Kim Kardashian and Kanye West — whose engagement is imminent, according to pal Ryan Seacrest — headed to Cipriani Wall Street in lower Manhattan Monday night for the Angel Ball, the star-studded annual fundraiser which raised a whopping $3.7 million this year for cancer research.
But Kim’s musician beau wasn’t the only one near and dear to her in attendance: Her reality star BFF Jonathan Cheban (who recently returned from Miami, where he shot Kourtney & Kim Take Miami), and Command PR exec Simon Huck were also at the soiree.
Hosted by songwriter-socialite Denise Rich, the gala featured performances by Natalie Cole and Smokey Robinson, and Nelly and DJ Cassidy, drew an impressive guest list as usual.
Gala-goers included Gerard Butler, Nelly, David Arquette, Robert Buckley, Solange Knowles, Jane Seymour & James Keach, Bar Rafaeli, Ashanti, Estelle, Eva Cavalli, Nile Rogers, Stephanie Pratt, Wendy Williams, Irina Shayk, Jessica Stam, Lorraine Schwartz, Joan Collins, Clive Davis, Russell Simmons, Erin Heatherton, Star Jones, Ivana Trump, Shontelle, Tiki Barber, Simon de Pury, Stephen Baldwin, Alexis Welch, Kimberly Chandler, Domingo Zapata, Donny Deutsch, Sonja Morgan, Jena Sims, Mohammed Al Turki, Prince Fahad Al Saud, Tamara Ecclestone, Liz Gaspari, Sam Englebardt, Dr. Stephen D. Nimer, and Suleika Jaouad.
This year’s gala honored three individuals for their outstanding philanthropic contributions to cancer research: Bonnie Pfeifer Evans, Trustee of The Charles Evans Foundation and Lester and Sue Smith, Founders of The Lester & Sue Smith Foundation.
