Fashion Scoops: Twin Sets... Peanuts Gallery... More Demi...

Sitting pretty in a black Michael Kors shift dress, Maria Sharapova graced the designer's front row on Sunday afternoon. "I wanted to support him because he has always supported me in tennis," she said after setting off a blast of flashbulbs, as did...

ROCK ON: Ports 1961 is a Canadian brand, so it only made sense that it would import a fellow Canadian for its front row at Friday's show. Bryan Adams had his own thoughts on the entire show circus. "The shows are just too short for the production," Adams said. "You have to remember I am a musician. Here, it's this kind of a production and then it only takes five minutes? Give me a microphone and I will sing anytime."

BIG PHAT SCENE: The Baby Phat show is always a scene — case in point, the enormous crowd trying to get through the doors of the Roseland Ballroom on Friday evening. Some even got creative. Since this season's invite to the show looked like a U.S. passport, uninvited guests tried to get in by flashing their real passports to the guards. A few people got in, but were quickly turned away when they had to get their seat assignments inside. Meanwhile, inside, Mary J. Blige, Ivana Trump, Star Jones (who was chatting extensively with Star magazine editor Bonnie Fuller) and Nick Cannon were among the famous faces waiting for the show to begin.

"I don't wear Baby Phat, but she does," Cannon said pointing to his fiancée, Victoria's Secret model Selita Ebanks.

"We love Kimora [Lee Simmons]," Ebanks added. "And I may want to start my own line someday, so we are trying to get to as many shows as we can."

NO SHOW: Behnaz Sarafpour didn't take a bow at the end of her show on Friday, but it wasn't because she had a sudden bout of stage fright — Sarafpour had to miss her own show. On her way to venue in the morning, she started feeling ill, so her husband, Evan Shumeyko, called for an ambulance to take the designer to Beth Israel Medical Center. There, she was diagnosed with having a kidney stone and discharged later in the evening. "I saw my show on this morning," said Sarafpour, who was resting at home for the weekend, on Saturday. "I think my team did an amazing job in my absence. I'm very proud of them."
