Last night I should have been one of the 1,500 guests at Lincoln Center watching 150 models walking in the world’s largest fashion show. I should have been in the front row, sitting among the magazine editors and celebrities. I should have seen the 9 act show, 171 looks in all.
But instead I was in a lecture on The Oresteia written by Aeschylus in 458 BCE. I was in my Greek Mythology class instead of attending (or at least viewing the live stream online) this fabulous event.
This fashion show, hosted by Andre Leon Talley of Vogue and fashion blogger/model Hanneli Mustaparta, was supposed to kick start Fashion Week and Fashion’s Night Out.
The venue was pretty amazing, like a Shakespearian theater in the round.
I love Carolina Herrera’s Fashion’s Night Out shirt, it is the perfect representation of both her and her sense of style.
Thankfully, CBS is airing a recap of the show Sept. 14.
