What's going on in the runway world?

Beware: very image heavy.

New York Fashion Week has been such a blur. I've barely had time to review all of the collections. I barely have time to write this post. So let's play everybody's favourite game and replace collection comments with guesses as to who would look best in them (lazy? Nah. Just quicker. And much more fun, no?).
Note: some names may be repeated -- this will be due to either forgetfulness, or simply because said-repeated-starlet is so fashionable that she genuinely would appear twice on the list.
Note: as there is quite a few looks displayed here, and I am severely short on time, not all outfits will be matched with a name. But feel free to add yours in the comments.
And so we begin...

1. and 2. Diane Kruger.
3. Sarah Jessica Parker.

1. Eva Mendes.
2. Camilla Belle.
3. Clemence Poesy
4. Blake Lively.

2. Beyonce.
3. Maggie Gyllenhaal.

3. Chloe Sevigny.
4. Zoe Kravitz

1. Gwyneth Paltrow.
2. Rachel Bilson.

1. Lily Donaldson.

1. Carrie Underwood.

4. Penelope Cruz.

1. Kirsten Dunst.

3. Michelle Williams.

Too difficult. Haha.

1. Daria Werbowy.
2. Jennifer Love-Hewitt.

Too difficult....'s much harder to imagine celebrities in casual clothes, than evening gowns.

2. Gwen Stefani.
3. Kate Moss.
4. Kim Kardashian.

1. Carine Roitfeld.
2. Claudia Schiffer.

4. Jennifer Garner.

1. Gwyenth Paltrow (again).
2. Jennifer Connelly.
3. Lauren Conrad.

1. Thandie Newton.
2. Katie Holmes (only the ever-chic Mrs. Cruise could pull off something this daring).
3. Sofia Coppola.

Ah! That took hours! And I still don't even think I actually agree with the celebrities I picked. Please put me in my place -- let me know if I got it right. Or oh so wrong.
And now we're off to London!
