Los Angeles: Cladded in their most stunning threads, Jennifer Garner, Kate Hudson, Jessica Alba, Matthew McConaughey, Christina Aguilera gathered to support a charitable organization at the 2016 Baby2Baby Gala.

During the event, Garner, 44, was honoured with the Baby2Baby Giving Tree Award for her ongoing dedication to children in need around the world, reported Entertainment Tonight.

“My mom grew up dirt poor with 10 siblings, no running water and no electricity in dustbowl depression in Oklahoma. I grew up one generation, one holler away from poverty,” Garner said during her acceptance speech.

“If you tell the world that we are gathering here tonight all dressed up like prom… They might think we’re crazy. But the truth is, I’ve seen this message in action. The tiniest thing can tip the balance from past hope to chance,” she added.

The actress rocked the ceremony with her sleeveless navy floor-length gown, while Alba looked gorgeous in a sheer black long dress.
