Not only did the stars come out to call attention to a life-changing disease, but Toni Braxton also admitted for the first time, at the the 8th Annual Lupus LA Hollywood Bag Ladies Luncheon yesterday, that she is living with lupus. During her acceptance speech for Woman in Achievement award, Toni announced, “I have lupus, take a look, this is what lupus looks like.”
A glowing Rachel Zoe also won a Woman in Achievement honor during the ceremony at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel, her baby bump barely visible under a high-waisted black dress. She just confirmed today via Twitter that she and hubby Rodger Berman are expecting their first baby together.
The event featured a silent auction of beautiful handbags donated by top designers and celebrities, as well as a fashion show sponsored by Fendi. Other celeb guests included Ali Fedotowsky, Julie Benz, Kimberly Elise, and Brittny Gastineau.
