INSIDE FASHION WEEK: Here’s What You Missed At The Tents This Weekend

Fashion Week

[credit provider=”Meredith Galante/Business Insider”]

We spent Saturday at  Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2012, which takes place under the tents at Lincoln centre.Security was tight with the 9/11 anniversary Sunday.

Fashionistas and media members had to flash their invitations on their smartphones in order to enter the main tent. 

Mercedes-Benz showed off some of their most luxurious vehicles, TRESemme hairdressers styled ladies’ hair and Maybelline handed out some of the hottest pink lipstick we’ve ever seen.

Noticeably missing were the Starbucks and the Kim Crawford wine booths, but of which were major hits at the February shows. A lot of disappointment there.

Inside, we spotted Kelly Rutherford from Gossip Girl at Son Jung Wan and Beverly Mitchell, formerly of Seventh Heaven, at Vivienne Tam.

At the end of the Son Jung Wan show, the designer gave a big hug to Rutherford, celebrating her moment.

And at the Vivienne Tam show, Mitchell was flocked by reporters asking her questions about the day.

Fashion Week continues through Sept. 15.
