[Photo via] Friday night, Century City's Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel dazzled in the name of philanthropy at the 18th Annual Race to Erase MS gala with this year's Rock & Royalty theme. Nancy Davis and Tommy Hilfiger were co-presenters of the night which featured a cocktail reception, live music performances, a fashion show and auctions for the star-studded guest list. It was one event not to be missed, not even if you were arrested and hadn't yet spent 24 hours out of jail like a certain someone who had no qualms about smiling for the cameras...
After arrivals and walking the red carpet guests sipped cocktails and enjoyed a runway show for Hilfiger's new line, Andrew Charles, with celebrity models including Ashlan Gorse, AJ Michalka and a very trim Raven Symone (who is now a doppelganger for another starlet) strutting down the catwalk. In true Hollywood form, the event took things over the top with a live performance by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts who rocked the crowd before country star and MS survivor Clay Walker took the stage.
Celebs and notables in attendance included Janice Dickinson, Rachel Leigh Cook, Jason Kennedy, Lea Thompson, Ashlan Gorse, David Faustino, Debbie Gibson, Amber Lancaster, Tia Carrere, Brandon Davis, Antonio Villaraigosa, Daisy Fuentes, Virginia Madsen, Raven Symone, Austin Winkler, Jami Miller, La Toya Jackson, Garcelle Beauvais, AJ Michalka, Cindy Crawford, Paris and Nicky Hilton. Even Brandon Davis, fresh from the slammer after getting busted in the valet driveway of the Roosevelt Wednesday night for socking Ben Gleib in the face AND being found in possession of blow, came out to show his support for his mother's cause. He's a lot of things, but don't ever say he's not a devoted son.
