Patrick Bruel et Hélène Ségara avec Sophie Gayot au concert 2013 de La Boîte à Musique des Enfoirés


Peu de spectacles réunissent tant de célébrités de la chanson, du spectacle, du cinéma et du sport sur la même scène et en même temps que le concert La Boîte à Musique des Enfoirés au bénéfice des Restos ou Restaurants du Cœur. D’Hélène Ségara, à Patrick Bruel, Garou, Jean-Jacques Goldman, Mimie Mathie, Mikael Jones, Thomas Dutronc, Michèle Laroque, Pascal Obispo pour ne nommer qu’un petit nombre (la liste complète serait trop longue), ils sont tous là, encore une fois, bénévolement pour faire remplir la salle du Palais Omnisports de Paris Bercy et apporter leur soutien à l’association créée par Coluche en 1985.


La Boîte à Musique des Enfoirés, c’est plus qu’un concert, c’est un véritable spectacle qui dure quatre heures, avec changement de décor et de costumes à chaque numéro! Et un très beau cœur en fond, bordé à l’intérieur de touches de piano.

Barbara Lazaroff with Sophie Gayot at the 2011 "An Evening on the Beach" event in Santa Monica

I really like this picture with designer Barbara Lazaroff, and co-owner of Spago Beverly Hills (currently closed for renovations). Thanks to her the old olive trees that were in the patio have been saved and will be replanted in a house of one of the charities she takes care of.

Barbara spends lots of her time raising money for charities. In fact, this photo was taken back in 2011 at “An Evening on the Beach”, a charity event supporting the mission of St. Vincent Meals on Wheels — the 2012 edition will be on July 26th. Come join us!

House of Blues general manager Dave Meyers with Sophie Gayot


As I was judging the 2012 competition of Cochon 555 in Los Angeles held today at the House of Blues Sunset Strip, I got to tour the house with general manager Dave Meyers. He made me discover “Table 945” located within the Foundation Room, the private club. It was a real discovery for me.

This table, lighted at night in blue by a lamp fixture made of empty bottles of Dan Aykroyd’s Crystal Head Vodka, is an ultra private one, on a covered terrace with a corner of view of Los Angeles. It could well be the nec plus ultra of the romantic dining rooms in LA.

Bruno Serato with Sophie Gayot


Last year when I saw the clip on CNN of chef Bruno Serato for his CNN Heroes nomination, I rushed to the restaurant, the Anaheim White House in Orange County, CA, to interview the philanthropic chef and see how I could help with his foundation Caterina’s Club.


So here I am now doing a GAYOT Dinner Series with him at the restaurant on April 26th to benefit the organization. Go to’s blog to find out all the details.

Actress Charlotte Ross with Sophie Gayot



This week, I had the pleasure of meeting actress Charlotte Ross at The Butterfly Gala – An Enchanted Evening, held at SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills — get a photo tour of the hotel at’s blog.


The GLEE star was the host of the soirée benefiting Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, attended by over 300 guests.


Charlotte is as charming and courteous as she looks good, so it made my evening even better!
