Speaking of the Metropol, Canadian rock star Bryan Adams will hold an invitation-only gig at Dolce & Gabbana's show venue on Sunday evening to promote his new acoustic album "11," which comes out later this month. The event is the third of 11 concerts that Adams is playing in 11 different European cities in 11 days.
ZEN PALETTE: There were plenty of pastel suits and black Mercedes-Benz's clogging the driveway of the Beverly Hills Hotel on Wednesday, but it wasn't a typical Ladies Lunch hosted by the Women's Guild of Cedars-Sinai. For starters, the guest of honor was Donna Karan, clad in a black cashmere tank dress and a matching necklace from Namibia. "I was just here," said the designer, referring to the Oscar Week Havana Nights party she attended at the hotel. "New York, L.A., New York, L.A. — I can't keep it straight." Karan was receiving the Guild's Woman of the 21st Century award for her creation of the Urban Zen Initiative with the goal of bringing Eastern wellness to Western medicine hospitals. "I've always dressed people, but now I feel it's time to address them, to get into their hearts and souls," she said. "I think we all realize material things are not where it's at." By Karan's side was Demi Moore, who, along with husband Ashton Kutcher, is partnering with Karan for the Spirituality for Kids initiative. Also sharing in the glow were Catherine Keener, Emily Deschanel, Rashida Jones, Elizabeth Perkins, Becki Newton and Molly Sims. Before Karan took part in a panel with her "teachers," physician and wellness guru Deepak Chopra and yogis Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman Yee, the noisy room experienced a rare moment of silence when Saidman Yee led the nearly 400 guests in a mini meditation — during which only a few cell phones rang.
