The British Academy of Film and Television Arts held their annual Los Angeles Tea Party on September 17. The red carpet leading into L'Ermitage Bevery Hills Hotel emanated with beautiful and famous celebrities like Ms. Amanda Righetti and Ms. Julie Bowen.
The star of The Mentalist, Righetti approached the hotel wearing a Maria Lucia Hohan dress and Kabana earrings.
Meanwhile, Modern Family starlet Julie Bowen appeared wearing a Tony Ward Couture dress that wowed many of the encircling photographers. Tony Ward's haute couture collection was launched in 1995 in his home country of Lebanon. Ward is known for his painstaking workmanship that combines seductive, transparent fabrics with hand-sewn embroidery and jewel embellishments. Before the inception of his own line, Ward worked with renowned designers Claude Montana, for Lanvin; Gianfranco Ferré, for Dior; and Karl Lagerfield, for Chloé. After his tenure at The Maison Chloé, Ward returned to Lebanon to concentrate on the launch of his namesake line in his family's 40-year-old atelier. The collection is created for the sophisticated woman whose distinctive charm and timeless style mirror the exquisite detail of Ward's designs-- a perfect match for Ms. Bowen.
