Christina Hendricks to celebrate Fashion’s Night Out

Marc Jacobs, Diane von Furstenburg, Heidi Klum, Nicki Minaj and Christina Hendricks are among the designers and celebrities who will celebrate this year’s Fashion’s Night Out.

The third annual event, a shopping paradise designed to boost the economy, will be held in cities across the USA on Sept. 8. Shoppers will be treated to extended retail hours, limited-edition merchandise, fashion shows, live performances, celebrity appearances and other fun extras. (Beverly Hills shoppers can take a ride on a Ferris wheel mounted in the center of famed Rodeo Drive.)

New for 2011: More than 200 e-tailers will participate virtually in the event.
