Last night, actress Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon glamorously hosted the 2009 Gala for the Edeyo Foundation in the ultra-chic Griffin. Honoring Nigel Barker (notorious judge and photographer on America's Next Top Model) for his instrumental work in raising awareness and funds for children in Haiti, guests began the enchanted evening at Milk Studios, while partying over photographs and drooling over Nigel Barker's recent documentary about his trip to Haiti. Afterward, attendees headed over to the Griffin and mingled over martinis, bumped to beats by DJ Cassidy, and distributed their dollars at the exclusive silent auction table. A myriad of sparkling beauties bedazzled the crowd, including John Legend, Spike Lee, and Tory Burch, who frolicked amongst guests and devoured fruity Cuca Fresca cocktails. Louis Vuitton hosted the stylish after-soiree, where guests enjoyed couture, champagne, and conversation. Cheers!
