Tuesday, 10:09 PM: The show finally kicked off at 9:55, only 55 minutes late. Nicky and Paris walked together to “Surfin’ in the USA” (left). Nicky looks so matronly compared to her sister. Paris strolled the runway again by herself to cheers. Her poofy hair took up most of the catwalk. And oh there’s Mya modeling.
Tuesday, 8:58 PM: Heatherette always entices VIPs to walk and this time Paris and Nicky Hilton will do the honors. I’m just a few feet away from them now in the makeup area. Paris is being worked on while her publicisthandholder Elliott Mintz sits next to her. Cameras are trying to capture the action but someone keeps screaming, “no cameras.” Nicky, in a plaid jacket, is sitting on a stool waiting.

Tuesday, 7:36 PM: I just chatted with Mischa Barton backstage. While I don’t think every woman can pull it off, I think her above-the-knee black, sleeveless Nanette Lepore dress looks cute with her Keds sneakers. She just took her front-row seat and is being blocked by her handlers so the public and press can stop jounding her. Oops, a little fan just squeezed in to give her a note. And get this: Mischa is reading it.
Tuesday, 5:23 PM: Sarah Michelle Gellar just entered the Marchesa show. She looks beautiful in a messy updo and pale strapless dress with a wide black belt. She is so tiny! Especially compared to Harvey Weinstein, who is also in the front row, as he is dating one of the designers of the line.
Tuesday, 5:28 PM: Mischa Barton just came in and the photographers are going crazy! She looks beautiful (and impossibly tall and thin) in a beaded dress and no jewelry, hair back in a bun. She takes her seat as the show begins. . .
Tuesday, 12:30 PM:This must be the day to bring your hunky husband. I see Elizabeth Berkley, looking stunning I might add in head to toe Chaiken, next to her better half Greg Lauren. And one seat down is Kimberly Guifoyle, who is due to give birth to the couple’s first child next month, with hubby Eric Villency.
Monday, 9:35 PM: Just talked to Glenda Bailey, Editor-in-Chief of Harper’s Bazaar. She explained why she is taking Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore around to shows. “Ashton is writing a piece for us. He’s an excellent writer. He’s so quick, and he’s so witty.”
Monday, 9:42 PM: Zooey Deschanel walks into the Marc Jacobs show wearing a sweater held closed by 4 safety pins — no buttons done.
Monday, 3:50 PM: At Luca Luca. Thalia is front row, decked head to toe in Luca Luca. Emmy Rossum is here with her stylist- her 20th birthday is tomorrow! Kanye West and his beautiful fiancee are here too.
Monday, 1:30 PM: At Oscar de la Renta. Picked up some style tips from uber-stylist Rachel Zoe.
