Last night we popped over to the The Beach at the Dream Downtown hotel for DKNY's sunglass soiree. If you can't go to the beach, might as well bring the beach to the city. The festive atmosphere was enhanced by caricature artists and vending carts filled with DKNY sunglasses, which range from $75 to $135.
Guests such as Gossip Girl's Jessica Szohr and Katie Cassidy; Twilight's Kellan Lutz, who is also now a designer; former The City star Olivia Palermo; and the eldest of the Jonas Brothers clan Kevin Jonas lounged out by the pool all decked out in DKNY threads.
We love a good summer roof deck party. Even when the most unwanted guest at an outdoor fete arrived—the dreaded summer rainstorm—the revelers simply gathered around umbrellas. Figuratively, it certainly didn't rain on DKNY's parade.
