"No jewelry, simple hair... [He wanted it to look like] 'I just rolled out of bed and don't I look beautiful'?" Seventeen editor-in-chief Ann Shoket commented to Poison Ivy.

Supporting Azria in the audience were Ashlee Simpson, Katrina Bowden, Kelly Rowland, Alison Brie, Elle and Blair Fowler (who were guest-editing for and Coco Rocha, who told Poison Ivy she was off to present at the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday and was sad she'd be missing one two her favorite shows: Michael Kors and Zac Posen.

Paramore Storm Orlando with Southern Hospitality

"I never thought we'd play a place this big," says Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams.

She's talking to the 10,000 people who sold out the UCF Arena in Orlando, Fla. Sunday night, as part of the Honda Civic Tour, also featuring the fantastic Tegan and Sara, Williams' boyfriend's band New Found Glory, and Kadawatha.

"We played The Social, Backbooth, and House of Blues many many times," Williams told the crowd, citing the smaller Orlando venues where Paramore paid their dues.

Williams also went as far to call the city the band's "second home" after hometown Franklin, Tennessee, noting that the band recorded their first album, All We Know is Falling, at Orlando's Plush Studios (formerly The Fort Studios).

To stay true to their roots, however, Paramore mixed classic riotous tunes ("Decode," "That's What You Get," "The Only Exception," "For a Pessimist, I'm Pretty Optimistic," "Feeling Sorry") with a Nashville classic: Loretta Lynn's "You Ain't Woman Enough (To Take My Man)."

Check out a snippet of their acoustic cover, above.
