The wonderful West Hollywood restaurant Fig and Olive was filled with celebrities and VIP’s on Thurs, February 18th, 2016 for Doris Bergman’s 8th Annual Valentine Romance Oscar Style Lounge and Party. This highly anticipated event, held to honor the 88th Annual Academy Awards, was hosted by The Auto Gallery and presented by Maserati and The Center for Aesthetic Dentistry.

Whether you like comedy, drama or sci-fi, there were actors and actresses you’d recognize. It was a dramatic moment talking to the phenomenal John Savage who’s acted in over 200 movies and television shows, including “The Deer Hunter,” “Onion Fieldand recently, “Last Call at Murrays.”

Did someone say sci-fi? How about Lou Ferrigno, known for the CBS series “The Incredible Hulk.” He wasn’t green, but gals could’ve turned green with envy as he posed with his gorgeous wife on the red carpet.

Others on the red carpet included Oscar Nominees Brionne Davis (“Embrace of the Serpent” Best Foreign Film), Cas Anvar (“Room” Best Picture), Director Evgeny Afineevsky (“Winter On Fire” Best Documentary), Vanessa Cloke (“Spotlight” Best Picture), and former Oscar Nominee Sally Kirkland, and Golden Globe Nominee Evan Brinkman (“Trainwreck”).


Hollywood gals and guys love bling, and Eva La Rue and Frank Stallone are no exception. They enjoyed perusing the awesome jewelry collection from Twisted Silver.

Cas Anvar who played the doctor in "Room" nominated for Best Picture, took time to visit with Debbi DiMaggio, Realtor to the Stars.  Debbi is the cousin of famed baseball player, Joe DiMaggio - and we think her book, "The Art of Real Estate" will hit a home run.

The Oscars are no laughing matter, but for those who love to laugh, you would’ve loved talking to comedy legend Marilu Henner, known for her starring role in the sit-com Taxi.

Not to mention other comedy pros like Doris Roberts, Judy Tenuta and Ernie Hudson, well known for scaring up a ton of laughs in “Ghostbusters.”  Although they're not for man boobs, we're sure Ernie knows some lovely ladies who will love NuBra.

Let’s not leave out the action, sports and musical genres. Former Golden Globe & Grammy Nominee, Frank Stallone (“Stayin’ Alive”) enjoyed seeing the debonair Art Lewin from Art Lewin bespoke custom tailors.

Speaking of stars, we saw the handsome George Chakiris, Oscar winner for “West Side Story.” At the party, instead of dancing, he was test-driving an oh-so-cool Maserati Ghibli.
