The second floor of Manhattan’s Saks Fifth Avenue looked more like a concert venue and less like a department store on Thursday night when Welsh crooner Duffy took the stage at a fete in honor of Escada creative director Damiano Biella.
Hilary Swank, Blair Husain and co-host Amy Sacco were on hand for the event, which benefited Free Arts NYC, a charity that provides underprivileged children with education in the arts.

The evening was a change of pace for Swank. “I rarely ever party,” said the actress before heading to a VIP area for the show.
Duffy, meanwhile, had cause to celebrate. After her set, the chanteuse was invited to browse the merchandise in the otherwise abandoned store.
“I feel like the president,” she said. “I’d like to get a pair of good fitting underwear.”
