The Love List
Insiders on their favorite things from the last 24 hours of Fashion Week
The Manolo Blahnik book

André Leon Talley, Contributing Editor, Vogue

My Rizzoli bookstore windows on Manolo Blahnik's new book, celebrating him, went up yesterday.

Full of jeweled beauties for the female foot. He's a master.

Diverse models instagram

Aidy Bryant, Cast Member, Saturday Night Live

I'm a Rachel Comey superfan and these models are TRUE BEAUTY.

Also, should I start a Real Housewives–style company called TRUE BEAUTY?

Beyonce in Irreplaceable

Véronique Hyland, Fashion News Editor, the Cut

My vote is for the security guard at Skylight who has to tell people to go to the left all day long, so eventually started singing "Irreplaceable.” He's my hero.

Gabriela Hearst

Simon Doonan, Creative Ambassador-at-Large, Barneys

I loved spending time with Gabriela Hearst, who launched her collection today at Barneys with a very groovy lunch.

I sat next to Mia Fonssagrives-Solow, the artist daughter of Irving Penn and Lisa Fonssagrives. MAJOR.

Marni at Gramercy Park Hotel

Shiona Turini, Fashion Contributor, the Cut

Instead of attending shows, I got to spend my first day of Fashion Week in a fitting at the Gramercy Park Hotel, my favorite hotel in NYC. This is my favorite Marni piece from the fitting.

Trademark show

Isaac Mizrahi, Designer

I love the youth and irony of Creatures of the Wind.

I also love the manic happy color and pattern mixing of BCBG. But I think Trademark got the meds balanced perfectly. A real political sweet spot.

Vivian Bond

Rachel Comey, Designer

I loved working with a group of dancers in this choreography group called Robyn’s Child.

They rehearsed during the day, and as the choreographer kept working with them, it all kept developing. And performer Justin Vivian Bond was singing this song called “Drifting.” It was all so cool.

Faux fur heels at V-Files

Lea DeLaria, Actress, Orange Is the New Black

We saw a model wipe out twice last night at V-Files.

Everyone had these faux-fur heels on, and everyone else’s were trimmed short, but hers were long and she fell. She got cheers, though. She just stood up, picked up her shoes, and kept walking.

Diverse models at Tome

Rebecca Ramsey, Senior Fashion Editor, the Cut

I loved the casting at Tome.

Women of all color and ages! It was so nice to see mature models, and I loved the high-waisted baggy trousers and ruffled details — so effortlessly styled.

Clueless makeover

Isabelle Fuhrman, Actress, The Hunger Games

I’m here on vacation with friends and I thought, why not do Fashion Week? I had clothes sent to me at the house, so my friends and I dressed up and took Polaroids of everything like something out of Clueless. We were like, “Don't trust life. Only trust Polaroids.”

It’s easy for people inside the industry to get jaded about Fashion Week, and it’s just as easy for those outside the industry to find this attitude baffling. A full week dedicated to looking at beautiful clothes? What’s not to love?

In the spirit of positivity, the Cut has been asking insiders — designers, editors, celebrities — about their favorite Fashion Week moment from the past 24 hours. Maybe it’s a runway look, maybe it’s a model, maybe it’s a funny thing that happened in the cab on the way to the show. Above, we present the first Love List: an interactive photo wall of the past day’s highlights. Hover over a photo to find out who loved each particular moment, and why.
