Parties: Celebs Brown Bag It at the P.S. Arts Bag AuctionMay 31, 2013 @ 5:15 pm
Who knew stars like Kristin Davis (in Dolce & Gabbana) and Minnie Driver (in Shoshanna) liked to brown bag their lunch every once in a while! Celebrities gathered at the 10th Annual Bag Lunch in Holmby Hills, California to munch on gourmet brown bag lunches filled with salads and sandwiches and bid on donated designer bags to help raise money for P.S. Arts, an organization that provides arts education to children in under-privileged communities in Southern and Central California. Hosted by celebrity stylists Elizabeth Stewart and George Kotsiopoulous, the event drew in over 200 guests including Shiri Appleby (in Giambattista Valli), Katie Lowes (Theia), and Amy Rosoff, who mingled in the gorgeous estate. “I love this event because there are all of these expensive bags we would normally be buying,” Davis told InStyle.com. “So you kind of feel like you can splurge and buy things you wouldn’t normally buy because all the money is going to P.S. Arts. And that’s pretty rare.” The event raised over $150,000 with all the proceeds benefiting P.S. Arts. Winning bidders not only took home a designer bag, they also received a bounty of beauty from brands such as Dior Beauty and Smashbox.
