Hollywood’s most charitable celebrities and socialites flocked to the famous Beverly Wilshire Hotel last week for Lupus LA's 11th Annual Hollywood Bag Ladies Luncheon.
The Lupus LA fundraiser featured its signature silent auction, where guests staked their claim on coveted bags donated from the most elite designers, retailers and celebrities. Impeccably dressed ladies clamored over a stunning $16,000 Dior purse (won by BiteSize TV owner, Marta Bloom), while others had their eyes set on the ultimate item; a once-in-a-lifetime fashion package including a Zac Posen Gown, tickets to New York Fashion Week and a 4-night stay at the Trump Soho Hotel.
After the bidding frenzy, stars were treated to lunch and a dazzling ‘Parade Of Handbags’ fashion show featuring bags from designers including Burberry, Jimmy Choo and Fendi. The luncheon was especially memorable as it raised almost half a million dollars for Lupus LA, making it the most successful Hollywood Bag Ladies Luncheon yet.
Celebrity attendees included Snoopzilla, Nikki Reed, Louise Roe, Melissa Joan Hart, Angie Everhart, Kathy Hilton, Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi, Kelly Stone, Brittny Gastineau, Lisa Gastineau, Sandra Taylor, Eden Sassoon, Meredith Monroe, Lesley Nicols, Kenny Doughty, Lilly Ghalichi, Katrina Parker, Vanessa Branch, Kellie Martin, Jackie Cruz, Asa Soltan Rahmati and Taylor Spreitler.
