More than 500 guests were in attendance at the Beverly Wilshire on Nov. 6 to honor Cindy Crawford and Elyse Walker at the annual Women’s Guild Cedars-Sinai Luncheon. Molly Sims and Brooke Burke served as presenters but the showstopper was Crawford’s mother, Jennifer Maki and daughter, Kaia Gerber, who took the stage together and gave a touching tribute to Crawford before she received her award.
The red-carpet luncheon kicked-off with a silent auction featuring fine jew- elry and designer handbags, followed by three elyse walker runway fashion shows showcasing her new jewel-toned silky pantsuits and dresses during the awards ceremony. Shelley Cooper (Women’s Guild President), along with co-chairs Jody Lippman and Linda Lippman were on hand along with honorary co-chairs Atoosa Nehorai and Pary Mosenifar.
