Is This The Most Testosterone-Filled Fashion Week Ever, Or What?

by Chiara Atik · September 13, 2010

Obviously, it would be close-minded to say that only women (and gay men) would be interested in Fashion Week. Still, we're pretty sure this year is especially laden with testosterone. Seriously guys, when did Fashion Week get so manly? Let's take a look at the evidence.-

Exhibit A:

This is a picture of Russell Simmons. On the manly side, he is wearing loose jeans and a Yankees cap to a Fashion Show. On the other hand, his legs are crossed, and he seems to be taking an iPhone picture of the Z Spoke collection, which we hasten to add was his second fashion show of the day, the first being Charlotte Ronson, where he even went backstage to meet the designer after the show.

See that fellow sitting next him? That's Brett Ratner. Yeah, that's right, the guy who directed movies such as Rush Hour and X-Men. Sitting front row at Zac Posen. What is going on?

Exhibit B

Oh, hi, Anna Wintour. Where's Bee? She couldn't make it, huh? Well, we completely understand why you brought New York Knick Amare Stoudemire as your backup. I mean, he was probably going anyway, so it just worked out.

Exhibit C

Oh, you know, just some dudes, getting rowdy at an Iggy Pop concert. That is taking place as part of Fashion Week to celebrate a magazine with Britney Spears on the cover. Just saying.

Exhibit D

Oh hey, The Strokes. You guys look ready for a concert. Where are you playing, Terminal 5? Music Hall Of Williamsburg?

...Uptown?

...a Fashion Show?

....Huh.

Exhibit E

If Jeremy Piven comes down with another case of Mercury Poisoning in the next few days, it's probably just a case of Fashion Week overload. The actor has been everywhere this week, starting with the Lacoste L!ve Launch party at Rose Bar last Wednesday, the Don Hill's reopening party last Thursday, the Varvatos party on Saturday night, and the Tommy Hilfiger party last night.

Just like Jared Leto before him, it seems like Jeremy Piven is now having the best fashion week ever.
