DVF’s show notes described her spring collection as “a mix of quietcalm and joie de vivre.” Certainly she wasn’t talking about thenightmare getting into the travesty that the Lincoln Center venue hasbecome. Luckily, von Furstenberg’s show itself fared better withterrific music (Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” and Daft Punk’s “GetLucky”), a celebrity-heavy front row with Andy Cohen and JaniceDickinson shimmying to the tunes, and the most star-studded model lineupso far this season, including Jourdan Dunn, Joan Smalls, Karlie Kloss,Karen Elson and Naomi Campbell, who closed the show.
