| January 8, 2013 | Parties National

THE PARTY A sprawling Kendrick Bangs Kellogg-designed estate in La Jolla Farms provided a mod backdrop for the third annual Heels2Heal Fashion Gala, benefiting Miracle Babies, a nonprofit offering support to families with newborns in intensive care. THE SCENE A Spanish guitarist serenaded guests as they walked down the red carpet to the poolside patio decked out in Hollywood Regency style (think sparkling chandeliers, chaise lounges, mirrored coffee tables and pops of Tiffany blue). Tequila tastings and gourmet Latin fare (sea bass ceviche and fresh tortillas) from San Diego’s finest chefs kicked up the flavor, while DJ Shine kept the energy high with hip mixes. THE HIGHLIGHTS Compassion met fashion when Christian Siriano, winner of the fourth season of Project Runway, dazzled the crowd with a show of 14 frocks from his spring/summer 2013 collection. The night’s big auction item, a trip to Africa, helped bring the evening’s total to nearly $100,000. Photography by Tim Hardy
