Day 6: At the star studded Luca Luca show, whose ultra feminine and modern designs garnered a standing ovation from the crowd, OK! had two super quick chats. First, we caught up with How Do I Look? host Finola Hughes who confided that “This isn’t as edgy as I love but I think the clothes are so beautiful and wearable that I love to come to the show.”
Then, OK! quickly talked to JC Chasez, who’s been all over Fashion Week. “My last show will be Varvatos because you know I gotta know about the guy’s clothes.”
Day 7: Before the Heatherette show, OK! hung out backstage at the VIP Lounge fueled by Bustelo Cafe everyone from Lance Bass to Mya showed up to guzzle down the coffee drink and mingle with socialites like Tinsley Mortimer and socialite turned actress Bijou Phillips. The vibe was like a party where only the cool kids get invited.
Then up and coming rapper Lil Mama hit the stage to get the crowd going before the celeb studded show. Everyone from hip hop mogul Diddy to pop tart JoJo to model Tyrese showed up to check out the eccentric spring collection from Heatherette designers Richie Rich and Traver Rains. The theme: fabulous Americana drenched in glittery flamboyance with lots of toulle and lace thrown in.
OK! caught up with a few on the front row attendees. First JoJo, who aside from being a pop star has some other plans for fall, “I’m working on a movie in October in Toronto. And, I’m writing for other artists. And, I’m studying for my SAT’s.”
Then we caught up with Jake Shears from the Scissor Sisters who is ready to just chill. “I’m glad to be home in New York and actually come to a show. It’s the only show I come to. The Scissor Sisters are working on a vacation right now, which is awesome!”
Finally Lance Bass, who’s been too busy in his role in Hairspray to hit up too many shows assured OK! that his time on Broadway has been “Awesome!”
