Who needs critics when you've got so many friends? Kanye West's fervor for fashion design shows no signs of abating, and to toast his Fall 2012 collection, he invited an adorbs group of buddies to grace his front row. Talk about a power posse: Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz, Cassie Ventura, Sean Combs and Azealia Banks, people! And! Kim Kardashian, Common, Rosario Dawson, and even Peter Dundas! So how did Kayne and crew celebrate post-show? Go-carting, of course. Now that we would have liked to see.

After bidding adieu to Fall '12 collections with Paris' final shows today, another whirlwind month of runway-hopping has wound down. A mixed bag of emotions result: mostly relief (phew!) with a touch of premature nostalgia (womp...). Never a better moment to cast our gaze back a few weeks prior to check out the shoes that had Chic salivating in New York and London, from Narciso's footwear debut to some cherry-red strutters at Mulberry.

At Cosmopolitan’s “Fun Fearless Female Awards” last night, the upper throes of the Mandarin Oriental were packed with a coed mishmash of kickass ladies and gents (well, obvi!). Chic caught up with baby-faced crooner Robin Thicke before his performance during dessert…
 
What could you stand to be more fearless about?
That’s tough! I’m pretty fearless—at least I think I am.

When are you too ballsy?
I’m pretty brazen, but those are private answers!

What puzzles you most about the fairer sex?
Why they want everything! It’s never enough.

What are you wearing tonight?
I don’t know, actually. [pulls open his blazer to check.] Balenciaga!

Have you ever done the front row circuit at Fashion Week?
Yes, I went to a show a few years ago. I forget the designer’s name.

What did you think?
I didn’t love it that much.

The clothing?
Oh, no—the clothing was wonderful! It was the experience. All that cattle-prodding. Ugh!

If it ain't broke...Gucci is extending its relationship with Charlotte Casiraghi (refresher: she's the daughter of Princess Caroline and granddaughter of Grace Kelly) as the protagonist of the new "Forever Now" campaign, conceived by creative director Frida Giannini. Over the course of the next two years (a lifetime in fashion!) Casiraghi will be shot by four different photographers, starting with Peter Lindbergh. Chic adores Giannini's statement about Casiraghi: "Over the last two years I have had the pleasure and privilege to get to know Charlotte through our shared passion for horses. She not only embodies the beauty and the grace of the equestrian, but is also a wonderful ambassador for the sport." Looky look for the ads worldwide tomorrow.

Dear Alicia,

Darling, we're thrilled that you're conquering Paris Fashion Week like some kind of Real Housewife of Bordeaux. You've been busy, and we don't blame you one bit! Who wouldn't want to attend Stella, Valentino, YSL, Givenchy, Chanel, and more and more and more? But we need to talk. This is not a look. We know someone has been paid a lot of money to tell you that this is flattering. They are lying to you. We know it's not your fault!

Love! Love! Love! Your devoted Chic
