Stars come out for Justin Timberlake’s runway show

No performance from the star, though

Roseland Ballroom played host to a different kind of Justin Timberlake show last night (September 7), staging the Spring 2009 preview of his clothing collection William Rast.

Fashionable types descended on the venue at 9pm to see the clothing line’s first full collection, and for a rumoured performance from Timberlake.

‘Entourage’‘s Jeremy Piven and Kevin Connolly, ‘Saturday Night Live’‘s Andy Samberg, Rachel Hunter, actresses Malin Akerman and Emmanuelle Chriqui and ‘Vogue’ Editor Anna Wintour were all in attendance, with Wintour rushing backstage after the show to greet Timberlake.


Timberlake owns William Rast with his business partner Trace Ayala and, as previously reported, recently starred in a short Internet film to promote the brand.

In typical designer style, Timberlake emerged to take a bow at the end of the show, but did not perform live.
