Fashion Rocks 2008: Song, Dance and Killer Threads

By: Betsy Waldman / September 6, 2008

Looking good and doing good went hand-in-hand last night at Radio City Music Hall, as entertainers hit the stage for the fifth annual Fashion Rocks concert in New York.

The event, sponsored by the Conde Nast Media Group, highlighted the relationship between music and fashion. But the concert also had a philanthropic side: Proceeds will go to cancer-research group Stand Up to Cancer.

The evening’s festivities—hosted by the always-fashionable Denis Leary—included performances by Fergie, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, the Pussycat Dolls, Keith Urban and Kid Rock. One of the show’s biggest highlights was a duet between Justin Timberlake and Beyonce on the Marvin Gaye/Tammi Terrel classic “Ain’t Nothing Like the Real Thing.”

The event will air Tuesday night on CBS. In the meantime, click through the gallery on the right for a photographic parade of the evening’s high points.
