Figure-skating star Johnny Weir looked a little out of place in the front row of the Dennis Basso show yesterday, cooling himself with an elaborate Asian fan even though the room's temperature was quite comfortable. But the middle-aged socialites around him probably wished they could have had their own fans to cover their faces when, during the middle of the show, one of the lithe models had a wardrobe malfunction with her strapless tan dress. She was halfway down the runway when her top slipped down to her waist, exposing her breasts and eliciting audible groans from the audience. Unfazed, the model walked the rest of the runway topless. When she emerged for her second turn on the runway, she received a huge round of applause for her stoicism — including cheers from the sauciest Real Housewives of New York City, Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan.
