Backstage Pass: Cynthia Rowley at New York Fashion Week


Our generous friends at Cynthia Rowley invited Poison Ivy to hang backstage before Rowley's Saturday New York Fashion Week show to check out the behind-the-scenes process!

We chatted with the models (dolled up in tight buns and hole-punched skirts), caught up with Alan Cumming, Rebecca Romijn and Sara Gore, and then trekked it to The Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt Museum for a luncheon in honor of Rowley's own BAND-AID!
 
Check out our morning, soundtracked to Brandon Flowers "Crossfire," above.

Video: Kingston Surprises Gwen Stefani Onstage During L.A.M.B. Show


Gwen Stefani got a special surprise from son Kingston James following her Spring 2011 L.A.M.B. runway show Thursday night!

Stefani's show - the last of the week - recruited many celebrity guests (Russell Simmons, Blondie singer Debbie Harry, Omarion, Jimmy Iovine, Mel B, No Doubt's Tom Dumont and Tony Kanal, and Stefani's husband Gavin Rossdale), but no one made quite as strong as an impression as Stefani's son, who surprised Gwen by waltzing onto the runway during her finale walk!

Check out the magic moment, above (at the 1:32 mark).

Video: Betsey Johnson Collapses (on Purpose) after New York Fashion Week Show


There are few things more exhilarating than a Betsey Johnson New York Fashion Week show!

The magic really begins backstage, where the dressing quarters are decked out in rainbow balloons, rose petals, and everyone (even models!) are nibbling on Twizzlers and M&M's.

Carmen Electra, Ciara, Kristin Cavallari and Kelly Osbourne were just a few who stopped by the party Monday, which featured gorgeous, vibrant designs and culminated in Johnson cartwheeling down the runway and collapsing!

Of course we brought back video!!

Check out BJ's shitshow, above.

Solange Knowles, Carmen Electra Sizzle at Zac Posen


Solange Knowles, Carmen Electra, Kimora Lee Simmons, Estelle, Michelle Trachtenberg, Shenae Grimes and James King were just a handful of gorgeous faces we saw at the Z Spoke by Zac Posen show Saturday night!

Vibrant reds, big-buttoned jackets and belted dresses seemed to be the general Z Spoke theme, with many backstage fashionistas (Miss J. Alexander, Jay Manuel) taking note.

"I don't know how people grow that tall," Rocco Dispirito commented to Poison Ivy after the show.

LOL!

Monday was our first time at a Monique Lhuillier show... and we were beyond pleasantly surprised!!

Along with mingling with tons of A-listers (Giada DeLaurentiis, Alexis Bledel, Emma Roberts, Brad Goreski, Perrey Reeves), we got a fabulous compliment on our outfit by Ms. Olivia Palermo, who offered to open the above video with an intro!

Lhuillier used color, color and more color in her collection, which we later gabbed with Goreski about.

"She used to use a lot of dark," he commented.

"I love that she used so much color... As I run around in a fuchsia jacket!"

Poison Ivy's fascination with Americana legend Tommy Hilfiger began back in March, when we broke the story about why in the world Hilfiger decided to punch Axl Rose in 2006.

Sunday night, the love affair only grew stronger when we attended a riveting 25th anniversary runway show and epic after-party at Lincoln Center's Metropolitan Opera House!

We even got to see a performance by one of our favorite bands: The Strokes!
