Hollywood Hits the Red Carpet


Fashionistas rate designers by their new collections -- and the media judge by the quantity and quality of the stars who can be enticed to their runway shows. The city's most stylish week started out slow until Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Marisa Tomei, Camilla Belle and Olivia Munn showed up to the Michael Kors show at Lincoln Center. Nanette Lepore had a front row filled with such friends as Stanley Tucci, Edie Falco and Jennifer Westfeldt. Marchesa managed the media coup of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West front and center, while other celebs there, including Michelle Trachtenberg, Tyra Banks, Madisen Beaty and Stacy Keibler, were utterly upstaged. Said Tucci of his Fashion Week experience, "It's exactly like The Devil Wears Prada." -- Merle Ginsberg
