Katie Couric loved the older models at Markarian’s show

Katie Couric loved models as much as the clothes at a New York Fashion Week show.

There was a wide range of ages on the runaway at the chic Markarian show at the Upper East Side’s Ukrainian Institute on Wednesday in front of an A-list crowd.

“I love that there were some more mature models,” Couric told us. “And some women who were not stick thin. It captured a diverse group of people. As someone who is 65, I really appreciated seeing an older model in the show.”

The broadcast journalist and “Going There” author sat front row with her daughter, Carrie Couric Monahan, 25.

Couric told us it was her only show of Fashion Week — and Carrie’s first fashion show ever. The elegant brand has special significance for the family, she told us. Carrie wore a dress from the line, designed by Alexandra O’Neill, for her sister Ellie’s upstate wedding to Mark Dobrosky last year.

“The clothes are just beautiful,” Couric told Page Six. “They are so feminine. The fabrics are so pretty.”

Candace Bushnell, Lili Biffet, Mikhail Baryshnikov’s daughter Anna, Indre Rockefeller, Ivy Getty, and heir to the Belgian throne, HRH Princess Elisabeth, Duchess of Brabant also attended.

Also sitting in the front row in a blue dress was Nicky Hilton, who just gave birth to her third child and first son with hubby James Rothschild in June.

“I’m a pro at this point [at motherhood],” she told us. “And I have my two little girls to help with my boy.”
