Red carpet season is almost upon us. With it comes marvelous gowns and spectacular, poignant speeches. On Saturday night, stars from all over like Jessica Alba, Kate Hudson, and many more came to the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles to dazzle at Baby2Baby’s 10th Anniversary Gala for the Baby2Baby charity, which raises money for children in need.
This year, the gala honored Vanessa Bryant with the Giving Tree Award for her support and donations over the years to the organization. Bryant gave a tearful speech about how much her late husband Kobe Bryant loved attending these galas.
“I have to start by saying how much I miss my perfect date today. My husband, Kobe, loved attending…He loved attending Baby2Baby galas. With his big smile, he would look at me and say, ‘Babe, this is fricking awesome. Tonight, I’m your plus one… It’s the one event that I’m not obligated to do anything. I get to be your date, help families and enjoy great food.'”
She ended the powerful speech by saying, “I want to thank my husband Kobe and my daughters Natalia, Gianna, Bianka, and Capri. Without your love and support, I wouldn’t have the strength to be here this evening. I love you.”
The gala raised a record-breaking $8.5 million for the organization, and stars like Hilary Duff, Adam Levine, Kerry Washington, and more showed their support for the organization by showing up in style. Check out what these stars and more wore to the Baby2Baby gala.
