HIDE CAPTION

During New York Fashion Week, the red carpet turns into the front row, as celebrities flock to the tents to view the spring and summer 2015 collections.

It's no surprise to spot the likes of Jamie Chung or Louise Roe backstage at a show -- at this point, the model and fashion correspondent are NYFW vets. The usual suspects aside, there's always a new crop of young celebs at NYFW, hoping to gain some press by attending a show and wearing a designer's clothes -- we're looking at you, Joe and Nick Jonas.

Or, like Selena Gomez, they're looking to brush up on their fashion chops with a line or collaboration of their own (who knew Selena had such a great eye for sportswear?!). Then, of course, there are the fashionable young things -- actresses and street style stars like Vanessa Hudgens, Olivia Palermo and Kate Mara, who show up because they're cool, and they can. And, of course, there's always Anna Wintour, a celebrity in her own right.

We'll be tracking all the celebrities we spy at NYFW over the course of the week. Click through the gallery to see them all.
