Hello fashionistas. Salt Lakers brought the chic factor for the grand opening of the much bally-hooed City Creek Center and the slew of events held by the likes of Nordstrom, Tiffany & Co., Macy's and H&M.

As a former New Yorker and fashion journalist I can tell you, I was impressed by the duds. At Nordstrom's Opening Gala earlier this week, women rocked Louboutin heels (you might recognize those famous red soles), Diane von Furstenberg wrap dresses and faux and real fur vests, while the more savvy men donned colorful shorts, tweed vests and pushed up the sleevs on their blazers just enough to quietly say, "Oh, I've got it." 

City Creek officials say some 50,000 people are excpected to hit the new mall for the grand opening festivities, which officially kicked of Thursday morning, so don't fret if you missed some of the pre-parties and the solid fashion/people watching the events delivered. I'm willing to bet there's going to be some stylin' folks out and about this weekend.

In the meantime, here are some of my fave (and the most eye-catching) looks from the Nordstrom gala:
