Mario Lopez might not have won the contest in Dancing With The Stars, but won the heart of everyone when he lead Debbie Reynolds onto the stage performing a two step at a Tribute to June Allyson at the El Portal Theatre. Gloria De Haven, Margaret O'Brien and Jane Russell were among the stars who came to pay homage to the late Ms. Allyson, who was one of the undisputed original industry icons.
Bernardo Puccio, chose to design the Solarium, because he was taken by the wonderful shadows coming through the arched French windows, and the textured stone walls and inlaid flooring. He created an intimate space, where one might enjoy a romantic supper or cocktails, away from the adjoining grandeur of the adjacent living area. He hosted a special group of socialites for a personal tour, and later took the Ladies Who Lunch to Morton's, where he transformed the mundane tables into a lavish Fall inspired banquet setting. Another amazing feat for our talented pal, Bernardo.
