Press Pass LA was thrilled to return to one of our favorite style lounges of the year- Bergman’s Style Lounge at Fig & Olive restaurant on Melrose Place to honor the 67th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards.
Over 100 of Hollywood’s finest turned out to celebrate and honor the television industry’s Emmy Nominated actors, former Emmy winners, presenters, stylists and industry VIPS. The guest list included actors Khandi Alexander (Outstanding Guest Actress, “Scandal”) and Steven Bauer (“Ray Donovan”)- both pictured- as well as Dot-Marie Jones, Kevin Farley, Eric Martsolf, Kelsey Scott and more. The scene had a red carpet, a delicious lunch and stands from vendors showcasing their most sought after products.
This highly anticipated invitation-only event, hosted by The Auto Gallery and presented by Maserati, featured an incredible array of fashion for him and her including couture gowns, bespoke tuxedos & suits, the finest in beauty, skin & hair care, stunning jewelry collections, gorgeous accessories, beautiful timepieces, fabulous fragrance, fashion-forward footwear, gourmet cuisine, unique spirits, delectable sweets, the Maserati Ghibili AND a bespoke, advanced McLaren 570S Coupe (not yet available to the public) and much more!
Most of the vendors were from local Los Angeles businesses such as Samiah Fine Clothing, Timmy Woods & Handbags, Twisted Silver Jewelry and Single Dress (some of our favorites!) Timmy Woods handbags may have big-time celebrity clients such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Elton John and Diana Ross; however, Timmy shared there’s a more chartable cause to her being at the Style Lounge & Party. “One of the bags will be signed by celebrities because it will be auctioned off for Breast Cancer,” says Woods.
Days of Our Lives actor Eric Martsolf, also a small business owner, explained why events like these are a win-win situation for every one. “I have a ball coming to these events, it helps to get the products out to people that can actually do a lot of good and helping them get their business rolling,” said Martsolf. During the event, the celebrities were interacting with the vendors and taking home some goodies. Overall, it was a fun experience to see how this event brought everyone together.
In the spirit of giving back and supporting the community, guests & sponsors donated unwrapped gifts for young adults (ages 13-18) for a Pre-Holiday Gift Drive benefitting ‘Wednesday’s Child’ — a weekly segment airing on KTTV FOX 11 News, Los Angeles, with Anchor Christine Devine. ‘Wednesday’s Child’ highlights ‘harder to place’ children in the LA County foster care system who are in need of adoptive families. The event always invites two foster children to join in on the festivities and experience what it feels like to be treated as a VIP.
