Mercedes Benz NYFW Spring 2015 fashion show season has come and gone, yet another week of posers who live with 4 roommates in studio apartments showing off their financed $850 sneakers, guys without socks air kissing other guys without socks, and self important people near fist-fighting over front row seats and gift bags.
This time I decided to re-enlist my trustworthy wing girl, former Miss NY 2011/WPIXNY Anchor Kaitlin Monte, and she was the perfect fashion week accessory.
The parties this season were a bit lack luster and the only real social scene seemed to be the ultra awesome Mercedes Benz VIP lounge at Lincoln Center in-between shows.
Some of the notables we spotted lounging were RHONYC’s Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, and ex Housewife Jill Zarin, who was there with her always friendly and chill hubby Bobby. In addition the the ‘ladies’, fitness guru John Basedow popped in to flex his muscles for the camera’s, while the former Mr. Vergara, Nick Loeb, was there enjoying single life sipping on vodka rocks chatting with the ladies.
Sonja Morgan was on the carpet flashing her pearly whites with some dude named Nicolas Brochet, the 2 were spotted later in the evening getting quite cozy. When asked about her companion on Twitter Sonja Tweeted ”We know each other a long time. French. Very sweet XO” That definitely explains the kissing!
One can only consume so many free glasses of prosecco, sparkling sake and burger sliders, so we hit the Libertine runway show with Nick and a sweet girl with him named Kat (Just Kat) before heading across the street to the Brandsway Creative Style360 party hosted by Carmen Electra at LevelR in the Empire Hotel.
Libertine rocked the house, and had the best front row gift bags which included a chocolate Buddha like goddess filled with pretzels and peanuts named The Venus of Willendorf, made by an ultra fancy chocolatier LeSucrebleu ,who also makes a chocolate Jesus, I know, sacrilegiously awesome right?
Over at the Carmen Electra party Nick Loeb (the pickle king) was quite affable, and didn’t seem at all bitter about his recent break with Modern Family star Sofia Vergara, who is now dating True Blood Werewolf Joe Manganiello who she reportedly met at a White House party while her then fiancee Nick was in the bathroom. Note to self: Don’t take your smoking hot tamale girlfriend to the White House, and if you do, don’t go to the bathroom while a studly werewolf is staring at her a**.
Unfortunately we didn’t get to meet Miss Electra, and I couldn’t get a bad word about Sofia out of Nick, in fact he was pretty pissed about a recent article that quoted him a saying he didn’t care for Sofia’s cleavage happy looks.
Nick says he never trashed Sofia in a recent US Weekly Article ” Us Weekly added Sofia on their own, saying I said Vergara’s cleavage happy looks weren’t ideal to me, I never even mentioned Sofia. US Weekly was miss-quoting the New York Post, when the Post asked me what I like woman to wear I never mentioned Sofia.
And while Joe (The New Mr. Vergara) Maganiello is building up his muscles for Magic Mike XXL (I just vomited in my mouth), Nick is working like an animal himself building up his crunchy condiment business Onion Crunch XXL.
BTW ladies, Nick is still single and ready to mingle!
