As the Oscars cranked up the heat in Los Angeles, emails were landed into various inboxes about a wide variety of events going on in town. While there were tons of evening events -dinners, premieres, cocktail parties and such filled with tons of celebs across LA,there are also daytime events that are highly coveted. The suites –heavy on vendors and celebs — display hot brands and emerging products (also known as SWAG) that are gifted to gain traction from the celebrity crush and media blitz. Thus it’s very likely to get the actual product bag/package photographed by paparazzi. Or if a brand is really lucky, the product is worn or consumed by said celebrity and caught on camera. As it was with the latest Oscar suite from Doris Bergman!
On February 23, 2017, there was one spot in LA that was really hot– and it was Fig & Olive on Melrose Place. It was getting hot (on that sunny, wonderfully dry day): hot with people, great food, tasty sips and lots of hot, haute products. The reason for all these celebs and brands? Bergman’s Style Lounge and Party to honor the 89th Academy Awards the following Sunday.
Over 100 of Hollywood’s finest turned out to celebrate and honor the film industry’s Oscar® Nominated actors, former Oscar® winners, presenters, stylists and industry VIPS.

In the spirit of giving back, guests & sponsors donated unwrapped gifts for young adults (ages 13-18) for a Post-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. “In Los Angeles County, alone, there are over 35,000 children receiving child welfare services,” says social worker, Professor William Wong. Bergman always invites 2 foster children to join in on the festivities and experience what it feels like to be treated as a VIP. http://www.foxla.com/wednesdays-child

This event was fabulous! I had a great time meeting people from Dr. Perricone’s team that I had met a few months ago. Such a great time and I got to see the actual products that I learned about at the Perricone MD luncheon I attended.
