A slew of Justin Timberlake’s celebrity friends attended his first fashion show for his new clothing label William Rast. The show took place at Culver City’s Smashbox Studios, with the after party taking place at Peter Famulari’s new venue BOULEVARD3. The celebrities in attendance were Cameron Diaz, Wilmer Valderrama, Eve, Paris and Nicky Hilton, Maroon 5′s Adam Levine, Nick Carter Patrick Dempsey, and many more.
On the runway, there were skinny jeans for men and women, topped with tanks or muscle shirts. There were also country-inspired checkered shirts for men decorated with ruffles or leather details. Some were shown with ascots.
Women’s styles included cropped cardigans, shrunken sweaterdresses and puffy-sleeved blouses with bows at the neck.
Later, dressier attire had a soundtrack of Nine Inch Nails and N.E.R.D. (Timberlake is said to have spent months picking the show’s playlist.) Men wore plaid blazers with attached leather vests over slim-fitting slacks. Accessories were key as each outfit was adorned with oversized belt buckles or chunky pendants. One was a skull, another looked like a grenade.

Party dresses for women were funky and flirty. One ice-blue shift was dangerously low cut, with strands of pearls serving as safety straps. Another featured a shredded scoop neck bedazzled with tiny rhinestones. A polka-dotted, 1950s-style dress had a full skirt, puffy sleeves and a black ribbon belt.
Then, suddenly, the fashion show became a dance-off. Six women — stylishly street smart in jeans, suspenders, short skirts and torn tank tops — turned the runway into a disco, gyrating to a racy Prince tune.
Then the guys took their turn, and they stole the show. To Jay-Z’s “99 Problems,” four men in jeans, T-shirts and plaid sweater vests demonstrated why breakdancing is making a comeback. They were pop-locking and head-spinning like it was 1984. They somersaulted, flipped and struck gravity-defying poses, proving Timberlake’s new duds are disco-ready.
