The stars came out for Christian Cowan’s runway show at Harmonie Club on Sunday evening.
“We’re almost twins. I didn’t know there was another version,” gushed one guest, upon seeing a very similar version of their metallic star-adorned dress worn by fellow show attendee Sarah Desjardins.

The show notes described Cowan’s collection as a “celebration of the five-point star,” and there they were all around the room — adorning clothing and also the front row. The starriest of all was Cowan’s partner Sam Smith, who wore a star-print shirt and held a bouquet of white flowers, and was seated next to their mother.
Other VIP guests included Bella Thorne, Jessie Reyez, Becky G, Avantika, Serayah McNeill and Joel Kim Booster, braving the New York winter in a shirtless look, mega shredded denim shorts and long lilac jacket.
“I will say when they pulled this for me I was like, ‘Will I be able to pull this off? And how cold will I be all night long?’ But I think I’m doing OK on both fronts,” Booster said of his Christian Cowan look.
It was the comedian’s second front row appearance of the day. “Listen, when someone like Christian Cowan invites you to a show, you go,” said Booster, who started the weekend in Atlanta at SCAD TVfest. “I mean, there’s no question. It’s been sort of a gauntlet weekend, but this is not one that I would’ve missed. I love his aesthetic. It’s so playful, you know? And it never feels like it’s taking itself too seriously, and that I think is a rarity,” he added. “It’s a party. It’s always fun to be here.”
