La Lopez wasn't the only big spender sifting through the extensive array of designer bargains at Skylight Studios. Some 400 fashion, society and Hollywood types — including Ralph Lauren, Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan, Scarlett Johansson, Carolina Herrera, Chloë Sevigny, Michael Kors, Oscar and Annette de la Renta, Ellen Pompeo and Joy Bryant — dug deep into their pockets for some retail therapy and a good cause — to benefit the CFDA-Vogue AIDS Fund. The night raised over $1.6 million.
In the cashmere department, David Lauren held up two bright Polo Ralph Lauren cable-knit cashmere sweater against Lauren Bush's rosy complexion, before bagging them both. Diane von Furstenberg bought some Eames chairs, while Lopez lost a bidding war with Damon Dash over a sumptuous Ralph Lauren bed, which Dash bought for his daughter, Ava, for $4,000.
Johansson arrived on the arm of Calvin Klein's Francisco Costa with the added boon of his buyers' coupons. "I have Francisco's, so I am going to spend, and I need a couch," she said. In the end, the blonde actress scooped up a Moschino duffel jacket, cashmere sweaters and a blanket by Ralph Lauren, which had mistakenly been sold twice. No worries, though, since Polo promised to send her another one on Friday.
