On Saturday night in an airplane hanger in Santa Monica, shop owner Elyse Walker gathered a diverse group of celebrities and fashion industry folk for her eighth annual Pink Party to benefit the Cedars-Sinai Women's Cancer Program.
The night began with an auction hosted by NCIS star/budding standup Michael Weatherly which featured big-ticket items like a year-long Porsche lease, an original piece of art by Retna and dinner for four at 13 pricey LA eateries like Mr Chow, Katsuya and Cut. The celebs in the crowd, including Michael Chiklis, Olivia Munn, Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann, sat pretty quietly during this period of time, perhaps preferring to donate their cash privately.
Then came the fashion, with runway shows from local designers like Kelly Wearstler as well as from Valentino, Stella McCartney and Chloé—all labels carried at Elyse Walker, of course. Afterwards, guests took advantage of an on-site Pink's Hot Dogs stand (Chiklis, for one, likes his hot dogs), hit up the open bar and perused the silent auction which featured designer jewelry and handbags. Speaking of: Booth Moore, good luck on that Reed Krakoff tote. Check out what everyone wore, above.
