New York Fashion Week Spring 2012 Front Row – Part 1

Posted on September 11, 2011

Aside from looking at beautiful clothes, Fashion Week is all about celebrity-gawking. Of course, we’re such fashion nerds that we tend to be more excited when we see a fashion editor we like. But still, it’s always a surreal moment to look up from your phone in mid-tweet and see Iman glancing your way. Speaking of which, we got introduced to Iman at a show and she is just breathtaking in person. That’s not exactly a newsflash but you’d be surprised at how different some of these people look in person. Surprisingly (to us), Whitney Port’s another one who’s ridiculously beautiful. Not to be mean, but you wouldn’t know it from pictures. In person, she has these upwardly sloping eyes and high cheekbones that reminded us of – believe it or not – a young Sophia Loren. Generally speaking, celebrities tend to have incredible skin and hair (or at least the appearance of such)  because they put so much time and money into maintaining themselves. Except for the painfully skinny ones. They have terrible skin up close.

And that concludes our insider-y information. Here’s a rundown of celebs hitting the tents and other venues of Fashion Week. Now that we know what it’s like to be pushed and shoved through steamy hot tents with a million cameras going off and a crowd of people on all sides, we can’t really bitch about how anyone looks here. You wouldn’t believe the swarm of cameras that descend on every celebrity when they enter a tent and sit down. And in almost every case, they either keep a locked-in smile on their face or an expressionless mask. Or sometimes – and this is always hilarious to watch – they pretend like they don’t see the cameras (believe us; you can’t miss them) and pretend-chat with whoever’s sitting next to them. Said chat often stops abruptly once the cameras move on.

      Carrie Preston, I love you on TrueBlood, The Good Wife and most everything else you’ve done….but I do NOT love you in that outfit. It’s like someone made a giant condom out of chiffon, cut off the tip and convince you it was a dress. It is not a dress, it’s a screaming pile of NO that makes Arlene’s waitress uniform look like haute couture. 
      Also, I love the picture with Ed Westwick and Kellan Lutz– it’s a bookend squint off!

          She’s like the really awful junk food you’re ashamed to admit to liking. I rarely see her on t.v., so I guess I could overdose if I watched regularly, but when I see her she’s just so likable in her totally fake/totally sincere/totally ridiculous over-the-top way.

            Yeah, I have to agree about that. I had pneumonia a couple of years ago and spent a month on the couch watching daytime tv. I came across her show and I actually really liked her.

      Heidi Klum’s dress looks very silly.  I am not a fan of the whole solid/sheer skirt trend, but to have an angled hem on the chiffon portion is beyond dreadful.  I realize the dress fit most of Heidi’s fashion requirements (short, tight and shiny) but GAH!!

      1. I forgot that Nicky Hilton existed. It looks like she’s been working at a tanning salon in Scandinavia.2. Lindsay Lohan has friends? Also I am just now realizing that she seems to be wearing the same thing all the time. When did prison uniforms become little cream-colored things? Do people besides me continue to associate Lindsay Lohan with prison?
      3. Alex McCord needs a new hair stylist.
      4. I want to be friends with Amanda Hearst. Or maybe just her gays.
      5. Lea Michele is getting a little bit Liv Tyler circa late 90s. I’m not sure how I feel about it.
      6. I want Whitney Port’s yellow dress and those shoes too. She looks like an Autumn Princess.
      7. I love Rose McGowan’s clothing. Not her, just her clothing.
      8. Carrie Preston’s dress is by the US Postal Service.
      9. Miss Teen USA has Quincenera decorations growing from her crotch.

      I feel so much better now. :)

      Why did Carrie Preston wear a giant used condom to fashion week?? And who is she again?
      Heidi Klum just has to stop dressing like a 23-year-old Victoria’s Secret model (with extremely BAD taste).
      I hate Matthew Settle’s ill-fitting crotchbump slacks. These are not trousers to slip your hands into the pockets.
      KellyMyAngel has looked better. Shoes are awful. I Iove a glove, but not these with that plain dress. Maybe a sassy color pop instead of conservative white.
      Lindsay Lohan is still a train wreck. Will she ever come back?
      Ashley Tisdale’s going to a bat mitzvah in 1998.
      Jamie Lynn looks lovely and understated. Great color for her, love the simple taupe pumps, and her fringe is adorable.

Christopher Guest needs to get in there for a mockumentary of the fashion world: you could not come up with a better joke costume than Anna dello Russo’s get-up. She looks absolutely hideous. Lohan looks like a 60-something Palm Beach divorcee. And why are so many of these people orange? I think someone needs to do a telethon to save the poor orange fashion people. Michael Kors can host.

        OMG, I hope that either Guest or Lady Guest reads this blog and starts immediately on a script.  This world begs to be spoofed!

      Oh, Heidi. Heidi, Heidi, Heidi. What is wrong with you?

