Fashion Week Spring ’09: JSG’s highlights

We survived another fashion week–though as Simon Doonan pointed out in the Daily, it’s not exactly war. When asked how he prepares for fashion week, Simon responded, “It seems embarrassing that you would have to prepare for sitting around and getting your picture taken and eating hors’ d’oeuvres and going to fashion shows. It’s not like you are going to Zimbabwe or Darfur.”

With that in mind, here’s a recap of a few of our favorite moments.

We kicked off the week on the Brooklyn Bridge for the Fashion Indie sponsored show. It was a fresh venue for an original show. Here the Mandate of Heaven models vogue it up!

Backstage at Diane Von Furstenberg, we loved witnessing the moment Diane greeted hairstylist Orlando Pita. “O-R-Lando” she cooed out with genuine enthusiasm and sincerity.

MAC dinners are always a highlight of our fashion week. This year’s held at Suba was no different. Read the recap by Beyond Beauty Basics.

The Estee Lauder-breast cancer awareness cocktail party for bloggers was truly special and made us feel respected and honored as bloggers. We couldn’t do a better job of writing it up than Beauty’s SPOT.

We were wowed when the Cowboy Junkies played the otherwise lackluster Ports 1961 show. We seem to be in the minority, however. The only other person who was equally impressed was our SO who couldn’t believe we didn’t video tape the performance for him. (Sorry, honey!)

Chatting with designer Joanna Mastroianni at the American Express Skybox before the Milly show was a definite treat.

Munching on Pop Rocks from the W Hotel VIP backstage lounge made us feel like a kid again. Until we followed them up with a glass of bubbly. Bad idea.

We enjoyed catching up with fellow bloggers, Yuli from MyItThings and Nitro.licious at the Louis Vuitton party, almost as much as we enjoyed ogling the hot photographers, playing roulette and drinking one more glass of Moet than we should have.
