Front Row at Jill Stuart: Mena Suvari in the Spotlight

Mena Suvari fended off a torrent of flashbulbs as she tried to make her way to her seat at Jill Stuart.

Wearing a one-shoulder sequin dress with sparkly silver platform shoes, Mena Suvari fended off a torrent of flashbulbs as she tried to make her way to her seat at Monday’s Jill Stuart show at the New York Public Library. Suvari, who just finished filming “Two Wolves,” a horror flick directed by Alex Wright, said she’s looking forward to a little time off. There’s no rest in sight for Michelle Trachtenberg of “Gossip Girl.” She’s also been filming “Mercy,” the NBC series about a hospital set in Jersey City. “We’ve been filming at the Jersey shore,” she said. “An episode deals with a lot of Guidos and Guidettes.” As for fashion, Trachtenberg said “unless you’re Gwen Stefani, who can do no wrong, clothing can come out looking kind of cheesy.” “Gossip Girl” pal Jessica Szohr, who attended Diane von Furstenberg’s show on Sunday, would agree. “I started modeling when I was 15,” said the actress, who will be seen in the upcoming “Something Wicked,” starring the late Brittany Murphy. “I try to keep up with [fashion]. I love the classics. I love Rodarte, Chanel and Calvin Klein. My style is still sporadic.”
