Fashion Week is not all about the clothes, people. It’s prime celeb-stalking territory, as everyone from Solange Knowles to Rachel Bilson attends the shows at Bryant Park to show support for their favorite designers. Every season it varies — which designer will bring in the most Hollywood power. One season it was Rock & Republic, while another it was Miss Sixty. Marc Jacobs, on the other hand, tried to go the no-celebrity route this year, though Madonna and Lady Gaga were in attendance for his spring 2010 collection.We’re calling Max Azria the major celebrity winner this season. For the brand’s Herve Leger show — always a popular one in the PYT crowd — Mischa Barton, Hilary Duff, Amanda Bynes, Lissy Trullie, Leigh Lezark, and Ashley Madekwe all squeezed into their bandage dresses to sit in the front row.
Then yesterday, in strolled Mickey Rourke to the Mercedes Benz Star Lounge, all set and ready for the Max Azria show. Yes, “The Wrestler” dude. Random, sure, but who’s to say he doesn’t love fashion? And when he finally sat down, it was a power front row, one that included Lucy Liu, Kelly Rowland, Katrina Bowden, and gorgeous singer CheyenneTozzi (right). Bravo Max, for ensuring that Hollywood and celeb fans will see your pieces down red carpet after red carpet!
