It’s Emmy time again, and along with the awards, it’s party time. A favorite of the Hollywood stars, celebs and VIPs is always Doris Bergman’s Emmy Style Lounge and Party, held at the Fig and Olive restaurant. This year’s sensational event was held on Thursday, September 14th, hosted by Buywine.com and presented by Skinside Drinkable Collagen.
Guests enjoyed a delectable lunch and were treated to gifts galore, including gowns and dresses for her, bespoke suits for him, beauty products and cosmetics, luggage, chic watches, fabulous fragrances, unique beverages and spirits, luscious sweets and pawsitively precious presents for their pampered pooches.
We didn’t see any doggies there, but bow-wow-wow, will they be excited when their mommies and daddies return home! That’s because guests were gifted with a gorgeous canvas bag, covered with pawprints, and filled with all kinds of pet goodies. Christy Araron, owner of CJ’s Pet Staycation and Pampered Pets Playhouse packed the case with pet toys, bowls, a beach towel, training pads, and human grade, bone-shaped, waffle-like treats in a box labeled, Lovin’ from the Oven. She also included a certificate for a complimentary 2-night staycation for the tail-waggers in the family.
The celebs and guests were thrilled with all the gifts for humans, too! There were baubles, bangles and beads for every woman to enjoy. We loved the jewelry from Twisted Silver. Founder and designer Debra Mitchell uses earthy base metals, recycled, found objects, and vintage asymmetry to create an edgy, trend-setting line that is sure to garner compliments wherever you go.
Jeanne Vixen Jewelry featured a prosperity ring, which I put on immediately, since I love the style and meaning behind it. She also showed necklaces and earrings with some of her favorite materials being Sterling silver, GoldFilled, leather, Vegan leather, Chalcedony, Labradorite, Citrine, Amber, Selenite, Moonstones, and Celestite. Jeanne is a skilled artisan who has been making jewelry since 1990.
Amy D’Ambra and Christine Rich presented their My Saint My Hero jewelry line, which includes signature Benedictine Blessing Bracelets, along with necklaces, earrings and sacramental pieces. Their lovely and special Wearable Blessings serve as constant reminders of purpose, hope and inspiration.
The incredible and beautiful Sue Wong greeted guests, showing some of her amazing gowns, as well as her fragrances. Beauty, Magic, and Transformation are three of her eau de parfums that come in stunning bottles you’ll want to display in your vanity area.
For less formal wear, the female celebs were stopping by Single Dress and Kaya Di Koko to get chic and trendy dresses and tops in awesome colors and prints. Sooooo hot and soooo cool with sexy necklines, hemlines, and overall lines to make women look oh-so-fine.
As for the men, you simply can’t get more elegant than with Art Lewin. He’ll suit you up in the finest Bespoke Tailored Suits and Shirts that are distinctive and distinguished.

Olympia luggage was a big hit with guests, who had their choice of fabulous bags in blue, pink or red.
Chef Elliot added some sweets for the suite, with oh-so-delicious red velvet mini-bundt cakes with cream cheese icing flavored with bourbon. Spirits included Spa Girl vodka martinis with cucumber or pear flavors, or for the non-alcoholic taste, Hint offered waters with various fruit flavors.
