Fashion Cares took its final bow on September 9, 2012. With hosts Linda Evangelista, DSquared (Dean & Dan Caten), and a strong artist line-up such as Elton John, Scissor Sisters and Janelle Monae performing for the night, this annual fundraising event ended with glamour.
Check out the red carpet highlights:
