New York Fashion Week Spring 2014 Front Row: Day 3

Posted on September 08, 2013

The fashion train keeps chugging along, picking up Fashion Bitches and dropping them off, darlings. Let’s survey the landscape and render opinions.


Alexander Wang Spring 2014 Show
Courtney Love

She’s Courtney, dammit. This is as good as it gets.

Kerry Washington

 A for Effort, but we’re not loving the dress or the shoes.

Natasha Lyonne


Keeping it basic.


Altuzarra Spring 2014 Show
Lake Bell

Keeping it basic, Pt. 2.

Leigh Lezark

Keeping it batshit.

Rachel Zoe


Never change, Rachel.


Christian Siriano Spring 2014 Show
Leigh Lezark

This is cute.

Selma Blair, Amanda de Cadenetatt, Leigh Lezark

Selma Blair, Amanda de Cadenetatt, Leigh Lezark, Lindsey Gort

Selma Blair

SERIOUS Fashion Bitch. She was almost totally unrecognizable with all the eye makeup. She looked great, though. That venue was hot as hell, so her leather dress and lack of fainting impressed us.

Hervé Léger by Max Azria Spring 2014 Show

Katie Cassidy

DAMN, girl.


Lauriana Mae

Great dress; horrible shoes.

Nicki Minaj 


Serving Fashion Bitch with a little bit of Marilyn.  Apparently her security detail got a tiny bit out of hand.

Monique Lhhuillier Spring 2014 Show
Maggie Grace, Jenna Malone, Ashley Madekwe, Emmy Rossum, Stacy Keibler

Ashley Madekwe, Monique Lhuillier, Stacy Keibler

Not loving Ashley’s dress here.

Emmy Rossum, Stacy Keibler

Love both looks.  Emmy’s green dress was stunning in person. The ladies keep bringing their A game.

Maggie Grace, Rose McGowan


Love both these looks too.


Prabal Gurung Spring 2014
Allison Williams, Zosia Mamet

And how crazy is it that we once again love Zosia’s look? Face it, world. She’s been trolling us. Allison is serving up exactly what she always does, but she looks cute.


 Serving FIERCE-AS-SHIT Fashion Bitch, peasants.



Tibi Spring 2014 Show
Olivia Palermo



And finally, the biggest Fashion Bitch of them all…


Grumpy Cat


We shrieked like little fangurls when we saw her. Of all the celebrities we’ve seen, met, or literally bumped into at Fashion Week, Grumpy Cat was the only one who made us lose our shit. And she’s freaking adorable. We didn’t ask to hold her like some people did, but it’s really hard fighting the urge to automatically reach out for her when you see her. “Grumpy Cat! GIMME!”

    • majorbedhead

      Grumpy Cat wins.

      • Plin

        Agreed. Overall best look, hands down. (Er, paws down. Whatever.)

      • ushoda

        I wanna see Rose’s dress so bad.
        At fashion week, sitting pictures should be forbidden.

      • pottymouth_princess

        Grumpy Cat is serving serious FACE!

      • Anastasia

        I’m tempted to photoshop Grumpy Cat either onto the bench right next to Ciara, or on her lap. “Fierce-As-Shit Fashion Bitches, RESERVED. Keep moving, models. Us royals don’t have all day.”

        • majorbedhead

          DO IT! And then give us all the link.

          • Anastasia

            Link is up!

        • decormaven

          That would be A-MAZING!

    • stilettomafia

      Have mercy! Funniest fashion quote of the day “That venue was hot as hell, so her leather dress and lack of fainting impressed us.”

    • ChaCha_70

      Selma Blair brought it. Fierce.

    • SuziQue

      I love Tardar Sauce…she shows up everywhere!

      • MilaXX

        I know, she puts poor Bubs to shame.

    • MilaXX

      Is there something in the air? There are a few missteps here and there, but other than that fur vest, I haven’t seen any fashion horrors on any of the blogs this year. I guess that’s a good thing, just not as fun. ALSO?
      GImme dat cat!

    • Bridget Smith

      Hah, Grumpy Cat was at Book Expo America this year (first week of June; big trade show for publishers/librarians/booksellers/reviewers/increasing numbers of fans), and people were lined up to see her for HOURS. Crazy security detail on her, too: people weren’t even allowed to take photos. I sort of don’t get it? But then, I’m not a cat person at all.

      • Plin

        I am a cat person, but I’m amazed at a cat that keeps her cool in that kind of situation. Mine would freak out, being around that many people.
        This is part of why we get along so well.

        • foodycatAlicia

          So would mine – my arms would be cut to ribbons. Tardar is an adorable little girl!

      • EdithP

        Ah, so Grumpy Cat = Gwyneth Paltrow (in demands only, not in popularity or attractiveness).

      • anne

        i met her when she was in Minnesota in August! Definitely the best day of my life! I also love how she just shows up everywhere. Adorable!

    • hmariec19

      Oh wow, Tard looks really tiny there. Whatever, she’s fabulous and I’d definitely be one of those assholes begging to hold her.

