Check out which celebs we bumped into in the front row, vote for you think was the best dressed of the day & read my daily Fashion Week diary!
The Heart Truth Red Dress show on Feb. 9 drew a slew of celebs — and the official first day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week continued the trend! My first show of the season was BCBG, where Katrina Bowden, Kelly Rowland, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Taraji P. Henson, Jennifer Love Hewitt and more crowded the front row, all looking gorgeous in BCBG! I was especially fond of Katrina’s high-waisted skirt and booties — I thought it was edgy yet chic. The stars watched the fall 2010 collection, consisting of loose-fitting, longer frocks with drop-waists and boots — but that wasn’t the only show the star’s turned up to see!
My next stop of the day was Luca Luca, where I was impressed with the vibrant colors, furs, and intricate detailing — and it looks like I wasn’t the only one! Petra Nemcova, sporting a chic bun and summery separates, was all smiles while she took in the collection, before dipping off to relax in the Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge before the next show — which was exactly where I stopped in!
After eating a mini Baked by Melissa cupcake and quenching my thirst with a glass of water in the Star Lounge I found myself backstage at Tadashi Sohji, where the celeb favorite showed off his latest collection of gorgeous jewel-toned dresses and gowns before they came down the runway. Later on, we saw singer Kat de Luna taking in the show from the front row.
Finally, one of the last shows of the day was Christian Siriano. The designer showed off a completely different collection — rather than work with bright colors and vibrant prints, the fall 2011 get-ups were very sleek, made up of black, charcoal, and a pretty green. Mena Suvari, close friend and fan of the designer, was seated right in the front row next to Gabrielle Union!
Now it’s time for all the after parties, but in the mean time check out all the glam get-ups an vote for who you think was best dressed!
