More 'America's Next Top Model' Sightings at New York Fashion Week
Jaslene Gonzalez's appearance in the GenArts Fashion Show last week was an interesting development for fans of both high fashion and America's Next Top Model. But she wasn't the only America's Next Top Model sighting from the many New York City events.

Mama Tyra Banks was on hand, of course. Now that New York City is the new home for her talk show this season, it's only fitting that she would be sure to put in several appearances. This photo is from the Fashion Rocks events, where Tyra rocked the currently hot but tough-to-pull-off bootie look. Do you think she succeeded?

She also appeared at a peripheral Fashion Week event, the opening of the Just Cavalli flagship store, an event attended by another face quite familiar to America's Next Top Model fans.

Jay Manuel was on hand at the opening of the store as well, only he was on the clock. He was there in his capacity as Style Correspondent for E! Network, interviewing the celebrities as they arrived for the big event.

Meanwhile, another America's Next Top Model authority figure was taking in the runway shows. Nigel Barker was spotted at the BCBG looking for some fresh ideas for his other job as a photographer. He told E!, “"What I'm looking at is what would photograph fantastically…I'm looking for the colors. I'm looking for the contrast. I'm looking for the way designers are putting looks together. They give you ideas."

There were creative ideas on display at the MetLife Snoopy in Fashion show. We first told you about this event when it was announced that Project Runway's Laura Bennett would be showing her designs for Pigpen and Woodstock. She wasn't the only reality star to contribute to the show. America's Next Top Model winner Caridee English took a turn down the runway as a model for this benefit. 

The countdown has started to Cycle 9 of America's Next Top just a little over a week, we'll all have the chance to see if any of the new crop of modelettes looks likely to be appearing at the next Fashion Week.
