Combine sports (the LA Lakers) and fashion (Jimmy Choo) in LA and you’re guaranteed a good celebrity turnout! ‘Vampire Diaries‘ star Kat Graham, Ashley Benson, Dylan McDermott, Lily Collins, Claire Holt, James Maslow, Heather McDonald, Dorothy Wang and more celebs stopped by the Jimmy Choo Shopping Event benefiting the Lakers Youth Foundation and STAPLES Center Foundation to do some shopping.
The charity event was held the same night as the LA Lakers and Phoenix Suns basketball game. Celebs checked out the Jimmy Choo pop-up shop next to the exclusive Chairman’s Room – boasting the latest collection of shoes and handbags with a portion of the proceeds going toward the Lakers Youth Foundation and STAPLES Center Foundation.
Former ‘Vampire Diaries’co-stars Kat Graham and Claire Holt were spotted chatting, hugging and talking about how much they missed each other. Kat practically tackled Holt with a hug when she first spotted her old castmate.
James Maslow took a night off from ‘Dancing with the Stars’ to relax with a buddy, check out the merchandise and watch the game. He was overheard talking about how great of a coach Peta Murgatroyd and his intense rehearsal schedule for DWTS, saying:
I need so much more sleep now that I’m dancing and working out all the time.”
I guess so! Heather McDonald was spotted buying Petrol Glitter Luna Platform Pumps – special for her upcoming stand-up comedy show that she is taping later next month. Dorothy Wang of Rich Kids of Beverly Hills also picked up a pair of shoes saying:
I love Jimmy Choo because there are so many styles choices – there’s always something for everyone.”
She also mentioned that she is about to start filming season 2 of the MTV reality show. Ashley Benson quickly stopped by the Chairman’s room while on a fun night out with her dad. On-and-off boyfriend Ryan Good was also spotted in the audience across the way. Sounds like a great event! Hopefully they raised a lot for the Lakers Youth Foundation and STAPLES Center Foundation.
