Friday Photo: Fashion Week Makes for Strange Bedfellows

Or at least highly unlikely seatmates. Who knew comedian, author, and erstwhile host of It’s Showtime at the Apollo Steve Harvey had such a sharp eye for design? We spotted him and his wife sitting beside Harper’s Bazaar editor-in-chief Glenda Bailey in the front row of Saturday’s jaw-droppingly stunning Chado Ralph Rucci show (but more about that later). Other unexpected Fashion Week appearances included Mickey Rourke at Tuesday’s Max Azria show and Michael Douglas, who inspected the ultra-feminine looks at Oscar de la Renta. Our personal favorite kept a lower profile. It was only on our way out of Sunday evening’s Tuleh show that we noticed Wallace Shawn among the crowd. The beatific actor and writer had a front-row seat for a collection that designer Bryan Bradley described as inspired by the idea of “fashion as a short-story collection.”
