DRAMA QUEENS: A trio of “Real Housewives of New York” descended on GMHC’s annual Fashion Forward runway show and fund-raiser on Monday evening at Metropolitan Pavilion, including fabrics maven Jill Zarin, Countess LuAnn de Lesseps and model-turned-jewelry designer Kelly Bensimon. A Bravo camera crew followed the loquacious ladies, filming the fourth season of the hit reality show. “This season it’s all about authentic friendships,” said Bensimon, without a hint of irony. “I’m not walking into scenes and pretending there’s big drama. We have real-life problems.”
On hand to witness any potential issues unfold — as well as help raise $250,000 for GMHC’s HIV/AIDS prevention programs — were Lydia Hearst, Wendy Williams, Deborah Cox, Jeffrey Costello and Robert Taglapietra and the CFDA’s Steven Kolb. The evening was emceed by “Project Runway’s” Tim Gunn, with a runway show featuring looks from Diane von Furstenberg, Anna Sui, Narciso Rodriguez, Richard Chai, Yigal Azrouël and Simon Spurr.
