I had the opportunity to check out some of the Fashion’s Night Out events in DC on Friday night, and they were cool, but they in no way hold a candle to anything that goes down in NYC. The star-studded kickoff for New York’s Fashion week included performances by such names as Kanye West, N.E.R.D. and fashion icon Janelle Monae.

Ms. Monae took the stage at the Ralph Lauren store on Friday to a star-studded event which also included Andre Leon Talley and Jessica Alba. Swoon.
