L.A. Fashion Week
This fashionable Project Runway judge raved about Christian Audigier while attending his show on day four of L.A. Fashion Week. "I love him! I think he’s really talented-doing Ed Hardy, and doing Christian Audigier," said Klum, who wore a Giambattista Valli top and Erin Fetherston skirt.

Leticia and Miley Cyrus
"It’s fun and has a lot of colors!" said Miley Cyrus (in J Brand Jeans)-who sat front row at the Christian Audigier show with her mom Leticia-about why she loves the line. Miley shared a quick hug with Heidi Klum before the show kicked off with Kayne West’s "Keep Your Love Locked Down" and model (and former George Clooney flame) Sarah Larson walked the grass catwalk in an asymmetrical dress. The collection featured plaid and striped blazers and Audigier's signature embellished hoodies.
Selena Gomez and Sara Paxton
Young stars Selena Gomez and Sara Paxton wore Eco-Ganik to the line's Spring 2009 runway show. "The line is so comfortable-I honestly feel like I’m not wearing anything," said Gomez, whose on-set practices are equally green: "On our set, we don’t use water bottles anymore and we recycle every single one of our scripts." Likewise, Paxton loves the popular earth-friendly movement: "I think the line is really cute and it’s cool that it’s eco-friendly. People don’t realize how many harsh chemicals go into the drain when they make clothes."
A triumphant Lauren Conrad took a bow at the culmination of her show on day three of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week at Smashbox Studios. The collection included adorable full-skirted mini-dresses and flowy maxi dresses-which Conrad called her favorite look from the collection. The models' loose waves, done by Christine Symonds of the Warren Tricomi Salon, were created by wrapping sections of hair around a large-barrel curling iron. Amy Nadine headed the makeup team, giving the models what she calls "a typical Lauren look with extra drama for the runway." Eyes were lined with Mark liquid liner and lips popped with a beautiful coat of Mark coral gloss that Nadine created for the show called mPowerment Peach (available for purchase soon).
Lauren "Lo" Bosworth
Lauren Conrad said, "It's so nice having my friends and family in the audience-it's a familiar face in a sea of strangers." Friends that attended her show included The Hills co-star, Lo Bosworth (at left) and Conrad's former flame, Jason Wahler. Other familiar faces in the crowd included singer Gavin Degraw and Holly Madison from The Girls Next Door, who arrived with a fellow bunny, both wearing Lauren Conrad Collection dresses.
Green fashion has been a theme throughout L.A. Fashion Week. Amy Smart sat front row to support earth-friendly line Viridis Luxe on day three, wearing a dress from the line.
Actress Mena Suvari struck a pose outside the D'Amore by Marceau show, where inside she watched swimsuit models strut their stuff in risque bikinis and cut-out one-piece bathing suits.
At the end of the first day of shows at Smashbox Studios, Selena Gomez took in the Whitley Kros show wearing a plaid jumper from the designers' collection. The spring line included pajama-like shorts and tops, and flowy tops and dresses in pastel colors.
The week began with a kick-off show sponsored by Gen Art and hosted by Mandy Moore. "I feel like Gen Art always has their finger on the pulse of what's cool, what's next, what's cutting edge-be it fashion or music or art or film," said Moore (wearing Yigal Azrouel). The show included newcomers Nanushka, Quail, Wayne Hadley, Peonie, Wayf, K.Z.O., Laeken and Maxine Dillon, and was held on the roof of L.A.'s Peterson Automotive Museum.
