Fashion Week is one of those amazing events that brings people together; awesome people. And because space in the front row is limited, people you wouldn’t normally see together somehow end up sitting next to each other and posing awkwardly for photos. You know, with that half-smile that is supposed to convince us they are friends in real life but you know they’re not. Or those candid shots where they pretend to be engaged in small talk but you just know they don’t have anything to say to each other (see Nicki Minaj and Anna Wintour). Yep, this is the shit we live for!
Rachel Zoe, Gia Coppola, Alexa Chung and Pharrell Williams snuggle together on the shag carpet at Proenza Schouler. They look so comfortable with each other; just check out Alexa’s eyes.
We’re digging Pharrell’s shoes though.
Left: Anna Wintour, Nicki Minaj (her tiger) and Justin Timberlake. Anna smiling? Yeah, you know she’s uncomfortable!
Christy Turlington smiles politely beside an animated Naomi Campbell while Sting scans the room for the nearest exit at EDUN (Bono and his wife’s label).
Joy Bryant looks on over Angela Simmons who seems annoyed Kelly Osbourne is blocking her view. Kelly (wearing some weird white gloves) smiles on obliviously as Nicky Hilton strains her neck to see over a day-dreaming Whitney Port at Charlotte Ronson. Too many stars, not enough spotlight to share!
Meanwhile over at the ELLE Fashion/NEXT show Iman could not be more unimpressed. Joe Zee, Julianne Hough and Whitney Port all smile awkwardly as they wonder why Karolina Kurkova dressed like Mick Jagger.
