One of the sweetest people I met during New York Fashion Week wasn't an editor or photographer, it was Lindsay Price of Lipstick Jungle (and the original 90210!). We sat down and talked shoes, the second season of the hit show, and what fashion really means — girl had some keen insight into clothes! The second season of the fashion-filled show premieres Sept. 24, and I can't wait to see Lindsay in action.
And let me just say: the famous New York Saks shoe department is the ideal place for two girls to meet and chat. We were there to celebrate the designer shoe collaboration in honor of The Wizard of Oz. Rubified slippers by designers like Jimmy Choo, Betsey Johnson, and Moschino were sprinkled around the party and on display all week at the Bryant Park tents. Here's what Lindsay had to say . . .
Welcome to the Saks shoe department! What a great place to meet you in.
Yeah! We actually had our premiere party here, and that was amazing. We shot here too, right along this wall of glass bubbles.
So I see you are wearing Yves Saint Laurent Tribute sandals. I have to ask: Are they comfortable?
They are surprisingly comfortable I have to say. I've been wearing them about an hour, so we'll see.

What shoes caught your eye here?
I would go straight to that section over there (points) — the Louboutins. And I like Roger Vivier, they're beautiful.
I love this Brian Atwood section right here.
Oh yes! We wear a lot of Atwood on the show. Very nice.
And who is your dress by?
This is Prada. (swoon)
So the premiere of the second season of Lipstick Jungle is coming up.
I know, I'm so excited. We're very proud of this season. There's a lot of new cast members. Mary Tyler Moore, playing Brooke's mother, and Rosie Perez, plays my publicist. She's fantastic, so funny. She's a trip — she's so much fun. Carlos Ponce, my new love interest, we have a love triangle with me, him, and Andrew.
Your wardrobe on the show. I mean, you play a fashion designer.
I do, and I have the best wardrobe I think on television. I'll say it!
Has playing a fashion designer made you more interested in fashion?
Definitely. I wasn't aware of how serious fashion was. To me clothes are about serving what you're doing that day. As an actor it helps you take on a new persona. I find it kind of emotional, too — when I want to be something else or feel something different. It can really change someone's perspective and how they carry themselves. I love how the designers reinvent themselves every year.
