Hollywood Celebrities Strutting Stuff For Charity

Yesterday, Hollywood's bevy of gliterratis and beauties were honored and celebrated by America's cosmetic brand Max Factor ait its first annual star-studded Max Factor Salutes Hollywood Fashion Show to benefit Clothes Off Our Backs, a charity organization founded by actress Jane Kaczmarek and actor Bradley Whitford to help improve the lives of children across the globe.

Hosted by the sensuous and sultry Carmen Electra, the fashion show was attended by Hollywood big names like
Denise Richards of Blonde and Blonder, Olivia Wilde of The Black Donnelley's, Kristen Bell of Veronica Mars, Nadine Velazquez of My Name is Earl, Kristin Cavallari of Laguna Beach, Ali Sweeney of Days of Our Lives, Noreen DeWulfof The West Bank Story, Giuliana DePandi of E! News, Beau Garrett of Entourage, Autumn Reeser and Melinda Clarke of The O.C. who were all strutting the designer stuff on the runway to benefit Clothes Off Our Backs.

"Hollywood glamour and star power embody MAX Factor's legacy of fashion- forward, glamorous makeup artistry and talent," said Gina Drosos, President of Global Cosmetics, Procter & Gamble Beauty. "MAX Factor is proud to partner with Clothes Off Our Back to raise money for children's charities by auctioning the designer fashions and MAX Factor beauty products used to create the beautiful looks seen at today's show."

"Bringing together fashion, beauty and charity is what our organization is all about," said Jane Kaczmarek, actor, philanthropist and co-founder of Clothes Off Our Back. "We thank MAX Factor, the stylists, the designers and the celebrities for their generous support and for sharing their good fortune with our organization." World-renowned makeup artist and P&G Global Creative Design Director, Pat McGrath, employs her creative genius, vision and seasoned-eye at the MAX Factor Salutes Hollywood Fashion Show.

By creating high-glam, cutting-edge makeup looks with MAXalicious Glitz and Glaze Lip Glosses, MAXEye Shadow Exotics Collection, Volume Couture Mascara, Pan-Stik makeup and Erace concealer, Pat's collaboration with the designers involved in the show results in unique, one-of-a-kind designs that bring the makeup to life.

Celebrity hairstylist Ken Paves creates some of the hottest manes in Hollywood, including Jessica Simpson, Carmen Electra and Jennifer Lopez. His signature style for creating innovative, sexy hair designs accentuates the fashion and makeup with the sleek, beautiful tresses seen on the runway.
The glamorous ensembles coming down the catwalk are assembled by accredited wardrobe stylist Nicole Chavez, whose clients include Rachel Bilson, Scarlet Johansson, Kristen Bell and Ashlee Simpson.

Nicole's keen eye for chic, avant-garde style is instrumental in creating a common thread amongst the multi-faceted designer creations of Arden B., Cosa Nostra, David Meister, Dina Bar-el, Elsie Katz Couture, Kevan Hall, Lloyd Klein, Louis Verdad, Mon Atelier, Rachel Pally, Richard Tyler, Sue Wong and Trina Turk. Additionally, the Hollywood beauties will strut in stilettos donated by Stuart Weitzman and will be adorned in $6.5 million dollars worth of Martin Katz jewels.

The bidding for the clothes paraded on the runway will start on 16th March at Clothes Off Our Backs official website and all proceeds will benefit the charity.
