Katharine McPhee

and Joss Stone kept their wits about them as they were swarmed by photographers at the Marc Jacobs show. McPhee, a Fashion Week novice, was the first celebrity to arrive at the New York State Armory building and was soon backed up against a wall by the clamoring press. Stone's hairstylist-who gave the natural brunet her new shade of punk pink-took advantage of his client's popularity, handing out his business cards to reporters.

With her pin-straight bangs and cinched black trench, Alicia Keys played the part of fashionista to a T outside the tents at Bryant Park before a Tracy Reese show. Keys's entourage was small but effective. Her stylist, Wouri Vice, came along to help scout for future fashions while a burly bodyguard kept photographers at bay. Keys was sorry she couldn't stay for the rest of the week, but said she had to get back to Los Angeles to finish recording her latest album.
