Celebrities and entertainment VIPs enjoyed Kari Feinstein’s Style Lounge Presented by LIFX in Los Angeles on Thursday and Friday in celebration of the Oscars. Celebrity guests included Jamie Foxx (“Django Unchained”), Kelsey Scott (“12 Years a Slave”), RJ Mitte (“Breaking Bad”), Felicity Huffman (“Desperate Housewives”), Cheryl Hines (“Curb Your Enthusiam”), Adina Porter (“True Blood”), Jason Ritter (“Gravity Falls”), Penelope Ann Miller (“The Birth of a Nation”), PJ Byrne (“The Wolf of Wall Street”), and many more.
Stars received luxury gifts from Jamba Juice, Essentia Water, Votivo, LIFX, Scarlet and Gold Shop, Ultimate Ears portable stereos, Bioderma, Amanda Blakely Skincare, Neutratone, Honig Winery, and Panache. It was fascinating to see how the LIFX lightbulbs can change colors using an app. The bulbs last for 22 years, and are only $60.
Jamie Foxx literally skipped through the lounge with the daughter of a friend. He was singing and dancing and having the best time with the sponsors. He there a LONG time! He got some lighting from LIFX, Ultimate Ears speakers, skincare from Neutratone and Amanda Blakely, and sipped on Jamba Juice and Essentia Water.
The gorgeous Zendaya (“Shake it Up”) stopped by with her dad on her way catch a flight to NYC to record her new album. When she picked up some candles at Votivo, she and her dad started laughing and joking around about a time when she was a kid and fell asleep with candles lit.
We loved talking to Allison and Chandler at the Scarlet and Gold Shop, who showed us their colorful smartphone cases, prints and t-shirts. The print shop was born from the idea that life is too short not to adorn your walls with pretty things.
Panache was gifting lingerie, swimwear and sports bras with colorful and sexy styles. We saw Penelope Ann Miller (“The Artist”) there, and congratulated her on being part of the huge Sundance Film Festival hit “The Birth of a Nation.”
Bioderma from France was gifting beauty products, including Bioderma Sensibio H2O (also known as Créaline H2O) that is a no-rinse micellar cleanser and makeup remover specially formulated for sensitive, normal to dry skin types.
Lisa Blakely, Co-Founder Ab Skincare, also gifted celebrities with beauty products, including their Mineral Powder. This is a lightweight pressed mineral powder makeup/sun protectant for daily use that is fragrance free and allergen free in three shades — light, medium and dark.
Neutratone gifted a rejuvenating anti-aging skincare kit with a Glycolic Facial Cleanser, Vitamin C Brightener, Ultra Anti-Aging Complex 5 in 1 and Miracle Deep Wrinkle Filler.
Kari Feinstein hosts the best events celebrating all the major entertainment awards, and this gifting experience was another awesome time for all.
Tune in today to see the stars on the red carpet at the 88th Academy Awards ® on ABC at 4pm EST / 7pm PST.
