LA Fashion Weak

Los Angeles Fashion Week kicked off this weekend and not even the D-list showed up.

While big name fashionistas like Natalie Portman, Nicole Kidman and Scarlett Johansson routinely turn up to fashion week in NY, Paris and Milan, the "celebrities" at Sunday's Spring 2007 shows looked more like a "Surreal Life" casting call.

Able only to attract attendees like Jason Davis, Greasy Bear's plus size brother, Paris Hilton's BFF Caroline D'Amore, and K-Fed's ex Shar Jackson, not counting Oscar night, LA has a long way to go before it's considered a true fashion capitol.

And while top notch designers like Gucci, Versace and Dolce & Gabbana do not show in LA (LA usually spotlights new up and coming talent), something must really be wrong if even consummate party girls like Tara Reid, Lindsay and Paris don't bother to show up.

Looks like the powers that be should consider moving Fashion Week to Hyde.
