A GEM OF AN EVENING

There was plenty of sparkle and shine as jeweler David Yurman hosted an exclusive charity bling fling at his Bev Hills boutique. Celebs like Jacqueline Bisset and Alana Stewart added their own glimmer and shimmer to the splashy festivities. Alana turned heads in a glitzy silver and black 1920s-inspired mini while Jackie opted for a striking silver pantsuit. Famed swimsuit model Cheryl Tiegs kept it simple in a chic LBD, but accented her look with an impressive gold and diamond bangle.

Guests sipped chardonnay and munched on hors d’oeuvres while eyeing the designer’s latest collection of fine jewelry, watches and eyewear. Of course, members of the Wayne family, like JWCI Chairman Patrick Wayne, were on hand. Since 1981, the family has been working to promote groundbreaking cancer research and treatment in memory of their father, legendary actor John Wayne. The evening also served as a kick-off reception for this year’s Odyssey Ball, which will take place on April 9.

This year’s Odyssey honorees include Alana Stewart, who will be presented with the “True Grit” Award, and philanthropist Ruth Weil will be presented “The Duke” Award.

But for now, JWCI supporters had it in the bag as they shopped away in grand style. Best of all, a portion of the proceeds will benefit cutting edge research and treatment for the JWCI at Saint John’s Medical Center.

Art lovers won’t want to miss the final days of the Roy Lichtenstein exhibit at Pepperdine’s Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art. The eye-opening showcase of pop art closes on April 3. It’s an in-depth look at Lichtenstein, who helped launch the celebrated pop art style of the 1960s. The exhibit features 60 works created between 1973 and 1997. It takes the viewer on a visual journey to see how the artist took his comic book-inspired ideas from initial sketches and drawings to the finished product.

Music fans will find an evening with Marvin Hamlisch to be one singular sensation. The “A Chorus Line” composer, conductor and pianist will perform at the Smothers Theater on April 11. In addition to toe tapping show tunes, magical Marvin is famous for his film scores including “The Way We Were” and “The Sting.”

Pepperdine’s Center for the Arts season wraps up on a high note on April 17. That’s when the Smothers stage features a dance extravaganza called “Rhythmic Circus.”
