While this strategy seems to be on the decline, a few designers still rely on celebrities to bring buzz and attention to their New York Fashion Week shows. Of those front row celebs, there are those we expect to see -- Blake Lively, Alexa Chung, Dakota Fanning -- and the ones who surprise us, and not necessarily in a bad way.
In fact, seeing actors completely out of context is one of our favorite things, like when "Downton Abbey" cast members wear modern clothes -- so weird! This week, we were treated to glammed-up versions of Crazy Eyes and Poussey from "Orange Is the New Black" and Stark family members from "Game of Thrones." And, Tracy Morgan!
