Donna Karan sure knows how to throw one big birthday party! Last night, stars including Emmy Rossum, Hailee Steinfeld and Alexandra Daddario came out to celebrate the 25th anniversary of DKNY and everything that is iconic about the brand. ”It’s playful, but feminine, but it’s got the sleekness and modernness of Donna Karan’s aesthetic,” Shameless star Rossum told InStyle.com. Among the stars, models Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls were also in attendance as the MCs for the evening. “When I think of DKNY, I think of all the advertising and the billboard on Houston [Street] for so many years,” Kloss said. “It’s quintessentially New York and I think they’ve been able to maintain that cool allure.” Held in the historical Wall Street building, ‘The Corner’ in the Financial District of New York City, the venue was transformed into a New York scene filled with neon signs and the DKNY logo on display which still remains an iconic symbol of the brand today. While guests sipped on Belvedere cocktails and indulged in chocolate covered pretzels, popcorn and small pizza bites, Rossum was particularly excited about two things, “cake and live performances, what could be better?” Headlining the bash was Rita Ora, who also shared the stage with Iggy Azalea, A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg. Aside from the huge taxi cab-styled cake, Kloss brought in her very own Karlie’s Kookies for both Donna and the guests to enjoy. Now that’s a party!
