The fifth annual Fashion Rocks concert airs Tuesday night on CBS — but FOX News was there at New York City's Radio City Music Hall last Friday to get you the scoop.
As the concert celebrates the relationship between music and fashion, it was quite a star-studded event. "American Idol" judge Paula Abdul shined in gold, and we caught up with her on how it's going with a fourth judge at the table.
"We're finding our beat and our rhythm and it's going to kick in really well I think in the third city, because that's really where the talent starts coming together," Abdul said.
We also got Vivica A. Fox's stance on Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah's Palin's daughter's pregnancy.
"I love that Barack — they took a very moral stand on that when they said families are off-limits. You know she a young girl, she's not any different than any teenager that got pregnant. But thank God that the gentleman's staying with her, her mother supports her, so she's going to be OK," she said.
We had sightings of Miley Cyrus and Hayden Panettiere, who both sparkled in metallic. Brandy came by in a unique rocker-chic number, and British singing sensation Duffy was one of the first to come our way. She helped confirm my choice in wardrobe, pulling me into a photo-op with the writer to my left, since we were all in the apparent color of the night: purple. She told us she's heading on a U.S. tour soon, so we'll be on the lookout.
The men were also decked out. Chris Brown and LL Cool J, who have gotten into the fashion business, were on hand and LL sported a suit from his own collection.
Fashion Rocks will air Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET in a two-hour special on CBS. Proceeds will benefit Stand Up To Cancer, a program established by the Entertainment Industry Foundation to raise money for cancer research.
