Britney Spears doesn’t miss being married.

When asked by PEOPLE in New York on Friday how she likes being single, the pop star, who filed for divorce from Kevin Federline on Nov. 7, said: “It’s awesome.”

Spears grabbed the spotlight Friday while at the fashion show for Baby Phat by Kimora Lee Simmons and KLS Collection Fall 2007, which was held at the Roseland Ballroom in conjunction with Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

Wearing a slinky black spaghetti-strapped dress and black peek-a-boo pumps, Spears posed for photographers upon her arrival, and was escorted to her front-row seat just moments before the show started.

As the models strutted on an elevated stage wearing sexy tweed outfits, double-breasted winter coats and big fur hats for the show entitled “From Russia with Love,” Spears chatted at times with her assistant. She applauded with the rest of the crowd when model Alek Wek flaunted a colorful halter dress that dragged on the floor in the back but was a mini-dress in the front. “Oh my god,” said Spears.

After the show, Spears told PEOPLE of the collection: “It was amazing.”

Kimora Lee Simmons, who was backstage after the show, said of Spears: “Sometimes she gets a hard rap…[But] she is a very talented girl.”
