Following secret performances by Iggy Pop and Courtney Love, the red-hot Don Hill’s hosted the Yeah Yeah Yeahs for the Dazed and Confused after party last night. Owner Nur Khan held court once again as familiar faces such as Terry Richardson, Charlotte Ronson, Juliette Lewis and Josh Hartnett — a fixture at Paul Sevigny’s Read More
At the 10th-anniversary party for Style.com last night, it seemed statement jackets were the order of the evening: immediately upon entering the party, we ran across the artist Terence Koh, who was wearing an immaculate white one with befeathered shoulders. He looked a bit like an art-world angel — and he informed The Observer that Read More
Yesterday, Lance Bass attended his first show at fashion week: Elie Tahari at The Studio at Lincoln Center. Before this presentation, his priorities had pointed him in a different direction — he was busy following sporting events.
“I usually dont even attend any shows, and this is the first one I’ve done all week,” he Read More
“I think this is the most incredible day of all week,” Fe Fendi (the very Italian wife of Fendi scion, Alessandro) told The Observer on Friday. A risky conjecture to make on the second day of Fashion Week–but possible, given we were chatting at the FIT Couture Council luncheon honoring fashion’s high priest, Karl Lagerfeld. Read More
“Betsey likes to watch her shows,” someone said as The Observer first entered the lounge on a upper level of the Hudson Hotel’s Good Units.

After the Alexander Wang show last Saturday, The Observer talked to photographer Ryan McGinley, who used a novel point of reference to size up the designer’s collection: “There were some pieces that reminded me of Blade Runner,” he told us.
We nodded because yes, some of the looks did have that 80s-vision-of-the-future feel to Read More
We saved our best material from Tommy Hilfiger‘s epic afterparty at the Met Opera on Sunday night for the Shindigger column in tomorrow’s paper, which is chock-full of Fashion Week gossip and intrigue. (Check it out!) In the meantime, here’s a little taste of what we said, heard, and witnessed:

“Oh, I beg your pardon, sorry!” Tina Brown exclaimed to The Observer at the Diane von Furstenberg show yesterday. She was looking for her seat and, for a moment, had mistaken us for an assistant. “I’m not asking you for our seat assignment!” Ms. Brown did eventually find her placement — it was in the Read More
Tommy Hilfiger spared no expense for his 25th-anniversary show yesterday; the invitations were notably elaborate, the runway was flanked by Astroturf, and even the run-of-show lists were printed on heavy-duty paperboard. (And that afterparty, at the Met Opera? We’ll get to that later.) It paid off, at least if you measure success by Read More
