    Japonais Restaurant & Lounge, Marie Claire Magazine, and Priority Films teamed up Thursday to host a red carpet cocktail reception benefiting The RedLight Children Campaign. The guests dined on Japonais signature dishes, sipped cocktails sponsored by the William Grant Portfolio, and danced to tunes spun by DJ SERG. The hostesses at the party were dressed as Geishas and were styled by Francky L'Official, Weldon Layne, Vincent Oquendo from Artists by Next Agency. Proceeds from the event went to benefit The RedLight Children Campaign. More photos and story from this event.

    The campaign works to stop all forms of child sexual exploitation, human trafficking and slavery. Condoleezza Rice recently recognized the RedLight Children for their extensive work fight global human rights violations and even awarded RedLight Children and its founder, Guy Jacobson, with the prestigious Global Hero Anti-Trafficking Award. The "Red Light" event was a huge success on Thursday thanks to the significant turnout of charitable attendees. More pictures from this event below:
