Stone gushes as auctioneer

Shirtless men offering cocktails at the door; this is one event trend we just love.

It was all about skin at the annual Macy's & American Express Passport Gala to fight AIDS.

"I love my job!" the evening's host, Sharon Stone, chortled, as she snuggled a male model riding a pink Vespa. Stone wowed the massive crowd filling the bleachers in the Barker Hangar last week, looking sleek and sexy in a form-fitting bright yellow embroidered sheath. She skillfully auctioned off items that brought in nearly $100,000 for the cause.

Spotted at the before VIP cocktail party and after dessert festivities and on the runway, too, were party girls Brooke Burke, Bai Ling and Traci Bingham, along with "American Idol" judge Randy Jackson. Last season's "Apprentice" loser Katrina Campins modeled a slinky black leather dress and filled the night's position of the latest person in a never-ending string of people who make us wonder, "Why is this person a celebrity?"
