Socialites Chilly Toward Vera Wang
From the outside, Heatherette may have been a total fiasco, but our Jada Yuan found that inside was nothing but love. Backstage, Richie Rich's aromatherapist was dressed like Dorothy but didn't seem to know why. A misty Lydia Hearst remembered the boys from back in the day ("I really consider them part of my family") while Omahyra favored Heatherette for the bloodlust: "This is the shit. Everybody's fighting to get in here." Watch the video.
An army of writers, reporters, and bloggers is chronicling Fashion Week. Here are a few things we learned from them: • Of course K-Y chose the Heatherette after-party to introduce its new lubricant, "Intrigue." [Heard on the Runway/WSJ] • For the rest of this week, the Payless on Fifth and 39th has the Abaeté for Payless shoes that showed on Monday. [Fashionista] • If Ashley Olsen is in New York this week, so far she's skipping Fashion Week. [PopSugar] • Can't find Proenza Schouler on Target's Website? You can bet it's on eBay. [FlyPaper] • Who are the Top Ten New Faces at Fashion Week? So far, we know three. [Of the Minute] • Could Diane von Furstenberg have scuttled out of that CFDA panel on models' health any faster? [Off the Runway]

Who exactly did Derek over-reference? Can they take away Doo.Ri's CFDA award? And is Narciso just bored?
