SoHo looked more like Hollywood last night as stars turned out for the much anticipated launch party for the famed British cheap-and-chic retailer Topshop in N.Y.C. And while the lead-up to the opening may have been plagued by delays, the wait was worth it as everyone from Topshop’s star designer Kate Moss to Jennifer Hudson, Jennifer Lopez and tastemakers Anna Wintour and Marc Jacobs headed to Balthazar for an exclusive dinner — that just happened to be one of the fashion events of the season. During a surprise performance by Hudson, who’s long been obsessed with the British retailer, the sequined star shouted out, “I’ve got my little Topshop outfit on. Is this all right?” Lovebirds Lopez and Mark Anthony watched as Hudson performed “One Night Only” from their seats at Moss’s table, which they also shared with designer Jason Wu. And while Lopez might be able to afford the priciest of designer garb, she told that she’s a fan of Topshop for its low-priced chic. “I love that you can get a lot of stuff there, really inexpensive,” she said, “that it fits really great, and they really concentrate on making cool, really cutting-edge clothes.” Check out all the goods at — free shipping all week!
