This season was a bit different for me than past ones. I found myself spotting the editors and style icons whose style I stalk virtually within the distance of my camera lense. It was pretty fun to be able to spot some of the incredible people that I did – some often going unnoticed because they aren’t TV celebrities, but huge players at some of the top magazines and publications in the world (and thus unknown by most of the population). I’m 99% sure that one photo is Emmanuelle Alt. I saw her and honestly just took a few shots to get a better view thinking to myself, ‘that can’t be her there is no one talking to her or photographing her.’ But, after confirming her presence at NYFW this season I do believe I was just across the runway from the editor-in-chief of French Vogue.
One of the highlights was obviously getting to see Anna Wintour, in the flesh, at Carolina Herrera. Her interactions with Nicki Minaj were quite entertaining, especially after hearing that she apparently requested that Nicki sit next to her (according to Styleite/The Cut). Prior to Nicki’s arrival Anna was chatting with a man who was obviously ousted from the seat when Nicki’s crew ushered her in. I saw her hair and go, ‘is that Lady Gaga?’ because I couldn’t even see her due to the fact that her bodyguards were so big. They chatted it up and when the lights went down, Anna’s glasses promptly took their place as well (the rumors and depiction from the Devil Wears Prada are in fact, true). I actually got some shots of her cleaning them off mid-show that I’ll post. Stay tuned for some video too! Anna was rushed out of the show immediately – before you could blink she was gone. Not only did I get to see her take in a show, but also Grace Coddington and Hamish Bowles. An epic morning for sure, and a huge thank you to Maybelline NY for giving me a ticket to Carolina Herrera!
More to come soon, I promise! xoxo
