September 17, 2010 |  3:50 pm


Well-heeled and latte-fueled, celebrities flocked to New York Fashion Week, and the Ministry has sightings from this week's front rows and exclusive parties.

Katie Holmes hit town for the Spring-Summer 2011 presentation from Calvin Klein, sharing bench space Thursday with the likes of Julianne Moore, Kerry Washington and Isabel Lucas.

The evening before at nightspot Provocateur, GQ and Rocawear toasted the new collections with Jay-Z, Kanye West, rapper Common, Adrian Grenier and Serena Williams. Beyonce's sister Solange Knowles played guest DJ while stars sipped cocktails from Hennessy. 

Also on Wednesday, Us Weekly toasted its most stylish New Yorkers at Lavo. Honoree and host Mary J. Blige celebrated her peers to make the cut, including Katie Couric, Kristin Chenoweth ...

... Bethenny Frankel, George Stephanopoulos, Brian Atwood, Beth Ostrosky Stern and Barneys New York creative director Simon Doonan

Lady Gaga's fellow meat fashion lover and designer Jeremy Scott hosted the after-party for his show on the same evening, with Svedka flowing for partygoers like Tori Spelling's man Dean McDermott and model Leigh Lezark.

Taking a break from nighttime scandal, some lovely ladies hit the Victoria's Secret's Bombshell VIP suite, held at Lincoln Center (where the shows have moved to from long-standing location Bryant Park). The likes of Kourtney Kardashian, Denise Richards, Gabrielle Union and Emma Roberts popped in during the week's daylight hours to score undies and fragrances. 

Another sweet perk at the suite? A clearly necessary recharging station for phones and gadgets.

On Tuesday evening, Molly Sims showed to the Skintimate Studios bash, where she and "90210" actress Jessica Lowndes were on hand to congratulate the winner of Skintimates' recent film contest.
