Stars step up and get decked out in their seersucker, linen, sun dresses and straw hats for b. michael America’s BLUE event. The fashion soirée was held at the International Polo Club of Palm Beach in honor of National Autism Awareness Month and to bring the autism community together as one strong voice to address this urgent global health crisis.

Famed original Supreme’s member Mary Wilson entertained the crowd, singing the national anthem.
