Greta Gerwig Admires Fashion, and Helen Mirren, From Afar

Greta Gerwig at Cynthia Rowley's show.

Adorable, non-makeup-needing Greta Gerwig isn't exactly the first celebrity you'd expect to find front row at a fashion show. But the star of Greenberg — and, more recently, Natalie Portman's sidekick in No Strings Attached — randomly showed up at pal Cynthia Rowley's artsy runway earlier this week. She's friends with the designer, she explained, as well as with Justin Theroux and his long-time stylist girlfriend Heidi Bivens, who may take her to some more shows later this Fashion Week. We talked to Gerwig about why fashion is like a cupcake, what it was like working with SNL host Russell Brand, and what she'll be doing on Oscar night.
