On the lavendar carpet, these women turn into a giddy sisterhood, radiating in brilliant reds, purple, and fuschia, and kicking up their heels in Cole Haan silhouette and kitten heel pumps and isty-bitsy purses.
They may gone giddy but they haven't lost their influence. They managed to talk Cole Haan into throwing a fashion show to sweeten their awards luncheon.
On a vivid blue day at the Santa Monica Airport, Hollywood dignitaries mixed and mingled with Hollywood celebrities in this rare event, former Los Angeles Mayor, Richard Riordan and Sheriff Lee Baca socializing with pioneering hair stylist, Jose Eber, and the legendary Kirk Douglas and his wife, Anne.
This is more than just partying. The Douglases are being awarded the "Good News Maker of the Year Award," for raising funds and renovating broken-down playgrounds for children.
Since the girls are in charge, they spiced it up by inviting hunks for a good cause. HGTV's Carter Oosterhouse, star of "Carter Can" and "Red, Hot & Green," offered to chip in and contribute his construction skills in building safe but fun playgrounds in neglected neighborhoods.
"Sex in the City" star, Jason Lewis decided to join in on the sunny afternoon soiree with Cole Haan's CEO, James Seuss.
Once the guests settled into their gourmet lunch of either grilled salmon fillet or chicken breast, the Good News Girls commence this luncheon by reminding everyone that purpose for this event-to honor and reward people, whether they're celebrities or the average Joe or Jane, who make a positive impact in people's lives.
After people digested the meat and potatos of the purpose of the Good News Foundation, the girls offered a special treat-a Cole Haan fashion show of its current Fall/Winter 08 Collection.
