On Friday night, Harper’s BAZAAR held its annual Icons ball to toast its September portfolio styled by Carine Roitfeld, and creative directed by V’s own Stephen Gan (the editors serve as BAZAAR's Global Fashion Director and Creative Director, respectively). The yearly celebration has become a highlight of New York Fashion Week, and this event proved to up the ante even further.

Cover stars Kanye West and Kim Kardashian were joined by a slew of stars at the Plaza Hotel, including Natasha Poly, Lindsey Wixson (both of whom were also featured in the September portfolio by Karl Lagerfeld), Doutzen Kroes, Ashley Graham, Kate Upton, Lucky Blue Smith, Adriana Lima, Carolyn Murphy, Hailey Baldwin, Sofia Richie, Heidi Klum, Pamela Anderson, Mary J Blige, Emily Ratajkowski, Hari Nef, Kaia and Presley Gerber, and more industry icons. Of course, the evening wouldn't have been complete without the Kardashian-Jenners tribe, with Kendall, Kylie, Kourtney, and Kris out in full force to support their family members.

The celebration culminated when Kanye took the stage, performing a medley of hits throughout his career including "Famous" and "Black Skinhead." With high-end stage production and a roaring audience (in which West descended during one of his final numbers), the show could have easily been a night on West's current The Life of Pablo Tour. The true highlight, though, was the rapper's finale speech, which he ended with an iconic line that is surely to go down in fashion history: "There's only one Carine Roitfeld [mic drop]."

We couldn't have said it better ourselves. Check out the slideshow of standout moments below, and click here to see the September portfolio.
