Playing Could NYFW Serve as a Preview for Oscar Fashion?

Lucky magazine editor-in-chief Eva Chen was at the first Oscar de la Renta show since the fashion designer's passing in October. The designer's creations have always been a favorite of Hollywood's A-list, so Chen checked out the show for a preview of what could appear on the Oscar red carpet Sunday.

Taylor Swift was present in the front row for the New York Fashion Week show with her supermodel BFF Karlie Kloss.

"Tay Tay looked amazing of course," Chen said. "She thoroughly enjoyed the show. We were all a little star struck by her. We're looking forward to seeing which of the dresses hot off the runway she's going to be wearing."

Both Taylor and Karlie appear on the latest cover of Vogue.
