Jessica Biel may have some stiff competition for her man right around Valentine's Day…and we mean stiff.

Her man, Justin Timberlake, is set to show off his William Rast wares next month at New York Fashion Week, right around the time another sexy lady—Barbie!—takes to the runway.

E! News has confirmed that Timberlake's clothing line with bestie Trace Ayala will make its Bryant Park debut on Feb. 16 at 7 p.m. And, while the crooner will be there, he won't be taking to the lengthy stage for a performance.

Barbie, however, will be celebrating her 50th birthday all week, including a runway show of her own with looks inspired by her. Noted designers Anna Sui, Cynthia Rowley and Vera Wang are among those slated to send creations down the catwalk in the doll's honor, and Christian Louboutin has created custom Barbie-pink shoes for the event.

The dapper dude and demure doll aren't the only stars heading to the tents...

Despite several major designers dropping out of this season's festivities—Wang, Betsey Johnson and Monique Lhuillier—there will still be plenty of star power. In addition to JT and Babs, the week kicks off with the Heart Truth's Red Dress Collection, which typically sends celebs down the catwalk in stunning scarlet confections. The Fall 2008 show featured Liza Minnelli, Sara Ramirez, Jenna Fischer, Allison Janney, Ashanti and Heidi Klum, to name a few.

And, speaking of the Project Runway hostess, the embattled reality competition will be taping its sixth season finale on Feb. 20 even though no decisions have been made as to when (or where) it will air.

Earlier in the week, season four winner Christian Siriano is planning to show off his latest collection inspired by Egypt.

A-listers are expected to flock to the tents for other VIP shows, including Charlotte Ronson (Samantha and Mark's sis), Carolina Herrera (Renée Zellweger rarely misses it), Tommy Hilfiger, Zac Posen and Diane Von Furstenberg, where Whitney Port and her fellow City dwellers will surely make an appearance.
