The most fashionable duo in sports, per GQ, is Russell Westbroook and James Harden, who grace the cover of the mag’s March issue in gloriously unique style. They were at the recent grand re-opening of Tom Ford’s Galleria boutique, a party co-hosted by Westbrook and his wife, Nina. A fun crowd was dressed to-the-nines — several guests in Tom Ford, naturally — and happily shopped the minimalist space for a cause, as a portion of proceeds benefited the Westbrooks’ Why Not? Foundation, which empowers youth in disadvantaged and underserved communities.


Ahead of opening its Galleria boutique, Paris-based Ba&Sh previewed its spring collection at a pop-up — complete with French vino and a macaron station! — at the C. Baldwin Hotel. Hostesses Linsay Radcliffe, Kelley Scofield and CityBook’s own Kate Stukenberg welcomed a well heeled crowd to the event, which marked the brand’s foray into Texas.

Meanwhile, Valobra Master Jewelers hosted a dapper, dudes-only to-do, featuring rare bottles of scotch and whiskey, along with a primo cigar bar. In the middle of the pavilion erected in front of his new Westheimer boutique was a 2020 Ferrari F8 Tributo, on display for the first time in Houston.

And Houston Tri Delta Philanthropies’ sixth annual shopping event, The Sale, raised more than $250,000 for MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital. One morning featured a “breakfast and bubbly” event with remarks by Tri Delta alumni and cancer physician Zsila Sadighi, herself a pediatric brain tumor survivor; another spotlighted blogger Alex Snodgrass, whose new cookbook The Defined Dish is a national best-seller.
