Helping Hands LA Mother’s Day Luncheon and Fashion Show

In honor of the greatest people in our lives, our Moms, The Helping Hand of Los Angeles presented its 87th annual Mother’s Day Luncheon and Fashion Show this past weekend to benefit the Cedars-Sinai Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

The event honored two attendees as 2016’s “Mother of the Year,” actress, model, and author Molly Sims, and philanthropist and founder of Phase One Foundation, Stacy Valner.

New You had to chance to attend the event and catch up with some of the stars along the way.

Mother of the Year, Molly Sims, talks about her Mother’s Day plans. “It’s going to be a family weekend. There’s a few surprises, a lot of eating and maybe a few gifts.” She also talked about how to keep your workout a priority.” You schedule it like you’re going to the grocery or your going on an appointment.” So make room on your schedules ladies!

Wedding and party planner, Mindy Weiss talked to us about the latest party trends. “We are still seeing a lot of rustic romance. A lot of vintage. The biggest trend is we’re back to very large wedding parties. A lot of my brides have 12-14 bridesmaids.” She also told us that her inspiration destination is Etsy!

We also caught up with radio personality and host of the night, Ellen K. She told us what all moms really want on Mother’s Day. “To sleep in. To take a long shower. To be able to have something to drink and a little bit of quiet and alone time.” She also told us about the big step she just took in her career and what Coldplay’s Chris Martin had to say about it!
