After a 17 year tradition in NY in the Hamptons, Super Saturday launched in LA for the first time. This shopping extravaganza at the Santa Monica Barker Hangar is the largest and oldest charity funding research on ovarian cancer in the U.S. 100% of their proceeds go to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF). The event was hosted by celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe and her husband Rodger Berman, and model/actress Molly Sims and her husband Scott Stuber. From 11 – 5 on Saturday, May 17, the gorgeous stylishly dressed LA crowd shopped til they dropped. Every imaginable designer was on hand with majorly slashed prices, from Versace, Dash, Trina Turk, Tommy Hilfiger, James Purse, Ann Taylor and Joes Jeans.
Families were abound as well as numerous celebs shopping all around. Billy Bush was with his family as I shopped, while Rachel Zoe had her kids in toe and at one point her son just plopped down on the floor, not getting up. Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger looked amazing as she and Giuliana Rancic milled about as camera crews followed their every move. Lisa Rinna looked perfectly made up as she walked the red carpet. We ran into so many friends that it became a SUPER social Saturday success.
DreamDry was there to spruce up your hair, and S.H.A.P.E.S Brow Bar was packed with people getting a facelift with their new brow shaping. An incredible healthy lunch of asparagus, salmon, risotto, and more was provided from Lexington Social House and numerous snacks were ready for your shopping break, like my favorite Brownie Brittle and Pasta Chips. The bars were flowing and guests loved posing with the Phenom jet after spinning the wheel to see if they won some Vegas treats from The Venetian and The Palazzo.
I bought a special, hip pair of jeans with sexy rips and front ankle zippers from Hudson for $50, Kenneth Cole black ‘hairy’ slip on loafers for $75, numerous baby gifts for next to nothing, Kitson books and baby gifts for half off, a cell phone bullet charger for $15, Happy socks for $6, Soul Cycle sweats for $35, hot sexy tops for $30, O’Neil tanks for $10, and the list goes on. Girlfriends of mine were buying $1000 dresses for $100 and some even $30.
Kids were having so much fun as they participated in arts and crafts activities, cupcake decorating, face painting, and filling bags of candy. We loved seeing all of the pets roaming around with their owners. Beautiful people were mingling everywhere, just trying on clothes and enjoying their lunch in the sun.
Did you know Super Saturday New York was founded in 1998 by fashion designer Donna Karan, and late OCRF President and Editor-In-Chief of Harper’s Bazaar, Liz Tilberis? The first Super Saturday event raised $200,000 —and last year, in 2013, this amazing event raised nearly $3.7 million, the most ever, towards vital ovarian cancer research programs. All proceeds support the OCRF’s mission of supporting ovarian cancer research by the nation’s top scientists in their efforts to end this terrible disease.
