New York Fashion Week sees a slew of chic fetes
Fashion Week may be a bit quieter this season — but, don’t worry, it’s still a starry affair.
Susan Sarandon, Drew Barrymore and Danielle Brooks sat front row at Christian Siriano’s show at the Empire State Building before guests headed to Angie Mar’s upscale West Village eatery, Les Trois Chevaux.
We hear Alicia Silverstone, “Ted Lasso” star Hannah Waddingham, and models Karen Elson and Coco Rocha — who both walked the runway — dined on dover sole and roast pheasant at the popular restaurant where Siriano designed the uniforms.
Guests then headed to the Blond to party, we hear.
Designer Sergio Hudson, who has dressed Vice President Kamala Harris and Michelle Obama, also held his afterparty at the Blond. We’re told Stephanie Mills, who played Dorothy in the Broadway run of “The Wiz,” flew in just for the occasion and serenaded the designer.
A source tells us he has been creating looks for her performances, and that they’re so close, Hudson calls Mills “mother.”
At an event celebrating fashion line Alice + Olivia at Zero Bond, guests including Katie Holmes, Lea Michele, and “Bachelorette” star Tayshia Adams listened to a performance by poet Mahogany L. Browne called “The Song of She.” Pregnant Nicky Hilton Rothschild — who has been a fan of the brand, along with her sister Paris — rocked a “size zero piece from the collection,” a source told us.
Meanwhile, girly brand Love Shack Fancy held a pink and frills-filled party at the Plaza for designer Rebecca Hessel Cohen’s 40th birthday, which was attended by billionaire oil heiress Ivy Getty, and Lili and Howard W. Buffett.
Masks — the fun masquerade kind, not the pandemic variety — and gloves were given out at the Versailles-influenced party, which also included a number of cakes.
We hear that the party lasted till 3 a.m., and that Ramona Singer showed up. A source said the “Real Housewives of New York” reality star, “tried to swing from a chandelier, literally.” Added the source, “Also at the party was Patrick Dempsey, who has been working as a designer for a California brand, and is in NYC to check out new ideas.”
Fashion Week favorite The Daily Front Row celebrated 20 years with a bash at the Paradise Club at the Times Square Edition with models Maye Musk, Shanina Shaik, and “Sex and The City” author Candace Bushnell.
