What's Your Front Row Etiquette? Olivia Palermo, Kelly Osbourne & Poppy Delevigne Reveal Their Dos & Don'ts: VIDEO
GALLERY >> Stars Spill On Their FROW Rules
With so many stars gracing VIP seats at the hottest shows this month, we can't help but wonder: is there such a thing as front row etiquette? And if so, what are the rules that the pro FROW-ers stick to?
From Julia Restoin Roitfeld keeping her legs together and Tallulah Harlech avoiding structured shoulders to Olivia Palermo's ultimate FROW pas, we grilled the stars on their protocol when gracing the front rows of Fashion Week...
'I always think that obviously you shouldn’t be on your cell phone during the show – unless you're taking a picture. Emails can wait seven minutes!'
'I always think it’s good etiquette to wear the designer’s dress.'
'I'm either learning from the show or talking to people who are sitting next to me. I don't think too much about it.'
'If you’re not really feeling it, just pretend that you are. But it’s really hard not to love it.'
'I'm still learning so I spend some of the show trying to take notes from everyone else! Everyone's so prim and proper so I worry I'm getting it all wrong.'
'Remember to be ladylike and keep your legs closed. If you’re in a crowd, make sure you keep your eye on your seat and if you know you’re meant to be sitting somewhere, politely ask the person on your seat to get up. Never sit on a seat without your name on it.'
'Instagram, Instagram, Instagram! Oh my God, I was at a show yesterday and I didn’t have any wifi or 3G – I was freaking out! I’m all about sharing across social media.'
'I do everything wrong! Everything you shouldn't do, I do. I shout at the models when I know them; I'm like, "oi, Eliza!". And I'm always sitting on people's laps. Everyone else has that really serious and intense look when they're watching a show, whereas I'm just giggling with my tongue out in every photo.'
'I don’t go to very many shows, so all I know is to keep your legs together because my dress is rather short!'
'I don’t have any, I always get it wrong!'
'Never wear structured shoulders or origami skirts. If you’re trying to get your mates onto the front row, you can do the one sit forward, one sit back tactic so you can all get your bums in at the same time.'
'Usually people look better when they don’t smile, but that’s a tragic thing. But I think [the rule is] not smiling so take a note from Posh Spice.'

'Don’t chew gum and keep your legs crossed.'
'It’s my job to have my phone out and take pictures. I think it’s rude to wear sunglasses unless the designer has specifically instructed you to, as I did at the Henry Holland show.'
'There shouldn't be any rules. You should just enjoy the show for what it is and take it all in. Shows are such a sensory overload, so I like to get lost in the whole thing and let the experience sweep over me.'
