DPA's Emmy Suite is Sweet

Before their diamonds were strung and their dresses affixed like a glove, Emmy nominees and presenters flocked to a hidden Rodeo Drive rooftop at the Luxe Hotel for an elegant, pre-awards, gifting lounge.

For their seventh year, Nathalie Dubois and DPA were back to the Emmys, offering guests amazing products and fantastic services. Lasting from Sept. 15 – 17, 2011, the gifts landed in the right bags as celebrities took what they could of fashion, electronics and tropical vacations.

Dulcena Lingerie was a favorite for actress Dee Wallace, who picked up a pair of the boutiques panties at a previous Emmy suite two days before. “She pulled her pants down just enough to show me how much she loved them,” said Anel Utajara of Dulcena.

Jason Isaacs, aka 'Lucius Malfoy' of the "Harry Potter" films

Michael K. Williams, who has just joined the cast of NBC's "Community," and also stars in HBO's "Boardwalk Empire"
Other fan favorites were the soy-based candles from Milena’s Boutique, who hoped she brought enough as celebrities tend to come back for thirds; Samsung technology infused air purifier, Virus Zero (see above pics of Beau Bridges, Isaacs and Michael K. Williams with Virus Zero) snagged up and praised by Minnie Driver (‘The Riches’) and Jason Isaacs ("Harry Potter" film series) and the non-leather, Italian crafted handbags and clutches by Jill Milan, carried on this years Emmy red carpet by ‘Glee’ nominee Dot Marie Jones.

While massages were given and cheesecakes were eaten, the three-day event brought awareness to two charities supported by Dubois – Husky Haven of LA, rescue for Siberian huskies and Ring 14 foundation, for children with the rare chromosomal abnormality.

Dubois, a verteran producer of star-studded events worldwide, put on a classy suite with the luxurious views of Beverly Hills serving as the perfect backdrop.
