Note: Don’t make Peaches Geldof mad. Today at Diane von Furstenberg, Peaches — overwhelmed by the crush of photographers who were ignoring her in favor of snapping pics of One Tree Hill star Shantel VanSanten — turned to her companion and snapped, “this is making me cray-cray.” She then removed her leather jacket with such dramatic and excessive vigor that she actually hit us on the arm with a surprising amount of force. She neither apologized nor looked at us. Poor Peaches. Being ignored in favor of a CW starlet must really sting. The best cure for that, as far as we know, is getting an actual job. Maybe she can try that before next season and see how it changes things.
For her part, Shantel seemed as far from cray-cray as a girl could possibly be — not to mention, she’s a tall, gorgeous drink of water who was working a brave pair of leather pants. Shantel wasn’t the only One Tree Hill actor in the house: Sophia Bush made a quick change out of her Herve Leger and into a DVF frock and took a seat in the front row between 90210’s Shenae Grimes — who had on way too much makeup, and therefore managed to look about 38 years old — and Molly Sims, who is currently suffering from a vicious case of tanorexia. Sophia’s boyfriend/co-star, Austin Nichols, was sadly forced to sit behind her, like an assistant, but he didn’t seem too fussed by the snub. We didn’t notice the OTH stars interacting at all, so we can only assume they’re in some sort of blood feud, much like we apparently now have with Peaches.
And speaking of blood feuds, also sitting in the front row was the world’s greatest expert in highly publicized fatwas, author Salman Rushdie. According to our sources, he and DVF are old friends. Diane runs with quite a cosmopolitan crowd, as we also spied Fran Lebowitz and original socialite and sister of Jackie Onassis, Lee Radziwill, who looked elegant perched next to André Leon Talley (who, for his part, was wearing a fur shrug/stole that we worry was made from a slaughtered Muppet).
Finally, we were thrilled to finally get Fashion Week’s first glimpse of our beloved Tim Gunn. Tim was hard to miss, as he leapt up at the end of the show to give Diane a rousing standing ovation. We can’t say for sure, of course, but we suspect getting a standing O from Tim might be the very best part of being DVF.
