That saucer-looking thing hovering over the exterior may make you wonder when it will return to the mothership, but it’s actually the front for probably the best mall on the Strip. The 250 stores here are comprehensive, covering the basics of a mall you’re already familiar with (Gap, Banana Republic, Zara), some higher-end, cooler options (Scotch & Soda, Top Shop, Diesel), all anchored by department stores like Dillard’s, Neiman Marcus, and the Silver State’s only Nordstrom. On select weekends, the place lives up to its name and has actual fashion shows within the mall itself. A hydraulic runway lifts out of the floor, sometimes with fog, and models march down. It’s all very dramatic, which is what you’d expect from a mall front and center on the Strip. Fashion Show is open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 9pm, and Sunday from 11am to 7pm.
