Fashion Scoops: Tommy's Photo Op... Back Talk... Downtime, Downtown...

Tommy Hilfiger wraps up New York Fashion Week today and there should be lots of familiar faces in his front row — the celebrity kind, that is.

Ditto for her new-found country music neighbor. But Rimes said she bailed on the latter when she heard his show was running two hours late. Rimes, whose "Family" album debuts next month, said what she most dislikes about fashion week is "all the craziness — it's always so chaotic."

CHILD'S PLAY: Nicky Hilton's Bryant Park debut left her blinded by tears — so much so the newbie could not make out her parents Kathy and Rick, according to her mother. The couple said they never imagined when their daughters were children that they would impact American culture. "Not even at 23," Rick said, referring to Nicky age.

"Never did I think one of my daughters would be showing in Bryant Park," Kathy Hilton added.

HAVE A COOKIE: As if in response to Molly Sims' quip in the New York Post about Alice + Olivia being a low-budget brand that couldn't afford well-fed models, the Alice + Olivia in Wonderland-themed tea party slash spring collection presentation offered giant cookies and cupcakes that read "Eat Me." Co-owner and designer Stacey Bendet, dressed in a long ivory halter dress ("as Olivia," if she had to pick a character in the modified fairy tale), dismissed the comments as "silly" and pointed to buyers from Neiman Marcus to dismiss the notion that her clothes were less than high-brow.

WEST HEADS EAST: Kanye West's new album "Graduation" may have just dropped on Tuesday, but he had other things on his mind. Fresh off his appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, West flew directly from Las Vegas to New York to take in the Ghita show on Tuesday morning. Designed by his fiancée, Alexis Phifer, West said he wouldn't miss the show. "I really wanted to see it, and not just because it's Alexis' line," he said. "I truly believe it will be the best show of the week." West, who also has his own clothing line, said he thinks about showing during fashion week. "I want to get production right before I think about my show, but I do see it happening one day," he said. "Alexis has been in business for five seasons and this is her first show, so I know it takes a lot of time and dedication to get to this point."
