at the gym. “Dads have to be prepared for anything, so we wanted to give them one bag that can meet most of their needs,” said Jill Cartwright, founder of Go GaGa.
What really differentiates the Slide from other bags on the market is a patented strap that spreads the weight across Dad’s back and shoulders. If he wants a more traditional messenger bag look and feel, he can slide the shoulder pad to the top of the strap, which cinches the strap and also gives him easy access to his cell phone or iPod.
The Slide’s sleek style, versatility, and quality have made it a hit with Hollywood’s coolest celebrity Dads.
- At a Golden Globes pre-event for celebrity parents, Chris Noth, Dean McDermott and Dave Kushner of Velvet Revolver all took home the Slide for their upcoming diaper duty.
- Kevin Weisman of October Road and Alias, raved about the bag’s modern design because it wasn’t flowery or feminine. “Finally – something for me!” he exclaimed as he slipped the bag’s strap over his head.
- Joshua Malina of West Wing praised the bag’s features, including stroller straps that can be used to carry a yoga mat, or a changing pad that can also provide protection for a laptop. “What a great bag! There’s a lot of thought that went into it.”
- Because he spends so much time on the road, Dave Kushner appreciated the bag’s comfort and versatility. As he reached for a red Slide, Dave said, “What a cool bag – I ‘m going to use it to carry my laptop until the baby comes.”
Celebrity Moms echoed the Dads’ enthusiasm, hoping that Dads will be willing to help if they have a bag that’s comfortable and suits their personal style.
- Yasmin Frazier, wife of Fox Sports and ET Correspondent Kevin Frazier, believes that the Slide will encourage Dads to lend a hand with diaper duty. She said, “Dads need get into the mix - this bag will help them do that.”
So, when looking for a Father’s Day gift, don’t go crazy – Go GaGa.
