New York Fashion Week has come to an end…with a bit of controversy when “IT” girls Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss, Kendall Jenner, and Bella Hadid walked down the Marc Jacobs runway in fake multi-colored dread locks. People of the Twitter (like Children of the Corn but worse) didn’t appreciate the look.
“Why does Marc Jacobs think it’s okay to hire a bunch of white models and give them faux dreadlocks for his show?” asked one Tweeter. Were you bothered by the look?
New York Fashion Week is in full swing and, as per usual, the reality TV stars never miss an opportunity to be photographed. Lucky us. 😉
Above: former (maybe?do I dare dream?) Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes was chosen by Malan Breton to close out his show, wearing a dress worth over ONE MILLION dollars. Why NeNe? “She embodies all women,” gushed Malan. “She really does. I think from my fanbase and other people that I know, she’s the one that’s constantly motivating women to be confident, to be who they are. And, you know, I love the Housewives franchise; I’m friends with so many of them. NeNe’s a very strong person and knows who she is. People admire her so much. For me, as a designer for women, it’s very important to me that women know who they are when they wear these pieces.”
This time, Farrah was called a momager, which has a negative connotation, for “making” Sophia “work” New York Fashion Week. Here’s the thing, the outrage is based on assumption, as no one, but Farrah and Sophia, really knows if Farrah forced the fashion show on Sophia. Speaking to Us at the show, Farrah insisted that wasn’t the case, “If my daughter says she doesn’t like something, I don’t do it. It’s up to Sophia.”
Between the tight space and the plastic runway I can’t help but think Cynthia‘s show was held in the lobby of her hotel – without permission – and she lucked out when Mother Funders‘ Carla Stephens and Real Housewives of New York‘s Jill Zarin stumbled upon the “show” so Cynthia could pose for pictures with the “stars” who attended her show. Poor Cynthia. If I could stop laughing, I might feel sorry for her.
Yolanda arrived at the Tommy Hilfiger show to support daughter Gigi Hadid. With a picture of Gigi in her hand. Because, of course. Moments later, Yolanda kissed said picture (see the shot below) for the cameras. Because, let us never forget, Yolanda loves her Gigi.
