Surrounded by a bevy of beauties was 'our' boy Matthew Williamson this week, at the opening of his first U.S. store in New York. A few of the famous faces to pop into the brand new 2,600 square foot store included Rachel Zoe, Mischa Barton, Heidi Klum, Joy Bryant and Lindsay Lohan, who has once again sparked concerns about her weight.

Guests swilled champagne and Rachel Zoe laughed off the fact that she was wearing the same dress as a mannequin, but it was Williamson who had the most to smile about.

"It's an amazing space with a beautiful layout which allows the customer to search out hidden rooms for accessories, and enter larger egg-shaped rooms for the ready-to-wear," he told Vogue.

Meanwhile, the current Twitter buzz indicates that gal-of-the-moment, Freida Pinto, could be wearing one of Williamson's designs to this weekend's Academy Awards.

'Matthew Williams[on] isn't dressing anyone for Oscars yet, but says: "Freida Pinto is interested." Go Slumdog,' tweets The Cut. Ooh, we can all but hope!
