The stars were shining brightly at the Operation Smile Gala held at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, where Selma Blair received the Universal Smile Award.
The Legally Blonde actress was dressed in a canary yellow A-line gown garnished with black lace as she walked the red carpet and received her award.
Other Hollywood stars in attendance included Rhea and Mark Wahlberg, Roma Downey and Mark Burnett, Geena Davis, Ashley Green, Gavin Rossdale, Kate Upton and Whitney Cummings.
Singer/songwriter Natasha Bedingfield was also dressed in bright yellow as she performed three songs, including her Grammy nominated song “Unwritten,” from her first album with the same title.
TV Personality Brooke Burke-Charvet, Operation Smile Ambassador and the evening’s host, welcomed guests and provided a heartfelt overview of the mission of Operation Smile. She noted that the organization “has transformed lives across the globe via an operation that can happen in as few as 45 minutes and cost as little as $ 240. Their track record is unmatched.”
Other honorees included Henry Nguyen, recipient of the John Connor Humanitarian Award and the Rodosky family was presented the 2015 Founders Circle Award.
Nguyen is Managing General Partner of IDG Ventures Vietnam, a private equity firm focused on consumer, technology, media and telecom investments in Vietnam.
The 2015 Smile Gala raised more than $ 1.1 million to benefit Operation Smile, an international children’s medical charity that provided free surgeries for children suffering from facial deformities to transform their lives.
