Love was in the air last night at Lincoln Center, with a flower-themed show by Betsey Johnson and sweet treats on seats at Tracy Reese. Celebrities abounded, so we asked about their big plans for Valentine's Day.

When asked if she had a hot date lined up for Valentine's Day, Gabrielle Union, who was spied at Christian Siriano, Carolina Herrera, Nicole Miller and yesterday's Tracy Reese show, said, "I'm the chick, so someone else will be planning what I'm doing!" The actress, who dates Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade, added, "Hopefully there will be some better action later."

The hardworking and beautiful Anika Noni Rose, who attended Marc Bouwer, Carmen Marc Valvo, Byron Lars and Naeem Khan, said, "No big plans for Valentine's day ... I'm going to be working. Womp."

Model Sessilee Lopez looked scintillating, sitting front row at Mik Cire and Vivienne Tam. She kept coy but divulged, "Big plans, yes. But if I tell you, they won't be big plans anymore!"

And lastly, we ran into Lala Vasquez at a Lia Sophia gifting suite after she attended the Charlotte Ronson show. Lala said that she would be flying on Monday to "prepare for [NBA] All-Star Weekend," so her Fashion Week activities were limited. Does that mean she and new husband, NBA star Carmelo Anthony, will be doing something special?

She said, "Carmelo is in Houston, and I'll be traveling. But we still figure out cool ways to make the day special, even though we won't be together. And then we'll do something fun on a day when we are together." Is she big on Valentine's Day? "I think most women are, and he wants me to be happy. But as long as we can make a special day for us, it doesn't really matter if it falls on the 14th or not."
