Fashion’s Night Out 2012

Much like last year, I had a fun, magical FNO on the UES of Manhattan at the Oscar de la Renta store with friends, a great band, and Oscar himself. Oh, and a lovely actress you may recognize. 😉

It was over in the blink of an eye. But I had so much fun, between the event, and my daily shows, I’m now exhausted, and having trouble keeping my eyes open long enough to write this! I’m going to let the photos speak for themselves again, because really, what more is there to add?

Fashion’s Night Out With Oscar de la Renta

Oscar de la Renta FNO: 21

When rumors of this year’s FNO events started swirling around, I wondered, what could I possibly do that would top spending the past two years of FNO with Gwen Stefani. Well tonight, I got my answer!

Thanks to the amazing ladies of Oscar de la Renta’s PR department, I got to spend Fashion’s Night Out watching Oscar himself, and a mariachi band sing to the crowd in his Madison Avenue boutique. The store was packed full of friends and admirers, but everyone was so happy and excited, it wasn’t as overwhelming as some FNO events can be.

Everyone was laughing, and cheering, and having fun. At one point, the crowd went wild. Assuming everyone was really excited for Oscar to begin singing again, I was shocked to look up and see Sarah Jessica Parker had made her way to the stage to be serenaded by Oscar.

After a few songs, both Sarah Jessica, and Oscar made lovely speeches, gushing over how much they admire each other. It was adorable, and almost made me a little teary eyed. When SJP was on her way out, I got to tell her the effect her speech had on me as she passed by, which she said was sweet.

Whatever these are, they were made with some of the best chocolate I’ve ever had in my life. And I don’t really even like chocolate!

Soon it was time for me to head home. I couldn’t believe it was just after 8pm– It’s been such a long day, it felt more like midnight. But it’s safe to say my FNO adventure might have been short, but it was definitely sweet. Like the past two years of FNO, I’ll be sure to remember tonight forever.
