On Friday at the Beverly Hilton, Reese Witherspoon presented the “Women of Achievement” award to her friend and producing partner (Wild), Bruna Papandrea at the 12th Annual Lupus LA Hollywood Bag Ladies Luncheon hosted by Emmy Award winner Paula Abdul. Kathy Gallagher also received the “Women of Achievement” Award for her continuous support of Lupus LA.

The event kicked off with a silent auction of nearly 300 designer bags, from Stella McCartney to Chanel, donated by designers and celebrities. Guests also enjoyed a phenomenal runway show presented by Roberto Cavalli, featuring more then 40 looks from the upcoming Spring collection. The excitement continued as Bacheloralum Bob Guiney and Lupus LA Chairman Adam Selkowitz auctioned off an array of enviable items, including a fashion week package that sold for an astonishing $18,000.

It’s all for a great cause, after all.
