Saks Fifth Avenue hosted a benefit for Fashion Targets Breast Cancer with a flock of big fashion names mingling with shoppers in the store. We spotted supermodel Gisele Bundchen, tireless photographer Patrick McMullan, Calvin Klein, Diane Von Furstenberg, Vera Wang and Christy Turlington, among others.

Karin Bacon Events added flourish to the party with four stiltwalkers outside in elaborate costumes designed by Mirena Rada using the charity's target logo. Inside, Bacon stationed makeup artists giving shoppers temporary target tattoos, and Sonnier & Castle provided various foods on the different floors, everything from pretzels and wraps to Belgian frites. Funniest sight: Betsey Johnson and her crew hijacked one of the bars and took a few bottles to their meet-and-greet area.
