Charles In Charge

| July 2, 2012 | Parties

The competition was friendly fierce among the 175 guests who shopped in the first Fashion for a Cause contest—part of the grand opening of Elizabeth Charles’ Newport Beach boutique. Stylish attendees like Rona Pfeiffer, Wendy Enkema and Claudia Ross filled the airy store, where they chatted with the retailer’s founder and namesake, sipped cocktails, and checked out apparel and accessories from high-end labels like KARL by Karl Lagerfeld, Erdem, Pret-a-SURF and Carven. They later whipped out their plastic to buy the brands they browsed and support their org of choice—and local nonprofit Just a Little Cloth was the big winner. Of course, we can’t help but think Newport’s retail lineup is a bit richer, too. Photos by Evan Dorian from Kaptured Images
