REGGAE ON MELROSE: Ziggy Marley is planning to give Melrose Avenue a Jamaican flavor when he headlines John Varvatos’ annual Stuart House benefit on April 26 in Los Angeles. The reggae musician will be joined by this year’s honorary chair, Chris Pine, and there will also be guest DJ performances by Nick Simmons and Wade Crescent. The designer will close the street outside his West Hollywood boutique for an afternoon of live music, shopping, auctions, food and fashionable festivities. “This year marks the 12th anniversary of the John Varvatos Stuart House Benefit,” Varvatos said. “Over the past 11 years, we’ve raised over $5 million for Stuart House. I’m excited that Chris and Ziggy will join me to support the cause.”
