(NEW YORK) Exactly one week ago, it was the ladies who took the reigns of Salvatore Ferragamo's Fifth Avenue flagship. Last night, the gents had their turn. John Legend, Seth Meyers, and Michael Novogratz hosted a bash to launch Ferragamo World (the brand’s line of eco-friendly shoes) along with Vanity Fair in support of the Acumen Fund. “I get out in very small doses, especially when I’m working,” smiled Meyers. “And to dress for something like this, I put my pants on one leg at a time. I don’t want to sound cliché, but that’s how it is in my world.”

The comedian was soon joined at the bash by Massimo Ferragamo, Ivanka Trump, Brad Goreski, and Anne Heche (avec husband James Tupper) for cocktails and hot risotto croquettes. The women’s store was off-limits, so Heche happily toured the men’s offerings. “It’s always nice to see what they make for the boys these days,” she explained. Legend, meanwhile, happily relaxed on the couch with girlfriend Chrissy Teigen in his chunky Ferragamo sweater. “This is an Aspen kind of look for me today,” he said. “It’s casual, but it makes a statement. It’s been a whirlwind ride for me to promote the album, so it’s nice for a change to go to an event like this with my girl, especially since it’s for charity.”

Meyers wasn’t quite as relaxed, being that this is SNL's famous Halloween week---and the "office" at 30 Rock was just two blocks away from the party. But The Daily did get some bit of insider information. “We all were excited to have Emma Stone host this week,” he said. “This girl is very funny---she actually passed our exceedingly high expectations!”
