Fashion Week Front Row: Why The Best Seats Go To The A-Listers
Who's making the rounds at this year's NY Fashion Week.
Fashion Week is in full swing, so as per tradition, everyone is looking to the front row at fashion shows as much as the runway. For a while now, the front row has been the place to be seen, not just to see next season’s looks. So it’s about time for a round-up of this year’s most fashion-conscious celebrities.
Robb might play an 80s suburban teen on television, but her style definitely wasn't left behind.
The Rebecca Minkoff show on Friday attracted a whole host of Millenial Hollywood starlets. Anna Kendrick sat next to Carrie Underwood, who sat next to The Carrie Diaries star AnaSophia Robb, who sat next to Girls star Zosia Mamet. In short, it was like a nominees list for a Teen Choice award. Apparently, after taking fashion blogs by storm, Rebecca Minkoff is now steadily conquering young Hollywood as well. And with a collection dominated by short skirts, school girl inspired uniform dresses and uber-trendy dark makeup looks, it’s no surprise that the show appears to the younger crowd.
Kendrick's Fashion Week schedule is packed, with Carolina Herrera, Jill Stuart and several other shows on the list.
Veteran comedienne Tina Fey on the other hand, graced the front row at the Carolina Herrera show. It makes sense that the brand’s geometrical silhouettes and simple, but glamorous gowns would appeal to a more mature audience. Some other faces spotted in the front row were Dita von Teese and the ever stylish Emmy Rossum.
Dita von Teese, who has built a career out of her love for couture, is a permanent fixture at Fashion Week.
The Beckhams were also present at Fashion Week, but it was all a family affair. Harper, Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and of course, Becks Sr. were seated in the front row of Victoria’s show. They watched carefully and applauded enthusiastically as the family matriarch took the stage for her final bow. In terms of fashion, Victoria’s collection was as functional as it was eye popping – often, there was a startling accent, like a gold belt added to an otherwise clean outfit in red, white or grey.
The Beckhams attended Victoria's show like they do everything else - together.
Rita Ora, giving her best Courtney Love impression, attended the DKNY show on Monday. Presumably in an act of rebellion, the New York-native brand presented a collection of colorful outfits, showcased by “real people”. A DJ, a TV presenter, a printmaker, a few students, a biologist, a "night life hostess, and even a tattoo artists walked the runway among the models. The show began with a short film featuring the young New Yorkers about to walk the runway, speaking about where they live — Greenpoint in Brooklyn, for example, and Tribeca — and why they came to New York.
Rita Ora, the current face of DKNY, has gone all rock chick on us lately.
