On the red carpet I spotted the following: Creative Coalition CEO Robin Bronk ,Tim Daly, Haley Joel Osment, Rob Thomas, Gabourey Sidibe, Jennifer Coolidge, Andrew Dost, Naya Rivera, Bailee Madison, Alanna Masterson, Connie Nielsen, Emily Osment, Michelle Trachtenberg, Constance Zimmer, Troian Bellisario, Darby Stanchfield, Jason Isaacs, U.S. Representative Ander Crenshaw, U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow , Congresswoman Debbie Dingell.
After the red carpet, select press was granted to come inside the venue (STK DC) for the cocktail portion. While inside, I had the pleasure of meeting Bailee Madison who was wearing a pretty Aldofo Sanchez dress. I chatted with Bailee before checking out the setting. The sweetest young lady ever. So polite!
I made the rounds and found myself near Kelly Rutherford and Michelle Trachtenberg. (In a fabulous Smythe cheetah print coat) I was in the midst of a mini Gossip Girl reunion! Kelly who wore a colorful cocktail dress by Lee Anderson Couture - took the time to briefly talk fashion & to my delight - recognized me from the prior night at the #RockTheVote #WHCD Kick-Off Party.
After chatting with my fellow media buddies from prior events - I made my way to the dining section where Naya Rivera and Gabourey Sidibe were sitting. The popular STK DC was nicely set-up for the impending dinner. Following behind my photographer pals and after checking out the table settings & menu, I briefly chatted with the lovely Naya Rivera. I immediately congratulated her on the baby news and asked if they're expecting a boy or a girl - Naya quickly responded that they don't even know! They want to be surprised until the baby is due. Naya was laid-back, sweet and cool as she chatted with my media crew!
For starters - guests had Market Lettuce. As for the Entree - 6oz Filet was served along with Skuna Bay Salmon , Tiger Prawn and Pan-Roasted Chicken Breast. Dessert - guests noshed on the Almond Fudge Brownie .
The Creative Coalition was formed for the charitable and educational purposes of bringing together artists and entertainers to learn about pressing issues so they can better inform and influence the community and nation.
