Celebs bargain-hunt in the Hamptons

Elle Super Saturday July 2006

Who doesn't love a bargain? The organizers of giant Hamptons fundraiser Super Saturday bank on this and are never disappointed. The July 29 event's co-host Kelly Ripa seemed to be the biggest shopper, arriving early and leaving late, laden with shopping bags from Marc Jacobs, Juicy, and jewelry designer Alex Woo (our spy said Ripa literally closed down the event). And it paid to hang around, as prices went down as the day wore on with designers and vendors literally handing things out at the end. Early birds, however, got first dibs at deeply discounted Marc Jacobs bags (which sold out within minutes of opening) and such deals as a $4,000 vintage Chanel suit for $250, $595 Kooba bags for $150, and Carmen Marc Valvo dresses for $200. Shoppers like Donna Karan, Molly Sims, Edie Falco, and Lorraine Bracco helped this event raise $2.4 million for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. This was Alex Woo's first year at Super Saturday, however, she looks forward to many more years supporting this amazing event.
