On Trend

| July 10, 2014 | Parties

The Party
Ladies who were dressed to the nines poured into the Omni Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Montelucia for the annual Celebrity Luncheon in honor of the 10 very fabulous 2014 Trendsetters. Attendees and honorees alike enjoyed a Champagne reception and delectable meal by the resort’s chef, Michael Cairns.

The People
Tara Hitchcock brought plenty of energy and laughs to the event as mistress of ceremonies, and had the honor of introducing keynote speaker Bethenny Frankel. But all eyes were on the fashionable and philanthropic Trendsetters: Kimberly Afkhami, Carol Clemmensen, Chrissy Donnelly, Natalie Gaylord, Lisa Handley, Linda Herold, Susie Muzzy, Renee Parsons, Lauri Termansen and Pam Ward.

The Scene
Auctioneer Josh Levine rallied the crowd to bid on concert seats, vacations and more while guests tucked into their deconstructed Cobb salads and divine flourless chocolate cake. And in between bites, some guests were selected to ask questions of Frankel, who shared her witty advice on everything from business to life and had everyone—Trendsetters included—in stitches. –Photos by Haute Photography
