Nicole Richie, Rachel Zoe, and Kate Upton Kick Off Fashion Week

Sep 4 2013 - 8:29pm

Rachel Zoe [1] made her first red carpet appearance since announcing her pregnancy at the Style Awards at Lincoln Center in NYC Wednesday evening. The stylist and designer stepped out in a black Valentino dress that accentuated her growing baby bump. Rachel confirmed that she is expecting baby number two [2] earlier this week, saying that she and husband Rodger Berman are "beyond excited" and "feel incredibly blessed." Rachel's longtime fashion friend Nicole Richie [3] also hit the red carpet in a black ensemble, though she opted for a studded Antonio Berardi crop top and slim pants. Nicole is fittingly hosting the ceremony, which serves as the kickoff for New York Fashion Week.

Another notable fashion fixture to pop up at the event is model of the moment Kate Upton, who sported a slightly darker 'do and chatted with fellow bombshell Christie Brinkley while posing for photos. Kate is being recognized as model of the year during the ceremony and will join other honorees like Zac Posen, Mad Men costume designer Janie Bryant, and NFL player Victor Cruz. Kate's Style Award win is just one big milestone for the star this month, as she also graces the cover of Vanity Fair's 100th anniversary issue [4].
