Inside Forward by Elyse Walker and the CFDA's Rising Talent Fête
On Tuesday night in Los Angeles, Hollywood's most fashionable set was surprised to find a Victorian-style home smack dab in the middle of the Tinseltown. Known for its picturesque patio and too-cute facade, the Lombardi House played host to Forward by Elyse Walker and the CFDA's Rising Talent celebration, where both must-know fashion designers and celebrities mingled in celebration of the new initiative, which helps foster the work of young talents.
Beauties on hand included Nicole Richie, Gillian Jacobs, Katharine McPhee, and Abigail Spencer, all of whom dazzled in flowy, Southern California-inspired cocktail dresses. Walker, the e-commerce site's leader, radiated in a blue dress with a matching fur stole, while guests sipped cocktails beneath the stars and the topic of conversation centered around three hot brands (Juan Carlos Obando, Suno, and Veronica Beard).
