Charlize Theron at Dior in New York was one of the bigger celebrities at Fashion’s Night Out on Thursday, but she was only one of the many stars, designers — and shoppers — making the rounds. From Beijing to Berlin, Milan to New York, the retail and fashion industry did its bit to spur consumer spending.

Here, some observations from those who took part in the night:

“I don’t know why I always go for a sports analogy, but this is a win-win.” As for that other notable sporting news in town — Derek Jeter’s pursuit of Lou Gehrig, “In the age when so many of them get help, he’s the golden child, the ambassador of clean baseball.”
— Justin Timberlake at Saks

“I was just here at Saks looking for some things from my own line that I wanted to buy and they were sold out. I have to start making sure I order things for myself. I am shopping — isn’t that what you’re supposed to do?”
— Donna Karan

“I wish I had my grandmother’s handwriting. Mine is chicken scratch.”
— Aerin Lauder, signing boxes of Private Collection Jasmine White Moss at Saks

“I’ve always loved magic, so I thought mixing it with fashion would be fun.”
— Carolina Herrera at Saks

“To all the girls who buy my clothes…I hope after Bette hears Barbara and I [singing] she’ll ask us to be her opening act in Vegas.”
— Oscar de la Renta, about Bette Midler and Barbara Walters

“I can’t believe the energy in here!”
— Josie Natori at Saks

“This is so full of life. I am happy for Carine and Anna, who organized this event, because people are enjoying themselves. It was such a good idea.”
— Karl Lagerfeld about Carine Roitfeld and Anna Wintour

“Ha Ha! It’s 6 p.m. Ask me tomorrow. [I] think everyone will get back together after collections to evaluate and talk about doing it again.”
— Anna Wintour

“We sold out more than half of the inventory and already raised over $200,000 for the 9/11 Memorial Fund.”
— Terry Lundgren, Macy’s chief executive officer

“Driving up here, every single store had a line outside. It’s obviously working.”
— Camilla Belle at Ralph Lauren

“I’m having so much fun I almost forgot I am having a show in two days.”
— Alexander Wang at Barneys New York

“It’s a cool excuse to shop. There’s some stuff I want but I’m stuck here working.”
— Jack McCollough of Proenza Schouler at Barneys
