The 4th Annual Pink Party
Jennifer Garner and Kate Beckinsale
The stars were out to paint the town pink at the 4th Annual Pink Party gala in Santa Monica. After making her way back from the Toronto Film Festival, host Kate Beckinsale called on leading ladies like Jennifer Garner (in Stella McCartney), Marcia Cross and Vanessa Minnillo to come together for the Women’s Cancer Research Institute at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. "It is a pleasure and a privilege to be part of such an important cause," Beckinsale (in pink Prada) said as she kicked off the evening, which included a fashion show and luxury auction, all to raise funds to help fight gynecologic and breast cancer. "It's ladies' night!"
Looking hot in a pick frock by David Meister, Marcia Cross relied on her sky-high Louboutins to help her get a better look at the models on the catwalk. "It's just so vital that we band together and try to find cures and be committed to our mammograms and prevention," the Desperate Houeswives star declared when asked about the significance of the event.
"I think men are great and I'm crazy in love with my husband, but at the end of the day I really think it's your sisters that get you through some tough times," said 90210 star Lori Loughlin, who donned a hot pink Norma Kamali frock for the occasion.
"I just came from New York Fashion Week. To come to L.A. and still continue with the fashion theme is fabulous," said Vanessa Minnillo (in Hale Bob). In addition to the fashion show, Minnillo was also ready to spend some money during the auction. "It's like a guiltless bid because it's going towards a good cause," Minnillo reasoned about any potential purchases. "That’s what I'll tell Nick when I get home!"
Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt
Though they are reality TV villains, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt showed they had hearts when they hit the red carpet. "Cancer can happen to anyone, but it doesn't really hit you until it happens to you or someone you know," mused Montag (in a Chloe top and Giambattista Valli heels) when asked why she came out to support the cause. As for Spencer? "I always support the ladies," he quipped.
