Sarah Palin partakes in Oscar gift suite


Sarah Palin showed up at a Hollywood gift suite with two daughters, her brother and a small entourage in tow and loaded up with free promotional cosmetic and fashion items being given away in connection with Oscar-week festivities.

Lorna Khoo of and other vendors exhibiting their wares at the Silver Spoon gift suite said the former vice presidential candidate snapped up organic soaps, personalized stationery and a designer robe and sandals on her Wednesday visit.

The 46-year-old politician, who was in town to perform a stand-up routine on Jay Leno's "Tonight Show," also picked up under-eye cream and a deep moisturizer from Bloom cosmetics, according to those present.

A message left with Palin's lawyer on Thursday wasn't immediately returned.
