Fashion Week Blog Tile

Fashionista Sophia Bush dresses for herself, but she still gets the seal of approval on her style from her boyfriend Austin Nichols.

"I dress for me," the One Tree Hill starlet told me backstage Thursday at the BCBG Max Azria show. "I don't dress for men and I don't dress for other women. But there's a certain head nod [that he does] and I'm like 'OK, I nailed it!"

The actress jetted to NYC sans her costar beau straight from the show's set in North Carolina and managed to look very fresh-faced despite the fact that she'd just landed in the city at 5:30 a.m.

Her Fashion Week trip will be a short one, as she also shared that she's off to a weekend wedding...

Sophia said she has a wedding to attend before she's due back on set. Hmmm, could she be referring to her friend Amy Smart, who's set to tie the knot this Saturday?

The jet-setting starlet says the key to surviving Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is to remember that this is all fun.

"I think the biggest must have for fashion week is being a little carefree about it," she told me. "It's fun. It's a party. It's an exceptional thing to be a part of. I'm already coveting things that I'm seeing on people already. It's fun! If you take it too seriously, I think we'd all crumble under pressure."

Fellow front-row fashionista Elisha Cuthbert didn't hesitate when I asked her what her must-haves for this week are. "Good hair and makeup!" she told me.

Other VIPs spotted during the first day at the tents included Rachel Zoe and Vanessa Hudgens, who's back to wearing her short hair...for today at least!
