But this wasn't a party party.
This was one of Britain's biggest brands, Burberry, shunning the catwalk completely for the first time in years, choosing to throw a so called "fash bash" instead.
Around 40 designers are following suit -- it would appear that catwalks have become so "last year."
Not so quick, say the experts:

And the Giants played like Giant killers early as Pedro Feliz- hit this homerun to left field to make it a 1-to-nothing game.
But the the Astros just hung around, and in the 7th inning pinch hitter Jose Viscaino drove in both runs with a single to put Houston in front to stay 2-to-1. Tannersville native Billy Wagner came on in the ninth and set down the side in order to record his 44th save.
