Last night, Fashion’s Night Out: The Show—billed as New York’s largest public fashion show—took place in Manhattan. By the numbers, the extravaganza included 171 looks, 150 top models, nine acts, and seven trends—all in all, just enough fashion to whip New Yorkers into frenzy and compel them to shop on Fashion’s Night Out this Friday, which was, after all, the aim of the event.
For the public, there was plenty to see. Supermodels such as Gisele Bündchen, Karolina Kurkova, Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio all arrived via double-decker bus, to the tune of Lady Gaga’s Telephone. Celebrities such as Blake Lively, Ashley Tisdale, Leighton Meester and Olivia Palermo sat in the audience, alongside designers such as Donna Karan, Tommy Hilfiger, Carolina Herrera and Vera Wang. Fall’s biggest trends were showcased, including Fifties Flair, Tartan Twist, Rock Chic and Jazz-Age Cool. Hip-hop star Pharrell Williams performed for the masses. And to finish: original supermodel Naomi Campbell closed the show.
All in all, whether you were lucky enough to attend, or you just watched the live broadcast on CBS, the event undoubtedly has you excited for Fashion’s Night Out. Only one question remains: do you plan to shop!?