    • clatie

      I see Courtney is wearing her dress up head.

    • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

      OMGGRUMPYCATIMLOSINGIT!! Loooove that Fashion Week has Grumpy Cat attending.

      And those pink, soft paws! I just want to touch them!

    • Lebogang Mogashoa

      So there is an Amanda de Cadenetatt AND an Amanda de Cadenet. Because for a second I was like, that is the greatest testament to what a change of hair colour can do for a person.

      • Scorpia_Mossmoon

        Looks just like Amanda de Cadenet to me. I think the photo source messed up her name.

      • Gemma

        It’s her daughter, Atlanta.

    • altalinda

      I would not have recognized Rachel Zoe if you hadn’t labeled the photo. Ok, even though you labeled the photo, I still don’t recognize her.

      • Derek_anny

        “don’t ever change” TLo said. I found it ironic.

        • Lori

          My first thought was, “Too late.”

          • Little_Olive

            Really? apart form an improvement in her hair, I don’t see much difference. But then again, her booms are covering up half her face.

            • Lori

              There’s something different going on around her eyes, and I don’t think it’s just the booms.

          • Fanny_Trollope

            Yep. My first thought: Rachel Zoe, what did you do to your pretty face?

      • Little_Olive

        I recognized her the outfit. Bleh.

        • alyce1213

          What can’t she wear clothing that actually fits? She always appears to be disappearing, shrinking inside them.

          • Sarah

            Her pants are always waaay too long. It drives me nuts.

            • alyce1213

              Sleeves too. Sometimes all you see is fingertips.

      • ballerinawithagun

        I know, I thought sure it was Patti Hanson, who is gorgeous but much older.

      • DuBey2

        Sadly, Her face looks droopy. Maybe the bangs need to go?

    • Trickytrisha

      Uncles TLo mention how hot it was at the Christian Siriano show. So I guess those poor models really were sweating up a storm, not just wearing “dewy” makeup. Also, I’m enjoying the scruffy guy in the crazy black and white suit and Google glasses seated next to Selma.

    • e jerry powell

      Has Rose McGowan had work done? That three-quarters doesn’t even look like her.

      Kerry Washington (as much as I adore her): when bad peplums happen to good people.

    • BuffaloBarbara

      You saw Grumpy???? Jealous! That tan and white ensemble with the white socks and mask is to die. 😀

    • Rand Ortega


    • Pennymac

      Remind me when I’m famous to not stand anywhere near Stacy Keibler when pictures are being taken…

      • The Gifted Collector

        My reaction exactly. In fact, I wrote the same thing before I read your entry, I would look like a troll next to her.

        • RebeccaKW

          I’d look like a troll next to any of these celebs.

    •!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      *fangirl squee* Grumpy cat!

    • BeeBeauNYC

      I think Grumpy Cat needs to attend a fashion weeks!

    • avabee

      I want to schnuzzle Grumpy Cat. She is adorable!

    • ashtangajunkie

      Ciara is serving up arms! She looks awesome.

    • Jacquelyn

      Grumpy Cat!!!! Now that’s a fashion bitch.

      • Eric Stott

        Actually, if you look up the term for a female cat, that is Fashion Queen

        • DuBey2

          I once knew a vet who told me 1 of the questions on a state board for the DVM was ” What do you call a grown female cat?” He missed it, of course, being a large animal vet. All I could think was “what’s the opposite of a Tom cat?” but you are correct. A Queen.
          and Queen is part of the name of our cat, but she doesn’t post to Facebook anymore because it interrupts her professional napping schedule.

    • marlie

      Lake Bell has a really, strikingly beautiful face. The dress IS basic, but when you have a face like that… at least it’s an interesting color. Selma Blair looked fabulous, but almost unrecognizable. The ladies all look great, overall.

      Grumpy Cat is awesomely adorable.

    • Little_Olive

      All I can muster is that, deep down, it must be horrible to be in that crowd. If prom made my head spin, I can’t imagine the anxiety to look cool, well dressed, in tune with the designer, chic but effortless, original but not wacky and all that crap.

    • Eric Stott

      Grumpy Cat! SQUEEEEEE!!!!!

    • mhleta

      That is the most chill cat I’ve ever seen. We once went to a small time cat show in Plymouth, MA and those cats and their people are very HIGH STRUNG! Me thinks Grumpy Cat may have been pregaming with Kanye and Nikki. His gangsta name would have to be G. RUMPY or some such.

    • Anastasia

      I can definitely see Peggy Olson rocking Leigh Lezark’s pink and black number!

    • Goldie

      Maybe it’s her makeup, but that does not look like Katie Cassidy. I was so convinced, I googled images of her from the show and I STILL can’t decide. I don’t remember her face being so long and oval shaped. But, since T and Lo were there, I’m taking their word for it.

    • Anastasia

      For some of these attendees, basic really is better (re: Courtney Love, Allison, Zosia)! Despite the many textures, materials, colors, and patterns, every look across the board makes Fall 2013 seem cohesive and not over-done.

