PARIS (AP) - Break out your stilettos - and your wallet. Retailers all over the world are gearing up for the fourth annual Fashion's Night Out, a celebrity-studded night designed to draw shoppers into stores for a night of celebrity spotting, music, giveaways, food and drinks, and, of course, shopping.
The first events were kicking off in Paris Thursday, where revelers will be treated to spectacles and performances including a parade of scantily clad cheerleaders in Chloe and a daring acrobatics show in Kenzo. In New York, Kim Kardashian, Nicole Richie and Jennifer Hudson were expected.
The event was launched in 2009 in New York by Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and has proven so popular that it's now a fixture in some 19 countries, over three weeks involving tens of thousands of shoppers.
