Fanning, Redmayne and Mara were joined by actors Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty), Natasha Lyonne (Orange is the New Black) and Justin Theroux (The Leftovers) and singers Mary J. Blige and Beyonce’s younger sister Solange Knowles. The celebrities enjoyed the culmination of the show as glitter and confetti rained down from above.

Wang held the debut of his edgy sportswear collection at the Fort Washington Avenue Armory. The sporty venue was decked out for the evening in dramatic black curtains and carpet with trampolines spaced throughout. The attendees, prior to sitting down for the show, got to catch a glimpse of the fashion on models milling about and sip on champagne while listening to 90s hip-hop and R&B.

The 90s hip-hop and R&B theme continued on after the show, as Missy Elliot emerged from a long hiatus to hit the stage. Elliot’s performance included renditions of hits Get Ur Freak On, Work It and Lose Control. Joining in on the fun of the fashion show concert was Wang himself, who busted some moves on the runway alongside Elliot.

Wang’s sportswear-themed collection hits stores Nov. 6.
