Fashion Week Travel: Dress Like Justin Timberlake

September 10, 2008 at 8:45 AM | by | ()

Justin Timberlake poses with buddy Trace Ayala (right) and two designers for their William Rast label, which made its debut at New York Fashion Week Spring '09 this week.

Just like last week's US Open, it seems like the Fashion Week tents are buzzing with more celebrities than usual supporting their favorite designers, from Renee Zellweger at Carolina Herrera to Victoria Beckham and Jennifer Lopez at Marc Jacobs. Maybe the recession's convincing them to lobby harder for free clothes!

But how are the reviews for William Rast, the upscale jeans line for which Timberlake made a promo video of himself beaten up? Style.com found the women's line surprisingly wearable, and the Hartford Courant said the runway set "conjured Cracker Barrel meets 'Deliverance'" but "went straight for a modern zing lurking in old wardrobe standbys."

But fashion news standard Women's Wear Daily only snarked about guests' disappointment that Timberlake didn't sing at any point during the show.

Fashion Week Crashing: A Heartstopping Show

Where: Bryant Park [map], New York, ny, United States

Our very own Lost Girl Amanda is crashing the tents and sent us this up-to-the-second report.

Shame on us for believing that Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is nothing more than a big sparkly circus of superficial air-kissing, over-inflated editoral egos, psudeo-celebrity photo ops and eating disorders on parade.

As we learned this morning, the organizers of Fashion Week are totally all about raising awareness for women's health issues. That's why they graciously permitted the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute to commandeer precious tent space and a prime time catwalking slot to present their The Heart Truth Red Dress Collection Fashion Show.

We managed to nab a decent pair of seats and pretended to look unimpressed by supermodel and "Project Runway" host Heidi Klum as she strutted past us in a custom-made Marc Jacobs shift dress with red and black block panels.

Also walking, among others, were Joss Stone in Max Azaria, Allison Janney in Donna Karan, Ana Ortiz in Badgley Mischka, Ashanti in Tracy Reese, and Cheryl Hines in Catherine Malandrino. Liza Minelli even made an appearance!

Sadly, only Heidi's dress will be making its way around the country in the The Heart Truth Road Show. Unfortunately for the rest of America, she won't be traveling with it.
