The menu of the 29th annual DreamBall, which raised more than $2 million, was inspired by the taste buds of its honorees. From the baked tagliolini and ham appetizer, a favorite of Dior’s Pamela Baxter, to the main course of branzino al forno, meant to pay homage to Firmenich’s Jerry Vittoria’s Italian roots, the event, held at Cipriani 42nd Street Sept. 26, was all about giving the fight against cancer a personal touch.
“I wanted to stop by and show my support. This is my duty,” said Goldie Hawn, who spoke to WWD about her personal connection to the crusade to find a cure. “My mom had breast cancer and this is an organization doing incredible work.” Hawn also discussed her “Mind Up” program, which is now in six countries and helps children to understand their emotions, with a focus on creating optimism and mental stability.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
