The stars lit up New York City with a night of fashion and fundraising with QVC and the Fashion Footwear Association of NY (FFANY) for their 18th annual "Shoes on Sale" to benefit Breast Cancer Research. The glamorous Waldorf Astoria welcomed many starlets, socialites and shoe lovers of all kind to an unforgettable night of shoe shopping. Fashion designers and celebrities that graced the red carpet include celebrity fashion designer Nicole Richie, finance expert and TV host Suze Orman, E! and Fashion Police host Giuliana Rancic and husband Bill Rancic, Gossip Girl's Kelly Rutherford, Real Housewife of New York's Kelly Bensimon, Miss USA Alyssa Campanella, fashion expert Jill Martin and more.

The Shoe Salon was filled with designer stations such as Jimmy Choo, Gucci, Tory Burch, to Stuart Weitzman, QVC's own Rachel Zoe and more. The starlets arrived in the hottest shoes of the season. Kelly Rutherford arrived in Christian Louboutin black pumps and a slinky black DIGS dress. Nicole Richie arrived in a Helmut Lang long sleeved black dress showcasing her wild leopard print booties from her very own exquisite House of Harlow collection.

Nicole was beaming with excitement to help the cause and check out some great footwear. "Breast cancer awareness is such an important cause and the way QVC and FFANY have helped the cause through shoe shopping is great!"

Over the past 17 years QVC has sold over 1.5 million pairs of shoes and has donated more than $35 million to breast cancer research, a QVC event always highly anticipated by many celebrities year round.
