Bar Refaeli looked stunning in her flirty party dress while Ashley Tisdale took a break from shooting Hellcats and promoting it before the premiere tonight. FNO marks the official start of New York Fashion Week and Fab, Pop, Bella and the newly-redesigned Fashionologie will all be reporting from the shows, parties, and events the whole time!
Once inside, Blake took her seat next to Anna Wintour, who the actress recently gushed about in Marie Claire UK. The friends chatted throughout the giant exhibition, where tons of models strutted around the concentric circles of the huge catwalk and gave many onlookers front row seats to the action. Pharrell gave a surprise performance during the show, which included appearances by some of the world's biggest supermodels like Gisele Bundchen. Gisele sported the FNO t-shirt, which is also available in your closet and catalog on PopSugar's Retail Therapy with all proceeds going to the New York City AIDS fund!

Gwen Stefan and Gavin Rossdale were front and center in Queens, NY last night cheering on Roger Federer as he defeated Austria’s Jurgen Melzer advancing to the quarterfinals of the US Open. Gavin spent the afternoon in Manhattan with Roger before his match then caught up with Gwen and the boys for an afternoon of face painting and family time in the Big Apple. Gwen's relaxing and enjoying time with her family before she switches into full on fashion mode. On Friday she's debuting her new scent, Wicked Style, at Fashion's Night Out. Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz enjoyed date night at yesterday's big game and it turns out she'll also be involved with NYC Spring Fashion Week supporting her sister and she'll even be modeling some of the items from the Jessica Simpson Collection later today.
Alex Rodriguez watched the match from the front row while his girlfriend Cameron Diaz kept her distance. The two were spotted out celebrating her 38th birthday earlier in the week but aren't yet ready to go fully public with their relationship. A-Rod isn't the only Yankees tennis fan, as his teammate Derek Jeter took in the action on Saturday with his lady Minka Kelly.

Bradley Cooper and Bar Refaeli joined tennis pros Maria Sharapova and Rafael Nadal for a doubles match at the Nike Knockout Event in NYC yesterday. Serena Williams, who wore a brace from her recent foot surgery, and Roger Federer were also on hand for the exhibition games. Bradley showed off his skills, and while he kept his shirt on during the match, he's still one of this Summer's most memorable shirtless movie men. Bar sported a tan from her bikini-filled Italian vacation with Leonardo DiCaprio and looked like a natural with her racket. Meanwhile, Andy Roddick hit the court at a different event to help kick off next week's US Open.

Kim Kardashian gave the fans at the Sony Ericsson Tennis Tournament a fun sighting yesterday when she officiated the coin toss before a match. She met the players at center court wearing sky-high Christian Louboutins and another signature blazer before taking her seat next to Kris Jenner to watch. Newly single Kim has been spending lots of girl time with Kourtney — from bikini time on a yacht to public appearances — and with even more female Kardashians in Miami, hopefully there won't be any more tears. Kim's also been sharing lots of photos on Twitter lately but the site caused a little drama over the weekend when she got a slap on the wrist from Demi Moore over her recent choice of words.
