Nowy 安iat Street, one of Warsaw's main thoroughfares, was commandeered by the Warsaw Fashion Street (WFS) Show, Poland's largest outdoor fashion extravaganza, July 13. Thousands of people, many celebrities among them, brought the street to a standstill until nightfall.

This was the fourth time Dorota Wr鏏lewska and her Dom Mody Forget-Me-Not fashion house organized the event, which lasted nine hours and featured 70 shows, 50 top models and a bevy of popular stage and screen stars. A 50-meter catwalk was erected especially for the event. The collections of big name designers from all over the world vied for attention with those of up-and-coming young pretenders.

World-renowned designer Giovanni Cavagna put on an excellent fashion show. Jewelry designed by Vicki Beamon was auctioned off with the proceeds going to charity. And finally, a special collection designed by Tomaszewska&Gibzi雟ka from Dom Mody Forget-Me-Not for L'Oreal Paris was modeled by actresses Magdalena Walach, Agnieszka Wagner, and Ma貪orzata Socha.

Other attractions included a dance show choreographed by Micha Pir鏬 to unveil an Orsay dress collection to tango rhythms. Singers Halina Mlynkova and Marysia Sadowska and harpist Anna Faber gave spirited performances that offset the stunning visual displays. Anna Serafi雟ka even put on a "Rock Loves Chopin" concert. At a special Studio L'Oreal Paris, makeup artists and visagistes were on hand to dish out advice on upcoming trends.

There was a Fashion People competition to find the most stylishly dressed people on Nowy 安iat Street. Contenders for the title got up and strutted their stuff on the catwalk. Prizes included an HP Pavilion notebook with an AMD processor.

Budding designers slugged it out at the Talent of Warsaw Fashion Street competition. Wr鏏lewska assessed 12 talented young designers who presented their collections at the show. Monika B這tnicka's collection was the showstopper, winning over Wr鏏lewska and the audience. B這tnicka is particularly inspired by the Edo period of Japanese culture (1603-1867). The Top Model Warsaw Fashion Street 2008 awards were presented in the evening with statuettes going to the winners of the Modne Miejsca (Fashion Places) poll in categories such as Hotel, Restaurant and Club, Store, Fashion Showroom, Beauty Parlor, Sports and Leisure, Health, Auto Showroom and, new this year, Young Fashion Places.
