Afterparties, VIP rooms, blue cocktails—celebs did plenty of mingling during Olympus Fashion Week. At a Coty bash, the Olsen twins bumped into Jennifer Lopez, whom they’d never met, and an excited Lopez invited them to her table. Surrounded by bling at the opening of the Sean John flagship, Vivica A. Fox declared, “The energy in the air is just superb.” Still, the airborne buzz wasn’t enough for everyone. “You have to get lots of candy to keep your energy up,” said Lil’ Kim at a Baby Phat party, “and make sure your driver is outside at all times.” Preferably carrying cash: At the Sean John bash, Naomi Campbell paused at a pile of luxe pillows. “Ooh, these are so soft,” she exclaimed. “I’m going to go shopping right now.”
