LOS ANGELES Award season continues to roll on, with the Screen Actors Guild doling out its honors Saturday night at the Shrine Exposition Center. Following the 20th annual ceremony, People magazine and the Entertainment Industry Foundation drew its annual A-list crowd of nominees and winners for its after-party, a bash that annually glitters with production from Event Eleven.
Lisa Simpson Briel, special projects director for Entertainment Weekly, In Style, and People, worked with Event Eleven’s Tony Schubert on the event, which took its inspiration from a photograph of a Parisian greenhouse. Schubert translated the idea with a modern architectural look and feel, covering four massive bronze arches with lush mood moss to create a dramatic centerpiece to the room. A marine-inspired color palette of blues and greens—which echoed throughout the walls and furniture—was complemented by lattice garden details and white flowers with a vintage aesthetic.
Food came from Wolfgang Puck Catering, with sips from Fiji Water, Taittinger champagne, Heineken, and Matua Wine. Patrón tequila and Ultimat vodka unveiled two specialty cocktails, the “Patrón Award” and the “Ultimat Statue.” Award season’s omnipresent DJ Michelle Pesce spun for the crowd, and guests stopped by for makeup touch-ups from L’Oréal Paris.
Guests left with the event’s well-known and well-stocked gift bag filled with items from the likes of Brownie Brittle, Burt's Bees, GoGo Squeez June Jacobs Spa Collection, LeSportSac, L'Oréal Paris, and Philosophie.
