Fashion Week Day One: Nicholas K; Michael Kors, Heidi Klum, and Jessica Simpson at the Extra-Long Project Runway Show
Hidden in the back left of Lincoln Center is the action. The white tents embrace the courtyard, adding more light and tree scenery with an easy and accessible sitting area that keeps the non-invitees out -- not nearly as dark and mysterious as we had it in Bryant Park. We like.
While there are still PR reps helping out with check-in, most invites have a code; once you scan it, a nifty receipt is printed out with the name of the show, the date, your name, title, and seat. (Sure makes for easier scrapbooking).
The first show of the morning is for ready-to-wear line Nicholas K, designed by siblings Nicholas and Christopher Kunz -- its camouflage theme included loads of green tones, zombie makeup, hoodies, and layers. The show was produced by tell-it-like-it-is Kelly Cutrone (of The City fame) and her peeps at People's Revolution. She looked more striking than imaginable, and it was great to see her work in the flesh instead of bitching out lanky interns on TV.
What we can tell you is the show was packed with famous fashionistas from Project Runway: guest judge Jessica Simpson, who did not look very fashion forward in a Las Vegas-styled glittery loose-fitting top and ponytail, Harvey Weinstein, Alicia Keys with her husband Swizz Beatz, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, and America's Next Top Model's Jay Manuel, looking quite dapper as always in a suit and hat.
