SheKnows was almost front and center during Minkoff’s Friday show, thanks to New York Fashion Week sponsor Fiber One, and we were in prime position to get the reactions of the celebs in the front row, including Olivia Palermo, Kristin Chenoweth and newlyweds Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald.

The general consensus of the packed house? Awe. Brooklyn rapper Theophilus London started out ?the show with his song, “I Stand Alone.”

“The clothes don’t make the man, the man makes the clothes,” he sang as the models sashayed down the runway. However, it was the clothes that made the models sparkle… literally.

Minkoff’s inspiration for her fall/winter 2012 fashion collection was the protagonist in Ewan McGregor’s 2004 documentary Long Way Round. This girl is fearless — as are the clashing prints and colors in Minkoff’s designs.

Minkoff is pretty fearless, too.

“The best part about NYFW is seeing all of my vision and my team and the hard work come to fruition on the runway. It’s a beautiful moment and I couldn’t feel any prouder when the lights go up and the show starts,” she told of her inspiration.
