Cliché: the red carpet treatment

(entered for 03.17.06) (Happy St. Patrick's Day!)

Meaning: extra special treatment. Use examples.
Rewrite 1: greeted with splendor and
Rewrite 2: celebrated and pampered2a with star-struck devotion
Rewrite 3: treatment
renowned for its flourishesn2
Rewrite 4: adored and pampered like royalty

Comment: I was looking for a structure like the original. What is like “red carpet” that upon seeing it immediately says special treatment?
