Another year, another major success for LA multi-hyphenate Elyse Walker's star-studded philanthropic Pink Party. On Saturday, the boutique owner/stylist/shoe designer rounded up some famous friends and fashion folks for a stylish soiree in Santa Monica Airport to raise over $1.7 million for the Cedars-Sinai Women's Cancer Program.

Hosted by actress Anne Hathaway—who gave a teary-eyed salute to program director Dr. Beth Y. Karlan for helping a close friend battle breast cancer—the charity bash drew in celebs like Rachel Zoe, Kate Beckinsale, Usher, Poppy Delevingne, Michael Chiklis, Brooke Burke-Charvet and more. The evening kicked off with a live auction, where high-rolling partygoers bid on luxe prizes like a fancy eight-day getaway to Puerto Los Cabos (which celeb hairstylist Chaz Dean scored for a cool $35,000), a VIP New York Fashion Week experience and a lavish vacation package to South Africa, among others.

Afterwards, guests enjoyed runway shows featuring the spring/summer 2014 collections of Barbara Bui, Chloé, J. Mendel, KaufmanFranco, Matthew Williamson, Lanvin and Valentino (all of which are stocked at Walker's shop). Throughout the night, attendees like actress Brenda Song and blogstar Emily Schuman threw their names in the hat for a host of designer handbags (Alexander Wang! Proenza Schouler! 3.1 Phillip Lim! Prada!) and jewelry in the silent auction. Before heading home, pink-wearing peeps enjoyed late-night treats from Pink's Hot Dogs and cronuts desserts from Dk's Donuts; see more from inside the rose-hued event in the gallery above.
