“E! News” and “Fashion Police” host Giuliana Rancic and her husband Bill hosted Las Vegas’ fashion’s elite at Fashion’s Night Out at the Shoppes at The Palazzo on Thursday evening.
The couple started the evening by shopping and mingling at a private reception at Barneys New York before arriving to the shops full of cheering fans.
Raving that Las Vegas is the ultimate shopping mecca, the couple said the Shoppes at The Palazzo is one of their all-time favorite places to shop since all of Guiliana’s favorite brands are under one roof including Barneys New York and Christian Louboutin.
The fashionable couple arrived in style as Giuliana looked stunning in a plunging plum Diane von Furstenberg dress and statement necklace while Bill looked dapper in a pinstriped tailored Dolce & Gabbana suit. As Bill posed on the red carpet, Giuliana egged him on, shouting, “Handsome! Love that GQ look, baby!”
When asked about hosting the special evening, Giuliana exclaimed, “This is our first time doing Fashion’s Night Out in Vegas and you guys are doing it right. All of these people here — it’s great! I love celebrating fashion. I go to Barneys New York to see what I should be wearing.”
Commenting on the hottest fall trends, Giuliana said, “It’s all about the structured handbag for fall and a more professional look. Fur on shoes is a very hot look right now and tea length dresses are in.”
Giuliana shared her secret fashion tips: “When you’re wearing a strapless dress, use duct tape!” and, “Shoes — the higher, the better!”
When asked if she would ever be a contestant on “Dancing with the Stars,” Giuliana quipped, “No, but I would love to do ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ and take the crown from Bill!’
Giuliana and Bill led the crowd through their top five coveted items for fall including bracelets from Links of London, a colorful chameleon bag from Fendi, black hair calf kitten heels from Cole Haan, a blue paisley men’s shirt from Billionaire Italian Couture and fur stilettos from Christian Louboutin. The crowd was then treated to a fashion show featuring top three head-to-toe looks with signature items from Diane von Furstenberg, Canali, 7 For All Mankind and Chloe.
During a Q&A session with the audience, a guest asked about her favorite look on Bill to which Giuliana joked, “In a towel getting out of the shower,” before saying that she fell in love with Bill watching him on “The Apprentice” so she loves him in a tailored suit.
Giuliana and Bill concluded the evening by picking out shoes and purses for the lucky mom and daughter duo who won a $2,000 shopping spree before heading to the Venetian’s famed gondolas where Bill tried his hand as a gondolier.
