[JB note - Forget "soft power" (a form of "public diplomacy, or maybe vice versa). Hey, so how about an Under Secretary of State for Soft Sensuality? (USSS? - of course no connection to the USSR) :).]

“We’re fortunate in that we have the greatest celebrity in the world, which is the president-elect; side-by-side is the current president,” Barrack said.
“So what we’ve done instead of trying to surround him with what people consider A-listers, is we are going to surround him with the soft sensuality of the place. It’s a much more poetic cadence than having a circus-like celebration that’s a coronation.”
