She Leads, You Follow: Global Gift Gala Edition

On Monday, Nov. 30, the city of London played host to the Global Gift Foundation’s  Global Gift Gala at the Four Seasons Hotel. The foundation, which serves to “positively impact the lives of children, women and families that find themselves in need,” got the help it needed from a certain few charitable guests.

One such guest was Eva Longoria, an ambassador for the Global Gift Foundation. The actress attended the gala in what InStyle says is a royal blue Victoria Beckham gown, complete with a deep v-neckline and oversized bow at the waist. Longoria polished off her look with a dainty necklace and ring to add a subtle touch of shine.

Longoria was joined at the gala by her equally stylish friend and the designer of her gown, Victoria Beckham. Beckham also wore a gown of her own design, wearing a minimalistic, all-black camisole-style dress which she paired with diamond drop earrings.

Although this is where we usually discuss how these red carpet styles can offer us certain hints and tips on how to dress from day to day, today’s She Leads, You Follow is a bit different. If there is only one thing to take away from this article, it is this: charity trumps fashion any day of the week, not just during the holiday season, but every single day of the year. So while we could discuss how the bow sash on Longoria’s gown accentuates her waist while Beckham’s earrings frame her face, these ladies demonstrate the importance of helping those in need and advocating on their behalf. Their fashion is great, but taking their lead in being charitable is even better.
