Jenny Packham Fall 2013 Fashion Event
Continuing her promotional visit to New York, Katherine taped a guest appearance on ABC's daytime cooking and talk show The Chew on Tuesday morning, before heading off to catch her second fashion show of the week at Jenny Packham's Fall 2013 Collection event in the afternoon.
The show kicked off at 1pm at the Lincoln Center with Katherine, wearing a sleeveless black cocktail dress with crystal beading from the British designers AW13 Collection, sitting in the front row alongside actress and singer Vanessa Hudgens.
Speaking to the press attending the show, Katherine said that she preferred the relaxed vibe of the New York Fashion Week scene to the intensity of the red carpet in Los Angeles. "In LA it's all about if you mess up on the red carpet. I feel like with this [gesturing to the catwalk], it's all about the fashion. Here you get to be a little more risky and you get to try things. In LA, you've got to play it safe."
"I just love that [Packham] is so graceful," she added. "There's also a bit of an edge, like the crystals on this dress, which make me feel a little rock 'n' roll but at the same time it's ladylike chic. She’s elegant but still fun."
Speaking to Elle about her personal fashion, Katherine revealed, "I'm struggling a bit with that. I'm working on it; I'm not sure. Probably more classic, but every once in awhile, I want to go for something more funky, different, and trend-setting, but I'm not very good at managing it."
And when she is visiting New York, what is her favorite hangout? "Bergdorf Goodman," she laughed, "Which is also probably my favorite place in the world."
Katherine's aforementioned guest spot on The Chew will air on Wednesday, February 27th at 12:00pm PST/CST and 1:00pm EST. Please check local listings for details.
Meanwhile, Wednesday will see Katherine pre-record an appearance on the Rachael Ray Show, where she will be bringing along some adorable puppies to help spread the word about pet adoption! The syndicated show will broadcast Friday, February 15th. She will also visit Anderson Cooper on Anderson Live, for a slot that will air on Fox, March 8th.
