Donna Karan New York turned 25 this year and held a special party in New York on September 9. Not surprisingly, the guests at DKNY’s 25th birthday event didn’t disappoint with their outfits.
Rita Ora picked up her bandana-print look straight from the DKNY runway. She wore a matching top and culottes, along with a white blazer that has the number 25 printed on the back in the same pattern.
The British singer, songwriter and actress could have gone the whole way with the monochrome theme by wearing DKNY shoes, but Rita decided to break the black-and-white up with some rhinestone Louboutins. These pointed-toe beauties aren’t for sale, but you can find plenty of other styles by Christian Louboutin at Neiman Marcus.

Joan Smalls was lucky enough to have her cropped top and long mesh skirt custom made by DKNY. The 25-year-old model loved showing it off and didn’t leave much to the imagination in her revealing outfit.
Although her shoes remained hidden for most of the event, a glimpse of them exposed just how gorgeous they were. The pointy DKNY pumps have thin ankle straps and are covered in the same monochrome print that Rita was spotted wearing.

Karlie Kloss dressed entirely in DKNY for the birthday bash. The model towered above everyone in sporty blue-and-white DKNY heels. Zips, cutouts, and chunky heels are all feature on these spring 2014 shoes. Karlie coordinated her look by choosing to wear a cute blue pleated dress with black side panels.

Actress Emmy Rossum stood out in a tight gold DKNY dress with thin straps and black detailing on the back. The rest of her look was kept simple with pointy black Louboutins that had incredibly high heels. These patent leather So Kate pumps have been seen on many celebrities recently and come in a variety of colors and prints. If you want the classic look, stick to black as Emmy did.
