One of the perks of fashion week is that the shows, dinners and parties often take you to newly opened parts of the city, and for those of us who’ve yet to make it to the Gilder Center for Science, Education, and Innovation in the American Museum of Natural History, Tory Burch’s Monday night show helped cross that off the bucket list.
Sitting in the front row was a strong showing of A-list fans, including Uma Thurman, Emma Roberts, Naomi Watts, Lori Harvey, Hari Nef, Suki Waterhouse, Taylour Paige, Chloe Fineman, Maddie Ziegler and Madelaine Petsch, Monica Barbaro and Leon Bridges.
Tiffany Haddish, who’d flown in the night before and gone straight to the Net-a-porter party from JFK, also attended the show.
“I came from across the country. Started in Los Angeles. Changed on the flight. Straight to the party,” she said of the previous night. “It’s not fashion week dedication. It’s dedication. I’m always going to show up when I say I’m going to show up and when she show up, she ready? Black unicorn style baby,” she said, motioning to the necklace she had on, a diamond strand with a unicorn made of black diamonds as the pendant.
“I designed this. I designed it with Icebox. These are black diamonds and regular diamonds,” she explained.
Haddish has attended her fair share of fashion shows over the years, and when asked to explain what it’s like sitting in the front row, for someone who has never been, she had the following to say:
“If you’ve ever gone to high school and been at lunch and you get to the cafeteria before everybody else, you sit down before everybody else and you watch everyone walk into the cafeteria, that’s what fashion week is like,” Haddish said. “Except with way more beautiful people with way better style — and no one’s carrying a milk carton.”
