Jennifer Garner and Pals Celebrate Oscar!

04/19/2007 at 01:45 PM ET

As any stylish woman knows, there is more than one golden Oscar in Hollywood — we’re not talking about the coveted award, but the designer who has been turning out enviably gorgeous dresses for more than 40 years. Jennifer Garner, along with a slew of famous friends, celebrated Oscar de la Renta by hosting a benefit for the EIF Women’s Cancer Research Fund in his lavish West Hollywood boutique. Jennifer told PEOPLE that even though she “can be hard to dress because I don’t like a lot of fashion-y stuff, with these clothes, it was hard to choose. There were so many dresses I like.” But she picked her chic beaded sheath because “I just love the shape of it. I loved that it wasn’t super-tight.” A slim post-baby Amanda Peet paid homage to the man who designed her wedding dress (she tells us that she feels “very indebted to him.”), saying of her Oscar dress, “Well, this is a good dress. It hides in all the right places.” And Brooke Shields summed up the designer’s appeal when she told PEOPLE, “He knows how to dress a woman.”
