Michael Jackson’s children Paris, 24, and Prince, 25, made a splash at the Harold and Carole Pump Foundation Gala in Beverly Hills this week. A cavalcade of famous figures flooded into the Beverly Hilton this Friday evening for the star-studded cancer fundraiser.
Prince, who like Paris is the son of Michael’s second wife Debbie Rowe, beamed as he held hands with his sister at the celebrity-strewn gala. Top-flight names could be spotted at the event, including Jamie Foxx, who brought back the 1970s in a checked black and purple suit and aviators worn at night.
Paris exuded her typical boho chic style, complementing her dirty blonde hairdo with a sleeveless party dress that revealed her sprawl of arm tattoos. Accentuating her unmistakable features with makeup, she slipped into a pair of mahogany leather boots and swung a matching handbag.
The honorees of the fete included former NFL heartthrob Ray Lewis, dashing as ever in a black suit, and ex-baseball player Ozzie Smith, known as the ‘Wizard Of Oz.’Oscar De La Hoya, another one of the famous sports names honored that evening, was a sizzling sensation as he posed with his leggy girlfriend Holly Sonders.
Los Angeles Lakers icon Jerry West went for a classic blue suit, while R&B singer Chante Moore slid into a skintight cocktail dress that highlighted her petite frame. Whitney Houston’s ex Bobby Brown was on hand for the festivities, which he attended on the arm of his cleavage-baring current wife Alicia Etheridge.
Sporting names even apart from that night’s honorees lit up Friday’s gala, such as retired baseball star Darryl Strawberry and ex-boxer Sugar Ray Leonard.The smoldering R&B crooner Eric Benet, who used to be married to Halle Berry, cut a seductive figure in a clinging suit perfectly fitted to his toned physique.
Judge Mathis was throwback chic in a cream blazer, Allyson Felix channeled Old Hollywood in a floor-length gown and Jerry Rice rocked a metallic green jacket.
