Karlie Kloss being the Queen of fashion week.
New York Fashion Week is THE fashion week in America, and I was lucky enough to work and attend for the third season in a row. I work every show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center and am fortunate enough to view most of those shows. In recent seasons it has become more of a spectacle than it has been in the past. You will no be walking around and notice the absurd amounts of street style bloggers and photographers wanting to snap your photo and along with them: the street style stars. More on that topic later.
Anyway, here are a few from my busy week to prove that I was there. I have more, but they’re really unnecessary to post.
There comes a time in your life when you graduate from youthful adolescence to an adult, some quicker than others. We got a taste in Karlie’s Vogue Italia editorial, but now, we see that our princess has grown up into a sex kitten to be reckoned with. During MBFW, I was not only lucky enough to stand next to Karlie, but I got to witness the walk. Put me down gently now, for I have seen it all.

Sasha P holding Mia Isis
Our beloved Sasha gave birth to her beautiful baby girl, Mia Isis, as she posted on Twitter. How lucky and magical would it be to have Sasha as mother?
I have no explanation for this. The extended cut is rather silly, but really, what is this? It’s a rather awkward watch, but the extended version is quotable.

There may be more covers coming, but I’m going to focus on these right now. I believe this may be Miss Kloss’s first shoot with Karl, so I’m going to say this is really major for her career. May she become a Chanel girl, amen. Covering in Jean Paul Gaultier haute couture, Karlie’s cover was the first to be revealed and obviously our girl is working it. Need the editorials ASAP.

Okay, okay, that’s it. I am officially on the Daphne train, ready to take off and chug along into “super” status. I get her and I cherish her. She is a stunning creature and I support her. Basically, Daphne, I salute you.

The issue has already hit newsstands, but I couldn’t pass this double cover up of my queen, Kate. Sadly, I don’t know which cover I need; possibly both. Virginal Sister Kate or the seductress with a deep red lip, black leather and lace? Decisions decisions.

Sexy, steamy, and dayum. David Beckham is in his underwear once again, this time for my company: H&M. This will first air on television and be broadcast throughout the world during the Super Bowl in my city of Indianapolis. I’ll be picking up the long johns tomorrow at work. What will you be buying for yourself or that sexy man in your life?
Okay, werque. Katryn is simply divine in this. Natasha, always stunning, but Katryn really steals the show.
Natasha Poly for Jil Sander
I’m in love with the Hitchcockian campaign for Jil Sander. The models looking through the broken glass and the shadowy staircase create the element of horror, which is polar opposite of the Spring presentation, yet the silhouettes emanate the feeling and a refreshing look at their inspiration.
