Gifts of luxury, "bling," and class were all the rage at the official Gift Lounge of the 2014 Independent Spirit Awards, in Santa Monica. As stars shone on and off stage, they indulged in the creamy richness of Breyers' Gelato Indulgence; and sipped and savored Dark Horse wine. Enjoying these sweet treats were Cate Blanchett; Sally Hawkins; Rosario Dawson; Miles Teller; Elisabeth Rohm; Angela Bassett; and Jeremy Renner. The gelato comes in four indulgent varieties: vanilla caramel; raspberry cheesecake; tiramisu; and triple chocolate. The perfect splurge for a sunny day at the beach, pre or post awards ceremony.
Another popular booth featured New Balance's Fresh Foam 980's and was frequented by Jane Lynch, Alex Karpovsky, and Will Forte. The shoes will ensure that the celebs look sporty and stylish on and off the set!
Spotted at the Sabra Grab & Go Hummus booth were Andrew Dice Clay; Jane Lynch; and Alex Karpovsky. These single serve cups give a quick burst of Mediterranean flavor either at home or on the go.
Jeremy Renner marveled at Tivo's Roamio Plus, while Seth Meyer's new bandleader Fred Armisen and Miles Teller took selfies with the new DJI Phantom 2 Vision Flying Camera. DJI's mission is to "empower creative minds with the tools necessary to share their wildest dreams imaginable."
Elisabeth Rohm was pleasantly surprised with dream gifts of a Manito silk pillow and travel eye mask; Tibolli hair care, and Murad skin care, while Angela Bassett delighted in a gold python clutch by Carlos Falchi couture; and lingerie from Fashion Forms.
The Independent Spirit Awards is always, in true form, in a class of its own, along with its gift lounge, worthy of gold medal prestige and luxury.
