Drew Barrymore is following in the footsteps, if that’s the word, of Julia Roberts, Helena Bonham-Carter, Elizabeth Jagger, Emma Thompson and Miranda Richardson by deciding to let her underarms go au naturel. She let everyone see the results this week at the Marc Jacobs show when she raised her arm in her sleeveless outfit. This may have something to do with the cooling off period she is currently going through with her beau, Fabrizio Moretti. Maybe she’s just letting it rest for a while.
Two of Hollywood’s most glamorous couples — the beautiful Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas and Richard Gere and his lovely wife, Carey Lowell — were the stars of the evening at the Red Ball at The Pierre. This is the party founded by Marty Richards in honor of his late wife, Mary Lea Johnson, the Johnson & Johnson heiress, to benefit The Children’s Advocacy Center and The Mary Lea Johnson Richards Institute at NYU Medical Center. Elaine Johnson Wold, Mary Lea’s sister, was the honorary co-chairman along with Zeta-Jones. Christine Baranski, the mistress of ceremonies, looked sensational in a red satin va-va-voom gown. “Les Cagelles” from the Broadway hit “La Cage aux Folles” performed riotously. They had better. After all, Marty is the producer.
