A star-studded crowd checked out the alice + olivia by Stacey Bendet’s presentation of its Fall 2011 collection at The Plaza earlier this week. Guests included Brittany Snow and Vanessa Hudgens (above), Tinsley Mortimer, Johnny Weir and Erin Andrews. During the two-hour
fete, “Gossip Girl’s” Kelly Rutherford gave expecting designer Bendet a kiss on her belly as celebs munched on heart-shaped goodies.

Nightlife guru and industry insider Mr. Patrick Duffy has been the host of the (verrrry popular) Kim Crawford wine bar throughout the week, where tons of celeb guests swung by for glasses of pinot noir or sauvignon blanc, including Pat Cleveland, (the first African American supermodel to grace the cover of Vogue) Fern Mallis, Ann CurryRichie Rich, Rebecca Minkoff , Taraji P. Henson, George Whipple and Louise Roe — to name a few.

At Tracy Reese‘s fashion show afterparty, the designer boogied on the dance floor to Michael Jackson hits spun by DJ Tracy Young, ex-flame of Atlanta “Real Housewife” Kim Zolciak.

Also seen at Fashion Week: Gabrielle Union and Isaac Mizrahi  at the Derek Fabulous It Gets Better Fashion Lounge.
