A scenic brunch and the promise of shopping exclusive Valentino pieces would be enough to lure some of L.A.'s best dressed women to a Beverly Hills event, but they specifically turned out in droves for a very worthy cause: supporting the Violence Intervention Program (VIP), which cares for victims of abuse, neglect, and sexual assault.

The event was sponsored by Valentino and hosted by the HEART charity (Helping Ease Abuse Related Trauma), which provides funds and support for the families receiving services at VIP. The event drew an impossibly stylish and charitable crowd, including Rachel Zoe, Chriselle Lim, Caroline Daur, Kitty Cash, Louise Roe, and others. Of course, they dressed to the nines for the sunny L.A. day, leaving us with some stellar summer outfit ideas. They won't mind if we steal them, right? Scroll down for outfit combos inspired by the guests at the Valentino and HEART event.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 13 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
