A fashion show in May? Then it could only have been the annual Fashion For Life show. Models, designers, celebrities and the who’s who of LA gathered at the Mercedes-Benz of Beverly Hills on Sunday to raise money for Friendly House, the oldest substance abuse recovery home for women in the City of Angels.

The afternoon started with a silent auction, where guests bid on designer bags that included Christian Dior and Kate Spade, four box seats to the Dodgers game, spa treatments, hotel stays and much more, all while munching on scrumptious appetizers, non-alcoholic drinks and a selection of delicious desserts from Michael Hollingsworth Catering.

After filling their stomachs, Lisa Rinna, Amber Valletta, and Jillian Reynolds took the stage to show their support for Friendly House and honor fashion retailer Lisa Kline with the 2008 Vision Award. Before presenting her with the award, Reynolds said, “Lisa Kline has become a fashion institution on Robertson. This (award) couldn’t happen to a better person.” To which, Klein replied, “You’re a huge part of the fashion business Jillian” during her acceptance speech.

The afternoon closed with a runway show highlighting Los Angeles designers Kevan Hall, Robert Rodriguez, Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent, Rory Beca, Marc Callo, Diane Samandi, and Elsie Katz Couture. The audience also received a sneak peak at Paige Black Label, the new collection of skirts, trousers, dresses, vests and jackets by Paige Adams-Gellar.
