There’s nothing like Coach bags and a good cause to bring Hollywood together. Last night, Malin Akerman (in Mandy Coon), Ali Larter (in Dolce & Gabbana), Olivia Munn (in a Fifteen-Twenty blouse and Naven skirt), Kristen Bell (in A.L.C.), and Jenna Dewan (in Rebecca Minkoff) were among the plentiful guests invited to Hollywood producer J.J. Abrams’ company Santa Monica headquarters, Bad Robot, for a shopping party to raise money and awareness for the Children’s Defense Fund, hosted by Coach and Abrams’ wife Katie McGrath. “I’m so thrilled to be here for the cause,” Larter told InStyle.com of the organization, which supports children living in poverty’s access to education and healthcare. Meanwhile, Munn enjoyed perusing through the selection of Coach bags, including the label’s iconic Duffle Sac re-made with a special lining created specifically for the event. “I need a purse to put my other purses in,” Munn said. “There are a couple of Coach here that could work.” Good idea! See more stars at last night’s parties in the gallery.
