For Fashion's Night Out, Saks Fifth Avenue transformed into the most stylish of affairs, where free treats, celebrity sightings, and glitzy gowns were plenty. Click to see more from the fashionista-studded event.
Saks hosted one of the largest Fashion's Night Out events, so the large crowds and larger lines were no surprise.
Oscar de la Renta made an appearance to fete the launch of his new Essential Luxuries fragrance collection.
Knicks fans lined up to meet pro baller Amare Stoudemire. "My mom was the first to introduce me to fashion," he said. "I grew up watching her style." The one fashion Stoudemire can't live without? "A fresh pair of kicks," he said. At last night's stylish affair, he wore a Calvin Klein jacket and Tom Ford shoes.
Shoppers also received free Suno-print nail art by designers Max Osterweiss and Erin Beatty.
Despite the hours-long wait for the free manis, shoppers Jenelle Jones and Kristin Session said "they would definitely get it again" ... even though the 10-minute process required "lights that were literally burning [their] hands." Sticker-like manicures typically cost about $50 and last 8 to 10 days.
Rollerena, the "Queen of Studio 54," didn't disappoint when it came to dressing for the fashion affair.
John Hardy offered one-of-a-kind henna tattoos inspired by the jewelry line's latest collection. Designed by Creative Director Guy Bedarida himself, each temporary tat lasts about two weeks.
After receiving her faux ink, Jennifer Hoffman said the hardest part of the process was "not touching [her] hair because it takes about a half hour to dry, and I'd hate to smudge it."
Designer Erin Fetherston is known for her cute cocktail dresses, but the fashionable lady says "hair is such an important part of the whole look." She hosted a bang-trimming session with hair stylist Edward Tricomi. She wanted to give her clients " the whole package" for FNO.
Sijia Peng was nervous putting her hair in the hands of a complete stranger. "I'm just not sure how it'll turn out," she said before the first cut. But post-new look, she says she's "really happy with the haircut."
Fern Mallis, former executive director of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, broadcast her Siriux XM program live from the eighth floor of Saks.
After much preparation, Saks employees pose for the camera in front of the store's signature FNO backdrop.
For "Glee" fan Melissa Moi, the only item on her Fashion's Night Out agenda was meeting actor Darren Criss. She lined up at 3pm. Receiving a copy of Vogue signed by Anna Wintour was simply a bonus.
It looks like this DJ lost control of his music once the Blue Man Group started their routine.
Charnele Hylton wore one of the most impressive outfits of the evening, and we're loving that it's affordable too. "[The top] is vintage, the pants are from H&M, and the flats are Baker sandals," Hylton said.
"I have a style all of my own," said Christian Simmons. The Saks shopper sported a Donald Duck sweater and blue kicks to the fashionable festivity. Notice how well the red belt matches Donald's mouth.
Rounding out the Saks giveaways, artist Ian Sklarsky drew portraits from 7 to 9pm.
