New York Fashion Week Front Row Day 6

Posted on February 15, 2012

It’s the morning of our seventh straight day of running from one end of Manhattan to the other, trying to fit in every show we’ve been invited to, and it’s finally happened: we’ve hit the wall. We expect to see a “spotted in the tents” item that goes like this: “Fashion bloggers Tom & Lorenzo were spotted sniping and rolling their eyes at each other as they walked into the Michael Kors show!”

Don’t worry; we love each other still. We just can’t spend another day in a hotel room together. Okay, maybe one more, just so we can go to Marchesa. But that’s it. We mean it.

Anyway, let’s all be tired and cranky and take it out on the famous and pseudo-famous alike; shall we?

Badgley Mischka Fall 2012 Show
Kate Mara

Kate Mara and Kelly Osbourne

Pretty great dress, but lousy shoes on Kate. Kelly’s serving it up, but we still don’t like the hair.

Kelly Bensimon

Great skirt, but we don’t love the top.

Dennis Basso Fall 2012 Show
Kristin Cavallari

Love the colors.

Joan Rivers, Susan Lucci, and Ivanka Trump

This was clearly the section labeled “Rich Bitches.”

Joan Rivers, Susan Lucci, Ivanka Trump, and Kristin Cavallari


Naeem Khan Fall 2012 Show
Kristin Chenoweth

Cute, but we hate the hair and the skirt’s a little wonky on her.

Matt Damon and Luciana Damon

Oh, come on, Matt. Try a little harder than that. Then again, the wife didn’t exactly dress to impress, did she?

Padma Lakshmi


Narciso Rodriguez Fall 2012 Show
Claire Danes

Gloria Estefan

Serving it up, Miami-style.


Pamella Roland Fall 2012 Show
Beth Riesgraf

Erin Andrews

Jennifer Aspen, Kristin Chenoweth, and Sydney DeVos

Tinsley Mortimer


Rodarte Fall 2012 Show
Anna Dello Russo

Serving up the fashion cray-cray.

Dakota Fanning

Don’t love the shoes with this, and the colors may not be her best friend, but we dig this look.

Maria Sharapova

Meredith Melling Burke

Fabulous coat.

Rachel Zoe

We have another story.

Last night, we attended the Oscar de la Renta show and were seated directly behind Rachel, who was sitting next to Joe Zee. Joe turned around to talk to us and at some point mentioned both our names. Rachel spun around in her seat. “Ohmigod, are you guys Tom and Lorenzo?” Not knowing what else to say because she caught us off guard, Tom blurted out “Yes! Are you Rachel Zoe?” This, after every photographer in the room just descended on her. She laughed and told us how much she loves us, then she asked if we attended her show and if we liked the collection. We answered in the enthusiastic affirmative both times and had a short convo about her and her work. Our life has given us many “sucked into our television set” moments in the last several years, but this was the most surreal of all. She was very sweet and talks EXACTLY like you hear her on her TV show. Best moment of the week.

Stefano Tonchi

Fabulous coat. Seriously, we are on SUCH an outerwear jones after this week.

Tim Blanks

Lorenzo is a huge fan of his and got the chance to tell him so. He looks great; very put together, which is what Fashion Week dressing is about, if you ask us. The ones who show up with every trend tacked to their bodies look silly.


Tory Burch Fall 2012 Show
Brad Goreski

Love the jacket, but girl looks EXHAUSTED.

Joe Zee and Robbie Myers

Linda Fargo

Tamara Mellon

 Everything was going fine until you showed us that purse, Tamara. A bridge too far.


Vera Wang Fall 2012 Show
Leighton Meester

Ooooh, we really don’t want to get into the weeds of fashion analysis, but honey, the yellows and greens in your look all clash with each other. Sorry. Cute pieces, though.

Renee Zellweger

God, does this woman look tense or what? Sweetie, breathe and think of the ocean.

Viola Davis

Viola Davis, Anna Wintour, and Maria Sharapova

Don’t love the sweater she’s sporting, but Viola looks cute. Clearly not a fan of Anna, though. And the feeling seems to be mutual.
