While we love the clothing, models, and new styles that emerge during Fashion Week, one of our favorite parts of the epic week has nothing to do with the show, but everything to do with the celebrities who watch from the sidelines, specifically from the front row. From A-list celebrities like Diane Kruger and Kirsten Dunst at the Dior Haute Couture runway show to fashionista and all-around It-girl Olivia Palermo making her way to almost every major show this month, there's a reason why front-row seating is so coveted and so fun to scope out.

Plus, the celebs who do get that front row ticket put on their most stylish outfits for the show—they know they're being photographed and obviously want to look their best. From sexy sequined gowns to edgy pantsuits, front row-style is versatile and can be unpredictable, but always leaves us in awe.
