Front Row at Rodarte

Kanye West, Sofia Coppola, Kirsten Dunst and Maggie Cheung were all front and center at the show.

RUNWAY RUNAWAY: Sofia Coppola, Kirsten Dunst and Maggie Cheung were all front and center for Rodarte's show early Tuesday afternoon in Chelsea. Shortly after Dunst and Coppola found their seats, a dozen photographers descended on the pair.

 

"We’re a little too early," a smiling Dunst observed to her seatmate.

 

A chair marked “Kanye West” sat empty a few chairs away, seeming to indicate that Dunst and West would both be in the house as they were at Band of Outsiders' Saturday show.

 

“Kanye? I do love Kanye,” she said.

 

Any favorites off his new record?

 

“I like that douchebag song,” she said as she broke into a laugh. “Yeah, why not?”

 

A few seats down, Karen Elson, who had taken in the Marc Jacobs show and after party the night before, felt a bit under the weather.

 

"I lost my voice," she explained. “I was home by midnight. I don’t know. I’ve been sick, so it’s just a final hurrah.”

 

When West did show up, shortly before the show began, Elson made a hoarse-throated introduction.

 

“Karen,” she said. “Nice to meet you.”

 

The rapper has been on interview lockdown all week, so a new approach seemed in order. Would he answer a specifically fashion-related question?

 

“I’m not answering questions any more, sorry,” West said.

 

Not even who he was wearing?

 

He paused to consider the proposal.

 

“Nah,” he said with a smile. “Thanks a lot.”
