In celebration of this Sunday’s 91st Academy Awards, Hollywood went all out this year with a bevy of parties and gifting suites to get celebs excited for the show that was to come.
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.
Oscar Week has been in full swing. Distinctive Assets has once again helped get the excitement rolling for Oscar® nominees with its annual “Everyone Wins” Nominee Gift Bags which have become the most buzzed about swag in history.
It’s true. It really IS an honor just to be nominated. But it’s also an enormous amount of fun.
In celebration of this Sunday’s 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, Los Angeles is revving up for one of its biggest, most glamorous events of the year, applauding some of television’s best and brightest. But before (and after) the big show, come all the parties.
And one of the must-see events each season is Kari Feinstein’s Style Lounge . Held this year at the Andaz Hotel on Sunset Blvd, the star-studded event attracted major star-wattage, including Key & Peele’s Keegan-Michael Key; Curb Your Enthusiasm’s Cheryl Hines; Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent; Shameless stars Shanola Hampton and Cameron Monaghan; and Peter Facinelli, star of Nurse Jackie, Twilight and Can’t Hardly Wait.
With the event sponsored by Ocean Spray, celebs were immediately greeted by cranberry-inspired mocktails and the chance to play in a cranberry bog right here in sunny Los Angeles.
Kelly Baker Brows, a perennial favorite of celebrities, offered brow waxes to all guests during the event to keep everyone looking posh and polished. Her product is a favorite among professionals and beauty lovers everywhere.
Even though we’re heading into the Fall and Winter seasons, it’s always beach season in California and Samba Sol offers cute designs for their sustainable flip flops—all of which are made from recycled Brazilian rubber.
Fashionistas scooped up quirky, boho-chic pieces from Swedish retailer Odd Molly, as well as versatile bags from Lavender and Canvas, which were created by a mother-daughter team. Jewelry line Belladaar, handmade in Los Angeles, offered glitzy necklaces and earrings. And Re;CODE was also on hand to showcase their upcycling clothes from South Korea, with Mane n Tail offering their renowned line of hair care.
And to keep guests refreshed on the go, Aladdin gave guests sustainably sourced reusable water bottles, which were both BPA safe and featured pretty designs. Attendees were also happy to try Pinner Test, a food intolerance test designed to advise which foods users might be intolerant to.
And for after the Emmy week craziness, Swanky Resorts magazine was on hand to entice the celebs with dreams of getaways at Moon Palace Jamaica.
