There was a kerfuffle in the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week tents at Lincoln Center last night during the Perry Ellis spring 2012 show last night—and it wasn't because Matthew Settle, Chaske Spencer, James Ransone, Matt Barnes, Kelly Bensimon, or Nigel Barker were in the house. All day long, the only thing we'd been hearing from friends was: "Oh my god, did you see the werewolf from True Blood?" Well, we finally saw him—him being Joe Manganiello, above—and he was front-row at Perry Ellis, with the paparazzi and fans going completely bananas all around.

Also at the show? A gang of hot male models strutting the runway shirtless, in only their swim trunks. Guess what? We have a video of that. And pictures of the collection, too, after the jump. Really guys, Racked is the gift that keeps on giving this fashion week. Especially when it comes to male model ogling.

Some of our favorite looks from the spring 2012 collection:
