Gemma Film Doesn’t Suck; Mactress Curse Lifted?

The following information may be hard to swallow — especially if you paid to see Fair Game in theaters — but one of our favorite catwalkers may have made a successful transition into the dicey model-slash-actress category. Gemma Ward appears in the upcoming film Black Balloon, which won Berlin Film Festival's Crystal Bear prize, a best-feature honor awarded by young panelists.

OMG, Someone New: Perrey Reeves at Monique Lhullier

>Monique Lhuillier's show is traditionally jam-packed with pretty young things in the market for pretty new things to wear, and Tuesday's show was true to form. In addition to reliable old Sophia Bush, who seems to be losing her voice after her week of nonstop yapping, we spotted Entourage's Perrey Reeves — a new face, thank goodness!

Rodarte: Light and Dreamy and Unattainable

In our mass-marketed and manufactured era, Laura and Kate Mulleavy, the designers of Rodarte, know the value of a little handworked originality. Their crafty collections bring a bit of the personal into an industry increasingly defined by the mass production of pricey key fobs, four-figure handbags, and heavy bottles of perfume.

Critics Herald DVF, Send a Chill to DKNY

Big Names are showing daily, and the critics are quick to praise or pick apart. Diane Von Furstenberg's femme-fatale look was lauded, but Max Azria’s resurrection of the Hervé Léger label was mixed. Jonathan Saunders charmed most reviewers, but not Cathy Horyn. And Donna Karan’s time-traveling collection was confusing to all but WWD.

These Ladies Fugging Love Cool James

For the second season in a row, John Varvatos debuted his new collection at the very top of 7 World Trade Center, which boasts a spectacular view of Manhattan and a moving perspective on ground zero. Many of the guests were unable to keep up the usual routine of schmoozing with their fellow fashionistas, instead wandering over to the floor-to-ceiling windows to take a look.

5 Things We Liked on Monday

1.Oscar de la Renta knows his customer. Today's show was local (held on the Upper East Side) and age appropriate. Loved the cream, sleeveless top with a navy pencil skirt and feathered hat. Very Chic. 2.The punk rock hair at Anna Sui was a hit, as was a purple cardigan worn over pewter ruffled shorts that looked like a skirt.

Roopal Patel of Bergdorf Goodman Likes Reyes, Sari Gueron, and DVF

Bergdorf's likes
Throughout the week, buyers from Bergdorf Goodman, Bird, Intermix, and Jeffrey New York will tell us which runway looks they plan to snatch up for fall. These are the first picks from Roopal Patel, women’s fashion director at Bergdorf Goodman. Reyes's bold colors, Sari Gueron’s sheath dresses, and DVF’s patterns all appeal to her so far this week.

Max Azria Designs Maternity Chic

Rowland/Legend
We finally found the celebrities. Or at least knew where some of them were for twenty minutes yesterday at BCBG Max Azria. While prowling the front row pre-show in an attempt to see which starlet would be feeling our wrath this evening, we noticed that Katharine McPhee was scheduled to appear. The American Idol runner-up didn't make it, possibly because it was too stressful to make the trip from TRL — where she made an appearance this afternoon wearing casual jeans and some top that we don't remember — to the tents, where, we assume, she'd have to wear something a bit higher-flying, possibly necessitating a change in the Town Car. That sounds like a lot of work.
