This past weekend, some of the biggest names in television were in L.A. for the 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards Ceremony, and Foster Grant, the iconic Hollywood sunglasses brand, was at the GBK Emmy Luxury Gift Lounge where celebs were spotted trying on the latest trends. Top celebrity favorites were the retro wayfarers and aviators. FUN!
For every pair gifted to a celebrity, one pair was donated to charity, which is always nice to hear!
A few celebrities that stopped by the lounge included:
No surprise, Bruno Tonioli the judge of ABC’s nominated show Dancing with the Stars was dipping and dancing with attendees in front of the Foster Grant table. He wanted a pair of shades that made him look “mysterious” – possibly to go incognito when DWTS Chelsie Hightower, Tony Dovolani, Karina Smirnoff stopped by later?
· Anthony Anderson of NBC’s new sitcom Guys with Kids picked up a pair of white plastic aviators, calling them his “Cee-Lo shades.”
