There’s a little bit of Elle Woods in Chella Levesque’s love of the colour pink, but the PR maven is an industry vet whose long list of VIP clients, past and present, is extremely impressive. As the Managing Director at Chella Levesque Inc., Levesque has become a brand herself in the process of lending her PR savvy to other big name companies. We caught up with Levesque to find out about her life, career and favourite places to enjoy a little downtime in Vancouver.
Give us a snippet about you. What should people know?
I am a dedicated marketer of lifestyle and health and wellness brands. Love everything pink and sparkly and wish I could wear a tiara everyday. Proud new mom to a beautiful baby girl named Elahn.
Finish this sentence: I love Vancouver because…
It’s such a colourful city – from its international flavour to stunning scenery to historic neighbourhoods all located minutes of each other. I love that you can ski and go sailing in the same day!
What are three things you simply cannot live without?
My mother and her unwavering love and support, my fabulous and stylish iPhone and my newborn baby girl.
What’s your favourite restaurant and why?
Blue Water Café + Raw Bar. It’s sexy with a warm and inviting room combined with the best seafood in Vancouver. I highly recommend cozying up to the bar and start with a citrus bomb martini (not on menu) followed by spicy tuna roll sushi and some oysters paired with a glass of bubbly. Perfect spot for dinner with girls, mom or your sexy man. In summer, the patio is the place to be.
What’s your favourite drink and where do you go to get it?
The Mistress: Grey Goose Cherry Noir, Marsala, creme de cacao, fresh lemon juice, Scrappy’s Chocolate Bitters 12 from Hawksworth Restaurant.
Your choice karaoke song is…
“I Think We’re Alone Now” by Tiffany. In grade 6, I dedicated a dance to my boy crush and performed a dance to the entire school. I have always loved an audience!
