Covered by Guillaume Jean Lefebvre (photographer, videomaker & editor) and Niara Ijezie (journalist & Model) for Eclair Magazine, alongside numerous other media outlets, captured the stars gracing the red carpet for the occasion.

Co-hosted by Mario Lopez and Daphna E. Ziman, Founder of Children Uniting Nations and Justice for Women, the event featured stars such as Billy Zane (Titanic), Christopher McDonald (Thelma & Louise), Sofia Milos (CSI: Miami), Niecy Nash (Dhamer), TISHA CAMPBELL (My Wife and Kids), Greg Mathis Jr., MACY GRAY (singer), Anja Nissen, winner of The Voice Australia, Carlo Mendez (actor and brother of Eva Mendez), and many more."

The event kicked off with the traditional red carpet photo session and interviews, followed by a reception cocktail and the screening of the Oscars ceremony at the sprawling property in Beverly Hills. The atmosphere was congenial, with attendees expressing their heartfelt reasons for being there. Daphna E. Ziman, Founder of Children Uniting Nations and Justice for Women, emphasized the significance of the event, sponsored by Middle Eastern royalty, stating, "It's a necessity. If we didn't do this and if you weren't here, nobody would be talking about it. We need to stop using women and children as weapons of war or shields." She added, "I would also like women to stop sexualizing themselves to please men. We are powerful and don't need that."

Throughout the evening, guests shared their thoughts on the importance of the cause, highlighting the need for awareness and action. Their presence underscored the collective commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of vulnerable individuals worldwide.

The event also featured a fashion show by Israeli designer Yaniv Persy, who presented his collection of women's dresses, showcasing elegance and style. The evening concluded with a private concert, where stars like Macy Gray mesmerized the audience with soulful renditions of their most cherished songs, fostering an atmosphere of unity and support.

Among the attendees were various artists, athletes, former NFL player and Super Bowl champion Terrell T.J. Ward, Will Anderson Jr., Matthew JUDON, as well as producers, Emmy Awards artists, TV personalities, journalists, and vogue influencers, all contributing to the success of the event and its noble cause.

An opportunity to look back at some snapshots from the red carpet. Additionally, it was a heartfelt cause for the guests, who revealed the advice they would give to today's youth and aspiring artists, with the overarching theme being "stay true to yourself", that you are enough, and to remain humble. This was also the advice they would give to their younger selves. Not forgetting a fashion note to discover which designer stood behind certain outfits worn by celebrities, which were absolutely stunning for this occasion.
