Stars stepped out in Los Angeles last night for the 2017 Baby2Baby Gala, where Gwyneth Paltrow was presented the Giving Tree award by designer Tom Ford for her commitment to children’s causes.
Paltrow wore a sleek plunging suit courtesy of Ford for the special occasion. The Goop founder added a hint of sparkle by slipping into pointed pumps featuring a glittery silver capped toe.
In her speech, Paltrow thanked Baby2Baby founders Kelly Sawyer and Norah Weinstein for their “unbelievable” work. “There are children in our city a few miles away who are going to bed hungry and without diapers, and your dedication to taking care of these children as if they are your own is extraordinary,” Paltrow said. “I pledge my support from here on out. We are living in very strange times, and I think we need to rely on each other and our empathy to go into our communities, and help and lift each other up.”
Meanwhile, supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio sported a floral print strapless gown from Ermanno Scervino’s spring ’18 collection teamed with silver strappy sandals for the event.
Zoe Saldana, who was joined by husband Marco Perego, wore a sophisticated black coat dress with embellished black sandals.
Jessica Alba, who is pregnant with her third child, showed off her baby bump in a black dress with a lace overlay by Brock Collection. The 36-year-old mom of two completed the look with sky-high Giuseppe Zanotti velvet crystal-embellished platform sandals.
“Gwyneth and I really have bonded over being entrepreneurs. And I’ve gotten to know her as a funny, sweet and warm business leader,” Alba told Footwear News of the night’s honoree.
“It’s wonderful that she’s allowing us to honor her tonight and her work over these years. It’s an honor and she really is a wonderful person inside and out.”
