Spotting a star of Real Housewives at New York Fashion Week is easy, but all in one front row? Nowhere else but Zang Toi! The Malaysian designer, who Real Housewives of New York City diehards will remember was a fixture in season two, showcased his stunning collection entitled the "Splendor of Santorini" at New York Fashion Week on Sept. 11. The front row at The Skylight at Moynihan Station was packed with A-listers taking in the, well, splendor of the hand-beaded crystal necklaces and marine blue and crisp white separates, dresses and gowns and, of course, picking out pieces for their Spring 2016 wardrobes. Bravo beauties Jill Zarin, Sonja Morgan, LuAnn de Lesseps and NeNe Leakes as well as Orange is the New Black actress Jackie Cruz and the legendary Patti LaBelle were in attendance.

Everyone was in awe of Zang's signature beading, which is done in by hand in his New York showroom, on this cap-sleeve mini.

Patti LaBelle has been a client of Zang's for years, and was loving this caped look with impeccable beading. We bet we will see her rock this look on the red carpet!

Never one to shy away from her opinion, Jill yelled to NeNe Leakes that she needs this dress, and we agree!
