Thousands of Las Vegas’ most fashionable showed up last night for Fashion’s Night Out at Crystals at CityCenter. Crystals entertained guests with unique in-store experiences, heart-pumping entertainment from soul group Fitz and the Tantrums, delicious restaurant tastings, the stylish talents of KLAS-TV news anchors Chris Saldaña and Dayna Roselli, and a surprise visit from American pop singer and member of the Grammy-nominated group 98 Degrees, Jeff Timmons (Carnivale Costumed Samba dancers at Assouline).

Fitz & The Tantrums stole the show for the evening. Taking the stage with “Don’t Gotta,” the crowd gathered to dance to the infectious beats and even chime in on a surprise cover of the Eurythmics’ ‘80s throwback “Sweet Dreams.” The Rolling Stone “Band to Watch” closed their set by belting their breakout hit “Moneygrabber” and ended the night perfectly when devoted fan and Las Vegas local Melanie Munsell (who waited over three hours to be in the front row) won a signed Fitz & The Tantrums’ Fashion’s Night Out tote. She wasn’t the only one squealing when the band, including lead vocalists Michael “Fitz” Fitzgerald and the seductive, velvet-voiced Noelle Scaggs, signed autographs and took pictures with a line of anxious fans during the post-show meet and greet.

The crowd had more reason to cheer when Grammy-nominated 98 Degrees member and Chippendales’ star Jeff Timmons popped onstage for an impromptu appearance, modestly dismissing his fans’ applause by saying, “Tonight is not about me, it’s about these great retailers benefiting these amazing local charities.” Timmons and his adorable expecting wife were pulled to the stage after being spotted shopping by 8 News Now personality, event host and friend, Chris Saldaña.

Saldaña and his co-host and colleague, Dayna Roselli, guided guests through the night’s raffles with prizes such as a two-night stay at ARIA Resort & Casino, tickets to Viva ELVIS, a VIP experience at HAZE Nightclub, Spa & Salon Vdara spa treatment, $500 Crystals gift card, Disney’s THE LION KING at Mandalay Bay tickets, passes to BODIES… The Exhibition and Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, and much more. Saldaña showed his fashion chops suited in Paul Smith (right down to a pair of enviable striped socks) while Roselli wowed in a va-va-voom lace-inset Stella McCartney dress.

Their witty dialogue was nonstop with all the exciting events happening across Crystals, including:

  • Flirty samba dancers and a Caipirinhas bar at Assouline’s Brazilian fiesta.
  • Kiki de Montparnasse’s live lingerie-clad “mannequins” enticed passers-by.
  • TAG Heuer offered swanky watch and 10 year old scotch paired with motor-inspired timepieces and studded with “real deal” scotch rocks.
  • Hermès doormen clad in horse-heads held horse-shaped balloons and paid homage to the brand’s equestrian past.
  • Stella McCartney had shoppers lined up for their cheeky old-time popcorn cart and photo booth with over-the-top props.

Las Vegas favorites, the Nevada Pops Jazz Trio also entertained guest at Mikimoto and localite Michael Shulman provided fabulous DJing at Dior, complete with crystal-encrusted headphones and one snazzy velvet blazer. Minglers included CityCenter President & CEO Bobby Baldwin, Founder of Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health Larry Ruvo, Smith Center for Performing Arts President Myron Martin, Light Group President Mike Myers and Nevada Cancer Institute Vice President Shelley Gitomer.

Consistently popular were the elegant and delicious complimentary tasting stations by CityCenter restaurants: Todd English P.U.B., Mastro’s Ocean Club, Eva Longoria’s Beso Steakhouse, Social House, Lemongrass and UNION Restaurant & Lounge. Each served signature temptations to endless lines of guests. When not snacking, guests could create keepsakes for the night with a unique iPhoto booth that uploaded glam portraits instantly to a Facebook gallery.
