If you happen to be out for a late night stroll this Tuesday in NYC and find yourself walking past Cipriani Wall Street, you may wonder what you’re witnessing, as the hoards of seemingly endless red-soled heels make contact with the black city concrete, and a medley of shadows from the glistening diamond-clad crowd make their way from town cars, taxis, and limousines to the door of the upscale downtown restaurant.
All of fashion’s biggest players will come out to play that night, as Fashion Group International is holding their Night of Stars – a “Galaxy” themed affair, honoring the industry’s most successful visionaries of the year. The event promises to live up to its aptly contrived theme name, with a guest list that rivals Anna Wintour’s rolodex.
In spite of the plethora of famous attendees, such as Alexander Wang, Alexa Chung, Hamish Bowles, Diane Von Furstenberg, Christopher Kane, and Kate Upton, it would appear that Miley Cyrus is stealing the show once again. All the attention seems to be focused on the fact that Marc Jacobs & Robert Duffy will be receiving the night’s greatest honor, the Superstar Award, presented by none other than Ms. Cyrus. It should be quite the scene, especially at Marc Jacobs’ table, where WWD reports that he will be seated along with Cyrus, Duffy, & Aretha Franklin.
Miley and Marc have recently worked together in Jacobs’ “Protect the Skin You’re In” T-shirt campaign. However, according to Miley’s recent interview with HungerTV, Jacobs has been in her life since she was sixteen and he was the one who introduced her to the fabulous world of fashion, teaching her everything he knew. So in a way, Marc Jacobs is kind of responsible for the new and notorious Miley. Thanks, Mark!
