Among the slew of celebs, we caught sight of Rosario Dawson, Olivia Munn, Roselyn Sanchez and adorable Mario Lopez who was the evening’s emcee. He introduced ELF founder, Eva Longoria who spoke about the Foundation’s cultural-relevant programs that help women reach their goals. Eva herself is the perfect role model — among the many hats she wears, the award-winning actress is a producer, entrepreneur & philanthropist. A long-time champion of women, the Latino community and youth with special needs, She is National Spokesperson for Padres Contra el Cancer. There is nothing this lovely Latina cannot do!

And last, but not least, we attended a charming cocktail reception for Dr. Sanda Moldovan, and her new tome “Heal Up!” Sanda has developed seven vital ways to heal your body, which are derived from nature’s own resources. She teaches you how to rely on Mother Nature as the ultimate healer. Some of the celebs atop the roof of the Montage Hotel included Brian Dorlet (The Hills) and award winning director Chris Livingston. We were even treated to an oxygen elixir bar.
