    Marc Jacobs: Totally Worth the WaitWaiting to get into the Marc Jacobs show at the Armory tonight was like lining up for the new Star Wars, except with fashionistas instead of geeks. But the wait — and the attendant fear that we were all about to be killed in the unholy, disorganized crush of humanity — was worth it, because this was the premiere celeb spotting event of our lives.

    Bold-Name Desperation Outside the French Vogue PartyHow exclusive was French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld’s Saturday-night party for the young swans of fashion, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, Bee Shaffer, and Margherita Missoni? Too exclusive for us. But the scene outside the velvet ropes at the Gramercy Park Hotel might have been as entertaining as the one inside.

    Volume: The Golden TicketDesigners clearly had Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory on demand this season: Oompa-Loompa-inspired dresses — loads of volume at the hip and nipped in at the legs — are prevalent on the runway.

    Stars Skip Sunbonnets, Ruffled Diapers If there’s one thing we’ve learned in our two days of roaming Bryant Park, it’s that there is no such thing as “Hurry up, the show starts in 30 seconds.” Our evening began with a 6 p.m. Karen Walker show, her first-ever U.S. presentation. Now, when neither of you is a local and one of you was born without a sense of direction, it’s best if the other is not terribly trusting. Sadly, that’s not the case.

    Waistlines: Going Up Your panties may be pretty, but next season they’re going undercover. Designers are hiking waistlines practically up to the neck. Rachel Roy offered belted ivory silk skirts while Verrier’s ruffled number stopped just short of the ribs. United Bamboo’s sailor-buttoned black skirt aims high but has a loose fit, so you can breathe even though you’re covered up.

    Baby Phight!It was a harried day for 50 Cent. He spent the afternoon in the Midtown South precinct house after being pulled over for a traffic violation. He got out in time for the Baby Phat show, only to wait around an hour for it to actually begin. And then he got in a fight with another show-goer.
