Hollywood gets a taste of Dominican Republic

Los Angeles.– Celebrities and VIPs in attendance entered to win free airfare for two  to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic and received a taste of lavish gift  bags highlighting Dominican Republic’s coveted Arturo Fuentes cigars and Godiva’s rich Santo Domingo chocolate.

Dominican Republic is known as  the breadbasket of the Caribbean since its fertile valleys produce some  of the world’s best sugar, tobacco and cocoa, which is then developed  into uniquely flavorful Dominican rum, cigars and chocolate.

“Dominican Republic is becoming a major presence in Hollywood with a  newly inaugurated Dominican Republic Film Commission office in Los  Angeles and many new incentives for producers to film in our magnificent country. Because many Dominican celebrities call the Los Angeles area  their second home, we are especially pleased to share the tastes and  styles of our large island nation at the Academy Awards Gifting Suite,”  said Magaly Toribio, Vice Minister of International Promotion, Dominican Republic Ministry of Tourism.

Dominican-born designer Lucia Rodriguez was at the Celebrity Lounge  event styling celebrities with her stunning, yet delicate gowns.  Rodriguez’s delightfully Dominican-inspired designs are high-quality  finesse, made to perfection – a stunning combination for any leading  lady’s award-winning ensemble.

In 2011, the Dominican government announced the new, state-of-the-art Pinewood Indomina Studios, which will further  enhance the growth in film and TV production in the country.

The Red Carpet Celebrity Style Lounge was held in honor of the 84th  Annual Academy Awards, Hollywood’s celebration of the biggest names in  the film industry hosted by the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts  and Sciences (AMPAS). Nominees, celebrities, press and more attended the event, which raised money for The Humane Society of the United States.
