LAST NIGHT MARKED THE 30TH ANNUAL FASHION GROUP INTERNATIONAL NIGHT OF STARS GALA IN NEW YORK CITY—AND THE EVENT DEFINITELY LIVED UP TO ITS NAME
Only in the fashion world would a huge celebrity like Miley Cyrus show up to an event as a presenter, and nothing more. Wearing a glittering green dress by the award recipients she introduced, Marc Jacobs and Robert Duffy, Miley and all the other darlings put on their fashion faces for a serious night of style. No crop tops or pasties for Cyrus this time, and no plunging neckline for Kate Upton, presenter for the woman who put her on the cover of her first fashion magazine (and in an editorial shot by Bruce Weber, for the first issue of CR Fashion Book), Carine Roitfeld. A subtle Christopher Kane suit was just fine for his presenter, Alexa Chung. Not that the aforementioned winners of Fashion Group International awards are prudes—to the contrary! But last night (even if it was a "Night of Stars") was about the star-makers: the fashionistas behind the fashion icons. For one evening, the celebs demured, just a little, while the designers, editors, stylists and other industry insiders shone.
