For the ninth year, Hollywood hostpot, Fig & Olive was home to Doris Bergman’s Valentine Romance Oscar Lounge! Taking place just after Valentine’s Day and just before the Academy Awards, the event is one of our favorite gifting suites and parties.Over 100 of Hollywood’s finest turned out to celebrate and honor the film industry’s Oscar nominated actors, as well asformer Oscar winners, presenters, stylists and industry VIPS.
This year’s event was hosted by BUYWINE.COM, an online resource that helps match consumers to the wine brands and wineries they might like…and who doesn’t like wine!
The event also featured an array of fashion for him and her including couture gowns, bespoke tuxedos & suits! We love the blue tie and pocket square we took home from Art Lewin. Another favorite was the gold chain “muscle necklace” we were gifted from Twisted Silver.
Food & Beverage
Our FAV refreshments included Rekorderlig Cider which we were pleased to learn is available at Bevmo and Spa Girl Vodka, especially the pear martini flavor! We also enjoyed the tasty cupcakes and cookies from local Zozo Bean Bakery.
Skincare / Beauty
The gift boxes by Dr. Perricone (containing Cold Plasma, Cold Plasma Eye, Cold Plasma Sun-D, The Essential Multivitamin, Super Greens and H2 Elemental Energy ) were the perfect item to renew our skin post awards season! Dr. Perricone also gifted VIP Gifts to celebrity attendees! The PURA D’Or organic haircare line was also just the treat to restore damaged hair from week’s of red carpet styling.
The event also featured its annual charity ‘Wednesday’s Child,’ which highlights ‘harder to place’ children in the LA County foster care system who are in need of adoptive families. In the spirit of giving back, guests & sponsors donated unwrapped gifts for young adults (ages 13-18.)
