Usually when I think of Uniqlo, I think of their cute graphic tees and those super lightweight down jackets you can wear underneath your coat when those cold, winter days set in, but when I was invited to a party at the Fifth Avenue Flagship location, the scene was hot, hot, hooot, thanks to actress and now DJ queen, Taryn Manning.
I have been a big fan of Taryn's ever since her role in Crossroads - you know, that Britney Spears movie - I know you saw it! Since then she has appeared in films ranging from 8 Mile to White Oleander, plus recurring roles in Orange is the New Black and Hawaii Five-0.
Ms. Manning rocked it in the Lifetime movie Cleveland Abduction, a serious role based on a true story, and after a rocky road with sobriety issues which she has been very public about, she is now rockin' it out as a DJ - pink hair and all! Taryn got the crowd pumped (mostly oh-so-cool fashionistas and designers) and looked like she was thoroughly enjoying herself. I caught her gettin' down to some of her jams, fist pumping and all! You go girl!
The designer of Uniqlo's super cool new graphic designs, Sigrid Calon, who I immediately spotted with her awesome and arty outfit, came in all the way from the Netherlands - we got
a cool pic in front of some of her designs - make sure you grab them before they're gone!
