Prada, Little Red Riding Hood and Fashion's Night Out

Thursday marked Anna Wintour's (Vogue Editor) stylish economic stimulus project, Fashion's Night Out. It was an evening where designers and boutiques all over NYC (as well as LA, Chicago, and multiple cities around the world) held shopping events, celebrity appearances and cocktail parties with entertainment to get the fashionable to open their wallets.

While I sipped the pearl garnished cocktails at Henri Bendel, and had my nails embellished with jewels, I did manage to enjoy some dark style...

M.A.C. cosmetics promoted Goth looks with a smoky, black palette. Their artists styled all the ladies who visited the boutique for a transformation.

My favorite and unexpected fall fashion showing, was the Prada 5th avenue boutique. Their windows and interior displays had their male mannequins dressed as sexy wolves, the female mannequins wearing luscious red outfits. (My favorite was the crimson red velvet burnout dress). This was all a 3D recreation of this month's Vogue fashion spread of the same theme.

It all seemed to be a tribute Neil Jordan's cult favorite, and erotically charged "The Company of Wolves" movie from 1984.

Missed that one? Don't worry, Leonard DiCaprio and "Twilight" director Catherine Hardwicke have announced they are working together to put out a Gothic version of the fairy tale.

OMG I've just died and gone to heaven. I love it when fairy tales are made for adult movies...and especially if a hot boy is involved!
