Call it fashion’s unofficial kick-off to the Holiday 2014 party season: Topshop and Topman celebrated the opening of their New York City flagship on Fifth Avenue with a heck of a bash inside Grand Central’s Vanderbilt Hall. As exclusive Topshop partners, Nordstrom was only too happy to help our friends celebrate. Here’s our inside report on the very good time.
Everybody Loves Sir Philip: Pictured here with Poppy Delevingne and Ciara on his arms, Sir Philip Green—Topshop’s parent-company owner—took a minute to give a shout-out to Pete Nordstrom and the rest of the company for a successful and stylish partnership during his welcome address.
Bey in the Place To Be: On the heels of the other big Topshop news—the announcement of the Topshop X Beyoncé-partnership, that is—Queen B dropped jaws as she quietly slipped into the party wearing this sparkly Topshop number.
Sister, Sisters: Among the celebs in attendance was this pair of chic sisters: Poppy and Cara Delevingne and Nicky and Paris Hilton.
Party People, All Night Long: Leave it to Cara Delevingne to get things started on the dance floor. Live jams from Jessie J (pictured), Nick Jonas and Lionel Richie (yes, the very; he and Sir Philip are buds) rocked the house—er, the train station.
Keep On Babin’ On: But of course the fashion was on point. From left to right: model, mom and art director Julia Restoin Roitfeld, British model Jourdan Dunn and New York City-based model and DJ Harley Viera-Newton exemplified the turned-out turnout.
