Elsa Sylvan Is Friday’s Top ModelThough our number one girl to watch, Ali Stephens, has just been confirmed as a Calvin exclusive, there was still plenty of eye candy on day one. Hilary Rhoda strutted the catwalk at Rag & Bone as Gisele Bündchen watched from the front row. Tanya Dziahileva filled in for an MIA Sasha Pivovarova to open the show. But yesterday’s winner was Elsa Sylvan, who came off a smoking-hot couture week (where she walked Vava, Chanel, Givenchy, and Lacroix), to open Yigal with a bang.

Nicole Miller Makes Sure We Get Our AlcoholFew designers like to admit that a lot goes awry before a show, but after her show this evening, Nicole Miller didn’t think twice about confessing the earlier snags: One model dropped out today, three models arrived late, panty hose wasn’t died dark enough, one parka didn’t arrive until late yesterday afternoon, and she only had four weeks to create the whole collection. No stress there or anything.
