It was time for Tom and Dom at socialite Jacqui Cohen's 18th Annual Face the World Foundation Annual Gala. The Army and Navy heiress looked positively festive in a gorgeous ruffled orange gown as she escorted none other than Sir Tom Jones down the driveway and into her lavish Point Grey home. The 60's something sex symbol, who is both a friend and Honorary Patron to the foundation, was dressed in a stunning black ensemble complete with a diamond studded silk tie. The well-heeled and breast-dressed crowd sipped Dom Perignon champagne and mingled during the reception before heading in to dine on fabulous five-star service and food from David Aisenstat's The Shore Club. Media personality Vicki Gabereau and musician Jim Byrnes served as the evening's MCs. Later, Sir Tom took to the stage in person to entertain. I'm not telling if any panties were thrown - but let's just say - it's not unusual.