      Whitney Port looks fab in the green outfit. I also like the dress in the other photo, but she barely looks like herself. I used to watch The Hills periodically and have always thought she was adorable.

      Even with the huge glasses covering most of her face, Lindsay looks totally ravaged. She just makes me sad.

      Carrie Preston: I have no words.

      Joan Rovers looks fresher and younger than Lohan.

      I mean if that is how Lohan looks after styling – IMAGINE what she looks like au natural…I fear for real that her days are numbered. She is looking REALLY sickly

        Yeah. And maybe it’s just shadows but her legs have a couple of those fresh bangs & bruises that the frequently impaired sport. (yes I am assuming and speculating and even imputing here on what could well be a trick of the lighting.)

          At least she’s got the home detention ankle bracelet off, and her probation officer let her leave the state.  Winniing!

      I had to google at least half the people shown here, except the one who was considerate enough to wear a sash telling us that she is Ms. Teen USA.  That I got.

      Rose McGowan looks fabulous, if not exactly like herself.

      I know it’s been said, but LiLo is looking rough. She just looks so exhausted and, I don’t know, hungry? Like she hasn’t got a damn clue about how to be kind to herself. And her extensions look thirsty.

      I counted. I recognize exactly 12 people here, and two of those are just names I have heard but I don’t know why they are famous. I absolutely must get out more.

      I am so confused as to what the weather is like over there. From thick coats and dresses to the skimpiest outfits I have ever seen. The heck people?

      Randomly:
      I approve of Ms. Osbourne’s gloves. They elevate the ensemble to a look instead of nice dress with ugly shoes.Anna dello Russo: Bat Shit. (The ensemble. No opinion on her.)Kellan Lutz, who normally does nothing for me, is strangely appealing in the midst of all of those chiseled jaws and mutant cheek dimple-grooves. (yummy suits, mostly)Corrine Bailey Rae: Love her, she’s so pretty, I didn’t know she was into Fashion with a capital F, that dress is great on her. The pink & black shoes on the gal to her right are kind of cute too.Alex & Simon! Still married! How nice!Amanda Hearst: Rich sorority girl with nice taste in jackets.Lea Michelle: Like the 40’s vibe on her, but she could have used 40’s or 40’s-esque costume earrings OR brooch (not both!). Best if they were 40’s-esque and not real vintage to keep it a vibe, not a costume.Carrie Preston, wearing grey thing: Fire somebody. Buy full length mirror. (I take it back if you are concealing a 4-month pregnancy).Miss Teen USA: You go, honey! When you’re shopping for a dress that a white & silver sash reading “Miss Teen USA” won’t ruin, best to take no prisoners! (Seriously, I think given what she could do – a dress the sash would ruin, or a European royalty at state dinner look, this was a fine choice. I’d have liked it better with shoulders, though – but I quibble).

      Lea Michelle looks fabulous.

      That’s a ridiculously unflattering shot of Heidi Klum.

      And Lindsay Lohan still makes me sad. I always found her to be a talented (enough) actress and so pretty before… well, everything.

      Thank you, TLo, for providing us the “inside scoop” so well. Living vicariously through you is fun. A question (or a few): are the shows inside designer’s main studios, or in tents at a park? How long is each show? Are cocktails served? Does one sprint from tent/store to tent/store all week long? Does one get invited to all the shows (general admission), or are there a select few? Is it by invitation only? I am WAY too curious.

        I can help answer a few of these… The shows for NY Fashion week this year are mostly in tents set up at Lincoln Center. For many years they were at Bryant Park but going forward Lincoln Center is the main site. There is also an offshoot and sort of competing location downtown at a place called Milk Studios, that usually is a studio for photoshoots. Then there will be still a few others who show at different locations around town but they need to make sure people can get to their shows.

        Each show is only about 15 minutes long!

        Cocktails are usually not served, but maybe sometimes if the show is a presentation, where the models stand around, they will. There are lots of official parties at night though.

        Each individual show is by invitation, but there is often some standing room for fashion students etc – there are ways to get in if you are pushy/clever (at least this used to be true, I don’t know if it’s gotten stricter; fashion students etc will often also get offered opportunities to help out backstage).

        More and more shows are streaming live online. The Marc Jacobs show has been live online for a few years now, and you can watch as the room fills up before the show.

          Where do you go to watch the shows stream online?  The designers’ websites?

      Is Heidi Klum wearing an item from her new line of skankwear?

      I gasped when I saw the pic of Anna dello Russo.  That dress is too young, to little, and too much.  Thought Jamie Lynn Sigler was Ashley Tisdale’s mother until I read the caption. Why is Carrie Preston wearing a potato sack?

        OK that Anna dello Russo looked weird and she looked really really old in it.  Is she really really old?  Who is she anyway?

      Who are all these people? Is there anything that distinguishes them from the rest of us, other than someone in their families gave them a black card?
