Saks Fifth Avenue knows how to throw a party, and the retailer once again kicked off New York Fashion Week with an exclusive fête filled with an A-list performance and starry guests. On Wednesday evening, Saks CEO Marc Metrick and Maybe I Do actress Emma Roberts hosted a party at the Jazz Club at the Aman New York, that featured an exclusive performance from Charli XCX.

The English pop star arrived in a blue denim lace-up minidress from must-have brand Ludovic de Saint Sernin. The dress featured a pleated skirt with two front slits and the LdSS motif emblazoned all over. The singer-songwriter teamed her frock with a matching denim moto jacket and knee-high black lace-up boots.

The star left her raven strands down in a bouncy blowout, and sported a glowing complexion with a dramatic smokey wing eyeshadow. The “1999” singer completed the ensemble with a black handbag, futuristic shield shades and silver hoop earrings.
