What: an inside look at one of the hottest show during fashion week. Live-blogging begins!
3:50 p.m.: Time to check in with the Gods/Goddesses of KCD PR. Time is of essence.
4:05 p.m.: Double air-kisses are the norm this season. Wow just spotted Valentino Giancarlo - in person!! Also, Oscar de la Renta is in the front-row. DVF being the CFDA President certainly has clout. There's no better peer support than to show up to another designer's own fashion show.
4:08 p.m.: Interactive Corp's chairman Barry Diller (aka DVF's husband) now greeting guests. Bill Cunningham from the New York Times is also here. This is growing to be quite a re-union of sorts.
4:10 p.m.: Hamish Bowles, Suzy Menkes now taking turns to talk to Mr. Valentino Giancarlo, Mr. de la Renta.
4:17 p.m.: Just had my first Anna Dello Russo sighting.
4:24 p.m.: Bill Cunningham snapping pictures at front-rowers. It's amazing to see him working at this age, still so passionate about the job he does.
4:27 p.m.: Susan Sarandon, good friend of DVF, now sits in between Mr. de la Renta and Mr. Diller.
4:28 p.m.: Anna Wintour, looking every bit lovely in her big sunglasses, is chatting up with Stefano Tonchi.
4:29 p.m.: Show Starts!
