Fashionable Fête

| April 27, 2011 | Parties National

The Party: John Varvatos and Jillian and Patrick Dempsey co-hosted a star-studded benefit and outdoor concert at Varvatos’ West Hollywood boutique, raising $500,000 to benefit the Rape Treatment Center’s Stuart House, serving the needs of sexually abused children. The Players: Brooke Burke, Zoe Saldana, KaDee Strickland, Kevin McKidd, LL Cool J, Linda and Bob Gersh, J.K. Simmons, Justin Chambers, Damien Fahey, Taylor Armstrong, Alberta Cross, Sam Page, Daniel Sunjata. The Highlights: A who’s who of Hollywood gathered for an afternoon of live and silent auctions, food, festivities, music and children’s activities, including a Build-A-Bear Workshop and a station for personalizing children’s Converse high-tops. Musicians Franky Perez and k.d. lang and the Siss Boom Bang revved up the audience outdoors while Shepard Fairey kept the music pumping with a DJ set in the Varvatos boutique. A ripple went through the crowd when Billy Idol roared up on his motorcycle to say hello to pals Perry Farrell, photographer Mick Rock (who donated his services to the event, with proceeds going to the charity), and of course, John Varvatos.
