Celebs take it Global

DioGuardi hosts Global Action Forum Gala

Hosted by multihyphenate Kara DioGuardi, the Global Action Forum Gala brought philanthropists and advocates together Friday night at the Beverly Hilton.

First up, the Global Action Media Award went to hairstylist-photographer Michael Angelo for his “Lipstick Portraits.”

“I decided if I was going to do something superficial like highlighting supermodels for a living, I need to decide how to give something back,” Angelo noted.

Receiving the Global Action Youth Leadership Award, Miley Cyrus seemed as psyched by the presenter as by the honor: “I never thought I would get an award from Hilary Duff. This is a dream come true.”

The night featured several performances, and after Katharine McPhee sang, DioGuardi joked, “Thank you for those kind remarks Katharine. It’s too bad you’re so ugly. It’s probably really held you back.”

DioGuardi also performed, which forced presenter Joely Fisher to quip, “She’s a showoff is what she is. I’m so drunk right now.”
