Using her considerable influence and soft power, Kim Kardashian was able to convince organizers to make a significant change to the Baby2Baby Gala lineup. The move involved replacing Meghan Markle with someone known as MC, and it created quite a buzz within the celebrity community.
The Baby2Baby Gala 2023, a prestigious charity event, saw the participation of some of the most prominent personalities in the industry. This annual event raises funds to distribute diapers and baby clothes to underprivileged children. Held at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood on a Saturday evening, it aimed to unite celebrities in their common goal: generating financial support for poor children.
Kim Kardashian, who received The Giving Tree award at the previous year’s gala, attended the event in style, wearing a black sheer floral lace dress, jumpsuit and matching heels. She shared the stage with Zoe Saldana, Olivia Wilde and her husband Marco Perego, expressing her joy at returning to the gala in a widely shared video clip.
A highlight of the gala was the presentation of The Giving Tree Award to an individual who exemplifies and embodies the principles of the organization. Sahayak received the award this year and expressed his gratitude and admiration for the organization in a statement, saying: “I am delighted to be part of this extraordinarily special evening with all of you. I cannot express my gratitude enough. great admiration for this organization; she has all my faith and admiration. »
The celebrity guest list included Gwyneth Paltrow, Vanessa Bryant, Demi Lovato, Katherine McPhee, Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, Janet Jackson, Nikki Reed, Michelle Monaghan, Heidi Klum, Alessandra Ambrosio, Camila Alves McConaughey, Chrissy Teigen, Sarah Hyland, and Zoé Saldana, among others.
However, Meghan Markle was notably absent from the Baby2Baby gala, despite her close relationship with Katherine McPhee and her husband, who is Prince Harry’s surrogate father. This exclusion adds to an already difficult week for Meghan, since her absence from the Grammy Awards and the celebration of Leonardo DiCaprio’s birthday had also been noted. Given her keen interest in philanthropic activities, Meghan likely planned to be part of this gathering of influential women representing various sectors of the entertainment industry.
It’s worth mentioning that Meghan and Harry attended a Baby2Baby event in August 2020, but their attendance reportedly only lasted about 15 minutes and was primarily for a photo shoot. Subsequently, they ceased all affiliation with the event.
To secure invitations to events of this magnitude in the future, Meghan and Harry may need to significantly increase their visibility in philanthropic efforts. However, Emma Grede, a Baby2Baby board member and Kardashian-Jenner collaborator on projects like SKIMS with Kim and Good American with Khloe, appears hesitant to form a partnership with Meghan unless she sees it as a strategic decision for the company. . Getting a place on stage alongside the list of influential women at the Baby2Baby Gala might have been a difficult feat for Meghan to achieve.
