Anyone who knows me knows that two of my most favorite things in the world are fashion and charity. There's simply nothing I like better than mingling with beautiful people for a fantastic cause.
Last night, I hightailed it down to The Standard, Downtown LA for a very special evening hosted by The Standard and my dear friends Rose McGowan, Rain Phoenix and Liz Goldwyn in support of FEEDIE. For those who aren't familiar, FEEDIE lets you to upload your food pics to its live feed, and when you tag a participating restaurant, that restaurant donates money to provide a meal to a child in South Africa! Of course, all the restaurants, at all five of The Standard Hotels across the country are a part of this fantastic movement, so you should be, too…because I said so!
Now, back to the dinner. Our very own Chef Chang Sivilay put together a sumptuous summer feast upon which our most revered Angelenos dined. Seared pork belly, mushroom agnolotti, roasted chicken, watermelon salad and grilled green beans were just some of the dishes. I spied Bret Easton Ellis, Cameron Silver of DECADES, director Nick Jarecki, Sam Sparro, Grizzly Bear lead singer, Ed Droste, the Ruffian boys, Brian Wolk & Claude Morais, Nora Zehetner and uber-stylist, Keegan Singh, to name drop just a few of the luminaries I regaled throughout the evening.
Enjoy the snapshots from our spectacular downtown daze, and PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make sure to download FEEDIE and feed children who are less fortunate than you and I.
