Divine Design to honor Viola Davis, Patricia Field, Thomas Keller

December 2, 2011 | 10:15 am

Project Angel Food's annual Divine Design fundraiser in Los Angeles will honor Viola Davis, Patricia Field and Thomas Keller
It's hard to believe that this year marks the 20th anniversary of Divine Design, the annual gala fundraiser and six-day shopping extravaganza with proceeds benefiting Project Angel Food.

Serving all of Los Angeles County, Project Angel Food is dedicated to delivering nutritious meals to people living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. In 2010, Project Angel Food cooked and delivered more than 735,000 meals.

Over the years, a who's who of Hollywood -- including Elizabeth Taylor, Tom Ford, David Geffen and Anjelica Huston -- has been involved in raising money for the organization. And this year's Dec. 7 Divine Design bash promises to be star-studded too, with Viola Davis ("The Help") slated to pick up the Woman of Style Award, costume designer Patricia Field ("Sex and the City") being recognized as an iconic Fashion Visionary, and Thomas Keller being named Iconic Chef and Restaurateur. (It's probably too much to wish for that he would also be cooking the gala dinner.)

The event is to be hosted by "America's Next Top Model" runway coach J. Alexander, and Kristin Chenoweth is scheduled to perform. The marketplace is to feature merchandise from fashion, beauty and home design labels including Brooks Brothers, Barbie, Elizabeth & James, Trina Turk, L.A. Eyeworks and others, at prices that start at 50% off retail.

For information and tickets, go to the Divine Design website.
