Here at Joonbug, we have come up with 3 magnetic force fields that celebrities and models never fail to gravitate towards.
First on our list: The Front Row at Lincoln Center. Anyone who is anyone will be sitting in this V.I.P section of the shows. It’s a perfect place to look for well-known fashion editors, celebrities, other designers and fellow model competition. Though getting to this roped off gold mine is impossible, on-lookers will have just as great a view of them as they do on the show itself. Let’s face it; the front row seats are just as much a part of the show as the collections being presented. And a quick tip with that note, study what they are wearing as well! The front row’s fashion sense is usually very complimentary to what is in style at the moment or trends that will start coming our way. Even if you don't have access to the shows, you can stake out near the tents and check out who's going in and out. It's worth a shot to get a glimpse of your favorite designer/model/star.
When the shows are over, like everyone else, these peeps are looking to kick back and have a good time so finding where they frequent is key to the search as well. Chelsea Market in and of itself is a perfect place to go, however One Lucky Duck’s Pure Food & Wine restaurant seems to be a hot spot for a-list sightseeing as it is a health-nut and vegan’s haven. Another great place to grab a cocktail as well as do some important people watching is across from the Lincoln Center at a place called P.J. Clarke’s.
And remember, this is a week of fashion celebration! Going to after parties is a great way to spot models and celebs during fashion week; some of them are hosting parties, and some are even DJs. The Chelsea Club is a magnet for celebrities and models on a normal night but when fashion week hits, this is the spot to see the stars. On the other hand, fashion week can be hectic and some would rather chill at a chic, low-key bar, than get rowdy at a chic, up-beat spot- decisions, decisions! The Electric Room at the Dream Hotel is the perfect place to kill two birds with one stone: lay back and have a cocktail, while spotting the who’s who! The new Le Baron on Mulberry will also, without a doubt, be hosting some of the hottest, most exclusive parties.
Another (obvious) draw, is The Meatpacking District. Spots like SL, Abe & Arthur's, Catch, The Double Seven, and 1Oak will be packed to the the brim with notables. And even if you can't get past the velvet rope, you can still post outside and people watch. We're sure you won't be the only one!
Good luck with your celeb search and see you at NYFW!
