The Heavenly Host (Committee)
Fresh from his Malibu event to reveal an Angel—that’d be Gisele Bündchen—as his new campaign face, David Yurman headed for Heaven. Yurman joined the Art of Elysium’s Jennifer Howell last night at the L.A. home of artist and musician Mark Mothersbaugh (famously of Devo, to say nothing of many Wes Anderson soundtracks) to toast the host committee of the nonprofit’s 2013 Heaven Gala. Justin Bartha, Abigail Spencer (pictured, right), and Amy Smart were among the Young Hollywood-ites who turned out for the evening, but it was Amber Heard (pictured, left) who elicited singling out from Howell. “Did you know she’s bilingual?” she asked the crowd. The actress makes use of her two languages in her work for the L.A.-based organization, which encourages artists, actors, and musicians to donate their time and talent to seriously ill children. “She’s in the hospital with the kids—and talking to them—every chance she gets.”
The evening presented itself as an opportunity for David Yurman, in town for a mini tour that includes the reopening of his expanded Rodeo Drive flagship, to lend his support and champion the charity that has become a cause célèbre for celebs. “We want to find some way to give back,” he said, and Art of Elysium is “heroic, and unbelievably charitable.” Heroico, as Heard might say.
