Martha Stewart takes the runway at Dennis Basso’s fashion show

Martha Stewart was the model of the hour — even if it was unplanned — at Dennis Basso’s show at the Pierre hotel on Monday.

The domestic doyenne was sitting front row at the elegant show, and gave the designer a bouquet as he took his lap down the runway for the finale.

But Basso grabbed her hand and she sashayed with him arm-and-arm down the catwalk.

“He’s an old friend and you wish old friends good luck,” Stewart, dressed in a white lace design by Basso, told Page Six. She added that what she loves about his fashion is “the flamboyance, the beauty.”

Artist Ashley Longshore, sitting a few seats down from Stewart, was heard joking to the lifestyle guru, “Martha, will you butter my muffins?”

Also at the show was Kris Jenner, who sat next to Tommy Hilfiger’s designer wife Dee Ocleppo Hilfiger, Rosanna Scotto, Star Jones, Carmen Dell’Orefice, Carol Alt, Ramona Singer, Kelly Bensimon and “Sex and the City” author Candace Bushnell.

Bushnell has been all over the city for Fashion Week and attended the show in her signature Manolo Blahnik shoes.

“I walked here,” she told us. “I walked 14 blocks. They’re not that high. You have to walk in heels during Fashion Week.”

Basso, known for his luxurious evening wear, was celebrating 40 years in the business. 

“From my first show at the Regency in 1983 to this collection, it’s been an amazing journey,” he told us. “I have dressed so many amazing, beautiful, smart, interesting women. Some famous, not so famous, glamorous. I love it. I feel like I just started.”
