A Charitable Afternoon with Jack Black at Commerce Casino

One of my new year's resolutions is to be a bit more speedy and current with my events coverage blog posts. After this one!

A few months ago, I attended a celebrity poker tournament held at the Commerce Casino and hosted by Jack Black. The event was organized by All In to Win for Hope, a charity benefiting kidney disease patients and refugee families. Jack Black was a super gracious host as he mingled, chatted and posed for pictures with all the attendees, A slew of celebrities showed up to the event, but because it was a poker tournament, most of them were guys who were quite too casually dressed (as in cotton tees and Hawaiian shirts) for a fashion blogger to muse about. However, the sharply dressed James Kyson Lee, the actor best known for his role as Ando on Heroes, stood out. I loved his outfit-a gray and navy contrast cardigan, perfectly whisked jeans and a pair of striking cobalt blue shoes. His pendant, a gift from a local LA designer, completed his laid back but stylish look. We chatted for a bit about the LA fashion scene, gifting suites, award shows, and the APA entertainment community. He's such a sweet and humble guy. I have a feeling his star meter will be on the rise soon!








I opted to wear a simple but ethereal Ani Lee strapless dress. I love the dress's vintage fabric and the romantic ruffles. Ani Lee is quickly becoming the go to red carpet brand for Hollywood starlets. It's definitely one of my favs!
Cardigan: Alexander Wang
Booties: Sole Society
