It’s been rather steamy in New York these first few days of NYFW and, yes, the celebrities have struggled with what to wear just as much as everyone else.
Chase Stokes, the breakout star of Netflix series “Outerbanks,” was front row at Coach for Stuart Vevers’ 10th anniversary show, and in a sea of leather looks borrowed straight from the runway on the rest of the celebs, Stokes had opted for a simple white ribbed tank.
“I went for ‘New York heat wave chic’ esque,” he said of his look. “I was like it’s too hot to wear [anything else]. I applaud so many people who wore great looks but I was, like, you know what…”
Stokes may be a fashion week newbie but he’s learning the ropes quickly.
“This is my first fashion week. This is my first show,” he said, before clarifying that it was actually his second-ever fashion show, having made his debut a few days ago alongside his Coach seatmate Camila Mendes. “I’ve always been working so this is the first time I could come.”
The “Riverdale” actress and “Outerbanks” star were joined by other teen TV drama celebs, including Dove Cameron, “The Summer I Turned Pretty” star Lola Tung and “Queen Charlotte” star India Amarteifio, as well as Lil Nas X. Seated across the runway, perched between editors, was Jennifer Lopez, who commanded a swarm of photographers all on her own.
After the show, celebrities and editors alike joined Vevers upstairs at the New York Public Library for a special celebratory dinner.
