Of Bags And Babies

While a certain set is still hitting the red carpet in Cannes, producer and director J.J. Abrams, wife Katie McGrath, and Coach put forth a decidedly more low-key affair, benefiting the Children’s Defense Fund, last night in Santa Monica. “J.J. and Katie are really known in the entertainment circle as people who really walk the talk,” Mario Bello praised of the night’s co-hosts. And like Bello, Ali Larter (pictured, left) became a supporter of the cause, which provides advocacy for children in need, when she had her own son. “As a mother, you begin to realize how important a cause that supports children is.”

While the likes of Ellen Pompeo, Malin Ackerman (pictured, right), and Kristen Bell enjoyed the rooftop setting at Bad Robot (the headquarters of J.J.’s production company), plenty of guests were busy buying the special edition of the brand’s iconic duffel sac, created in fuschia and teal, with proceeds supporting the charity. And for most, the talk of the evening was how integral a role Coach played in their first “luxury” experience. Jordana Brewster received a bucket bag for her 13th birthday and Alexis Bledel told Style.com that her first Coach bag at 13 meant “you were actually getting older and were kind of a grown-up lady.” For Olivia Munn, the meaning ran deep. “I’m first-generation American and all of my aunts when they first came here had these Coach bags,” she said of her vintage collection that now runs 30-deep. “It was something that they bought that made them feel like they were part of America.”
