One of the more unique presentations I attended last week is the "Diet Pepsi Style Studio" hosted by Barney's Simon Doonan. With set design by huz Jonathan Adler, complete with a runway of Diet Pepsi cans, the show featured four regional up-and-coming designers (Genoveva Christoff/Columbus, OH, Rae Marie/Denver, CO, Elise Bergman/Chicago, IL, Shirin Askari/Dallas, TX).

Each designer showcased their hometown perspective in three themed fall looks to an intimate audience that included: Kristin Chenoweth, Debra Messing, who I'm loving in Smash, Mary-Kate Olsen, Kelly Rutherford, Miss J, Jay Manuel, and that "is he gay/isn't he gay guy" from Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

It was standing room and tough to photograph the individual looks but I found this great video recap of the event:
