This new Armani store held an exclusive party to celebrate the opening of Armaniâ€™s latest piece of Manhattan real estate.
A host of celebrities were present at the event included Leonardo DiCaprio, Alicia Keys, John Mayer, Josh Hartnett, Milla Jovovich, Molly Sims, Ricky Martin, celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe, Victoria Beckham, and a pregnant Mira Sorvino.
Armani created a “capsule collection” that will be available only in the Fifth Avenue, and some lucky celebs already wore it last night.

The video stars Dree Hemingway, a ballerina and granddaughter of the writer Ernest Hemingway, running through a city, wearing a yellow Halston dress and heels, and passing by other Halston-wearing women.
The change in format was not due to economic strain, Bonnie Takhar, CEO of Halston maintained â€” “It was something we were planning since September, before the world fell apart.”
But it has worked out with the economy in mind: “A lot of peopleâ€™s budgets will be cut and many wonâ€™t be traveling to see the shows, and this is a way to be inclusive.”
