Trendspotting Hot New Products at Oscar Suites: Celebs Come Out for Great Swag at Fig + Olive!

With great packaging and interesting bags for these great giftables, it’s possible to get the actual product bag/package seen by paparazzi and other photographers or if a brand is really lucky, the product is worn or consumed by said celebrity and caught on camera. Thus the proliferation of photographers at suites to get snaps of celebrities with their products because it’s good for the product branding and identity!

Long shot of the room with all the vendors!

When a PR Pro like Doris Bergman gets going on her red carpet events, she pulls out all the stops goes for the gold– as in Oscar statues and great products that make celebrities, stylists and media stop to take notice of celebrity cult favorite products as well as new brands coming into the marketplace. What better way to figure out what’s going to be hot for the next year or so then to “shop” through the various vendors participating in this fabulous suite! Two brands were already covered yesterday; now this is the balance of the products!

Begley’s & Bill’s 100% Natural Sodas–Hot new sugar-free natural sodas! Tasty, fun and worth buying if only because it’s all natural- and has only 8 calories!


Nature’s Flavors this is a killer flavor and scent brand. If you need a flavor or scent that is organic or gluten-free or sugar-free or just plain old top quality, check them out!

Ooh La Bra, , a cool line of bra accessories with crystal bra straps along with other styles featuring leather, colored crystals and even diamonds!


Silvana K Designs Incredible jewelry designed by Silvana K in brass and mixed metals!


Handmade Hearts by Hillel. These hearts were hand-crafted for this event. Each uniquely different and there were over a 1000 hearts at this event- and I am sure all were given away.

PK’s Chocolates, a great artisanal line of superb chocolates. How do I know? I had a small box– and it was more than enough. PK’s Chocolates are handmade works of art but ones that you consume!

Poof, These were adorable floral decorations for dogs. I am sure that cats can wear them too but not sure how much a cat would “cooperate” with this!

Simply Eartha, Looking for unusual gifts or something fun to have? Check out Simply Eartha– founded by Eartha Kitt’s daughter! It’s an amazing website/e-commerce spot to land and noodle around to find the perfect gift (even if it’s for yourself!)

Waraire Boswell Executive Men’s Clothiers GREAT line. I have been following Waraire’s career for eons. Love his style. It’s great for men who want a traditional or conservative look with a distinctive edge. This is for those who want great style (note that I didn’t say fashion here. There is a difference) and want to make it reflective of their personality. Boswell is the designer for you!

Platinum Image Services,. This beauty service provides in-home/hotel beauty treatments including gel nails, facials, lashes, waxing and more options that you can think about. They do everything you need where you are – no running around!

La Curcio Skin Care Collection, Amazing skin is what you get from La Curcio’s skincare products. Guests were gifted a 3 piece kit of key products to try with the caveat to apply sparingly and use it daily for great results. They aren’t kidding because a little goes a l-o-n-g way and the results were amazing. I think I need to try the line.

GUESS Watches where there with a selection of amazing watches for men and women in gold, silver and rose-gold.


Twisted Silver, is always a big fan of consumers and celebs. What not to love about great jewelry in a variety of metals? There is jewelry for every women’s personal style.

Single Dress & Single Underwear, Single fashion clothing line is always ahead of the curve and they were gifting celebrities with dresses or tops for Valentine’s Day. Lovely fashions for the fashionably smart women!

Tequila Azul Imperial, The tequila of this pre-Oscars party and a worthy contribution it makes. It sips well as well as mixes into cocktails. The Reposado and Anejo really are sipping material while the Silver is for mixing! Salud!

Veved Ice Vodka, A great vodka that is distilled in an exotic manner by filtering it through diamond dust! Who wouldn’t want to be drinking this super-premium vodka?


Food from Fig & Olive – YUM!
