Learning Lab Ventures’ Winter Gala raised funds for the educational nonprofit and honored fashion designer Mary Alice Haney Davidov.
THE PARTY Over 300 guests like Ali Larter and Alessandra Ambrosio sauntered inside the Beverly Park estate of Alec and Kelly Gores in metallic gowns for a fashionable night of entertainment and philanthropy. Glam attendees posed inside a swanky parlor-turned-photo booth with models clad in Haney frocks, while others mingled with Pressed Juicery cocktails in hand. THE SCENE Prior to the Learning Lab Ventures’ team honoring Mary Alice Haney Davidov for her charitable contributions, Jamie Foxx kicked off the Net-a-Porter sponsored gala by exclaiming: “Ladies and gentlemen, this is going to be a great night!,” as he danced to Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies.” THE HIGHLIGHTS After host and LLV founder Rochelle Gores Fredston addressed the crowd, Haney Davidov shared a lyric from Tim McGraw’s “Humble and Kind” as she accepted her award: “Don’t take for granted the love that life gives you,” she said. “Always stay humble and kind.” Spoken like a true lady. -Brandi Fowler
