SILVERLAKE—Jenette Bras is having an informal modeling event to benefit a good cause. On Sunday, the store will serve up champagne and new looks, and sales from the event will have a charitable twist: 20% of those dollars will be used in conjunction with Glamour Gowns, an event that provides prom dresses and accessories to underprivileged high school girls in LA. Specifically, your purchases end up providing strapless bras, since those aren't usually provided. Awwww! Event is 5pm to 7pm. 4308 Melrose Ave. [Racked Inbox]
