Front Row Battles: From Emma Stone and Dianna Agron at Miu Miu to Lana Del Rey and Alexa Chung at Mulberry, who did Spring 2013 FROW best?
Front row seating at the Spring 2013 Fashion Week collections has been an exciting who’s-who jumble of predictable favourites and amazing surprises this year.
Miu Miu’s Spring 2013 collection was presented today in Paris, with Glee’s Dianna Agron front and centre of the It girl mélage that came to check out Miuccia’s latest creations. Looking quite mod, she wore a ‘60s look of a turquoise dress, blue heels and purple tights, all by Miu Miu. Dianna Agron was seen with actress Amanda Seyfried who was wearing a Prada suit, Emma Stone and Felicity Jones both in Miu Miu and fashion week fixture and designer herself Chloë Sevigny. The girls looked like they were about star in the brand’s latest campaign, although Sevigny can already boast about that.
The It girl contingent started their fashion week rounds back in September notably at the hot-ticketed Marc Jacobs show during New York Fashion Week. Alexa Chung was caught chatting up young actress Hailee Steinfeld in the front row, while funny girls Kristen Wiig and Rose Byrne were seen further down taking in the show.
Alexa Chung then moved the crowd onwards to London Fashion Week, where she was seen amidst many enviable front rows. The most talked-about had to be Mulberry’s spectacle of a runway show, where Chung was squeezed in between Vanessa Kirby, Lana Del Rey, Rebecca Hall and of course, Kate Moss. Moss and Del Rey were seen laughing and chatting together, probably discussing the looks they were coveting (or would like to share a namesake with) from Mulberry’s collection.
Which brings us up to Paris, where the fashionable young things didn’t seem to slow down. Supermodel Kate Moss rarely makes appearances at Fashion Week collections, but she showed up to support her friend Hedi Slimane at his debut at Saint Laurent Paris, alongside Salma Hayek and Vivienne Westwood. They of course all received invites to the show, unlike critic Cathy Horyn, but we won’t get into that right now. Elsewhere in Paris, Jennifer Lopez graced the front rows of Valentino and Chanel – with her daughter in tow – to catch the gorgeous latest creations on display.
Of course, the celebrity population that shows up during Fashion Week is always eye candy for those of us that aren’t fortunate enough to be there, but at the end of the day, what makes these shows appealing will always be about the clothes and the craftsmanship that went into creating these collections.
