Over 3,000 people made the trek through Malibu’s hills to attend The Food Event 2012, Los Angeles magazine’s seventh annual culinary extravaganza held yesterday at the Saddlerock Ranch. Picture white tents on a lawn surrounded by sloping vineyards, horses and camels grazing in nearby paddocks, and a spirited crowd sampling a handpicked selection of fine cuisine, creative cocktails, and artisan wines. Though focus was on the delightful assortment of culinary treats, we couldn’t help but notice the large number of fashionable Food Event attendees. Here are three casually well-dressed guests:
Left: Allison paired a white lace Free People dress with a gold H&M bangle and Steve Madden purse. Her cable-knit sweater, turquoise necklace, and brown leather boots (a great fit at the Saddlerock venue) are all from BP Nordstrom.
Center: Vanessa kept warm in a Stella McCartney sweater, Zara skinny pants, and Top Shop boots. She accessorized with a Hysteric Glamour hat (very fitting!) and a necklace from a vintage shop in New York.
Right: Caroline brought a splash of color to the garden festivities with her floral Very J playsuit and chic Anthropologie pearls.
