Lights, cameras, action—during Oscar Week, Los Angeles is a frenzy of pre-Oscar planning and parties for the town’s biggest celebrities and trendsetters. And while there are never a shortage of soirees to attend, there are a few that always make the list.
Kari Feinstein’s Style Lounge, always a celeb favorite, continued to shine brightly by matching the biggest talent with the hottest brands. Held at the chic Andaz Hotel on Sunset Blvd over two days, the lounge welcomed guests with an array of brands, from stylish lingerie and footwear to Jamaican dream vacations and even Napa Valley wineries and Vegas must-haves.
Twilight and Guards of the Tomb star (and newlywed) Kellan Lutz played Prince Charming to his lovely wife as they visited Samba Sol and tried on cute flip-flops for California beach days.
Guests were intoxicated by the aromatic scents brought by Votivo. Known all over the world for their fragrant candles, diffusers, soaps and hand creams, Votivo is a perennial fave and carried by luxury retailers as well as numerous beauty stores.
With their senses already awakened, stars got a little extra cheeky checking out Maidenform lingerie and many, including actress AnnaLynn McCord (90210, Nip/Tuck, Dallas) signed their board.
BMG artist & songwriter Carly Robyn Green, whose songs have been featured in 150 TV shows like Scandal and 30 Rock, met with pioneering skincare line BABOR. The beloved brand invited stars to test their products—proving that while the Oscars may be all about fashion, beautiful skincare is always a must for the well-dressed set.
Stars were also immediately enticed by the luxury resort Moon Palace Jamaica, featured in Swanky Resorts magazine. Summer vacation is just a few months away and it is never too early to start planning!
Throughout the event, stars and influencers nibbled on the oh-so-yummy and Insta-friendly Pinkbox Doughnuts. They were a huge hit with Grown-ish star Yara Shahidi, who playfully posed with the delicious treats. Honig Wines was on hand to introduce the LA set to their incredible Napa Valley winery and offer wine tastings throughout the day—red or white, perfect for either palate!
And pet-lovers, such as Twilight’s Ashley Greene, went crazy over Petcube’s interactive pet camera to feed their pets when they’re hungry.
Other brands that were showcase included Hoka One, Alina Z and Mane &Tail. Other celebs in attendance included David Alan Grier, Ming-Na Wen, Sex and the City’s Gilles Marini, model Nina Agdal, and Glee’s Jenna Ushkowitz—along with stars from Oscar-nominated films, such as Roman J. Israel’s Hugo Armstrong and Shape of Water’s John Kapelos.
