Partying With Oscar : ROXBURY : Passing Up Glitz for a Style Befitting Legends of the Screen

March 23, 1994|HILLARY JOHNSON | SPECIAL TO THE TIMES

Serious glamour and no glitz prevailed at the American Red Cross benefit party at Roxbury. The few sequins in attendance were all respectfully black.

Perhaps it was the Zeitgeist-- the Holocaust; AIDS; domestic violence; Sunday's 5.3 aftershock--that caused Hollywood to adopt the profound, emotionally resonant style befitting screen legends.

Actress Tia Carrere remarked: "We're partying tonight, but everyone has to remember that there was an earthquake yesterday."

A respectably starry turnout included Sharon Stone, Mimi Rogers, Justine Bateman, Christian Slater and Juliet Mills.

The China Club Pro Jam kicked off with singer Gavin Christopher rousingly quoting Rodney King when he shouted, "We all have to learn to get along!"

The estimate of the evening's take was between $10,000 and $15,000 for the Red Cross, which could use some replenishment of its coffers after two years of disasters in Southern California.
