Last night at the Waldorf Astoria, the 31st anniversary Alzheimer’s Association Rita Hayworth Gala was a huge success and Shoeholics was once again proud to take part in such a great cause fighting to cure a dreadful disease that is affecting at least one in every 2 to 3 families worldwide. As much as we all like to clack about in heels, we all want to have sound memories of our collection well into old age. This is a cause we can all relate to. Our very own editor Tinu, clad in Valentino ensemble and Christian Louboutin heels, was on hand at the star studded gala to capture the moment for us.
In attendance were Gala Chair, Princess Yasmin Aga Khan, Brooke Shields, Patty and John McEnroe, Deborah Norville, Hilary and Bryant Gumbel, Dee and Tommy Hilfiger, Dennis Basso, Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin. Ronnie Spector and Lelsey Gore performed some hit songs that had everyone on their feet dancing in their fabulous shoes! Silent and live auction items included a Dennis Basso fur, internship at M&C Saatchi PR and Naeem Khan atelier, a dining experience with a world renowned chef Eric Ripert of Le Bernardin and Rao’s restaurant, Tickets to Hugh Jackman Broadway show, just to name a few. The gala has raised tens of millions of dollars for the cause over the years. For more on how you too can donate to support the cause, please visit the official Alzheimer’s Association website.
