We Heart Denim...Honest
I'm not sure if any of us Style Council gals were at the denim shows last night...
Buffalo, Yanuk and Taverniti were the designers showing, and even though denim and sportwear are LA's greatest exports - or at least most lucrative - how exciting can a pair of jeans get, right?
Maybe that's why I stayed home and worked on my book, it's called 'Vincent Gallo Thinks I'm an Asshole'. I will, however, be in attendance at tonight's alluring roster of shows: Corey Lynn Calter, Chulo Pony, and Jack Nicholson's daughter Jennifer Nicholson, a former interior designer (she did Courtney Love's pad) who started making clothes five years ago. I hear the mighty Cher might even make another Smashbox appearance in support of the Nicholson clan.
Chulo Pony is a Vancouver-based line which is part of the Nettwork Music Group, the record/management group that represents Avril Lavigne, Dido and Sarah McLachlan. The women's wear label was founded in 2002 "inspired bythe connection between the vibrant music scene and teh fashion savvy individuals that support it". Let's hope for rockin catwalk music at that show then!
Anyway, while I cannot comment on the denim fashions last night, seeing as I wasn't there, I can tell you what 'stars' were there, thanks to someone called Sogole Honarvar from BluPrint PR who has been emailing me daily celeb-related dispatches from Fashion Week. Here's what her email said this morning - frankly, I don't think we missed much...(note how Sogole diligently highlights the words Mercedes Benz, unlike every fashion journalist in town who consistently forgets to plug the sponsors)
"Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Smashbox Studios continued on Tuesday, March 21 with the hottest denim designers in town showing their Fall 2006 collections. Celeb sisters Hilary and Haylie Duff were on hand for the Buffalo show while Tamara Mowry (Sister, Sister) and Ryan Starr (American Idol) posed for pics outside of the Mercedes-Benz tents.
Denim line Yanuk also brought in the celebs, with ice-skater Tara Lipinski and "Dancing with the Stars" Tia Carrere (looking svelte in a cream suit). Playboy bunnies were also abounding for denim night at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and posed for shots outside of Smashbox.
Perhaps the hottest show of the evening was Taverniti, with an entry line that swung around practically to the front doors! VIP Eve didn't have to wait in any line, however. The rapper showed up at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week right before the show (wearin' stylin shades at 9pm) and was whisked right in by her personal bodyguard after posing for photos. Celebs Diane Farr and Cris Judd were also on hand for the final denim show of the night. "
