Jeff Rudes, founder and chief executive officer of J Brand Jeans, will receive the City of Hope’s most prestigious philanthropic honor at the annual Spirit of Life® gala on November 20, 2010 at the Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills. Jeff will be recognized for his business and philanthropic achievements by City of Hope’s Apparel Industries Group, a committed group of industry visionaries who support City of Hope’s efforts to conquer cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases.
“I’m delighted to be part of this year’s Spirit of Life efforts and to give my enduring support to City of Hope,” said Jeff Rudes. “As an organization that remains at the forefront in research and treatment for cancer and other diseases, supporting them is more important than ever.”
Each year, the Apparel Industries Group presents its highest honor to an individual who exemplifies the ideals and values that have guided City of Hope for nearly a century. The Spirit of Life represents the qualities that make an individual’s life worthy of admiration: their generosity, their ability to inspire and their desire to make a difference in the world. The Apparel Industries Group continues its commitment to support the lifesaving work of physicians and researchers at City of Hope.
“We’re proud to recognize Rudes’ contributions to the apparel industry as a pioneer in the denim market,” said Csynthia Savage, senior director of development, City of Hope. “His outstanding business and community leadership truly captures the essence of The Spirit of Life Award.”
Born and raised in New York, with roots in the apparel industry, Rudes started in the denim business over 33 years ago on Seventh Avenue in New York City. Rudes was one of the first to pioneer the designer jean craze of the late 1970s with his first denim brand, Paris 2000. He moved from New York to Los Angeles in the early 1980s and established several apparel brands such as: Area Code and A Gold E, the denim sportswear brand, while partnering with industry icons Adriano Goldschmied and Ron Herman.
Angelina Jolie was spotted on the set of “United Love Story” in Budapest, Hungary wearing her J Brand jeans in pitch again. Angelina looks just gorgeous in these jeans; I always love her very casual dark colors that she wears.
I wonder how this movie will turn out since this is her directorial debut after all. Will you watch this movie when it comes out? I love Angelina IN the movies, but we’ll see how I feel about her directing the movie itself as I plan on watching this film when it comes out. Buy J Brand jeans at Boutique To You.
Michelle Trachtenberg attended the 7th Annual Lucky Shops VIP Night at the Metropolitan Pavilion a couple of days ago in New York City. Michelle made a statement in her bright red shoes which she matched with deep red lipstick. I can’t say I’m actually a fan of the shoes with the outfit but I like them on their own.
Michelle wore J Brand’s Agnes skinny moto zip pants in Black Sateen for the event. I have the Agnes pants in Vintage Navy Twill and they are gorgeous! They feel just like the Houlihan pants but they have back pockets and lots of zips. I will be reviewing them soon for you. Buy these pants at J Brand for $218.
Shenae Grimes arrives to walk the red carpet of Jame’s Franco’s new film, 127 Hours. Apparently, Joe Jonas will be guest starring on this weeks episode of 90210, “Mother Dearest,” where he will star as himself.
I love Shenae’s red carpet look here. She paired a fitted blazer and white shirt with a pair of J Brand 912 jeans in Air wash. I love her shoes as the main focal point of this outfit. If only she’d loose the glasses! You can buy J Brand jeans at Singer22.com.
