No Oscar kerfuffle at Hollywood soiree hosted by Grand Duchess of Hospitality by MARGIE BARRON
Leave it to Hollywood’s Grand Duchess of Hospitality, the darling Doris Bergman for putting La La Land’s Oscar-winning songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul in the spotlight before the Oscars were handed out. The “City of Stars” composers were among the stars, VIPs, trendsetters, and media at Bergman’s Style Lounge and Party for awards season. And, unlike this year’s Oscars, her gathering was a kerfuffle-free zone.
The rendezvous place was the Hollywood hotspot Fig & Olive, a yummy restaurant which features gourmet cuisine from the French and Italian Riviera. That made for an elegant event at which Bergman was “anointed” by Bruce Dern in a “that’s sooo Hollywood” moment reported on by Italia Vogue. “She’s got game,” said the two-time Oscar-nominated actor Bruce Dern, about Doris Bergman and her flair for creating a sensational soirée.
