Fashion Week Highlights: Day Six

» The scene at Michael Kors was inevitably the central portion of the fashion industry/magazine world/reality TV venn diagram: Nina Garcia, Rachel Zoe with her client Joy Bryant, Heidi Klum, Joanna Coles, and Joe Zee drew the limelight away from Kelly Killoren Bensimon, Aerin Lauder Zinterhofer, Blake Lively, Bette Midler, and Kors' mom Joan. On the runway the (smiling!) models, who were told "you are the most glamorous beach bums in the world," showed off middle-of-the-road, cheerful outfits with polka dots and gingham aplenty.

» Doesn't Harvey Weinstein have any clout in this town anymore? At the presentation of his wife Georgina Chapman's label Marchesa—as usual a load of frou-frou formal dresses with no connection to trends or the real world—A-list celebs were conspicuous in their absence. The lack-lustre guest list included Tinsley Mortimer, Fabiola Beracasa, Beth Ostrosky, Rachel Zoe, Joy Bryant, Guiliana Rancic, and Amanda Bynes (whose name we're even embarrassed to type). On the plus side, however, the new president of LVMH, Renard Dutreil, was there, raising the possibility that he's eyeing the label for his fashion roster. [Guardian, Wireimage, WWD]

» Anna Sui joined the many designers combating the country's downbeat mood with an extravaganza of color and whimsical patterns on the likes of Agyness, Jessica Stam, Karen Elson, Lara Stone and Sasha Pivovarova, as well as an actual cowboy in red pleather. Her spectators— Sofia Coppola, Russell Simmons, André Leon Talley, Todd Oldham, Monet Mazur, Riley Keogh, and Vincent Gallo—were generally appreciative, although "audible groans" were heard in reaction to the music by Sui's friends The White Stripes.

» Phillip Lim's Spanish gypsy-themed show won the prize for the most random front row of Leigh Lezark, Juliette Lewis, Irina Lazareanu, Emmy Rossum, Roisin Murphy, and Barbara Bush Jr. Much more predictably in attendance: Anna Wintour, Grace Coddington, Nina Garcia, Joy Bryant, Olivia Chantecaille, Leighton Meester, and Mary Alice Stephenson, who all seemed genuinely taken with Lim's frills, zips and bows.

» Kai Kühne, the loopy former member of Asfour (now Threeasfour), has a new backer and had his comeback show last night. The highbrow, structural dresses were unveiled to a packed house including Purple mag's Oliver Zahm and Genevieve Jones—who, for reasons best known to herself, was taking her own picture by holding the camera at arm's length.
