Despite its deep Dallas roots, Forty Five Ten turned to newbie Manhattan friends when hosting the grand opening of its Hudson Yards outpost. On this special evening, designers, stylists, models and glam fashionistas populated the uber-chic emporium in the $25 billion project that has all of New York buzzing.

We must assume that the logic behind the limited invitation list was that New York trendsetters are the target audience. After all, Texans have the flagship in Dallas and outposts in Napa and Aspen to shop for cutting-edge emerging and pillar designers.

Forty Five Ten president and chief creative officer Kristen Cole, smashing in Rodarte, and her husband, Joe Cole, senior veep of retail and hospitality of Headington Companies, rolled out the red carpet for guests as did Jeny Bania, vice president of public relations and marketing for Headington Companies. She stepped out in Area, an emerging designer carried in 4510/SIX. Also joining in the red carpet welcome was store manager Carrie Turner, fresh from her post as assistant GM at Saks Fifth Avenue, New York.

Headington bought Forty Five Ten from its founders in 2014 and began the expansion that has extended beyond Dallas city limits. Billionaire, Academy Award-winning producer and Headington CEO Tim Headington was tied up with a movie project and unable to make the launch.

As partygoers spread across the two-story, 16,000-square foot fashion extravaganza, the ever-fetching Anne Hathaway and her husband, Adam Shulman, whose jewelry creations for James Banks Design are carried at Forty Five Ten, were at the focus of stargazers.

So who were those ultra-fashionable guests preening through the store designed in collaboration with Snarkitecture?
