The front-row mix at Nicole Miller was quite bizarre. Ugly Betty's Mark Indelicato is apparently covering the fashion for Teen Vogue, and thus attended wearing a ginormous camera (which he used throughout) and the world's most studied "Please don't try to interview me, I'm just a writer," body language. Don't worry, Mark we just wanted to tell you that your white-trimmed blazer was really cute. Mark was perched in the vicinity of a very nattily dressed young kid whom we figured we recognized from some canceled soap on the CW, so resplendent was he in his jeweled tie pin and four signet rings. Then another journalist pointed out to us that he was actually "You know, Stephanie Seymour's kid that groped her." While that was not, perhaps, the most elegant phrasing, we did know who she meant Peter Brant Jr., who was photographed frolicking in the sand with a bikini-clad Seymour with his hands in strange places.
Gabrielle Union arrived in what can best be termed as a highly questionable one-shoulder black jumpsuit that zipped up the back, and posed for pictures with seatmate Taraji P. Henson, looking really chic in a leather vest by the designer. "[Nicole] sent me like two bags of garments, and I kind of put it together myself," said Henson, who's had a busy Fashion Week schedule. (So far, she's also attended BCBG, attended a PETA party, and walked in the Heart Truth show). Gesturing at her gray-and-black ensemble, with its thin, translucent sleeves, she explained, "This is too cold for New York, so I layered it with the vest. [Nicole] was like, 'Hey, I like how you put that together!'" We pointed out that Taraji's floaty BCBG ensemble from the other day must have been chilly. "It was cold," she confessed. "But they wanted me to wear something springy, and you know what? You grin and bear it. It's for fashion, and I love it." Per Henson's Twitter, that is true: She has Tweeted both about the freezing weather and how awesome Fashion Week is. "Rainn Wilson taught me about Twitter," she grinned of her co-star in the upcoming Peep World. "I like it because it's a great way for fans to get to know me. I play some really dreadful characters, you know what I mean? My fans didn't even know I could laugh, or that I was funny." And we will vouch for her she was a complete delight.