      That said, there’s always room to criti-smize: Kerry Washington’s peplum shirt / schoolgirl skirt disaster and whoever decided a throw rug could wear Leigh Lezark and sit in the front row don’t make the cut. While I’m at it, Kate Cassidy looks stunning, but it would have been perfection if she parted her hair to the side.

      • kimmeister

        Yes, why on earth would you pair a peplum top with a full skirt?

        • Anastasia

          And in the same color, no less!

    • Laylalola

      Isn’t Grumpy Cat unusually small? I thought I saw that somewhere.

      • veriance

        I was wondering that as well. Looks tiny!

        • Tom and Lorenzo

          She’s about the size of a 6-month-old kitten.

      • Sarah

        The cat in my avatar <<< is also unusually small like that. Now she is very happy to have Grumpy Cat as her famous tiny mentor! She looks forward to making me loads of money, also.

    • Imasewsure

      God I love that cat… what a moosh

    • Imasewsure

      Zosia owes us a drink since she’s been f^cking with us for forever.. I need Alison Williams’ dress Very cute

      • amanda lynn

        i hardly recognized her since there was a smile! (snarky but true)

      • decormaven

        Just wait. She’ll be back to her ol’ high jinks in no time.

    • The Gifted Collector

      Note to self: Don’t ever have your picture taken standing next to Stacy Kiebler.

      • HVM

        Or Grumpy Cat.

        • OrigamiRose

          Touche :)

    • Akmall Razlan

      of course Grumpy Cat wins, Grumpy always wins, no doubt about that, but ur Keeping It Basic pt1 and p2 are amazing, then, Keeping It Batshit! that was total LMAO! hahah LOL!

    • Vainte

      Grumpy cat is January Jones Yoda.

    • ballerinawithagun

      Love the Leger worn by Katie Cassidy!

      • decormaven

        That was a stunner, yes? And I’m not usually a Leger fan. She’s working it!

    • meowing

      What’s up with Stacy Keibler hosting a game show on TV (Supermarket Superstars)?

      • nannypoo

        I thought this was the worst idea ever until I saw it. She’s really good on the show. The show itself is pretty dumb, and I can’t imagine it will lead to anyone’s success, but she seems really likable.

        • demidaemon

          It is strangely attention grabbing. It’s on every week after PR, and I always say to myself that I won’t watch the whole thing. Well, I usually get sucked in. And credit to Stacy, she is an excellent host. If they hadn’t already hired Alyssa Milano (and her boobs) for PR All-Stars, I would recommend Miss Keibler instead.

      • SylviaFowler

        Is that Supermarket Sweep rebooted?

    • PeggyOC

      Selma, you look awesome, but you’d look 100 times more awesome if you were still a brunette. That dress cries out for dark hair.

      • mshesterp

        Yes–like Zoe Deschanel, Selma needs dark dark hair to really set off her features. Stop coloring!

    • sagecreek

      Stacy K really is eight feet tall, isn’t she?

    • EdithP

      Natasha Lyonne looks healthy and happy, I’m glad to see.

    • AnniNoone

      Natasha Lyonne looks great. She was driving fast down Lohan Street last I heard, so it’s nice to see her looking healthy.

    • OrigamiRose

      *smiles* I have been hopping up and down since seeing your Tweet about seeing Grumpy Cat :)) But dang it, you should have been in the picture with her! *smiles*

    • LipstickForPigs

      Why does the Keibs wear that Trumpian comb-over? Does she have a weird forehead or something?

      • somebody blonde

        She’s probably growing out her bangs. There are only so many ways to look good while doing so.

    • Le_Sigh

      “Cute.. cute…nice shoes…love that outfi–ERMAGAHHH GRUMPY CAT THEY MET GRUMPY CAT!!!!” And that was me just reading your post :-)

    • kimmeister

      Selma Blair has some crazy eyes going on there with that makeup.

      LOVE Emmy’s dress, it would have been better served with some bolder makeup.

    • Jacob Bowen

      Ewwww that skunk vest!!! And Kerry Washington…YOU CAN DO SO MUCH BETTER! You are FIERCE and that outfit is so predictable and boring! You have do that peplum outfit a MILLION times!

    • Kate4queen

      Grumpy Cat! Squee!

    • DuBey2

      Can somebody please tell me who Olivia P is wearing? And her shoes? I LOVE the whole look! Also love Maggie, Rose, and Ciara’s looks.

    • Suse

      Now that she’s dressing better, will Zosia get a decent hair cut next? I hate her hair, especially those top-knot things.

    • lila rogers

      Just wanted to let you guys know, that’s actually Amanda DeCadnet’s daughter, Atlanta DeCadnet!

    • Peeve

      Oh, my God! What a face on that cat! I die…

    • Jane

      I thought Leigh Lezark was pregnant in that black and white fur coat number like nine months pregnant. Katie Cassidy’s hip bones and waist are freaking me out she has a tiny waist and those pants are too low. Not a fan of that outfit.
