Sharon Bush May Be A Baller, But She Wishes She Was A Little Bit Taller

The Douglas Hannant show this morning was a veritable who’s who of New York’s social registry. Upon entering the Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln center, we immediately noticed Jamee Gregory, Jean Shafiroff, CeCe Cord and Hilary Geary Ross, chatting and air kissing one another.

The space had been transformed into an uptown autumnal wonderland, the floor covered in foliage both authentic and artificial, with faux trees climbing around lighting fixtures. Finding our seat, we watched the room fill.

“Please uncross your legs!” an authoritative voice yelled as the lights dimmed. The audience giggled, dutifully sitting knock kneed for the duration of the show. We saw several legs twitch in the coming minutes subconsciously attempting to re-cross. How hard to unlearn etiquette drilled into the youthful mind at cotillion!

As French electro-chic music pulsed, we watched as look after winning look was trotted across the golden leaves. Houndstooth, cable knits, thick jersey and suedes prevailed throughout the collection, appropriately called “Gentry.”

After the show, we caught up with Sharon Bush who is a longstanding supporter of Douglas Hannant. “It’s all very sexy and very elegant and stylish, very classic. He has such a following, as you can see,” she said gesturing around the room to her contemporaries.

Ms. Bush gladly proclaimed that styles are looking up this season. “Some of the styles in the past have really worried me,” she said, her furrowed brow showing concern. “But everything is looking more wearable,” she concluded happily.

But Fashion Week isn’t all fun and games. The most trying aspect of the tents? “Watching all these beautiful tall models. In my net life I’d like to be at least a foot taller,” she moaned.

Princess Olympia of Greece and Denmark 

The only daughter of Pavlos and Marie-Chantal, the Crown Prince and Princess of Greece, has quite the Instagram presence. Her posts include front row shots from NYFW, tacos with friends at La Esquina and soft serve at Cha Cha Matcha, all for her 98,000 followers. The Parsons School of Design student is also quite the jet-setter, spending time in New York, London, Los Angeles and Hong Kong (and that's just in the last month). She pulled the ultimate royal move and was rumored to have been dating her godfather's son, Prince Harry. She is his type: blonde and aristocratic, with a major penchant for hipster, Coachella-worthy ensembles, just like his ex Cressida Bonas. The 20-year-old princess counts Hollywood elite Sofia Richie and fellow royal (and cousin) Talita von Fürstenberg as pals. Unlike other New York City college students who celebrated their birthdays dancing on tables at Greek restaurants in the East Village, Princess Olympia spent hers in Mykonos, despite not speaking a word of Greek. Her mother worked for Andy Warhol before marrying into the royal family. Yes, her whole life is all very Gossip Girl.
