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.
