Gowns to Love

Tomorrow I'm posting pictures and more comments from today's shows but would like to end the day with a big clap, clap and some ground-they-walk-on kissing to: Naeem Khan, Peter Som for Bill Blass, and Reem Acra. Stunning gowns, beautiful construction, and designs that should be making all those Blass ladies in the audience calling Bergdorf's/Sak's/Neiman's ASAP.

The award for Standing Out The Most Amongst The 3 Million Socialites goes to:

Of course, Tinsley Mortimer wearing bright green. Everyone else was paying homage to Mr. Blass with their perfect neutral separates with matching fur stoles, and I even saw what must have been an antique Blass pinstripe suit. Naturally, no one was wildy photographing that.

And the award for Fastest-Show-Exiter goes to:

Anna Wintour. She was out of there ahead of everyone, even me, who had positioned myself perfectly on the aisle closest to the exit so I could sprint for the bathroom after waiting 45 minutes for the show to start (damn all that free Evian). Amazing, she's a mink clad, purple-skirted dervish.
