Kaia Gerber makes her debut
Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber’s 16 yo daughter Kaia followed in her mama’s footsteps and made her modelling debut at the much-anticipated Raf Simons’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection for Calvin Klein. Her mother and brother Presley, also a part-time model watched and cheered from the front row.
Gigi Hadid’s shoe malfunction
At the Anna Suii/BED|STU show, Gigi Hadid misplaced a shoe but dealt with the situation like a total boss—so much so that it took a few seconds for people to notice that she’d been walking on the ball of her right foot in order for it to look like she was wearing both heels! Towards the end of the show though, her sister Bella offered her support and a shoulder as they walked arm and arm and closed the show.
Rihanna’s moto-cross entry
Why would you expect any less drama at Rihanna’s show? The Barbadian belle called in moto-cross riders to leap off millennial pink sand dunes and made a big splash riding pillion for this edition of her FentyxPuma gig.
Ralph Lauren’s show in his vintage garage
When it came to personalization, Ralph Lauren left no stone unturned, hosting his show in his own garage in Bedford Hills in upstate New York. Guests were chauffeured to this extremely private location where they not only go to witness the automobile-inspired collection that celebrated his 50th year in the business but also took a closer look at the vintage Jaguars, McLarens and Alfa Romeos, just a few among some of the most expensive cars in the world.
Marc Jacob’s closes on a silent note
Marc Jacobs closed NYFW with an utterly silent show—a stark contrast to the otherwise noisy nights that are commonplace at fashion week. The other highlight? Models wearing turbans from all over the world—an ode to the best headgear possible—the towel a woman ties on her head as soon as she steps out of the shower!
Diversity becomes a big talking point
Fashion’s been experiencing a lot of diversity lately and this edition of NYFW made a compelling case by putting plus-sized model Ashley Graham in the Michael Kors show once again (minus any makeup, mind you!) with model Teddy Quinlivan coming out as transgender around the same time!
