New York Fashion Week: The Best Of Backstage


New York fashion week ended last night. But before London fashion week overtakes us, here’s a look at some of our favorite shots from behind the scenes. These are just some of the false nails used at the Blonds show. Note the googly eyes.

Every girl in the show deposited a little trail of wig-glitter as she walked the runway.

Jeremy Scott’s collection included furry platforms.

And all the models had candy-colored extensions woven through their hair, which was styled in bunches. Except this model, Charlotte Free, whose hair is pink already.

Kanye West sat front-row at Jeremy Scott, next to Vanessa Hudgens.

At the party West hosted with VMan, what was said to be $5,000 in $1 and $2 notes was blown through the air by giant industrial fans. Mixed in were these paper Kanye fun dollars, which most guests ignored.

Kerry Washington, Zoe Saldana, and Kate Bosworth sat front-row at Calvin Klein.

Lara Stone closed the show, making her sole runway appearance of the season.

Mizrahi’s runway show included these poodles.

Gwen Stefani gave 16 out of her L.A.M.B. show’s 48 looks to black models. Another eight Asian models were cast. I didn’t see a single other show this fashion week with that kind of diversity.

When Kingston ran out onto the runway to take his mother’s hand, I actually said, out loud, reflexively, “Awwww!”

The Naeem Khan show was really beautiful.
