Coutura's Guide: Top 20 Places to Be on Fashion's Night Out




Before we know it, Fashion's big night on the town will be upon us. As we learned last year, to make the most of it (i.e. catch Anna Wintour running through the streets and party with Beyonce and walk away with free swag), you have to plan ahead.

Fortunately, this year has more events than ever for you to add to your schedule.

Scroll down for the events that caught our eye (celebs, free gifts, discounts galore!):


1. Red Carpet Makeovers at HENRI BENDEL
