1,500 people paid between $25 and $400 for tickets to celebrate the first Fashion's Night Out runway show, hosted by Anna Wintour, last night at Lincoln Center. We hear it was spectacular—check out the WWD aerial shot, above. The paper reports:
Gisele Bündchen led a gaggle of girls such as Karolina Kurkova, Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Coco Rocha and Lara Stone, who arrived at Lincoln Center’s Josie Robertson Plaza atop a double-decker bus. Billed as the Opening Act and Grand Finale of the open-air show, complete with show closer Naomi Campbell, the models strutted past at a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it pace, wearing floor-sweeping skirts and FNO T-shirts. In between, every working model in the business walked the circular runway — although the big names like Bündchen and Campbell walked only the inner circle, where the VIPs sat. The clothes were grouped by seven of Vogue’s most important fall trends (among them Fifties Flair and Tartan Twist).If we get our hands on a video, we'll post it. Were you there?
