10 Certainties of Women’s Fashion Month – Vanity Fair
I flew to LA.. before New York Fashion Week for the Gigi Hadid and Tommy Hilfiger fashion show in Santa Monica, and it did not disappoint. The set was a 70s amusement park on Venice Beach, which, as you can imagine, was pretty cool looking. There were rides, flamethrowers, acrobats, games, food, a performance by Fergie, and if that’s not enough, there was a runway show to boot. Attended by Gaga, Lucky Blue Smith, K. Stew, Laura Dern, Kris Jenner, and a gaggle of L.A. A-listers. Gigi opened the show followed by Bella Hadid, and she closed the show with Hilfiger for a final bow.
After a brief trip to the California sunshine, it’s back to the cold and wind for New York Fashion Week. As I promised last week, here are 10 certainties that are always guaranteed during women’s fashion month.
The struggle will be real. People attending shows, especially by the time they get to Paris, will have meltdowns over nothing. Not getting into a show quickly enough, an accidental bump when finding a seat, or God forbid a badly placed seat, and the whole day could very well be thrown into chaos.
I will wonder to myself at least one time as I watch a show, “How could there possibly be this much fabric in the world?”
By the end of the month people will start to ask if I am surviving? I will roll my eyes and bite my tongue and say, “Yes, but it’s been exhausting,” which is what they want to hear. But what I will want to say is, “Yes, it’s fashion shows, I’ll be just fine. I haven’t been working in the Trump White House!”
Someone will wear black.
