Photos: Film Noir and Fab Fashion Helps Heart Charity Stay in the Black

Guests were allowed to wear only black and white to this Saturday fundraiser at Seven Degrees.

On Saturday evening at Seven-Degrees, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Velma Kelly were on hand in their formal best to help raise funds for the charity organization Guard a Heart.

Allowed to wear only black and white, about 400 guests attended the Film Noir Black & White Ball to raise awareness about heart disease in the United States.

Dr. Larisa Gruer came dressed as Velma Kelly, the character from the musical Chicago. Gruer uses holistic techniques in her practice, and treats several patients with heart issues. Her father passed away from heart disease.

"I've been dealing with [people close to me with heart disease] for most of my life," said Gruer. "Guard a Heart is one of my preferred charities."

A special event during the evening was a "Ladies of Shanghai" fashion show, featuring the latest works by Laguna Beach designer Katharine Story.

Marilyn Monroe impersonator Grace Richardson and singer/guitarist Joel Reese provided entertainment.
