BIG PHAT SCENE: The Baby Phat show is always a big ticket — case in point, the enormous crowd trying to get through the doors of the Roseland Ballroom on Friday evening. Some even got creative. Since this season’s invite to the show looked like a U.S. passport, uninvited guests tried to get in by flashing their real passports to the guards. A few people got in, but were quickly turned away when they had to get their seat assignments inside. Meanwhile, inside, Mary J. Blige, Ivana Trump, Star Jones (who was chatting extensively with Star magazine editor Bonnie Fuller) and Nick Cannon were among the famous faces waiting for the show to begin.
“I don’t wear Baby Phat, but she does,” Cannon said, pointing to his fiancée, Victoria’s Secret model Selita Ebanks.
“We love Kimora,” she added,”And I may want to start my own line someday, so we are trying to get to as many shows as we can.”
MORE DEMI: Proenza Schouler may have favored the Park Avenue Armory instead of Milk Studios this season, but for many guests at the Friday night show, the new space was as tight as the old. Proenza fan Demi Moore, for one, didn’t miss a beat when asked how she liked the Armory. “If I can have a little bit more room, I might be able to take it in,” she quipped.
Kyra Sedgwick made her season debut at Proenza. “They asked me and I think their stuff is so beautiful,” she said, “Plus, one of them is a Jersey boy.” But isn’t Sedgwick a native New Yorker? “Yes, but that’s close enough.”
