My husband and I had the honor of attending a black tie awards Gala for the Unlikely Heroes event at the Sofitel, Beverly Hills just a little over a week ago. A good friend invited us, and when we saw it was also a few days before our anniversary we decided to jump and go. It was an amazing night full of connections, beautiful clothes and beautiful people who are deeply involved in Music, Film, Marketing, Finance, Etc. But more importantly the event was to shed light on an amazing effort that Erica Greve started and has been involved with… Providing a safe place for victims of sex trafficking. 27 million people are currently ensalved today around the world! I believe in preserving human dignity at any stage. We must work together to help free these beautiful souls. There were celebrities all over the room and cameras going all night, not only from press right outside in the lobby and paparazzi on the curb, but the true celebrities are the ones that work tirelessly behind the scenes, losing sleep to help rescue the perishing.
“The trouble is that once you see it, you can’t unsee it. And once you’ve seen it, keeping quiet, saying nothing, becomes as political an act as speaking out. There’s no innocence. Either way, you’re accountable”. -Arundhati Roy
Here are a few photos from the night. My husband is head to toe Zara and I wore a vintage 80’s (can you believe the 80’s are vintage??) beaded gown thanks to Elluments in Deep Ellum. The jewelry is also Vintage from the 50’s. I did my own hair and makeup–which is way more challenging than on my clients. Some of my favorite products that night were the RCK (Red Carpet Kolour) in medium–used as a Primer and also as a body glow, Makeup Forever HD, and deep vintage red lips by MAC–“Ruby Woo” and “Dare you” in the 6 Reds Lip palette.
