Another stop on the endless pre-Oscar
swagfest is the Diamond Lounge 2006
which will be
held at the Peterson Automotive museum on March 3 and 4. The lounge features jewelry from Giorgio Visconti and
Boucheron Paris, Energetix rhinestone-studded magnet therapy bracelets, Fileena handmade jewelry (shown here), Pink
Moon New York handbags and Ting Bling gadget bedazzling service.There will be a spa area that features 24K gold nail
polish from Varnish, DermaNew, an at home micro-dermabrasion kit, a lip gloss bar from Lucy B Cosmetics, airbrush
tanning from SunFx, and Xtreme Lashes semi-permanent eyelash extensions. The clothing available will include Von Dutch
(is this stuff still popular?) and a new clothing line created by singer Macy Gray. Gray will show up to dress the
celebs. Not quite as luxe as the Lauder
but free stuff is still free stuff.
Nathalie Dubois and DPA, the hosts of the events, have
chosen to spread out the swag love choosing two non-celebs, Pedro Garcia, a soldier wounded by an enemy grenade in
November 2005 and Kelly Bolor, a widow whose husband was killed in a downed Black Hawk Helicopter in 2003 to enjoy the
gift suites as well.
