OMFG!!!!! Thursday is FASHIONSNIGHTOUT and I could not be MORE excited!!!!!
Here’s my (keeps getting longer) hopeful “Hit-List”
The Mulberry Project & NYC Food Trucks at Henri Bendel
If you’re not totally distracted by the Cirque du Soleil show on the ground level, head up to the third floor to enjoy a spread from the best of the city’s food trucks and drinks by Mulberry Project. Cupcake Vineyard’s Prosecco will also be available, along with Smartwater samples to keep you hydrated. 712 Fifth Avenue, 6pm.
Azealia Banks and DJ Cosmo at M.A.C. Soho
Banks has teamed up with the beauticians at M.A.C. on a limited-edition lipstick debuting on FNO. Stop by to grab one for yourself, then stick around for her special performance. You’ll probably want to get there early; it’s going to be crowded, and the people-watching is going to be incredible. 506 Broadway; Banks is set to perform around 7:45pm.
Rebecca Minkoff at Saks Fifth Avenue
Rebecca Minkoff is known for her handbags, but this FNO, she’s all about beauty. Embrace your inner ten-year-old girl with her Girls’ Night Out activities: a ponytail bar, a smokey eye station, a nail art haven, and even a spot to make your own “arm party.” 611 Fifth Avenue, 6:30pm.
Karlie’s Kookies at DKNY
Karlie Kloss partnered with Momofuku Milk Ba on a limited-edition line of cookies. You’ll be able to try some at DKNY, where they’ll be served by her and model friends Jourdan Dunn and Toni Garnn. Proceeds will be donated to Lauren Bush’s FEED organization. Did we mention that she’ll also be there, showing the DKNY x FEED capsule collection?420 West Broadway, 6pm.
Kissette at M Missoni Soho
The sisters behind Kissette have DJ’d parties for everyone from Cheap Monday to Diesel. While they spin, the shop will be selling a thematically appropriate accessory: limited-edition M Missoni headphones in a variety of colors. 426 West Broadway, 6pm—10pm.
Rev Run + DJ Ruckus at Piperlime
Piperlime celebrates FNO with the launch of its first-ever brick-and-mortar boutique in Soho. Not only will you get to meet Rachel Zoe, but music will be supplied by Run DMC’s Rev Run and DJ Ruckus. 121 Wooster Street, 6pm—11pm.
DJ set by Alexa Chung, Moschino Back in January, Alexa Chung told Jimmy Fallon that when she has to DJ, she just makes a mix CD ahead of time and then spends the event pretending to look busy. Somehow, this admission only made seem even more down-to-earth. Watch her fake it all evening at Moschino’s Meatpacking District store. 401 W. 14th Street, 7pm—11pm.
DJ Solange Knowles, DVF
It’s the battle of the It Girl DJs! While Alexa Chung is doing her thing at Moschino, Beyoncé’s hip little sister will be spinning across the street. Cocktail, dessert, and makeup touch-ups from M.A.C. artists are all included. 874 Washington Street, 6pm—11pm.
Cyndi Lauper at Manolo Blahnik
Six words, people: Girls just want to have fun. Lauper will be performing at 8:30pm in celebration of her new musical Kinky Boots, so don’t be late to this can’t-miss event. 31 West 54th Street, 8:30pm.
