Beauty and fashion lounges are as tied to awards shows as red carpets and rented jewelry. From the Grammys to the Golden Globes to the Oscars, big-name brands like to set up shop near their celebrity clients, whether that be behind-the-scenes at the actual show venues or in suites at the city's top hotels.

This year, Barneys got in on the action with a totally chic weekend setup at the Beverly Hills Hotel. The luxury department store took over one of the hotel's iconic bungalows, filling it with lavish gowns, jewels, shoes and bags. They also brought their own beauty station, manned by Barneys' resident makeup artist Patrick Foley, and eyelash bar by Kre-at Beauty.

Designers featured included couture from Céline, Givenchy and Lanvin; baubles by Jennifer Meyer and Monique Péan; and show-stopping heels by Christian Louboutin, Azzedine Alaïa and Saint Laurent—all of which could be purchased on the spot. See the dazzling array in our gallery, above.
