THE PARTY A private luncheon at MOCA’s Pacific Design Center to preview pieces from the Elizabeth Taylor Collection, set to be auctioned in December THE PLAYERS Maria and Bill Bell, Nancy Davis, Julie Jaffe THE CAUSE In keeping with Taylor’s legacy of advocacy, luncheon co-host Debra Black used the preview as a platform to raise awareness for the Melanoma Research Alliance, a nonprofit benefiting the skin disease. BEST IN SHOW Of all the beau-bestowed jewels the ladies eyed at the preview, the showpiece de rĂ©sistance was the 33.19-carat Krupp diamond, which shone as bright as the 1968 day a smitten Richard Burton slipped it on La Liz’s finger.
