Breaking: Medical Emergency at the Tents!
Our diligent correspondent reports: "They're saying a person is having heart palpitations — not sure who it is, but they're not letting anyone past check-in. I can hear sirens, but I assume they're not going to send paramedics in through the front."
Gucci's Creative Director Has Heard About Brooklyn
Gucci's new Fifth Avenue flagship store is the subject of a surprisingly long article in today's WWD. At 46,000 square Trump Tower feet, the store dwarfs the 36,000-square-foot Abercrombie across the street. Creative director Frida Gianni says, "The idea was also to create a special environment with an emphasis on transparency and light." Perhaps she's alluding to the bling, which will be sold in an adjoining three-story jewelry shop. (There's also a VIP section, natch, accessible by a separate entrance and elevator.)

Introducing the Prettiest Blog on the Block
For the past three Fashion Weeks, Nymag.com has obsessively covered the scene both inside and outside the tents, from the life-changing (how late did that last Marc show start?) to the minute (Nicky Hilton, did you seriously ban us from your show? WTF?).
Happy Fashion Week: Crappy Weather, Crappy Economy
Good morning! Are you ready for the first official day of Fashion Week? Let's start with the weather forecast: We're due for rain — no, wait, it's positively biblical out already, so put those open-toed satin pumps back on the shoe rack. Don't bother straightening your hair. And make sure you've found your big umbrella (it's by your air conditioner) with the extra-wide span to reduce sog and maximize chic. Yes, it's a nuisance, but it's a handy weapon for any bitch who tries to edge in on your seat. Just be sure to keep it close at your side and not sticking out on the runway, for the models are fragile … and the only ones who can fit into the clothes we need to see over the next seven days.
