It’s Day Two of New York Fashion Week, and the celebrity sightings are starting to pile up — no small feat, given that it’s also the beginning of Grammy Awards weekend in Los Angeles, and we’re sure those parties are tempting many a famous face away from this coast. But up at Lincoln Center, the stars who know that what they (and their stylists) choose for them to wear on the red carpet and on the way to the grocery store has an impact on their overall image, and, dare we say? their career as well. So, who have we seen in the front rows so far? Shailene Woodley (kind of surprising, since she told us she only wears second-hand clothing), Alexa Chung and Kristen Chenoweth took in the pretty purples and blues of the Honor show. Abigail Breslin, Megan Hilty and Angela Simmons watched the Cynthia Rowley show together. Kellan Lutz was with Matt Czuchry, Chris Lowell and the NY Knicks’ Landry Fields for Joseph Abboud. Recently resurfaced former child star Anna Chlumsky was backstage at Houghton. Taylor Momsen was snapped roaming in the lobby today. And then there are the afterparties. Vanessa Hudgens, Rose McGowan, Giants star Victor Cruz and Eve were among the revelers at the Leila Shams party last night. Come back all week long for more pics of the stars getting their style on! And check out the video below for stars weighing in on some looks that didn’t look so hot.
It was difficult for us to tear our eyes away from the wonder that is Lindsay Lohan’s new set of bangs and bizarre hairy wrists at last night’s amFAR Gala. But it was an event to kick off New York Fashion Week, so there was plenty more to see. Heidi Klum attending solo for instance, in a dazzling gold-and-black dress. Miss Universe Leila Lopes shining in red. Kellan Lutz looking like he’s modeling in a prom tuxedo catalog. Jennifer Hudson and Cindy Crawford palling around and both showing off some impressive cleavage. Terry Richardson appearing to keep his hands to himself. VH1 News was on the red carpet, so check out the vid below to get their A-listers inside scoop on Fashion Week!

As if New York Fashion Week wasn’t in enough of the tizzy over Lindsay Lohan and her mom Dina slowly merging into one multi-headed spray-tanned entity, now New York Mag reports that Lindsay Lohan threw her drink onto a waitress at yesterday’s V Magazine Black and White Ball. After hurling her booze, Lohan indicated to the moistened server that she was trying to throw it on someone else, yelling “Not you, him!” Well, there ain’t no party like a Lindsay Lohan party, because a Lindsay Lohan party could accidentally blind you!
Not content that she had made enough of a definitive statement (even after getting into a fight with a photographer on Tuesday night), Lohan proceeded to throw her French Fries, and at one point was allegedly seen “sucker-punching a seemingly innocent bystander as she walked past.” Oh my god…Lindsay Lohan was eating French Fries? That’s the most encouraging thing we’ve read about Lilo in a long time. Maybe things are going to turn out alright for her after all…oh right, if she stop throwing things at people.

Depending on your denomination, either Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or Eid came early this year in the form of these Coco photos from the Richie Rich runway show at New York Fashion Week. Thank you again, universe, for this living study in flawlessness.
Ice-T‘s wife slipped into a little My Little Pony-meets-Sexy George Washington hair ensemble yesterday to strut her stuff for the designer’s Spring 2012 show in New York City. It almost goes without saying that a Coco nip slip was also featured on the runway. “I started working with those glasses and out came a boob and I was like, Oh man, this is what I didn’t want,” the model/actress/human angel told E! Online after the show. “I don’t get embarassed, I wanted to walk with perfection and that wasn’t perfection for me.” Coco, everyone other creature on the planet would like to politely disagree.

Guys, we are excited to announced that after thoroughly checking these Nicki Minaj photos from New York Fashion Week, we can confirm that we did not find one single flaw in any of them. Like Nicki’s gumball masterpiece, this look is completely flawless. Anyone else wearing a leopard print leotard, cheetah print wig and a child’s tiger hat would look like the star of a very special cross-over episode between My Strange Addiction and Pet Hoarders (you’re welcome, studio executives), but Nicki continues to kill it. Incidentally, that’s also how she obtained that hat.
You know that Coco Chanel quote that goes something like, “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off?” If the one thing is an abdomen-concealing front bustle, maybe, possibly, you should consider another ensemble all together. Beyonce visited New York Fashion Week today with sister Solange in a Vera Wang beige leather minidress that might best be described as business up top, sea sponge on the bottom. As for Beyonce’s baby bump, the dress manages to both draw your eye directly to her midsection, then force you to look immediately away in confusion. Don’t get us wrong; Beyonce could wear stirrup pants and a fanny pack and still be the most stunning person, pregnant or otherwise, at those runway shows. In fact, we wish she would so that we could get away with wearing them. We just wonder how many dozens upon dozens of designer dresses Bey passed over in favor of…a skirt-shaped loofah?

VH1 caught up with Elizabeth Reaser yesterday at the Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2012 fashion show. Despite looking fierce in a Rebecca Minkoff ensemble, the Twilight star verbalized her NY Fashion Week anxieties and her excitement over attending her very first fashion show this week. However, it wasn’t all fashion talk with
Esme Cullen Elizabeth. Watch the video above and see how she feels about the Twilight Saga coming to an end and what she’ll miss the most.
And you think you’re busy this week: Vanessa Hudgens hit the front row at least four Fashion Week shows in NY, and wearing a different look to every single one. Naturally, she’s making some famous friends: the High School Musical star went hippie to bond with Fergie at the Anna Sui show, and sat next to Kanye West at the Jeremy Scott show in sexy heels and a short cross-covered one-piece. Her most glamorous look was at the Marchesa show, where she unveiled a runway-ready red, ruffled gown. Looks like Hudgens’ shiny suit at the Marc Jacobs show Monday was just the beginning. Get a closer look at her humpday fashion show heroics—and the tight dress she wore to the Diesel show Tuesday—in the gallery below.

There’s something about this super-shiny number that Vanessa Hudgens wore to the Marc Jacobs show at Fashion Week in New York that doesn’t work for us. It could be the shine-on-shine element (too many satiny pink things all in one outfit, it’s a St. Valentine’s Day Fashion Massacre), it could just be that shiny blazers are best left to Mick Jagger and the cast of Dynasty. To be fair, Hudgens looks great otherwise and we’d kill to have legs like that, it’s just the jacket that’s slowly killing us. Check out a few more close-up shots in our gallery and tell us what you think of this ensemble.

Is J-Woww the new Pamela Anderson? Not only does she have the right measurements, but she’s apparently taken over Pam’s gig as Richie Rich‘s trash-fashion (trashion?) sidekick. Jenni Farley and Rich paraded for the paparazzi at the Villionaire By Richie Rich show at the Hammerstein Ballrom, part of New York Fashion Week. While her sparkly, sheer dress was certainly riveting, skater Johnny Weir made an even stronger impression, walking down the runway wearing a tattered skirt worthy of a naughty version of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. No less flamboyant off the stage, he sported a giant fur coat and leggings that left nothing to the imagination. Get an eyeful in the gallery below.
