J.Lo’s L.A. Lunch
Not all the fashion action is happening at Lincoln Center and Milk Studios this week. Yesterday, Gucci’s Frida Giannini was honored at UNICEF’s inaugural Women of Compassion Luncheon in L.A. before a crowd that included Camilla Belle, Mary J. Blige, and lensman Patrick Demarchelier.
Jennifer Lopez, now starring in the ads for Gucci’s children’s collection alongside twins Max and Emme, was on hand to present the designer with her award. “We actually met when I was about to pop, maybe two weeks before I gave birth at the big Malawi fundraiser she did with Madonna,” Lopez (left, with Giannini) told Style.com. “Every child in the world, in essence, could be yours,” she went on. “It makes you want to do things and work toward helping in any way you can, in every way you can.”
Giannini, for her part, stayed in town for the Grammys, then headed back to Milan. With less than two weeks before her Fall show, she dropped some hints about her impending collection. “You will see an explosion of color, which is very unusual for a Fall collection.”
