For her latest outing Danai slipped into a bra-lette that threw her cleavage into relief and allowed her to show off her enviably sculpted midriff.

The Iowa-born thespian’s top featured swirling jeweled accents over a black background, matching the dapper pair of high-waisted slacks she had selected.

She accentuated her features with makeup including a slick of crimson lipstick and added a subtle touch of glitz to the look with an understated pair of earrings.

Danai accessorized the ensemble with a long black coat that she threw fashionably over her shoulders without putting her arms through the sleeves.

Meanwhile Letitia emphasized her petite frame with a long black leather skirt that was cinched in around her waistline that played up her flat midsection.

Slipping into a black and white print top, she wrapped herself in a leather jacket that matched her skirt and featured a pair of wide-set split half sleeves.

Garnishing the getup with a sleek black clutch, the Guyanese-born actress balanced expertly on a high-heeled pair of gleaming black leather boots with metallic tips.

Legendary Vogue editor Anna Wintour encased her legendarily svelte frame into a black and white dress, adding a splash of color with a costume necklace and warding off the chill with a leather jacket.

Anna could be seen settling onto a front row seat at the show, keeping her large black sunglasses on as what has become a somewhat famous technique of hers. 

‘Well, they’re seriously useful,’ she said on 60 Minutes. ‘I mean, I can sit in a show and if I’m bored out of my mind, nobody will notice, and if I’m enjoying it, nobody will notice. So, I think at this point they’ve become really armor.’ 

Grace Coddington, who used to be creative director at large for Vogue under Anna for years, could also be seen making her presence felt at the event in head-to-toe black.

Showbiz legacies abounded at the fete, including Lauryn Hill’s daughter Selah Marley who wore a canary yellow party dress with tulle straps that fell off the shoulders.

‘America and New York have always been so much a part of McQueen,’ Sarah told Vogue while discussing the new show. ‘It feels part of our creative community. It’s great to honor that.’

Sarah explained to the fashion magazine that nature – such as mulch and the sort of fungus she referred to as the ‘wood wide web’ of forests – formed the creative inspiration for the setup of the show.

As far as the clothing itself is concerned Sarah dished: ‘I wanted it to have a pace to it and an energy to it… and there to be color. I wanted it to have a vibrancy.’
