Stars flooded into the Pacific Design Center on Melrose Avenue for the Baby2Baby 10th anniversary gala presented by Paul Mitchell in West Hollywood on Saturday.

Jennifer Garner, Jessica Alba, Ciara and Kate Hudson led a cavalcade of celebrities who turned out to celebrate the Los Angeles-based charity as it rounded off its first decade.

For her latest night on the town Jennifer, 49, cut a stylish figure in a strapless black gown that was elegantly cinched in to emphasize her enviably trim waistline.

Wearing her luxurious brown hair down, she added a splash of dazzle to the look with a shimmering necklace and a pair of drop earrings, plus a pop of color with a green handbag.

Her billowing skirt featured a slit up one side, allowing her to flash her toned legs and show off her black ankle-strap heels as she made her way around the event.

Meanwhile Ciara emphasized her sensational figure by arriving at the Baby2Baby gala in an elaborate brown ensemble that featured a see-through top.

The collared blouse was sheer enough to offer a glimpse of her walnut-colored bra, which matched the busily designed skirt portion of the outfit.
