One can always count on Carolina Herrera to make gorgeous, ladylike clothes in luxurious fabrics, and Fall 2102 was no exception. Using a palette that included deep navy, purple, black, light blue and red, in splashes and on entire dresses, the collection was a feast for the eyes.

Renee Zellweger, Lee Radziwill, Anna and Graydon Carter, Amy Fine Collins, Fran Lebowitz and Pat Wexler were all front row in Reinaldo Herrera's section, where friends of the house congregate yearly to admire the elegant designs and double kiss.

It is fitting for me that Nicole Miller's show was my first for Fashion Week. I'm a big fan of Nicole the designer as well as Nicole the person, and her collections never disappoint.

She had lots of star power in attendance, including Karen Duffy, Beverly Johnson, Donna Hanover and Laurie Durning Waters, plus close friends Richard and Marcia Mishaan, Tracy Snyder, Valesca Guerrand-Hermes and her son, Palmer Taipale.

The Associates Committee of the Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center is a stellar group of women committed to excellence in everything they do; in this case, in helping to eradicate a terrible disease that has touched everyone's life in one way or another.

The MSKCC 4th Annual Associates Lunch was held at Rouge Tomate. Ferragamo sponsored the event, which showcased pieces from the gorgeous Spring/Summer 2012 collection, featuring dresses with rich patterns in mixtures of turquoise and purple, orange and pink, as well as brightly colored bags and shoes.

Event chairs Nina Garcia, Getchen Gunlocke Fenton, and Eugenie Niven Goodman wore Ferragamo, and chair Emili Fanjul Pfeifler wore Celine and carried a Ferragamo handbag.

"Sloan Kettering is fighting so hard for a disease that affects us all," said Garcia. "They are deeply committed to their research, and deeply committed to helping out."

Fanjul Pfeifler echoed that sentiment:

"I had a grandmother who died of cancer, she was very involved in Sloan Kettering and the involvement has moved to the next generation. That's me now."

Greg Kinnear, Lea Thompson Billy Crudup

"This movie makes me want to go back to Miami," whispered Florida native Sarah Arison at the Cinema Society screening of Thin Ice. The weather—snow, ice, cold—was relentless in this clever tale of a sleazy, small-time insurance salesman who tries to con an old man out of the money for a violin his late sister left him.

"There's a point where you can get so cold making a film that it induces laughter," Greg Kinnear, in Calvin Klein, told FashionEtc. "Beyond what the coldest is you can ever imagine, where you're just saying 'shit it's cold,' there's another layer and it drops way down and it comes bubbling up and it becomes laughter. As Billy Crudup, Alan Arkin and I were filming on a frozen lake, at some point that became the funniest moment. Doesn't sound so now, but at the time, hysterical."

Kinnear's character, the insurance salesman, is trying to get back together with his estranged wife, played by Lea Thompson, who had a hard time shopping for the evening.

"This dress is H&M. I bought it today because I didn't have anything to wear. I swear to God I looked for three hours to find something to wear underneath this Tahari coat," said Thompson with a laugh. "I have a hard time getting dressed because sometimes I'm in character. Right now I'm on this show called Switched At Birth. My character has this ordered life that she thought was perfect, but then she finds out she raised somebody else's kid. In that show I wear put-together, Kansas City upper crust girl clothes, but in reality I'm more artsy and cool, so I get confused when I shop."
