Fashion Week Spring 08/Front Row/Parties
Rather than focusing on the much-photographed, major-name attendees of New York Fashion Week, we're spotlighting some of the less obvious catwalk watchers and walkers. The above images were snapped all over town, from Alexander Wang's post-party to the Warhol Factory X Levi's X Damien Hirst show at the Gagosian Gallery to the Prada Epicenter Party at the house's flagship store in Soho.
1. Irina Lazareanu at the Calvin Klein Underwear Party
Mr. Klein's drawers pulled in quite the fashionable crowd to celebrate the line's 25th anniversary, including the impeccably dressed Irina. The Canadian model wore one of our favorite outfits of the week-we're particularly crazy about her perfectly broken in boots.
Helena Christensen at Marc Jacobs
Invariably, the biggest scene during Fashion Week is the Marc Jacobs show and after-party. While the front row was crowded with people like Posh and Mischa, our eyes were drawn to Helena's sleek silhouette. Does anyone wears shorts better than HC?
Kate Bosworth at Rag & Bone
The Rag & Bone show is always a draw for fashionable actresses (Cameron Diaz and Sienna Miller have attended) so we weren't surprised to learn Kate Bosworth went this season. Her little white blazer is a perfect fit and we like the tucked-in shirt too.
Vanessa Traina at the Alexander Wang Party
Ms. Traina's taste is held in high esteem around this office. Never one to follow the standard issue uniform her socialite peers wear, she always makes completely confident fashion choices and looks amazing, like she does here.
Riley Keough at the Calvin Klein Underwear Party
Proving that the Manhattanite's all-black wardrobe doesn't have to be dull, Riley Keough looked casually chic at the Hilary Swank-hosted Calvin Klein undies fiesta. Her black-and-white snakeskin Loubis are particularly sharp.
Jessica Miller at the Calvin Klein Underwear Party
The little leather lives on! [Ed Note: That was our first story, awww.] Jessica Miller (recognize her from the Paul & Joe fall campaign?) threw a cool, shrunken jacket on over her poppy-print mini dress for a motorcycle/hippie look.
Maggie Gyllenhaal at Miss Sixty
Welcome back Maggie! Seen here at the Miss Sixty show, we think her high-waisted, wide-legged, sailor-style trousers are perfection. Talk about a hot mama...
Mary Kate Olsen at Warhol Factory X Levi's X Damien Hirst
It wouldn't be Fashion Week without an Olsen sighting, now would it? MK's combination of black latex-ish, painted-on pants with an oversized cardi and neon pink fingernails is in perfect keeping with her unique style.
Zoe Kravitz at the Prada Epicenter Party
Lenny's little one busted out her turban-headband for the Prada party-how appropriate. The easy charm of her white frock and strongly-strapped shoes held their own in a crowd of guests including Julia Restoin-Roitfeld and Diane Kruger.
