Dainty Dresses, Daring Dreamers And Drama At The Hope HonorsWelcome, friends, to The Hope Honors, hosted by the Avon Foundation at Cipriani 42nd Street. The event honored those who support the fights against breast cancer and domestic violence (those are the dreamers) and drew a random assortment of big names: Patrick and Jillian Dempsey, Jordin Sparks, Lauren Conrad, Cynthia Rowley and Suze Orman, to name a few. This being a serious and charitable function, most people toed the line, sartorially-speaking. But! There were exceptions! And (manufactured, by me) drama! The Good, The Bad, The Scandalous — after the jump!







The Good: Dainty Dresses, Daring Dreamers And Drama At The Hope HonorsWhile I refuse to liken Lauren Conrad to Audrey (!) it's hard to argue with a classic LBD.

The Bad: Dainty Dresses, Daring Dreamers And Drama At The Hope Honors...and then scarlet woman Andrea Jung (in strangely stiff bodice) steals him away! The drama!
Dainty Dresses, Daring Dreamers And Drama At The Hope HonorsI get what Cynthia Rowley's doing here. But the effect is kind of Dorothea Lange!
