NEW YORK — "Who doesn't like a steal?" asked Jennifer Lopez mischievously as she rifled through the racks of designer clothes at Thursday night's 7th On Sale Online benefit. Decked out in a black lace Dolce & Gabbana frock with her honeyed locks styled in a Sixties coif, Lopez was having a Dolce Vita moment with Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. How appropriate, then, that Dolce picked up a pair of oversized Michael Kors sunglasses and passed them to her to try on. "They're too big," Lopez offered. "But they're beautiful," Dolce urged, and with that, the deal was sealed for the actress-cum-chanteuse.

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.
