In December we attended the annual VIP Cast & Crew Wrap Party hosted by the Hollywood office of the Humane Society of the United States. HSUS honored actress Charlotte Ross of “Glee” with its Animal Advocate Award.

Ms. Ross was recognized for her commitment and support of key HSUS campaigns, in particular the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act. She has also hosted and been a frequent presenter at the annual HSUS-hosted Genesis Awards. Beverly Kaskey, director of the Hollywood Office of the HSUS, presented Charlotte with a Jill Milan Venezia Gondola Clutch during the ceremony. In the photo above Charlotte (left) holds her new bag, with Jill Milan CEO Jill Fraser in the center holding our Art Deco Clutch, and standing at the far right is Maya Stewart, who designed Jill Milan’s current collection.

Also attending the Wrap Party were Fiona Gubelmann, star of the FX network’s “Wilfred,” and her husband, actor Alex Weed, who recently appeared on CBS’ “Criminal Minds.” Fiona has a number of Jill Milan bags and has carried some during red carpet appearances in Hollywood. In the photo of Fiona and Alex below she is holding her Venezia Gondola Clutch.
