Fashion Week Diaries: The Best Seats Ever At Anna Sui, Where The Entire Crowd Wears Anna Sui
February 19, 2009
What: Anna Sui in the Tent at Bryant Park
Standing or sitting: Best. Seats. Ever. We had press box seats at the end of the runway above the crowd. Again, thank you, TRESemme.
Celebs of interest: Taylor Momsen (Jenny from Gossip Girl) came in and set off a photography firestorm.
The clothes at the show: Think Moulin Rouge and French bohemian clothes wrapped up in one dazzling show… Iridescent tights, gorgeous princess dresses, smart tailored rocker suits
Most interesting outfit in the front row: Anna's own designs from previous seasons
Outfit in the crowd that should have stayed at home: Full-on body leotard complete with sequined cape and ballet slippers
Favorite overheard comment: "Darling, you only got this seat because of me. Now spit out your gum and act like you weren’t raised by wolves.”
You’ve got to love when people show up to a major designer wearing the clothes from that designer. We spotted some of Anna’s cute dresses on a lot of women in the front row, like this Paisley Lace Dress ($337) and boho-chic Mixed Print Dress ($620). Both worn with tall black pirate boots and black tights, these dresses really stood out in a crowd.
