Gayle King: Oprah’s bestie clutched her bootie when she saw it staring back at her from the giant screen at the back of the runway. She looked great in her Donna Karen dress, but it was clear she’s not used to seeing herself from behind. We say embrace those curves, Gayle!
Patti LaBelle and Giuliana Rancic: These two ladies had the BEST time on the runway by far. Patti LaBelle sang and shimmied the whole time in her Zang Toi dress, while Giuliana Rancic, in Notte by Marchesa, had the crowd clapping and dancing with her infectious personality (she was also one of the skinniest celebs up there!).
Laila Ali: A very pregnant Laila Ali looked radiant in a dress designed by A Pea in the Pod. How many women would be brave enough to do that?
Before the big finale, Natasha Bedingfield gave a great live performance of her hit song, ‘Strip Me.’ Check it out!
What an exciting, star-studded way to kick off New York Fashion Week!
