This season, she expressed herself in the front rows of New York's most-exclusive fashion shows, wearing designer looks like this blush-toned ensemble from her pal, Max Azria. "[He] amazes me-he's just so talented," Bush told us. "Everything he makes is beautiful and every runway show he ever does I walk away feeling lighter and happier and inspired." 02 of 14 Day 2: Abaete Joe Kohen/WireImage The actress wore a sheer print blouse and draped skirt from Abaete to the label's presentation. She likely found plenty of inspiration for her fall wardrobe: "It's exciting for all those coats and boots and hats to come out!" 03 of 14 Day 2: Rock & Republic Bryan Bedder/Getty The petite star dressed down a little black dress and Jacob and Co. diamonds with an edgy motorcycle jacket. Along with the designers' more dressy looks, Bush has pledged her allegiance to Rock & Republic's jeans. "I thank these guys for cutting things so well for our female backsides," she once told People. 04 of 14 Day 3: Herve Leger by Max Azria Dimitrios Kambouris/WireImage The One Tree Hill star showed up to support her friend Max Azria at the launch of Herve Leger by Max Azria. Bush wore a curve-hugging striped bandage dress from the line along with diamonds by Jacob and Co. 05 of 14 Day 4: Malandrino Dimitrios Kambouris/WireImage The fashion enthusiast kept herself under wraps at the Malandrino runway show in a double-breasted white coat with military flair. 06 of 14 Day 4: Malandrino Shane Gritzinger/FilmMagic "French women have that allure that everyone speaks about and Catherine [Malandrino], I think, really puts that in her clothing," Bush told us. "It's sexy without trying, it's elegant." Certainly the sheer purple minidress the petite star sported-along with Jacob and Co. diamonds-embodied all those qualities. 07 of 14 Day 4: Ports 1961 Andrew H. Walker/Getty Bush made a quick change of hairstyle before the Ports 1961 show-her sophisticated updo and Jacob and Co. gems complemented the label's ladylike wool dress.

Walker/Getty Bush met the flashbulbs at Rebecca Taylor in a silky black sundress and Jacob and Co. gems. Although her fashion sense never faltered during her week in the front row, her vocal chords took a beating. "I did lose my voice earlier in the week, but I got it back," she told us. 14 of 14 Day 8, Marc Jacobs Dimitrios Kambouris/WireImage The One Tree Hill star finished out her fashion week with a coveted spot in the front row of the Marc Jacobs show.
