Fashion Week Diaries: Third Row At Nanette Lepore With That Guy Who Almost Peed On Carrie Bradshaw
February 19, 2009
What: Nanette Lepore Fall 2009 Runway Show
Standing or Sitting: Sitting, third row
Favorite Front Row Outfit: Editors keeping it comfy and low key in grey jersey dresses and oversized black wraps
Outfit in the Crowd That Should Have Stayed at Home: Pink wig and black catsuit with boots like Jennifer Garner's outfit from Alias
Celebs of Interest: John Slattery from AMC’s Mad Men was front row at the show…in a full beard. We know, random.
Favorite overheard comment/conversation: "That guy in the front row? Isn’t that the politician that wanted Carrie to pee on him on Sex and the City?" “Yeah, but he’s on a different show now. Mad Men or something.”
Not only did we have seats but the lovely folks at TRESemme gave us space in the VIP lounge, an escort past the line, and seats right in the middle of the venue. Yippee! Nanette’s clothes had a very rich gypsy vibe. Great coats and jackets with exaggerated shoulders and tons of prints.
This show's front row was awash in little grey jersey dresses with long black sweaters. It’s a very comfortable, no-fuss option for the editors getting ready in the morning and we can get behind it. This Turtleneck Ruffle Dress ($264) paired with this Banana Republic Shawl Cardigan ($69) is a perfect way to steal these two wardrobe staples for your own closet.
