It was lucky number 13 for the annual Super Saturday shopping extravaganza in the Hamptons benefitting the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation. Bigger than ever with some 1,600 tickets sold, shoppers like the Kardashian sisters, Kelly Rutherford, Michelle Trachtenberg, and Mariska Hargitay trolled for bargains among booths from Chloé, Derek Lam, Giorgio Armani, Elizabeth & James, Oscar de la Renta, Charlotte Ronson, and more. Even über-stylist Rachel Zoe set up shop.
Super Saturday 2010 was hosted by Donna Karan, Kelly Ripa, InStyle’s Editor-in-Chief Ariel Foxman, and Ashley Greene. We caught up with them and other celebs on the Super Saturday red carpet:

Ovarian Cancer Fundraiser
After being diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 1993, Harper’s Bazaar Editor-in-Chief Liz Tilberis, along with close friends Donna Karan and Faith Kates Kogan, president of the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF), founded Super Saturday in 1998. The fashion, beauty, and entertainment industries have rallied in support, and this year the event raised $3.4 million. Missed Super Saturday? Shop at QVC.com in “Super Saturday Live”.
