Divine Design Gala
December 1st was the 19th Annual Divine Design Gala at the Beverly Hilton hotel. Divine Design is a wonderful shopping event and all the proceeds benefit Project Angel Food's mission to nourish the body and spirit of adults and children affected by HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening illnesses.
Designers such as Brooks Brothers, Diane Von Furstenberg, Elizabeth & James, Nanette Lepore, Tom Ford, Trina Turk, True Religion and many more were sponsors whose designs were all on sale for 50% off!
Thanks to one of my fabulous besties Cara (Travel Agent Extaordinaire), I was invited to attend this wonderful event with her. We were really excited to see some of the celebs that would be there, specifically Brad Goreski (aka former Rachel Zoe side kick). Being a fashionista myself, I was dying for a picture with Brad. I know you all would have loved to see such a great photo op, but I chickened out lol. So this is the closest we got...
Brad was wearing Brooks Brothers of course and I'd like to add that he is literally the size of one of my well toned pilates legs. I don't like guys being thinner then me, something just seems really wrong about that. We also noticed that Brad appears to have acquired a new side kick for himself. She's in the first picture above wearing the beige dress and Chanel pumps. Could there possibly be a Brad Goreski Project in the works?

Some pictures of the gala
There were a few people recognized for their hard work and dedication to Project Angel Food. One of these honorees was Kelly Osbourne.
Brad was also on hand to introduce the Brooks Brothers Spring fasion show
After the gala, it was back to more shopping and celeb spotting. We saw Brandy, David Arquette (yuck), Debi Mazar, Eric McCormack, Lily Collins and some SNL people (sorry I'm not familiar). I'm sure there were a lot more that we just didn't see, there were A LOT of people.
We had a fantastic time. It was great to spend some quality time with one of my nearest and dearest, it was long over due!
