The Eight-Day Week
We’re feeling sociable tonight—after a week spent indulging our cinematic urges, it’s time to leave the theater and blink our way through the glint of sequined gowns. We’ll start at the God’s Love We Deliver Golden Heart Awards Celebration, where Michael Kors and Glee creator Ryan Murphy are to pick up awards for their philanthropy. Read More
“Please return to your seats!”
The typical orders were barked from the front row at Michael Kors on Wednesday, September 12 at 10 a.m. Too much too early. Due to some recent Team Kors PR shifts and rifts, we couldn’t locate the familiar faces that would help The Observer with its conquest. Where were Savannah Read More
While the Met was swarmed by A-listers Monday night, we only heard news about Beyonce‘s dress this morning. Upstaged by the attendance of Tim Tebow, these celebrities dispersed to three locations the Met in order to fully dance away the pain: the Ukrainian Institute of America, the Boom Boom Room, and Crown all hosted parties that were hit up by roaming models, actors, and musicians.
Fashion Week Observed
We braced for the worst on the last day of New York Fashion Week, when Calvin Klein (and KCD) sent The Observer this alarming email warning:
“As a reminder, you are confirmed to attend the Calvin Klein Collection Fall 2012 Women’s show today at 2PM. We have been made aware that the Occupy Wall Street Read More

By 9:50am Michael Kors was a mob-scene! Kors’ publicists attempted to keep the clutter to a minimum, but how can you with Jessica Alba, Anjelica Huston, Katie Couric, and Debra Messing in the front row?
“Can you make sure we get this specific shot of the seating?” The Observer begged publicist Savannah Engel…

The Lease Beat
Ted Baker, the high-end clothing retailer, will open a flagship store at 595 Fifth Avenue, it was announced today.
The U.K.-based company signed a long-term net lease for 12,000 square feet at the corner of 48th Street and Fifth Avenue, just down from retail icon Saks Fifth Avenue. Ted Baker will use three of the five floors of the building, which they will rent in its entirety, for retail, while the balance are for office and showroom uses. Just a block from high-profile tenants Michael Kors and LaCoste, the space could command up to $2000 per square foot, sources not affiliated with the deal speculated.
We felt woefully under-dressed as we stepped into the 2nd floor foyer of the Waldorf-Astoria, the entrance to Bette Midler‘s Hulaween party. The theme was Día de los Muertos – the Mexican Day of the Dead – and although we felt like zombies after occupying Wall Street earlier that Friday evening, we weren’t decked out in any apparel that suited the $1,000-a-plate dinner.
Fashion Week 2011
The Michael Kors show was packed this morning. Volunteers tried with moderate success to heard guests and photographers off the runway as Michael Douglas, Rachel Zoe, Anna Wintour, Patricia Field and Zoe Saldana made their way to the front row. We didn’t even recognize a demure looking Courtney Love, who had tamed her signature rat’s Read More
Even exquisitely uncomfortable pointy-toed dress shoes can’t keep Michael Kors from practically any retail neighborhood in the city he so desires.
It reportedly took ages to lure the designer to check out Unago’s former space on Madison Avenue for his New York City flagship. But once they got him through the door, Read More
