The Ting Tings Take Over The Box for Glamour's Fashion Week Party

Alex Chapman

Following our escapades at Jason Wu's after-party, we cabbed across town to The Box, a normally naughty venue (famous for its on-stage burlesque shows) that was appropriately tamed down for Glamour magazine's March issue party. As we arrived at the bar, we immediately spotted Emily VanCamp, the rising star of NBC's hit-show Revenge. "There's so much going on, it's amazing!" a humbled VanCamp told us of her budding career. "I'm also really tired, so I don't have that much time to process it all, but when I do get a moment to reflect, it's wonderful." Well, we definitely had some time to reflect on Emily's role on one of our favorite shows of all time, Everwood. Surely she gets recognized for her part in the cult favorite. "Absolutely, I still have fans from that show! The people that watched it are die-hard fans," VanCamp said, possibly referring to us. "It's still kinda hilarious that our last two episodes were called 'Foreverwood,' because people still love it to this day. It was a great show to grow up on."  And being that we were at a party celebrating Glamour -- both the word and the magazine -- we wondered what made Emily feel the most glamorous? "When I'm fishing or camping--I'm a tom-boy." What's the biggest fish she's ever caught? "A barracuda!" Don't worry animal lovers; she's a catch-and-release kind of girl. "Unless I'm gonna eat it." Fair enough. 

We then chatted up a freezing Olivia Palermo standing outside as she and boyfriend Johannes Huebl waited for their car service. What makes Palermo feel glamorous? "Dressing up--being in a Giambattista dress never hurts!" 

Tinsley Mortimer, who arrived late to the then-nearly emptied-out part, had a pretty good excuse for her tardiness:  "I'm so stupid, I went to The Box at Lincoln Center first! It's confusing!" Mortimer explained. "I love this place, but I haven't been in a few years, so it didn't really click." Although Mortimer may have gotten the wrong memo, she did say she's been a frequenter of The Box in the past. Any wild memories? "I actually remember at one point my ex-husband [Topper Mortimer] was brought up on stage and they tore his shirt off," the former reality TV star told us. "He was sitting there trying to play it cool and we were all laughing like crazy!" 

Following the The Ting Tings' high energy set, we caught up with lead singer Katie White. Any other fashion week plans? "We're gonna go to about four or five shows, which is exciting because I've only been to one fashion show," she said. Indeed, White does not consider herself a 'fashion person.' "Oh god, I tried a stylist for the Grammys, but I looked like my grandma going to a wedding, so I stopped it there."
