The 4th annual Diamonds and Denim charity fundraiser

Who took top-dressed honors, according to the man of the hour?

The 4th annual Diamonds and Denim charity fundraiser


On Thursday, Cole and Heidi Hamels threw their fourth annual Diamonds and Denim charity fundraiser, benefiting education in Philadelphia and Malawi, Africa, at Vie, on North Broad.

Lots of Cole's teammates (and some former "Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" contestants) helped the Hamelses raise cash, and they did well by the high-class yet casual theme. Jonathan Papelbon rocked a fly rhinestone bow tie. John Mayberry Jr. GQ-styled in mustard pants and a navy button-down. Mike Adams donned a fly blue-plaid blazer with matching blue-and-white sneaks.

But who took top-dressed honors, according to the man of the hour?

"Kevin Frandsen," Cole said, referring to Frandsen's spectacular bedazzled loafers. "I saw him in the locker room and I didn't think he would actually wear them. He said, 'I will wear these for one event and one event only.' "
