New York Public Library
The great hallway at the NY Public Library served as the runway for the Jill Stuart show, and for the models walking, it was probably the longest thing ever. The models not only had to do one turn, but two and then walk back for what seemed an eternity. Carmen Electra, new mom Tori Spelling came with her husband Dean and momma looked great. JC Chasez who has graced Ok! with his presence at a few shows said he wouldn’t consider starting his own fashion line at this point in his life. “I don’t think I am prepared to give that kind of time and energy,” he said. “I would want to do it well, and the amount of time and energy it takes to do something like this is astronomical.” He did have rave reviews for the designer. “Jill Stuart is actually one of my favorite shows.”
Backstage at Luca Luca, the celebs gathered before heading to the front row. Hip-hop violinist Miri Ben Ari has been making the rounds of fashion week in style. As for when she is on stage, she tells Ok!, “I love being comfortable, first and foremost, and I can’t be too conscious of things that might fall off my body or show.” Miri did perform at Fashion Rocks and wore a long, white vintage dress. “I wasn’t trying to show leg,” she says. “I wanted to look classy.” A Luca Luca clad Carmen Electra told Ok!, “I love to see the new collections and support the designers that I do wear a lot.” Though Carmen can usually be seen a great pair of heels and a dress, on days off, she would rather be in jeans, sneakers and a T-shirt. But from the looks of the dresses at Luca Luca, when Carmen does have to dress up, she certainly has a lot to choose from.
John Varvatos Afterparty
Wilmer Valderamma, JC Chasez, LL Cool J, Alice Cooper of Alice in Chains and Tim Robbins attended John Varvatos’ show at 7 World Trade Center. After, the crowd moved over to Tenjune for the afterparty, which proved to be a perfect, chill evening amongst gorgeous male models. Ok! bumped into JC Chasez where he said, “You are like American Express, you are everywhere.” No JC, you are!
