The Boom Boom Room Returns for the Christopher + Dana Reeve Foundation

Peter Davis

"I don't think I've ever been to the Boom Boom Room when it's daylight," said Eugenia Gonzalez Ruiz-Olloqui at The Reeve Champions Summer Party. "It's so pretty with all the light and this amazing view." Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the chic cocktail soiree was hosted by The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, Dior Beauty  (think: glam gift bag) along with actor Hayden Christensen, Linda Wells, Alexandra Reeve Givens, Matthew Reeve, Elisa Lipsky-Karasz and Walking Papers author/Clark's Botanicals  founder Francesco Clark. Christensen donned a casual plaid shirt  -- the uniform of designers Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra who were there, along with other fashionable folks like Peter Som, Rafe Totengco ("Cocktails at the Boom Boom Room, supporting Francesco and hanging with my besties. How can I not have a good time," Rafe said), Marcus Teo, Rachel Heller, Douglas Marshall, Kristian Laliberte, Joey Jalleo, Chris McNally and Brit beauty Louise Roe who told me about Plain Jane, her makeover show for the CW (I am so obsessed with Roe's amazing gold metallic nail polish). "I'll be making over mostly 20-something shy girls," Roe explained. "It should be a lot of fun and a bit of work too." Clark held court and was overwhelmed by all the good vibes. "I've never felt so much love and support in one place," he gushed. "That room in the sky is beaming from the generosity of such dynamos as Linda Wells, Hayden Christensen, Costello Tagliapietra, Peter Som, and FGI president, Margaret Hayes. Who says fashion and beauty have to be one-dimensional? It makes my heart glow!"
