    New York Fashion Week: Day 5

    Chris Benz's colorful collection of party frocks, including a cream floor-length stunner, had Meredith Melling-Burke (okay, I'm a little obsessed with the Voguette) in such awe that she didn't acknowledge me. "Sorry, I am transfixed by this vision!" Keep an eye out for that one in a fall issue.

    After moseying around the presentation for a bit, I noticed a trend with several well-heeled editors: limping. Seems that sky-high heels are taking their toll. I asked one if she could switch them out for more sensible shoes in her bag. "Hell, no! They look too good." "But darling, you're limping." "Champagne dulls the pain!" That's hardcore.

    I was off to check out Michael Bastian, but someone's assistant gave me the wrong address and I ended up in the projects! So I thought it would be amusing to see Marco Hall, whose muse is Andre J, the bearded drag wonder who wore his looks on a French Vogue cover. Well, Mr. Hall needs to be a bit friendlier with the sewing machine, and where the hell was Andre? Club diva Lady Fag closed the show to a round of applause.

    Finally I ran over to the opening of the new Diesel flagship in the old Gucci space on 5th Avenue and 55th Street. The space wasn't as fun as the old Diesel on Lexington, but the tableau vivant in the window was highly entertaining. Downtown denizens Patrick McDonald, Kenny Kenny, Richie Rich and Sultana sat around a table, eating delicacies from Le Cirque. Needless to say that caused quite a stir on 5th Avenue, aka Recession Row.

    We love Glass Candy so much we could eat a whole bag of her, and not only because she contributed music to our latest multimedia fashion shoot, Bright Angles. Here she is at last night's launch of Adidas Originals' new denim line by Diesel. Chromeo, in the other photo, also performed. How much do you love his his legs (the ones on his keyboard, that is)?
