SANTA MONICA, Calif. — “I promised I would take her shopping,” Donna Karan said, as she stood beside her good friend Barbra Streisand at the opening of Bloomingdale’s Santa Monica on Wednesday night.
For a department store opening, the evening drew quite a celebrity crowd, including Diane Keaton and James Brolin and, from the industry, Nicky Kinnaird, Michael Ball, Arthur Coppola and Sidney Kimmel. The evening raised more than $125,000 for the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute’s Women’s Heart Center and clearly impressed Streisand, a solid supporter of the institute, with the cuisine.
