Hollywood Hot Shot Hibiscus rosa-sinensis '8117-8’ PP28474

HOT SHOT is pure luxury. Oak bars and whiskey, neat. Custom velvet suits and pressed shirts with gold cufflinks. Everyone’s eyes are on him, but he only has eyes for LEADING LADY. Man of the year? This guy fits the bill. Whether he’s hitting the links or presiding over a back room Hollywood merger, he’s calm, cool, and collected. That is, unless, he’s on the dance floor at one of Hollywood’s legendary after parties, in which case he’s usually challenging DISCO DIVA to a dance off.

You might be a HOT SHOT if:

  • You dress to impress.
  • You’re always the center of attention.
  • You’re kind of a shark at work.
