By Mercedes Sanchez Fashion Night Out While it took place throughout the entire city, we covered Fashion's Night Out in SoHo where the streets were full of shoppers and those just trying to get complimentary cocktails and a glimpse of today's best local and high-end designers and celebrities.

Vera stopped by the Vera Wang boutique on Mercer Street where we met the queen of bridal gowns! Vera looked ultra chic with her silky, long black hair as she took photos with fans.

Prince Peter provided the music from his turntable, and we also spoke with American Idol Judge Kara DiGourdi.

On the way home, I bumped into Russell Simmons who was sitting outside texting away on his BlackBerry. Since it was Fashion's Night Out, we asked the man of wisdom if he would share some advice. Briefly, the Hip Hop mogul told me to keep on doing what I love. He said to stay focused and to not get distracted by superficial things like who has the best shoes. Simmons said that as long as I surround myself with positive people who believe in me and in my project, I shouldn't give up. Well, thanks Russell!
