Blake Lively and Roger Federer were Anna Wintour’s guests of honour at Fashion’s Big Night Out last night (07.09.10).
The ‘Gossip Girl’ actress and the tennis champion were given seats next to the editor of US Vogue at the prestigious event, held in New York’s Lincoln Center.
They were joined in the audience by the likes of Leighton Meester, Julianne Moore, Serena Williams, Donna Karan, Michael Kors, Tommy Hilfiger, Lazaro Hernandez and Carolina Herrera, who watched the models parade on the complicated in-the-round runway.
Gisele Bundchen was the first up while Naomi Campbell closed the show, during which they were accompanied by a mash-up of music including Frank Sinatra’s ‘New York, New York’ and Alicia Keys’ ‘Empire State of Mind (Part II)’.
Other models to take to the catwalk included Angela Lindvall, Karolina Kurkova, Coco Rocha, Lara Stone and Adriana Lima.
The show was divided into trends deemed by Vogue editors to be the must-haves for the autumn, among them Fifties Flare and Tartan Twist.
Vera Wang was one of the many designers to showcase their collection at the event but admitted she wasn’t entirely comfortable with what outfits were being shown.
She said: “I’m worried about tonight. These dresses are probably not what I would have picked from my collection, but tonight is not about me.”
As well as the stunning fashion show, the star-studded audience were also treated to a performance from Pharrell Williams.
