SJP and Anna Wintour bond over Alexander Wang

alexander wang AW 09

Sarah Jessica Parker famously claims she's a million miles removed from her famous character Carrie Bradshaw and doesn't ‘do fashion', so how surprised were we to see the actress pop up on the first weekend of New York Fashion Week? Well it was to see Alexander Wang, aka NY's hottest boy of the moment (get the low-down with Wang in tomorrow's Grazia btw). And she did get to sit next to Anna Wintour - even sharing a smile and joke with the notoriously icy editor. Mind you it would be hard not to love the Alexander Wang A/W '09 show. The CDFA/Vogue Fashion Fund winner has grown up his models-off-duty aesthetic so it's sophisticated but even edgier and sexier. Here were our highlights...

1. A Margiela-clad Sarah Jessica Parker front row flanked by Anna Wintour and Diane Von Furstenburg ...... mobbed by the press.

2. Hip-Hop / Rock Concert atmosphere at the legendary Roseland Ballroom rock venue in midtown - much bigger venue than last season. Wang is slowly becoming one of the hottest tickets on the schedule.

3. Barneys' Simon Doonan spotted in a man-fur! America's Top Model's Miss J was wearing some earlier too! Hmmm....

4. Wang made what looked like gorilla fur look sexy. Genius.

5. Amazing black Swarovski crystal-encrusted snoods 'a la Grace Jones'. Late 80's gothic hip-hop glamour!

Check out the key looks below...
