This slideshow requires JavaScript.

There were a lot of celebrities sitting in the front row. Jessica Alba, Anjelica Houston, Debra Messing, Amber Heard…..but I was way in the back in the VIP Box……….and my little camera had a hard time capturing it all.

FASHION WEEK in the VIP ROOM

THESE ARE THE TENTS……….people kill to get a ticket to the Runway shows.

Buyers from around the world show up……….they get FRONT ROW.  Magazine Editors and Hollywood stars are welcome………as well as clients rich enough to afford the high price of Couture.

Next to the Opera House…..in Lincoln Center…..this enormous Mercedes-Benz Wall dominates the Plaza.

Eight “Security Guys” check for your PASS.  The unlucky gets turned away.

Try getting into the STAR LOUNGE……..if your name is not on the list…….FORGET IT!

Once inside the VIP Room……….wine and dine……….champagne and caviar……..and that’s for breakfast.  It flows until midnight.

In the VIP room you can watch the Runway Shows that are in progress……while you wait for the ones you want to see in person.

Don’t remember who she is.  Sorry!

Shimmy and shake.

Paper dresses………just don’t light a match !

One of the new young designers………but who is he?

Once inside the tent…………hundreds of photographers……….and ME!

For the Michael Kors Show…….the models walk so fast………

my camera fails to focus.  Damn !

Michael takes a bow.

The Nanette Lepore show was a lot more fun……….lots of knits.

The hoard of photographers start to gather………waiting to be let in for the next runway show .

MAYBELLINE was the official Make-up sponcer of Fashion Week.

Gretchen Jones….the winner of Project Runway last season……posed for me.

“Am I pretty enough for the Runway”.  Cute……but NO !

Lady in RED………..and lovely.

Bow toes.

When the show is over……….hundreds pour out of the tents…all in a rush……

Andie MacDowell took time to pose.  Her shots for Victoria’s Secret were luscious.

MICHAEL KORS……….all a Blur

Michael is a powerful name in the american fashion scene.  His show for Fall 2011 was in the Mercedes-Benz  tent at Lincoln Center for Fashion Week in New York. The rich and the famous wear his label. Debra Messing, Usher, Jessica Simpson and Pierce Brosnan are but a few of the celebrities who clammer for his clothes.  I would too if i could afford them.

Photographers jockeying for a spot to place their cameras

The roving photographers shooting the celebs  seated in the first row.

.  Lots of strutting and schmoozing is going on.

At this point the announcer is begging people to take their seats.  We are already 30 minutes late because people won’t sit down!

So SIT already !  We’ve wasted another 15 minutes….and we have another show to see at 11………….the fabulous Nanette Lepore.

Another gaggle of cameras are poised and ready to SHOOT>

Lights out!

And the show begins.  ALL-A -BLUR.

The models strut their stuff at such a clip…..

it’s ALL-A-BLUR………..even the fur

Two in grey………..twirl away.

They are shooting like crazy……..non stop.

Beautiful guy…….dramatic coat……….down to his ankles?  I THINK NOT !

Four more…….in grey.

Note the plunging neckline in the undershirt………a bit too much plunge me thinks!

and one in black plastic…..or is it leather that just looks like plastic?

Another three quarter look…….trad but a tad mod.

The red dress [ and the red fur] reigns.

Two of the best looks in the collection.  I get him…..you can have her!

How many dyed beaver’s went into this wild coat?

All 65 models  take a final strut……and the 13 minute show is over.

Michael takes a stroll…….and the crowd ROARS their approval.  ME TOO!  I loved the show.
