2006 CFDA Fashion Awards in New York on Monday, June 5, 2006.

When I arrived at the event I had to decide on which side would be the best side to view the arriving celebrities. I chose the right side, which was at the curb cut out where the celebs exited their cars. The left side caged fans never had a good view as they were too far, and the photographers blocked their view.

My view wasn't much better, but on occassion I recognized people. My photos just didn't come out too hot. The guy in the left of the photo is a hot shot publicist. His client list includes Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks, Jessica Simpson, and Terri Hatcher. His job is to lead the celebrity through the crowd and making sure the important press get a shot of her or an interview. He's waiting for someone big and is probably on the phone trying to figure out their estimated arrival time. Here's Amanda Bynes. Yesterday she wouldn't have been as important, but on this particular day it was announced that she was to star in the movie version of the musical Hairspray with John Travolta, Billy Crystal and Queen Latifah. The press went crazy screaming her name and keeping her on the Red Carpet for a good 15 minutes thwarting Alicia Keyes and Carol Alt's time on the Red Carpet Sometimes it was hard to get the shot, as strangely enough NYC has laws where you must keep the sidewalk clear and open, even when superstars are preparing to walk the Red Carpet. It's part of that blase attitude towards celebs, maybe that's why so many live here. This is Leon Tally fashion editor for Vogue. He's wearing a dyed alligator coat. He's almost 7 feet tall. He's the Anna Wintour's right hand man. He probably has skin as thick as an alligator since he has to deal with her all the time.
