Rosalina Lydster’s Awards Weekend Gifting and Style Lounge went off without a hitch at a three-day event held at the ultra-chic The District by Hannah An. The invitation-only event showcased and offered luxury brands to celebs and VIPs that included Police Sunglasses, GALLANY Cosmetics, Soaptopia and Jewelry by Rosalina. Hannah An is the recently announced winner of Open Table’s Diners’ Choice Award 2016.

Guests chose from four specialty Oscar-themed cocktails by award-winning mixologist Gerald “G” Limun. Limun’s delicious cocktail creations named The Revenant, The Martian, Mad Max and Spotlight were made with spirits partners Bittercube, Loft & Bear Vodka, and Maestro Dobel Tequila. Fruits and Wine Grapefruit Rose and Strawberry Roses were served to guests as they perused the offering of the lounge and vTrue Radiance Water was also on hand as a low calorie, antioxidant-packed alternative refreshment.

Celebs spotted at the gifting lounge were Entertainment Tonight’s host Carly Steel sporting a pair of fun turquoise eyewear by Police as she chatted about looking forward to the red carpet arrivals this year; “True Blood” and “The Newsroom” actress Adana Porter admiring a bold new lip color by GALLANY Cosmetics. She recently joined the cast of John Legend’s WGN series “Underground.” South Korean table tennis champion and actress, Soo Yeon Lee traded her paddle for square metal-framed sunglasses by Police and rosy Lucite Lips lipgloss by GALLANY Cosmetics.

Actor Eric Roberts stopped in on Thursday with wife Eliza Garrett and picked out matching Police Sunglasses while having libations of Dobel Tequila as “How Do I Look?” host Jennie Mai looked on and tried on a pair of Police aviator-frame sunglasses. Sipping on Loft & Bear Vodka specialty cocktails, actress Alexis Knapp was overheard filling in details of the upcoming “Pitch Perfect 3” movie while she browsed Jewelry by Rosalina. Model/animal rights activist Katie Cleary and Maxim model Abigail Ratchford were spotted sipping on Fruits and Wine Roses as they tried on GALLANY Cosmetics’ lip glosses and blush palates.

“Dancing With The Stars’ dancer Julz Tocker dropped in on Friday, where he rocked a pair of black aviator Police sunglasses and showed a pint-size guest some fancy ballroom moves. He continued to browse the lounge while sipping on Dobel Tequila cocktails, and took home some vTrue Radiance Water and GALLANY cosmetics for his “DWTS” co-stars.
