The Fashion Bomb does Baby Phat Fall '08

Hey y'all!
So I just got home from Baby Phat, and I'm exhausted! The first day of Fashion Week has been both exhilarating and tiring. But I'm staying up late because I'm sure you want to know how Baby Phat went:)
The energy was amazing, and the room was, as usual, packed with industry heads and New York's fashionable set...
...once I found my seat, I didn't waste much time before I started snip snapping. I commissioned my girl Stephanie to be my official photographer, and launched a picture assault on the front row.
Lisa Raye was my first victim...
...she was very sweet (and gorgeous!). When I told her about the Fashion Bomb, she said that she'd pass the name onto Vivica (Fox) because apparently Viv loves to surf the 'net. Surf away!
I then sidled up to Christina Milian...
....who was also a super sweetheart. She'd made the circuit earlier at BCBG, and plans to stay till Monday. I told her to google the Fashion Bomb, and she said she would.
Lisa Raye and Christina were cool, but I almost lost my mind when I saw...
...Perez Hilton!!!!! Do y'all read his blog? It's like gossip CNN on crack. He's the biggest blogger in the universe. He was dope, perhaps he'll post our cute picture.
Stephanie and I were quickly shooed to our seats, and the show began. For the most part, I wasn't blown away by the collection design wise, though I did love how Kimora played with color....

...seems like plum, chartreuse and red will be the hot color combos for next fall.
Even Ming and Aoki were rocking chartreuse (more of a greenish yellow) and purple:
Cute!
I caught a video of the final walk, take a look:

If you squint, you can see Russell Simmons chit chatting with Joss Stone..and Joss Stone chit chatting a lot with Damon Dash. Tee-hee! Also notice, the girls hug Russell first, then stop to hug Djimon...and then show some love to Tyra. They're adorable.
So after the show, I continued to capture the magic.
Ran into Keenyah (former ANTM contestant), who is very tall and thin in person...
And struck a quick pose with Ms. Jay...
....he better work!
The show was great fun, and an amazing way to open Fashion Week. This weekend, there's a ton on my plate, but I'm only looking forward to Tracy Reese! Stay tuned!
Smootches!

*Thanks Malcolm!
*Oh, I asked Christina where she got this dress...
...and she revealed it was H&M!!! How crazy is that? I thought it was definitely a Diane von Furstenberg! See, I'm not the only budget fashionista:)

Girl!! i am so jealous! I want to see that show so bad. How does it feel to get in with the celebs? I would have been on cloud nine.

Bella said...

Girl, please tell me how to get into a baby phat show?

Stephanie said...

Great post Claire! Amazing coverage and thanks for the video of the final walk!

Re: the video clip, I found it so touching that Kimora saw Tyra in the front row and had the girls show her love. It's like, these two women (now super powerful moguls) have grown up in the industry along side one another. They fought and worked hard, and now they've made it in their own rite. And they have always had LOVE and support for each other. That's what girl power is and I'm so happy for them and the example they are setting :)

hey Claire, luv your blog! Girl you better get some the fashion bomb card or stickers or something to give to these celebs, this is really a great opportunity you don't want them to forget about you...im sure they come in contact with mad people trying to pitch something to them all the time, especially at fashion week! Nice coverage can't wait to see the rest! Keep it up!
