Jessica Simpson and her parents were honored by Operation Smile, the world-wide medical charity, Friday night in Beverly Hills. Jessica is a Celebrity Ambassador for the organization which provides free surgeries for children with severe facial deformities.
Jessica's best bud, hairdresser Ken Paves, was the singer's escort for the Eighth Annual Operation Smile Gala at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. It was her first public appearance since the devastating loss of her dog Daisy. The Malti-poo was killed by a coyote last month.
Debbie Rowe, the mother of two of Michael Jackson's children, also lost a dog to a coyote.
