Why Fashion Week is the gift that keeps on giving...
1. Rihanna “hooks up” with Travis Scott
The hottest new couple in showbiz have gone public. Sort of. Rihanna and rapper Travis Scott were pictured kissing and getting hot n’ heavy in general at an NYFW after party last night. According to E! News, she “likes him a lot”.
2. Kanye West annoys actual fashion designers
Kanye West’ last minute decision to show Yeezy 2 is causing serious upset with established names like Anne Bowen and Naeem Kham who were scheduled to show at the same time. At the eleventh hour, West has decided to show at 12pm on September 16 and Bowen hit out, saying: “Kanye knows he is a media sensation and it is just not ethical to do this. “
3. Everyone fell at Givenchy
Supermodel Candice Swanepoel wasn’t the only model to faceplant on the Givenchy runway (although she was the most famous). In what might be the worst marketing for their new heels, Pooja Mor also struggled to walk straight in them and fell over a box (because boxes are best placed in the middle of a catwalk). Two women who are actually to paid to walk in uncomfortable shoes can’t even do it, so what hope is there for the rest of us?
4. Down Syndrome model Madeline Stuart worked it
Australian model Madeline Stuart (18), who has down syndrome, made her much heralded NYFW debut at Hendrik Vermeulen . Her mother Rosanna proudly said: “. It’s about fighting the fight for all the people out there that are a bit different.”
5. Cindy Crawford’s daughter Kaia Gerber makes her debut
Following in her mother’s supermodel footsteps, 14-year-old Kaia Gerber, Cindy Crawford’s daughter, appeared at NYFW for the first time. While she wasn’t walking the runway (yet), she did sit front row at Public School and is expected to appear in the coming years.
6. David Beckham sitting FROW
Victoria Beckham has taken her eponymous line from strength to strength since its introduction in 2008 and her hunky husband David has been along for the ride, much to our delight. David was sitting front and centre once again to cheer on his wife of 16 years during the most important moment in her career. Looking like David Beckham and even making Anna Wintour smile.
7. Kim Kardashian and Courtney Love are BFFs
Randomly assigned seating next to a celebrity is par for the course when you’re a star at NYFW. But major points to Givenchy who sat Kim Kardashian and Courtney Love next to one another and giving us one of the best selfies we’ve seen.
