Celebrity designer and Haute 100 New York member Donna Karan hosted the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund’s (OCRF) annual fundraiser on Saturday, July 30, along with TV personality Kelly Ripa and actress Emma Roberts in the Hamptons. The Super Saturday event was the 14th annual, and was successful in raising a well-needed $3.5 million to fund research for ovarian cancer, which causes over 15,000 deaths a year in the US alone.
The gracious hostess and her crew brought out some big names, including Kris Humphries, Rachel Zoe, Chord Overstreet, Abigail Breslin, Kelly Rutherford, Matthew Settle, Edie Falco, La La Anthony, Mark Feuerstein, Christa Miller, Gayle King, Beth Ostrosky Stern, Christy Turlington Burns, Karlie Kloss, Stephanie March, Star Jones, Lisa Rinna, and Kyle MacLachlan – who all come out to support the cause.
The event’s biggest draw, however, was the annual high fashion garage sale, where over 200 designers like Karan donated around 80% of their surplus to the cause and offered the items at exclusive discounts, with sales going directly to the charity. In addition to the sale, guests mingled and enjoyed carnival rides, games, raffles, fortune tellers, manicures, and families (including Karan and her little ones) took in a festive carnival atmosphere.
