LOS ANGELES (AP) - When Oscar stars want to escape the camera’s glare, they steal away into the lens-free green room.

Created by interior designer Waldo Fernandez, the Architectural Digest Greenroom is actually decked out in shades of gray.

“It’s soft light, so they will feel comfortable and they will look beautiful,” Fernandez said Thursday. “We wanted to create as calm a palette as possible.”

Just off stage right, the greenroom is decked out in comfy sofas and antique furniture from the 1930s.

“This looks spectacular,” said Academy Awards producer Brian Grazer, who stepped in just before taking a lunch break Thursday. “It’s really comfortable and has a great flow to it. I actually sat in every chair.”

Champagne will be served in the room on Sunday _ an Oscar first. Guests can also log in on numerous laptops left throughout the green room or hide away on a smoking patio for a private puff during the show.

The 84th Academy Awards will be presented Sunday at the Hollywood & Highland Center and broadcast live on ABC.
