What: Tory Burch Fall 2009 presentation (not to be confused with “show,” where there are assigned seats and it’s hard to see anything).
Sitting or standing: Standing, like everyone else.
The clothes: In turns clean and opulent, with tailored jackets, full skirts, and a good amount of fur. Also, this exceedingly MObama-like belted purple dress.
Celeb sightings: Kanye West with a sizeable entourage, Kim Raver looking radiant, Amanda Bynes with the same Chanel bag she was carrying at Pamella Roland, and Tory Burch herself, who is tiny and quite gorgeous. Here’s Kanye and Tory chatting like they’re friends (are they? I kind of doubt it) and Kim Raver being smiley.
Trends in the audience: Ridiculous numbers of black booties (I wore tan riding boots, oops), many of which were Tory Burch.
Most surprising happenings: Literally rubbing elbows with the designer, momentarily chatting with a member of the Kantourage.
