FASHION VICTIM? Coles While the fashion herd has moved on to Eurotrashier pastures, the heady musk of drama still lingers in Bryant Park. At least for some people. Despite multiple published reports placing her in the second row—and seeing her sitting there with our very own peepers— Marie Claire EIC Joanna Coles swears, swears, swears she was sitting front and center at Vera Wang.

In the absence of photographic evidence, we're inclined to take her word. But the fashion world now has a serious mystery on its hands: Who in the hell was the Joanna Coles impersonator we spotted glowering from row two? Is security at the tents that lax these days?
