The one-of-a-kind event was held in a space that hasn't been open to the public in decades-on an elevated railroad structure in the West 30s-known as the High Line, which will soon become a park for New Yorkers. "It's a very chic, unpretentious way to celebrate the evening," said Secret Obsession face Eva Mendes, who wore a dress by Calvin Klein designer Francisco Costa. "Being part of such an iconic brand is a dream." -With reporting by Polly Blitzer 02 of 12 Naomi Watts Steve Mack/FilmMagic Naomi Watts owes more to Calvin Klein than simply a few stunning red-carpet looks-the actress was wearing a Francisco Costa design when she first met boyfriend Liev Schreiber. "I'm sure the dress played a part [in the romance]. It was very feminine, but like all of his designs, the lines very were clean and sharp." 03 of 12 Halle Berry Jason Kempin/Getty Images Beautiful Halle Berry celebrated Calvin Klein-not to mention her model partner, Gabriel Aubry-in a slinky design from the line. 04 of 12 Brooke Shields Jason Kempin/Getty Images What comes between Brooke Shields and her Calvin Klein jeans? If her wardrobe at the anniversary party is to be believed, still not a thing. The Lipstick Jungle star celebrated in a suit jacket by Calvin Klein designer Francisco Costa and a pair of skinnies. "I think of my Calvin moments every day, but in a good way," said Shields. 05 of 12 Joy Bryant Jason Kempin/Getty Images NewlywedJoy Bryant wore a shimmering silver top with a luxe leather skirt for the event.

Walker/WireImage Rosario Dawson passed up CK for DVF, in a graphic-print Diane von Furstenberg dress. That's not to say that the actress doesn't admire Calvin Klein design: "That classic, clean look of jeans and beautiful white dresses-the consistency is actually a strength because it's such a classy and elegant line." 08 of 12 Claire Danes Jason Kempin/Getty Images Claire Danes set off her golden tan with a platinum single-shoulder dress.
