Front row at Christian Siriano’s show

We spotted Gerard Butler front row for Rebecca Minkoff’s fashion show this week, before he headed backstage to chill with the designer herself, while Hilary Duff and Amanda Bynes took some time to scout out the Herve Leger dresses at the tents. Fashion consultant and television personality Tim Gunn dropped by Project Runway alum Christian Siriano’s showcase and was simply beaming about the style: “He [Siriano] is his generation’s Marc Jacobs.” Big words for this up-and-comer, who landed an all-star front row at his show!

Beyond the fabrics and frills, the parties lit up around town. We watched this weekend as Milk actor Sean Penn debuted not a clothing line, but his latest romantic interest, Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Jessica White. The pair and a handful of other models enjoyed a party at the new hotspot, NY restaurant Abe & Arthur’s.

All around town, more than 700 stores celebrated Fashion’s Night Out with festivities, freebies, and more celebrity faces. Rhianna rocked her way through the Giuseppe Zanotti Boutique before we spied her popping off to the popular store Intermix with Katy Perry and Gossip Girl’s Michelle Trachtenberg. As fashion maven Diane Von Furstenberg put it, “There’s so much partying I don’t know how much business we’ll do. But it’s about building excitement…and celebrating.”
