History: Rolling out the Red Carpet was originally created for heads of state to be greeted as they walked down the red carpet, or the crimson path. The red carpets were also placed up steps to a throne or where sacred figures were adorned. Later, the same experience was used to welcome the arrival of World Leaders from their airline jets. In the 1920s, the railroads directed passengers to board the passenger trains as they walked the red carpet. This is where the phrase, “The Red Carpet Treatment” was believed to originate. Starting in the 1920s, the red carpet was used at film premiers for popular actors and actresses to make a grand entrance. It was at this point that the red carpet treatment and Hollywood became synonymous.
