NEWPORT COAST — There were women in cutting-edge evening and cocktail dresses and sky-high stilettos. There were gentlemen looking razor sharp in suits.
They stood chatting in a lavish 14,000-square-foot, seven-bedroom mansion at 9 Beachcrest listed for $17.5 million.
But they were all there to support the Orange County chapter of the Dream Guild of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation in a fashionable way.
"We are incredibly honored; there are so many charities that could be chosen," said Linda Riley, executive director of the foundation.
The OC Look Party, held Wednesday, celebrated the style of Orange County from those who rock the looks of surfers, musicians and artists, as well as the high-end designer labels.
Sponsored by the lifestyle magazine Orange Coast, the third annual OC Look Party recognized 14 individuals and one couple for their fashion sense. Alexis Bellino, a cast member on the "Real Housewives of Orange County" TV show, was among them. She wore her own designer dress, Alexis, by Tal Sheyn.
