Until the end of the week, the front rows of the Milan shows were a lovely reminder celebrities exist in nationalities other than American. Just because we don't know who they are and Us Weekly doesn't explain why they're "just like us" doesn't mean they're not famous. And then Lindsay Lohan and Fergie showed up and our hopes that all these new celebrities would really catch on were dashed. Here's a roster of who sat in row one in Milan this season:
