From the spectacular to the bizarre, we’re all set to see them all this fashion week. Ready with your highest heels?
Let’s admit it: fashion week is fun. The collections, the celebrities, even the food and freebies. The entire event screams goodie! Although not everyone is lucky enough to have to just sit pretty on the front row, there’s something about the hustle of the fashion-forward crowd that makes us thankful we’ll be there to see it all. Now, we list down five things we want and don’t want to see this fashion week. Be it on the runway, the lounges, or along the massive hallways of SMX, there are always people, situations, and outfits that will make us either jump for joy or just cringe. —DALLAS DEEPKISS
HOT: Subtly sexy like this sheer Michael Cinco finale from last season. We’re loving it because it shows everything but, while keeping the class act put together. Though we would rarely see anything like this on anyone off the runway, the dress was quite the showstopper and, quite literally, ended the show with a shower of applause, gold confetti, and rain.
NOT: See-through dresses are one thing but letting that nip slip out of a couture creation is another. That’s what fashion tape is for, honey. Use it wisely or don’t even bother stepping out into the runway.
Scene or Seat Stealers?
HOT: We all can’t be celebs but who says we can’t stand out from the scene? We love pals and gals who dress to impress (not depress).
NOT: We’ve all been victimized—whether you’ve got a coveted front-row throne, or a comfy corner that you’ve saved for yourself, it’s one of our biggest pet peeves to see someone parked in our places the minute we get back from grabbing something from the hors d’oeuvres tray. If you see someone’s things — or worse, name — on a chair, it ain’t your seat.
It’s No Class Struggle
HOT: Making new friends! With the multitude of attendees at a show from editors to interns, there’s always someone to make small talk with if you’re flying solo at a show. We all avoid ending up next to someone not exactly your best friend, but see? Even the Anna Wintour ended up BFFs with rapper Nicki Minaj last New York Fashion Week. At least for one show.
NOT: Every collection has something to show, and it’s no surprise that some would go unthinkable lengths to get into their favorite designer’s show and plop onto the seat closest to the ramp. But oftentimes, a lot of people forget their manners. What’s this we hate? The rowdy crowds. Thank heavens some shows guarantee seats for everyone. No need to panic, people!
