EIF Women's Cancer Research Fund's 16th Annual "An Unforgettable Evening" Presented By Saks Fifth Avenue - Red Carpet

Saks Fifth Avenue presented a truly unforgettable evening last week: in fact, it was even titled as such.

The “An Unforgettable Evening” gala raised funds for the EIF Women’s Cancer Research Fund and honored Carolina Herrera and Kylie Minogue.

Honorary Chairs Rita Wilson, Tom Hanks, Kate Capshaw and Steven Spielberg, along with EIF Women’s Cancer Research Fund co-founders Kelly Chapman Meyer, Anne Douglas, Quinn Ezralow, Marion Laurie and Jaime Tisch welcomed guests to a haute evening at the Beverly Wilshire, which was presented by late night host Chelsea Handler.

The evening included cocktails, dinner and an awards presentation. Grammy® Award-winning artist Minogue accepted the 2013 Courage Award for her fight against breast cancer and dedication to raising awareness for the disease. The Nat King Cole Award was presented to renowned fashion designer Herrera for her charitable works and contributions to the EIF Women’s Cancer Research Fund, including her participation in the 2012 Saks Fifth Avenue Key to the Cure campaign. Honoree Herrera also dressed many of the evening’s notable attendees including Rita Wilson, Kate Capshaw, Kyle Minogue, Chelsea Handler, Julianne Hough, and Angie Harmon.

The evening closed with a special musical performance by Grammy® Award-winning artist Bruno Mars
who sang a five-song set including hits “Runaway Baby,” a medley of “Money,” and “Billionaire,” along with “Locked
Out of Heaven,” and “Just The Way You Are.”
