Since last Thursday (Feb. 6), New York City has been buzzing a little bit more than usual with a flood of the world’s chic and famous fashion enthusiasts. They’re in town to attend, walk in or showcase their latest designs for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. And some of our favorite hip-hop and R&B stars not only donned the most stylish threads in the business but also had the prime seats in the house — the front row.

From brands like Guess and DKNY to more couture lines like Miu Miu and Houghton, singers and rappers showed support for some of their favorite designers as well as saw the latest in 2014′s fall and winter collections.

Here’s highlights of the hip-hop and R&B artists who showed up to the runway shows around New York so far. Check out their style selections below.

Kelly Rowland is probably this year’s New York Fashion Week MVP as she has been at shows since the event began on Feb. 6 — sometimes she attended more than one show in a day as any fashionista should. Starting with Houghton, she also viewed the collections of JC Obando, Cushnie Et Ochs, Public School, Porsche Design, Opening Ceremony and MM6 Maison Martin Margiela.

Not too far behind in the fashion show count is Solange. Considered one of the most stylish R&B and soul artists for her fearless attitude toward style, she looked colorfully chic in every outfit she was photographed in. Solange attended Noon by Noir, Milly by Michelle Smith, Honor, Wes Gordon and Miu Miu. And even though she had a new look for each show, we give the singer props for rocking the same hot pink pumps to Miu Miu and Milly by Michelle Smith.

As the face of DKNY’s 2014 resort collection, it only made sense that Rita Ora would be at the designer’s runway shows. And the songstress didn’t disappoint by showing her support at the DKNY Women show as well as Donna Karan’s New York 30th Anniversary event, where she was seen chatting it up with Katie Holmes.

Before flying down to Washington, D.C. for the State Dinner for the French president, Mary J. Blige made sure to stop by the the Theatre at Lincoln Center for the Dennis Basso runway show on Feb. 10. Looking elegant in an ivory cocktail dress and matching platform pumps, Mary J. completed her look with a pair of Jackie O-esque shades and a fur — she looked glamorous and warm during the current polar vortex. She even took some time to say hello and take a few photos with the designer himself.

Bridget Kelly is no stranger to fashion. From her live performances to red carpet appearances, it’s easy to tell that she loves to get dressed up. And at this season’s New York Fashion Week, Bridget stuck to simplicity with a twist by rocking two black numbers. She sported a midriff-bearing wide-leg pant number at Guess Celebrates New York Fashion Week and a form-fitting little black dress at the Effy Jewelry’s 35th anniversary party.

Bridget’s appearance at Effy Jewelry’s 35 anniversary party wasn’t only to attend a fun NYFW event during the week, but it was also to support Adrienne Bailon, who hosted the event. The two also hung out at the Guess show. She wasn’t the only friend Adrienne met up with at New York Fashion Week; the latter also caught up with Fabolous at the En 1 Noir show in the Park Avenue Armory on Feb. 11.

Adrienne also made her own solo rounds at a number of shows in Manhattan. Showcasing various looks, she attended Desigual, Charlotte Ronson, Son Jung Wan, Michael Costello, Elie Tahari the Go Red For Women show and the Bionic Yarn/G-Star collaboration event, which was hosted by Pharrell Williams.

As we just mentioned, Pharrell unsurprisingly made a NYFW appearance. Although he attended one event, it was an important one. Named creative director of Bionic Yarn, the ‘Happy’ artist announced the collaboration between Bionic Yarn and G-Star to turn ocean plastic into denim clothing at the American Museum of Natural History on Feb. 8. Of course, he couldn’t forget to wear his infamous hat.

Pusha T, who’s currently working on his next LP, ‘King Push,’ shows his love for fashion by attending the Tim Coppens show at Milk Studios on Feb. 9. While he’s attending NYFW, the rapper doesn’t blend in with the preppy and more slim-fitting silhouettes of Coppens’ 2014 fall/winter collection. He sticks true to his comfortable style.
