The Anthonys, Jhene Aiko, Ciara, Estelle and more all kicked off New York Fashion Week with lots of front row action and parties. Get all the pic from day 1 inside…

Carmelo Anthony hosted a party at Santina underneath the High Line in New York Thursday night to kick off Fashion week. The Knicks baller rocked a grey, two button notch lapel jacket, navy turtleneck, and grey trousers all by Ermenegildo Zegna Couture. And LaLa kept it catty and sexy in a leopard plunging gown.

But that was only one of her many changes of the day:

She braved the arctic temps in a cobalt blue croptop and skirt with a cream duster coat to hit up a couple shows.

And she rolled to the VFILES MADE FASHION show earlier in the day with son Kiyan…who is tip toeing around in a corrective boot.

Cuba Gooding, Jr. was also spotted there, next to Kesha.

Models Keenyah Hill and Shaun Ross were also there, along with singer Justine Skye.

Jhene Aiko kept it sophisticated in an Honor NYC look as she hit the shows.

She doesn’t just wear the Forever 21 ethereal look everyday, she dresses it up when she needs to.

Ciara and her ring sipped coffee at Ralph’s in New York as she rocked head to toe Polo.

And she rocks it nicely. So nicely, that she fit right in with the models:

Model Tyson Beckford also hit up the Ralph Lauren Polo show.

And then THIS weirdness happened. But it was all in the name of art. Actress Tracee Ellis Ross (as Madame Hiver) attended the Rachel Comey fashion show at Pioneer Works Center for Arts & Innovation on Thursday. And the “Blackish” star didn’t hold back on channeling her a boozy character invented and played, convincingly, by Tracee Ellis Ross herself:

Ha! Those eyebrows…

Over at the Argyleculture show, Nicole Murphy and Rashad Jennings and Ms. Jay attended the show hosted by Russell Simmons X ModaBox fashion show.

And friends Estelle and DK Kiss were sitting pretty at the BCBG Max Azria show:

We feelin’ Estelle’s look?
