Tonight is Fashion Night Out, which means that Boston will be overrun with the city’s most stylish.

Based on the guest lists we’ve seen, it seems that there’s no one party of choice and that the Hub’s couture-conscious regulars will spread themselves all around town. Jewelry designer Tonya Chen Mezrich, Sweet owner Courtney Forrester, Fox 25’s Sara Underwood, and Gilt City’s Erica Corsano are on the list for the Saks Fifth Avenue party, which features looks by Yuna Yang, who recently designed a line based on Reese Witherspoon’s character in “Water for Elephants.’’

Meanwhile, the Ames hotel says it’s hosting the “official’’ FNO party at Quixote Studios in Allston. There, you’ll find a pop-up bar and music spun by Shag hair man Sandy Poirier.

British band Bombay Bicycle Club - which had a song on the last “Twilight’’ soundtrack, will play at the AllSaints party at AllSaints Spitalfields in the Back Bay. And as for the local cast of “The Fighter,’’ they’ll also be on Newbury Street. Melissa McMeekin, Kate O’Brien, and Erica McDermott, Chanty Sok, Jamie Ryan, and Mickey O’Keefe should be by the stage near Newbury and Exeter streets by about 6:30.

We have to wonder whether local supermodel Gisele Bundchen will show up for any of these gatherings. She took part in New York’s celebration last year, but you never know.
