NRDC 20th Anniversary Celebration Event Highlights

Posted by:

Held at the elegant Regent Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills, the event happened to coincide with the reported 2nd nuptials of reality darlings Heidi and Spencer – however, all eyes and media were packed into the glamorous ballroom to catch a glimpse of the wall-to-wall celebrities, ingénues rubbing elbows with Hollywood legends, moguls & filmmakers, comedians, and models – including Robert Redford, Leonardo DiCaprio, Cameron Diaz, Brian Grazer, Lawrence Bender, Ron & Kelly Meyer, Norman Lear, Tom Ford, Robert Kennedy, Jr, Natasha Bedingfield, Heather Graham, Amber Valetta, Linda Evangelista & Peter Morton, Leah Remini, Chelsea Handler, Jeff Garlin, and Paul Reiser. 

Guests sipped organic wine and champagne, grooved to a live acoustic set by Grammy winning band Maroon 5, and danced until the wee hours at the after-party with tunes spun by DJ Rosanna Arquette.

Model Amber Valletta was stunning in a red dress, too bad another party-goer was wearing the SAME dress, the two ladies collided on the red carpet and spent the rest of the evening try to avoid each other!

Cameron Diaz, Lisa Kudrow, and comedian Chelsea Handler weren’t in the mood to talk to the press instead opting to graciously take photos only. Quipped Handler – “where’s the bar, get me to the vodka – STAT!”

The event was hosted by funny lady Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jon Hamm from Mad Men.  Everyone was blown away by the presence of Robert Redford, with Louis-Dreyfus pretty much summing up for all in attendance “Oh My God -  Robert Redford just said my name.  I’m done – I can go home now!”

The event raised over $2 MILLION for the NRDC’s Los Angeles Office – named one of the greenest office buildings in the country.
