Admit it. You’ve probably practiced your acceptance speech in the mirror only… oh, 500 times. And now you’re just waiting to get nominated. And be the star of a highly-rated TV show (small little detail). But here’s the secret: Emmy Week isn’t only about the televised Award Show.
Each year, celebs flock to LA’s biggest and splashiest luxury lounges. And Doris Bergman’s lounge, held at celebrity mainstay Fig & Olive, is always one of the most sought after events and celebrates the industry’s Emmy-nominated actors, presenters, stylists and industry VIP’s.
Hosted by BUYWINE.COM (beloved for their curated wines from around the globe as well as their wine academy) and presented by Precious Vodka & PRSVR, the lounge showcased an impressive array of fashion for men and women, including costume gowns by Sue Wong, casual wear, yummy treats by popcorn king Popcornopolis and plant-based mini meals from Beviva Foods (purple potatoes are the star of their snacks!)
Guests flocked to Lula Roe to check out the adorable leggings, shawls and funky tee shirts in all different shapes and sizes. The Utah-based designer of Twisted Silver impressed all with her edgy metal jewelry style. And for a taste of something especially sweet, attendees brought home jars of True Gold Honey, created by a mother and son team and appealingly described on their website as “liquid sunshine.” The flavors of their California-grown honey include Avocado and their award-wining Wild Buckwheat. And how better to toast to all the nominees that with a glass of the world-class wines of host BUYWINE.COM. One of the wines they featured at the event was from hope & grace, a small batch winery with a tasting room in Yountville.
Over a Fig & Olive lunch, guests were also treated to the musical serenadings of the B2wins–charismatic twin brothers from Rio who deliver unforgettable performances on violin and ukuele.
Those spotted at this year’s event included former Oscar nominee Eric Roberts, Marilu Henner, Emmy nominee Glynn Turman (How to Get Away With Murder), former Oscar nominee Edward James Olmos, Grammy Winning Bonnie and Anita Pointer (The Pointer Sisters), Rebecca Metz (Better Things), former Emmy winner Patrika Darbo, former Emmy winner Kim Estes, soap opera stars Tristan Rogers and Deidre Hall, Makenzie Moss (the Unicorn), LA Laker Norman Nixon, John Brotherton (Fuller House), Danielle Nicolette (The Flash) and more.
