    Designer Richie Rich and Ellen Degeneres walk the runway at the Richie Rich Spring 2011 fashion show at Lincoln Center last night.

    The scene at Heatherette designer Richie Rich's show was as frenzied as ever last night, as groupies and established editors alike pushed their way in and papparazzi craned to get shots of Ice T posing calmly with groping fans. 

    When the circus, er, show, got underway, it was one act after the next, from ballet prancers to bored-looking S&Mers.

    For the finale, a loud blast signaled the drop of sparkly confetti over the runway, and a spiky-haired, silver-suited Ellen DeGeneres appeared for a solo strut. Then Richie Rich joined in, and hand in hand, they preened for the adoring crowd.
