Many festivities welcomed the grand opening and eager shoppers were excited to participate in the celebration, marking the arrival of a new shopping experience in Palm Beach County. Perhaps the one event that drew the largest crowd was the 'Celebrity Style Fashion Show' featuring Mario Lopez as the Master of Ceremonies. With his commanding good looks and powerful personality, he had women of all ages taking out their cameras and snapping as many pics as possible once he smiled and gave them that boyish grin. Held in the middle of the Palm Beach Outlets, on Saturday, February 15, 2014 at 6:30 p.m., not only did the spotlights brighten the runway, but the full moon was shining down ever so magnificently on all the fashions.

Models with a striking resemblance to stars such as Rihanna, Adam Levine, Amy Adams, Taylor Swift, Kendall Jenner, Matthew Mcconaughey, Zoe Saldana, Sofia Vergara and Leo DiCaprio, worked the runway in a variety of outfits direct from the stores that line the sidewalks of the Palm Beach Outlets. There were fashions for every member of the family, from casual attire to career dressing to a seductive night on the town. All were accessorized perfectly to match the look.

It was a very enthusiastic crowd as local radio personality, Tracy St. George of 97.9 WRMF, prepared attendees for the arrival of Mario Lopez, the star of the evening. Wearing a striking pencil skirt with Egyptian markings and a black peplum top, she got the audience screaming with excitement as she gave out Kenneth Cole swag bags filled with plenty of goodies.

At the end of the evening, all shoppers enjoyed the show and the handsome Mario Lopez who shook some hands as well.
