Last night, we headed over to Barneys on Madison Avenue to do the one thing we've always wanted to do: hang out with Keith Richards. And okay, we didn't hang out with him per se, but he was there, and so were we, and so was his beautiful blonde family. Like his wife Patti Hansen, who was launching her line of cross-body handbags called Hung on U (clever, right?) with model daughters Alexandra and Theodora Richards in tow.

The launch also served as a preview for a bunch of one-of-a-kind Hung on U bags, which are up for auction on CharityBuzz to benefit the Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation. Guest designers of these babies included everyone from the Richards family, Simon Doonan (his had hair fringe on it), Christian Louboutin, DVF, and a few unlikely participants, one of them being Zach Galifianakis. Why not?

Have a look at a few of the bags in our gallery below: The ones for the CharityBuzz auction are hanging on see-through torsos, and the regular Hung on U collection designed by Patti Hansen, Molly Madden, and Debi Koppel can be seen draping over the backs and butts of the fabric mannequins. To view the entire collection that's up for auction, head here.
