All top models aboard the Fashion's Night Out bus!

Fashion’s Night Out, the biggest fashion event known to womankind, kicked off its week long schedule with a star studded fashion show. The event took place on September 7 at the Lincoln Center in New York City. Fashion’s Night Out inspires women to drop their earnings on Jimmy Choos and rummage through crowds of equally eager fashionistas as they attempt to comb stores for free goodies and meet fashion designers, models, and insiders in the flesh.

150 supermodels from all over the globe were gathered to strut down the catwalk  and kick off a week of fashion events.  Gisele Bundchen, Naomi Campbell, Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Karolina Kurkova, and Coco Rocha were just a handful of the top models that were adorned in gowns and garments highlighting Fall 2010′s biggest trends as they modeled Louis Vuiton, Prada, Roberto Cavalli, and Carolina Herrera, as well as pieces from Banana Republic, Gap, H&M, and GUESS by Marciano.

Hairpieces, smoky charcoal eyes and deep rouge lipstick capture the essence of the 1920s.

The show opened with graphic tanks and shirts for Fashion’s Night Out and skirts by Carolina Herrera and Oscar de la Renta, followed with seven collections that captured the fashion trends for fall and winter.  Fifties Flare and Jazz-Age Cool brought the audience to a state of nostalgia with Vera Wang and Marc Jacobs designs that embraced the curves and sophistication of a fifties-woman while Alberta Ferreti and Nanette Lepore revived the glamor of the roaring 20′s. Chanel brought their signature tweed jackets to the Tartan Twist collection and Rock Chic was amplified with sequins, studs, mesh, and fishnet courtesy of Emilio Pucci and Just Cavalli. Go Global dressed the models in layers of wool and fur as if they were trotting in the Siberian tundra, as fashioned by Rodarte and John Galliano.  Weekend Wrap-Up also followed the trend of layers on top of layers, but the attire was more fit for an adventure in the woods with its olive military jackets and fur-lined leather buckle boots that were evident in Burbery Prorsum’s Fall 2010 collection.  Taking on a more simplistic approach to fashion and accessories was Pure at Heart, with a neutral palette of colors and cuts used by Balenciaga and Stella McCartney.  The closing act followed with gorgeous evening gowns from Christian Dior, Marchesa, and Oscar de la Renta, to name a few.

Supermodel Gisele Bundchen closes the show in a tulle Marchesa gown and Yves Saint Laurent heels.

Vogue editor Andre Leon Talley and fashion model turned blogger Hanneli Mustaparta hosted the event that was broadcast live on CBS.com.  If you missed it, tune in to CBS on September 14 at 10/9c to watch the special that documents the biggest public fashion show in New York City and everything behind the scenes.  The footage will follow Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour and her crew as they endure early morning business meetings and meet with international Vogue editors as they create the biggest fashion event in history.  Wintour has definitely proved that she can make Fashion’s Night Out bigger and better than before, so it leaves us to wonder what next year could possibly have in store.
