St. Vincent, a/k/a Annie Clark, performs at Rag & Bone during Fashion's Night Out in New York on September 6th, 2012. The party aimed to recreate a Boardwalk Empire-era speakeasy; Clark's raw set included a Brian Eno cover and a stripped-down version of her song "Cruel."
When asked what excites her about Fashion Week, Clark said, "Seeing adorable models, of either gender, running frantically from show to show. That warms my heart. They look so sweet." Decked out in Rag and Bone's Datia knit dress and Phillip Lim's speckled white ankle-strap platforms, she added, "I like to think that someone like Albert Einstein is my fashion icon. He just picked out what he was going to wear every day and he wore it so he didn't have to spend any more brainpower thinking about clothes. I tend to be a little bit like that: I find one thing that I really like and then I wear it until my friends and family tell me it's time." Lauren Musacchio
