Michael Kors and company descended upon the Top of the Standard to celebrate the launch of the new Michael Kors Gold Fragrance Collection on Sunday night. Co-hosted with Estée Lauder Companies, the Fashion Week party featured a performance by Duran Duran, whose new album “Paper Gods” was released earlier this week.
Gold-clad guests included models Alessandra Ambrosio, Kate Upton and Karmen Pedaru, and actresses Hailee Steinfeld, Halston Sage and Jaime King among others. Amidst French house tunes streaming from the DJ booth with Harley Viera-Newton on the decks, the crowd mingled, sipped champagne and posed for photo-booth-style snaps.
Later in the evening, Duran Duran took to the stage to treat the audience to nostalgic hits like “Girls on Film,” “Hungry Like the Wolf” and songs from their hot-off-the-press album. As soon as Simon Le Bon sang the first note, hundreds of phones leaped into the air in unison, everyone vying to be the first to snap and share the moment.
