Fashion's Night Out: sept. 10, 2009

Thursday night, as we all know, was Fashion's Night Out. F.N.O. was something that Anna Wintour had come up with as a way to boost fashions economy (helping Vogue in the long run of course) in these so called hard time. The night will deffenitly go down in fashion's history- if only for the fact that it is the largest shopping even in New York ever. Although stores were open until 11 PM, you could never have had the chance to hit all of the one you wanted to stop at and because there was just so much going on everywhere! Some people have been asking what is so special about it.
Well, more like what WASN'T special about it! Designers were coming up with special one night only limited edition designs, there were celebrities galore - shopping, meeting, signing, and even cooking. So what exactly did you miss if you weren't there? Well:

  • A Duet at Oscar De La Renta, by Barbra Walters, Sarah Jessica Parker, Betty Midler, and Oscar himself
  • Victoria Beckham signing autographs - Bergdorf
  • Isaac Mizrahi gave a lecture on fashion - Bergdorf

  • My personal all-time crush Milo Ventimiglia - Bergdorf
  • Zac Posen spray painting dresses on the models in the window - Bergdorf
  • Mark Badgley and James Mischka signing autographs - Bergdorf
  • Alright I can't write Bergdorfs anymore so Ill be refering to it as B.G.
  • Manolo Blahnik autographing at B.G.
  • My all time idols Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen serving cocktails (yes, actually serving them) - B.G.

  • Michael Uri (Mark on Ugly Betty) at Prada - Broadway
  • Kate Hudson at Stella McCartney signing Tee shirts.
  • Taylor Momsen, who I usually like, looking particularly like she is trying hard to be sluty but ended up looking like she just got out bed and is seriously hung-over. and a new long hair style which seems to have not been brushed in day. Preforming at the TeenVogue fashion show
  • Roberto Cavalli doing autographs at his own boutique
  • Kenneth Cole playing the electric guitar at Kenneth Cole - 57th Street
  • Lucy Lui shoppping at Alexander McQueen
  • Tory Burch at Tory Burch - little west 12th street (how many times has that street name confused me)(there was also a little block party in front of the store)
  • Nicky Hilton at Valentino
  • Elie Tahari at Elie Tahari
  • Francisco Costa (Calvin Klien designer) at Lord & Taylor
  • Brooklyn Decker at the Rachel Rachel Roy pop-up store in Soho
  • Graffiti artist at Rachel Rachel Roy, decorating the clothes, the store even had an old-fashioned ice cream tuck outside.
  • Rachel Zoe at Armani/Ristorante
  • Anna Wintour, EVERYWHERE - the 'ice queen' was seem at multiple stores all around the city. How she did all of that is beyond me. Just another reason why she is who I aspire to be.
So what did people where to Fashion's Night Out? Not the official Tee shirt of course (which I pretty much live in right now) which was available prior to the event in stores all around New York and online. A percent of the proceeds from the Shirt go to the National September 11th Memorial. Most shoppers, designers, and models wore their own cocktail party-approved outfits:
