Philanthropy and retail came together Thursday night at CoachArt’s fund-raiser and dinner at the Fairmont Hotel, where the children’s nonprofit honored Alibaba’s Jennifer Kuperman Johnson as its Heart & Humanity Champion.
Attendees hailed from finance, technology and retail, including several of the honoree’s friends and family members. The festivities kicked off with drinks and mingling before segueing into the Fairmont’s Grand Ballroom, where classic cuisine met classic architecture. Guests enjoyed a three-course dinner of hand-pulled mozzarella salad, grilled chicken or vegetarian gnocchi, and chocolate tart or vanilla-bean creme brulée. The tables surrounded the stage, where a fun, lively lineup of speakers and heartwarming videos spotlighted the children at the heart of CoachArt.
Super-influencer @chiaraferragni doesn't miss a beat— or a party. Last night, she inaugurated Pomellato's newest boutique on Rodeo Drive, decked out in bling from the jewelry brand. At the event, Ferragni took some time to sit down with us to discuss motherhood, being a newlywed, and the hotly-anticipated documentary she is currently filming.

As the conversation around sustainability only grows stronger in fashion circles, Everlane has made a new declaration: it’s saying goodbye to virgin plastic. The company, whose ethos is all about “radical transparency,” in terms of pricing and ethical factories, plans to be completely free of virgin plastics by 2021. “We’re producing millions of units and every unit that goes out is wrapped in plastic,” said founder and CEO, Michael Preysman. “At the beginning, it was like, ‘Hey, let’s just take off all these plastic bags.’ There are a lot of complications to that. Everything you buy in the world comes wrapped in plastic when it comes out of the factory.”
