oof.



Watched a little too much coverage of the royal wedding, did we?

fashion focus: roger (with a g) at de la renta



Roger with a ‘G’* was clearly the talk of 583 Park Avenue, a decommissioned Georgian church which was the site of Oscar de la Renta‘s Spring 2008 show.

But as soon as The Polyphonic Spree started playing and the models made their way down the catwalk, the audience turned their attention away from the tennis star and towards the beautiful collection from Mr. de la Renta. Both the day wear and evening gowns were awesome.

Look-see: The whole collection, via style.com.

Roll call: Other sightings include Roger’s girlfriend, Mirka Vavrinec; Amanda Peet; and the bobbleheads of Anna Wintour and Victoria Beckham.

sightings from the stands: r-fed d. roddick



Two things: first, I want World News Now‘s Ryan Owens to whisper frivolous news stories in my ear (perhaps it’s just my insomnia talking?) Second, I miss Matt Savoie. Now onto the fun stuff…

I was following the tight three sets Roger Federer played against Roddick at last night’s U.S. Open quartefinals. Up until the third set, Roger, who won the first two sets in tiebreaks, was the only one who faced a break point. Unfortunately for the Texan, Federer ran away with the third set, breaking Andy twice to win 6-2.

The black-shirt affair brought out the big-hitters:

wintour and de la Renta - roger federer

What R-Fed tennis U.S. Open tennis match would be complete without the president of his fan club, Anna Wintour? To her left is the fabulously tortoise-shelled Oscar de la Renta.

Apparently, this fashion week’s most sought-after photo opp is Roger and Anna in the tents of Bryant Park (or wherever designers are showing). The papparazi are ready!

for federer, fashion elite at the front row



Last night’s second-round match between Roger Federer and Paul “MC” Capdeville brought out the big hitters: Oscar de la Renta, Ralph Lauren, and busy bee Vogue EIC Anna Wintour.

Of course, Roger’s devoted girlfriend, Mirka Vavrinec, was on hand to entertain the guests.
