Kobe Bryant died in January with his daughter Gianna after a tragic helicopter crash in Calabasas, California that also claimed the lives of seven other people.

Actress Blanca Blanco held up the creation as she attended the Twelfth Annual Valentine Romance Oscar Luxury Lounge & Party thrown by Doris Bergman at the Fig & Olive in West on Saturday.
