FASHION WEEK KICKS OFF

LIPSTICK JUNGLE AT THE TENT

Not only is February 1st National Wear Red Day, but today also marks the official Mercedes-Benz Fall 2008 Fashion Week in New York City.

And what better way to kick off the week with the new female powerhouses of Lipstick Jungle, Brooke Shields, Kim Raver and Lindsay Price at this morning's ribbon cutting at The Tent in Bryant Park. Not even a cold, rainy day in February could keep these ladies away from one of the biggest occasions in the industry. Besides, next week the trio is starring in another series by Sex and the City author Candace Bushnell about Manhattanite fashionistas. But this time Bushnell's characters won't merely focus on shoes, sex and writing. This time around the chicas are also savvy and sultry business women. *mercedes sanchez
