Leonard Simpson's Best Dressed
..... a '10!!'
It was a '10' on many fronts as the 4th Annual Leonard Simpson’s 10 Best Dressed was celebrated in La Jolla Farms December 5th, 2011 at the swanky Atoll themed home of Ramin Pourteymour.
Over 500 black tie fashionably dressed guests arrived to applaud fashionable givers to the community.
Leonard Simpson, Co-Founder of the 10 Best Dressed Awards, and 'Style Guy' of Fashion Forward
The 10 best-dressed women are: Joan Burton, Dolores Clark, Suzanne Figi, retired 2-star Navy Admiral Ronne Froman, real estate’s Maxine Gellens, Christy Macfarlane, Virginia Monday, Jane Ottenstein, Celeste Johnson, and Brandi McClain.
The 10 best-dressed men are Don Breitenberg, Peter Ferrantelli, Ross Grano, Gene W. James, San Diego Police Department Assistant Chief Boyd Long, Gilbert E. Meza, Jeff Mueller, Michael Stoff, Steven B. Thornton, and Robert E Wailes, MD.
The evening benefited the 10 organizations chosen for this year. They are: The Arc of San Diego, Kids Korps, Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego County, Home Start, NSW SEAL Family Foundation, San Diego Center for Children, San Diego Food Bank, San Diego Police Historical Association, St. Madeleine Sophie's Center, and the United Way.
Guests enjoyed poolside cocktails with swimmingly clad and muscled mermen. There were beautiful mermaids too.
Very appropriate for the Underwater Fantasy / 2,000 Leagues Under the Sea theme.
Sushi on the Rock appetizers were enjoyed, and so too were the fabulous tunes of David Patrone.
Guests enjoyed an artistic 'music box' performance by a 1800's clad in white model, and fashions by Mia Bella Gowns Couture, couture clothes by Celeste Boutique in Rancho Santa Fe, and designer Sharon Planche’s collection from France.
Leonard Simpson and Sally B. Thornton co-founded this Best Dressed event 4 years ago with Leonard adding his trademark 'fashion pizzazz.'
