Last night was an only in LA moment.  95 blistering degrees.  And yes, The Third Annual Autumn Gala.  That’s fall for you in Hollywood.
 The event featured a fab re-creation of the 2013 SS J Mendel runway show, benefitting the Children’s Institute.
 My date for the evening was the gorgeous Garcelle Beauvais (from TV’s Franklin and Bash, and the upcoming Flight movie—playing Denzel Washington’s ex-wife—I hear it’s amazing!)
 Garcelle is one of Decades favorite clients and friends.  We’ve been collaborating on her red carpet looks for over 10 years—and she’s become a fixture on the best dressed lists.  Doesn’t hurt that she is drop dead gorgeousJ.
 Last night we hit it out of the park.  She lit up the already hot party with her J Mendel fur bolero and  sexy Victoria Beckham dress  plucked from the racks of Decades. 
 It was an anything for fashion moment.  Fur. 95 degrees. Wall to wall people.
 Mr Mendel was so taken by her look that he asked that she come to his trunk show today to have something personally made for her.
 That, my Decades friends, is hot beyond words.
