American Eagle Flagship Store Opens in NYC
Even in the middle of New York’s Times Square were the “naked cowboy” is often spotted walking around without so much of a side-eye from your typical the New Yorker, the American Eagle Outfitters flagship store opening party managed to get New Yorkers interested. And, it certainly made an impression with the flashing light bulbs, sexy guests and celebrity guests all enjoying the activities of the night.
The 25,000 square feet officially opens it door the general public on November 19th, but a preview party was held two days prior to a huge crowd of invited guests. And, AEO went all out for the night activities. The store’s three floors were busy and each floor had a special giveaway. In the middle floor guest were able to customize a hoodie to their liking with words like Fierce, or New York, or just cool sayings, once you were done you could design your trucker hat with whatever you wanted. In the third floor there was an underwear section were guests were able to choose an underwear of their liking and also a perfume.
Though apparently the highlight of the evening was the scheduled special performance by Leighton Meester. Yes, she also sings – if you want to name it that. She performed. Yeah, I don’t know quite what to say so I am just going to move on. I did really enjoyed hearing DJ Pete Wentz, doing his hang of the turn tables. DJ Chachi did his thang too.
In addition to Leighton Meester who had a four song performance including her single “Somebody to Love” and DJ Pete Wentz other celebrity guests included Jessica Szohr, Michelle Trachtenberg, Sebastian Stan, Matthew Settle, Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, Adrian Grenier, Eric Mabius, Mark Paul Gosselaar, Justin Kirk, Roxy Olins, Christian Siriano, MTV VJ Adrienne Bailon, among others.
