Rihanna was seen shopping at Intermix in the SoHo district, while Beckham showed her support at Bergdorf Goodman and Parker joined forces with couturier Oscar de la Renta at his boutique.
Wintour herself teamed up with Hollywood actress Kate Hudson, designers Diane von Furstenberg and Michael Kors, and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg to bring a touch of glamour to the borough of Queens with an appearance at department store MACy's.
New York Fashion Week runs until next Thursday (17Sep09).
