From the front of the stage to front of the runway, Danielle de Niese (far right) was among the luminous guest list at the Donna Karan 30th-anniversary collection that showed in NYC on Monday night.
To celebrate 30 years in the fashion industry, Camp Karan organized a retrospective collection that ignited a VIP conflagration of Hugh Jackman, Katie Holmes, Trudie Styler and Bernadette Peters, all longtime friends of the brand.
Luxury partnerships have been elusive for opera singers, but de Niese has been collaborating with Karan since 2003, modeling bespoke Karan gowns on album covers and in galas. She even wore a custom-made Karan gown to her 2009 wedding to Gus Christie. De Niese also rotates Vivienne Westwood gowns into her performance wardrobe and scored a Van Cleef & Arples ambassadorship in 2009.
She's currently in NYC to sing Ariel in The Enchanted Island at The Metropolitan from February 26 to March 20.
