Sonya Dakar-Adwil Oscar Lounge 411! WIN a FAB OSCAR Goody Bag PACKED With Great Swag Courtesy of Sonya Dakar-Adwil Oscar Lounge!! LA STORY BLOG !!

While the movie and television awards season is pretty much over, the details of the different suites will keep rolling out for the next couple weeks as I give you  the 411 on the suites and also some podcasts with key people/suites I stopped at along "road to the red carpet".

One of the most popular suites around town–particularly with the ladies–was the Sonya Dakar-Adwill Oscar Lounge.

The  product lounges were filled to overflowing with brands who participated– giving great gifts to both celebs and stylists.  While there, many participated in getting ready for the big Oscar event with facials, massages, pedicures, manicures and other luxe treatments. Stylist/costume designer Barbara Palmer (she’s  worked a slew of movies, tv shows and styled celebs like Faye Dunaway, Wendie Malick and  even musicians like "eye candy"  Lifehouse’s Bryce Soderburg  -who attended Oscar parties) attended the Sonya Dakar-Adwil Oscar Lounge and said it was absolutely fabulous. Surrounded by celebs who were thrilled to see great brands participating in the lounge, it was definitely a "not to miss" experience. Even guys were there partaking in all the great treatments– like  really luxe shaving experiences.


While celebs and stylists walked off with bags of swag, Fashiontribes and LA Story haven’t forgotten you. We know that all of you out there would love to experience the bliss of an "celebrity suite" or "awards lounge". Sonya Dakar -Adwil Oscar Lounge has offered ONE LUCKY PERSON a chance to win a gift bag worth over $2500.00!!
