Among the fashion luminaries who attended were Eva Mendes, Dree Hemingway, Olivia Palermo, Amanda Setton, Andre Leon Talley, Anna Wintour, Tracy Reese, Molly Sims, Rachel Zoe, Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan, and Russell Simmons. The only person missing? Liz Claiborne chief creative officer and former chair of fashion design at Parsons, Tim Gunn. Where were you, Tim?
