The Annual Magnificent Beauty Luncheon was held on Wednesday, October 14 at the Capitol Grill in Palm Beach Gardens. Sponsored by Dr. Anita Mandal, Palm Beach Facial Plastic Surgeon and Miami couture designer, Ozcar G., the elegant luncheon with runway fashion show benefitted FACE TO FACE, the humanitarian arm of the Educational and Research Foundation of the American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery.
This fundraising effort for FACE TO FACE was the first of its kind in Palm Beach County to assist adults and children suffering from facial deformities as a result of birth trauma, domestic violence and war. Net proceeds supported the FACE TO FACE foundation. Dr. Anita Mandal, M.D., practicing since 1997, showcased several of her private patients who had undergone her signature procedure, the Whisper Lift. All patient models wore Ozcar G. couture and jewels by Hamilton Jewelers, to celebrate the magnificent inner and outer beauty of each and every woman. A formal fashion show followed, showcasing runway models dressed in Ozcar G.‘s luxury collection of couture cocktail wear and one-of-a-kind gowns adorned with jewelry by www.davidandmina.com with hair and makeup by Edmund James Salon.
The elegant 3-course luncheon, paired with champagne and select wines included a drawing of numerous luxury items donated by one-of-kind fashion, handbag and jewelry designers as well as by local salon and wellness centers.
