NY Fashion Week: Day 2
NY Fashion Week: Day 2
Emma Roberts and Leighton Meester
Despite the rain, Leighton Meester helped friend Kira Plastinina host a private shopping event at the designer's SoHo store. While guests enjoyed milk shakes, burger sliders and candy bars while perusing the clothes, the Gossip Girl was busy taking pictures with fans and catching up with fellow actress Emma Roberts. Meester stole a moment to look through the designs herself: "It's up to the moment and very cool, and the best thing about it is it's affordable," she said. "Even though I get to wear really high-end designer items... in my daily life I would never be a snob about wearing a certain designer, and I feel so much better about my bank account when I don't spend everything on something that's just for fun!"

Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson
It was a family affair at the Charlotte Ronson show with her sister, Samantha-who was accompanied by Lindsay Lohan-and mother, Ann Dexter Jones in the front row, while brother Mark Ronson worked the turntables. Lohan proudly sported a form-fitting denim dress from the '80s-inspired collection, and Samantha-wearing her trademark rocker-chic look-debuted darker locks.
Mary-Kate Olsen, Jessica Szohr and Chace Crawford
Fashionable actors Mary-Kate Olsen, Jessica Szohr and Chace Crawford intently took in the Rock & Republic Spring 2009 fashion show from the front row. Before the show got underway, Crawford (wearing a Rock & Republic jacket and Diesel jeans) and Gossip Girl co-star Matthew Settle kicked back on quilted black-leather ottomans and sipped Peroni beer in the exclusive celebrity lounge.
was New-York chic in an inky look at the Elise Overland show. The Dirt star-who often wears clothes by the designer-sat front row to check out the pastel cocktail dresses and leather designs that were featured.
Ana Ortiz and Vanessa Williams
With all of the excitement surrounding Sex and the City this year, fashionistas at the Edison Ballroom were hungry to see the new line called Patrcia Field Destination Style New York for HSN by Patricia Field (the show's designer) and David Dalrymple. Ugly Betty actresses Ana Ortiz and Vanessa Williams pointed at the flirty dresses that swept down the runway during the high energy show. "I just wanted to reach all the Sex and the City audiences all around the world and say 'Hi!' and show a little of my work," Field said. "Here it is, you can afford it, it's cute, enjoy it!"
(in Alexander Wang) joined the roster of stars who celebrated the 15th anniversary of hip store Intermix in New York. "I love how Intermix styles their windows," raved the Ugly Betty actress. "They present the clothes in such a cool, funky, unexpected way!" Teaming up with the new Pink Blackberry Curve, the store hosted a private dinner and a blowout party at the Bowery Hotel, where the well-heeled guests danced to tunes spun by DJ Eclectic Method.
Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Robert Buckley
and Robert Buckley were also among the stars who helped light up the red carpet at the Intermix soiree. "I discovered Intermix when I came out here to New York," said Lipstick Jungle heartthrob Buckley, who turned heads all evening. "It's a fun shop, and I figure they'll throw a good party. I am yet to be disappointed!"
was a stunner in a white top and black skinny jeans at the Rosa Cha show, held at The Salon in Bryant Park. The actress made a pit stop at the MAC Cosmetics backstage VIP lounge, where the brand's pro team gave celebrities touchups-a service that came in handy during the day's downpour of rain.
In a setting that's not unfamiliar to her Lipstick Jungle fashion-designing character Victory Ford, Lindsay Price struck a pose in a floral frock at the Verrier show, held at The Salon at Bryant Park. The actress mingled backstage before the show and sat front row to watch the feminine spring designs.
"When I saw this [Ruffian] dress, I loved it!" raved actress Emma Roberts, who was perfectly dressed for the design house's fashion show and their post-show party at the Royalton Hotel. "I love the colorful embroidery, and how it's a little black cocktail dress." The Nancy Drew star also took a liking to the spring collection presented at the show: "I loved seeing all the flowy materials they used," she said. "There's just so many looks to Ruffian. You can dress it up and be really fancy, or dress it down and go to the beach wearing it."
