New York Fashion Week 2012 is finally underway at Manhattan's Lincoln Center. Celebrities came out to celebrate the first day of fashion fetes featuring designers like BCBG Max Azria, Richard Chai, Honor and Tadashi Shoji.

Angela Simmons, the beautiful daughter of Rev Run, sat front row at both BCBG Max Azria and Tadashi Shoji. Simmons opted for a snow white blazer with a black skin-tight dress underneath. She wore a large tribal necklace to make the monochromatic outfit pop. Red lipstick complemented a clean face with ultra-lush lashes.

Alongside Simmons at the Tadashi Shoji show was actress Aisha Tyler. Tyler was dressed in a white lace sheath dress with a slicked back bun. She laughed and chatted with the press prior to the show and then watched with glued attention as Shoji's collection glided down the runway.

Jessica White showed up to the front row as well. The beauty opted for a broad-rimmed hat, an emerald green maxi skirt and a tiger-print top. The stunner posed for several minutes for photographers.

Ms. Jay, a former judge on America's Next Top Model, also made an appearance. Dressed in a black jacket and black skull cap, he chatted animatedly with the press before and after the show. He was a shutterbug magnet with hoards of photogs flocking to him.

Food Network star Giada De Laurentiis also sat in the front row. The Everyday Italian host attended the BCBG Max Azria show. She was all smiles as she watched the array of colorblocked dresses and fur vests patter down the runway. She was dressed in navy blue.

The front row will surely heat up the rest of the week as designers Michael Kors, Vera Wang, Jill Stuart, Rebecca Minkoff and Betsey Johnson show their Fall 2012 collections.
