Tonight is Billabong USA's 2nd Annual Design for Humanity event at Avalon/Spider Club in Hollywood, featuring music, fashion and art show and music by MGMT and DJ Steve Aoki, with proceeds to The Surfrider Foundation. The fashion show includes one-of-a-kind bikinis designed by Charlotte Ronson, Lisa Kline, Jenny Han, Cory Kennedy, and the two shown above by Joy Bryant and Amber Valletta. Per FWD: "Amber Valletta designed a split bandeau halter paired with a skirted tropic pant with side ruching detail while Charlotte Ronson paired her striped triangle top with a tropic boy bottom. Joy Bryant fashioned a floral tri-halter bikini top paired with a tropical bottom with sequin trim detail underneath a flirty polka dot detachable skirt." Online ticket sales are sold out, but you can go to the club around 9:30pm tonight and try and buy at the box office if other ticket holders don't show.
