One of Hollywood’s hottest couples — “The Vampire Diaries’” Ian Somerhalder and his wife, “Twilight” star Nikki Reed — flew to Chicago Dec. 3 to host a bash for Somerhalder’s namesake foundation at Galleria Marchetti (825 W. Erie). Co-chaired by local jewelry designer Graziela Kaufman, the benefit featured an auction with items fit for the stars: a visit to “The Vampire Diaries’” Lockwood Mansion set in Georgia, and a New York Fashion Week package presented by supermodel Karolina Kurkova. The night’s proceeds benefit the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, which provides programs and services to positively impact the planet and its creatures.
