We got a special look at the Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2010 front row, which was packed not just with the usual fashion crowd but with DVF pals and luminaries like Graydon Carter, propietor of the crazy-hot Monkey Bar and the Waverly Inn. When Carter and his friend Fran Lebowitz were asked if they could be photographed together, Lebowitz quipped, “Oh good. I’ll look young.”
They both have great taste in blazers.
Tons of celebs and fashion faves – Michelle Tractenberg, Peaches Geldof, Carine Roitfeld and more after the jump.
A model takes a break outside. Really cute hair and makeup. DVF was one of several designers who had their models in braids.
Classic beauty: black sunglasses, red lips, and a flash of bling at the ears.
Sarah Rutson looking amazing in Alexander Wang.
Fern Mallis in blue.
Blue cardigan and print skirt, DVF front row.
Lauren Ezersky in her signature all-black.
Diane von Furstenberg leopard-print dress and Chanel bag.
Great legs! And LV bag, too.
Patricia Field fields interviews in the Diane von Furstenberg front row.
Two DVF dresses. Perhaps at Diane von Furstenberg more than any other show, the guests wear the designer. Almost every NYC woman has at least something by DVF – and her clothes only come back in style.
His and hers gray jackets – hers with a little bling.
Suzy Menkes shows off a classic DVF bag.
Love the combination of a feminine, white eyelet blouse with tough, lace up boots.
Simon Doonan with a monogrammed Goyard bag – fabu!
Olivier Zahm of Purple Magazine and Peaches Geldof.
Terry Richardson and Carine Roitfeld. Carine is rocking the Karl Lagerfeld look with those mirrored sunglasses.
Little black dress, DVF front row.
Anh Duong in dark blue lace.
Kate Lanphear has repurposed this Princeton sweatshirt brilliantly! Anything with a tiger on it is badass, especially when paired with her signature studded bracelets. Princeton should be proud to make the front row at DVF.
Rachel Zoe can wear these tricky round sunglasses as well as Kate Hudson in Almost Famous.Very flattering on her. Great ring too – the girl knows how to accessorize.
When sitting next to Patricia Field, you’d better wear something wild: a feathered top.
Michelle Tractenberg in dark nailpolish. Looks a lot like OPI’s Siberian Nights.
Blake Lively and Marisa Hargitay take in the show.
Maybe I’ve been watching too much True Blood – OK, I’ve definitely been watching too much True Blood – but DVF’s Greco-Roman incluenced gypsy theme for spring 2010 reminded me of maenads! It was an intoxicatingly beautiful show.
Painterly prints and loose, flowing silhouettes.
After the show, Bill Cunningham stepped out in his signature blue jacket and khakis. I don’t think it’s an accident that this blue jacket matches his eyes. There was a fabulous article about him in the New Yorker in March if you didn’t catch it: NYer: Man on the Street.
Virginia Smith of Vogue.
Beautiful yellow gold skirt paired with black ankle boots and a Miu Miu bag.
Meredith Melling Burke. Her shorts may be that lightweight leather that’s making an appearance in Helmut Lang’s fall line. The latest version of leather shorts and pants looks very polished, especially paired with a shrunken blazer.
Great bright blue boyfriend blazer paired with a glitzy statement necklace.
A flounced miniskirt and embellished heels.
Joe Zee of Elle, presumably a-Twitter!
