Arnold and Maria Support Daughter Katherine at FNO
By Krista Wick
Following in her mother's altruistic footsteps, Katherine Schwarzenegger hosted a soiree for Fashion's Night Out at Diane von Furstenberg in L.A. Thursday night, drawing out a sizable crowd (including her famous mom and pop) for her organization of choice, Best Buddies International.
Katherine perused rack after glamorous rack of DVF designs, scoring some fab finds while doing her part to support a good cause. The young Schwarzenegger chose DVF as the center for the event because she feels Diane embodies "an overall empowering woman," who applies her extraordinary talents to her personal life as well. "I think that she's done so much in her career and she's so beyond successful, so nice, so warm hearted, she does great things for charity and I'm just happy to be here partnering with Best Buddies."
The 21-yr-old also isn't shy to bring up another one of her icons, mother Maria. "I couldn't do any of this without her," Katherine gushes. "My mom and I are really, really close and we do everything together so I'm just happy that I can spend so much time with my mom."
Also in attendance was father Arnold and brother Patrick, who were all smiles as they made the rounds at the event.
