Front Row at New York Fashion Week, Part 1

Celebrities from A-list to Z-list are sitting front row at the runway shows of New York Fashion Week.

The Glee cast will be all over New York Fashion Week – they did a music video promoting Fashion’s Night Out, after all. Lea Michele dutifully hit the Jason Wu show in demure curls and a prim-and-proper ensemble. I think she looks adorable. Sexy shoes, adorable skirt length, pop of color in the purse, flattering top, red lips.

Could we just wear shirts, please?

Ugh, I’m SO over Heidi in a glittery jumpsuit. This is not two seasons ago, Klum. Keep up.

Haven’t we moved past the ace bandage dresses yet? I feel like I’ve seen J.Lo.Hew. in this exact dress at every B-list event of the last two years. I’m OVER it.

Cute, but a little dull. #dontborenina

Looks like she’s in McQueen, the fabulous old bitch. I can’t believe she’s still wearing shoes like that at her age, but God bless her for it.

Corrine Bailey Ray is the one who sang that “Girl, put your records on” song. I had no idea she also had fierce style! But her hair is DELICIOUS, I love the light, bright makeup, and the dress is perfect on her. Super-flattering, great fit and proportions, and fabulously adorned in a sort of modern flapper way.

I don’t know who she is, but I need to say two things: 1) Color blocking is HUGE this season; get ready. 2) If this were a size bigger, this bitch would look pretty amazing. But she needs to learn the art of accessorizing.

I don’t know things about basketball, but my brain exploded at the idea of Dwayne Wade chatting up Anna Wintour during a fashion show, so I had to include him. (Also, because my old roommate Jill is all about him.)

Meh. The colors are drab and it just kind of hangs on her in a sad watercolor sort of way. And the shoes don’t work with it at all.

The skirt is okay, the blouse is kinda fug, and none of the pieces in her outfit really go with one another.

SNOOZE. Stop going to things if you’re going to look boring.

I WILL CUT OFF THE NEXT SLOPPY BRAID I SEE ON THE RED CARPET. Also, get your roots done. And your shoes look stupid.

She’s like, the universe’s most boring dresser, but who can resist her blue eyes with this dress?

I just threw up in my mouth. Who destroys such a beautiful skirt with that t-shirt? Who pairs that t-shirt with that blinged out necklace? Why hasn’t she fired her colorist yet?

Cute, but the invisible shoes are so boring. Love the color and shape of the dress, though.

I just can’t imagine why anyone would look at ANY of those items she’s wearing and say, “Yes! This is what you should wear!” I couldn’t hate this more if I tried.

ANNA DELLO RUSSO at the Peter Som show

I’d never dream of telling the editor of Japanese Vogue that she needs to cover up, but I prefer my Anna Dello Russo in a dramatic gown, wearing a fascinator adorned with pineapples.

Okay, I don’t hate this. If it were 1997, I would think this was the chicest thing I’d ever seen. However, it’s not.

LINDSAY LOHAN at the Cynthia Rowley show

Lindsay Lohan can now officially be mistaken for someone three times her age. I don’t know when she decided to share wigs with Donatella Versace, but Donatella better be careful. You don’t want to know where Lindsay’s head has been.

The shirt is just a little too much with the pinstriped suit, and the cranberry stripes on the tie are not at all my thing. But the suit itself looks fantastic on him.

Swap the tie, and he’d be absolutely perfect. I’ve never been into vampires, but I’ll admit his eyes are incredible, even if his collar is slightly too big.

Nice colors, but a slimmer fit jacket would flatter him more. And it’s all a bit shiny, isn’t it?
