The actor brought together friends in fashion and entertainment for an afternoon of advocacy
Words by MARIE LOOK
Actor Demi Moore and the co-founders of Red Carpet Advocacy (RAD), Arianne Phillips and Carineh Martin, hosted a luncheon at Ardor in The West Hollywood Edition on Friday, Jan. 24, to honor footwear designer Alexandre Birman and his support of child advocacy nonprofit Thorn (which Moore co-founded).
As the actor’s daughters, Rumer Willis and Tallulah Willis, as well as C’s executive creative and fashion director Alison Edmond, Studio C designer Brigette Romanek, Jacqui Getty and Gia Coppola looked on, the afternoon kicked off with a toast by Phillips, Martin, Moore and Birman, who stressed the importance of the cause and expressed gratitude to everyone in attendance. Later, guests tucked into a specially curated tasting menu.
“Our lives have changed in magical ways through the growth of the internet,” Moore said in a press release. “But unfortunately these very tools are also used to enslave and abuse. Today Thorn is in 55 countries and we have partnered with homeland security, the tech industry and NGOs to make a difference amidst this crisis — 16,000 children have been rescued due to our efforts, and as we enter the next phase it is so important to engage our community in this difficult conversation. We must recognize that every child has the right to live the life of a child and to feel curious and safe as they grow up.”
