Shopping wasn't an option, but Tommy Lee Jones, Gloria Estefan, Julio Iglesias, Creed's Scott Stapp and Don Shula were out in force anyway for Friday's Fashion Destination at the Shops at Bal Harbour. For the first time, the shopping center shut down early to throw a party and Ralph Lauren fashion show for 2,000 guests. Each store was decorated with accents for individual countries -- pythons and monkeys for Africa, Moulin Rouge-type dancers and cheese for France. A sit-down dinner was served at Neiman Marcus, and Kool & The Gang performed during dessert at Saks Fifth Avenue. The event raised more than $1 million for the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis. Founded by former NFL Hall of Famer star Nick Buoniconti after his son, Marc, was paralyzed in a college football game, the organization specializes in spinal research and rehabilitation.
