This past Sunday, I attended the Nanettte Lepore Fashion Show at Saks Fifth Avenue Tysons Galleria to benefit Childhelp, an amazing organization dedicated to helping victims of child abuse and neglect. The fashionably star-studded event raised over $50,000 for Childhelp - awesome! - with Nanette herself in attendance treating guests to a peak at her Holiday 2013 collection, which was filled with florals, flirty skirts and sexy pant suits. Below are a few of my favorites.
Oh, and did I mention in addition to the designer herself being in attendance, some amazing celebs were in attendance too?! Like Dancing With The Star's Maksim Chmerkovskiy and General Hospital's Finola Hughes and Ian Buchanan, who all are huge supporters of Childhelp flying down to DC to attend this fashion show being just one of the ways they lend their time and money to this wonderful organization. And I might add one other thing since I don't always run in to this, that each of the celebs were sooo friendly, warm-hearted, and genuine as ever - they stopped to chat and take pictures with just about every guest in attedance and you could feel their passion for Childhelp.

As I mentioned earlier, Childhelp is dedicated to helping children who are victims of abuse and neglect focusing on prevention, intervention and treatment. They have Chapters across the U.S., including right here in the DC-area, so to find out how to get involved visit them at childhelp.org for more information.
