Fashion Week is all about big debuts.

No, we're not just talking about clothing lines, although we, of course, were excited to see what Whitney Port's Whitney Eve and Avril Lavigne's Abbey Dawn had to offer. But the more exciting debuts this week have come in a much more human form.

This weekend, Sean Penn took his new gal-pal, Jessica White, for a stroll at Abe & Arthur's and, just last night, Style star Kimora Lee Simmons carried her newborn, Kenzo Lee Hounsou, for his first trip down the runway.

But the most exciting and surprising of them all was Mickey Rourke trotting out 20-year-old model Cheyenne Tozzi for all the world to see at Max Azria.

She was skinny and gorgeous and the 57-year-old (today!) couldn't keep his hands off her once she joined him in the front row, but, before that, he admitted he was there for the models more than the clothes.

Asked how he preferred them, he told E! News, "Fat."

As for blondes or brunettes, "It depends on what I'm drinking," he said, taking a swig from a can of Diet Coke. What that's the beverage of choice, he says, "it doesn't matter."

Needless to say, he was joking. Really he was attending his second fashion show in 14 years to support the well-known designer. Sort of.

"I like little short guys," he says, "and he's got a beautiful wife."



Rourke is such a colorful character! Get more in Fashion Week's Color Commentary.
