At NYFW, I saw a few people from the world of fashion reality TV. Let's start with the ones who were kind enough to stop for photographs. First, I saw Robert Verdi (stylist) walking by and asked if I could take his photo. As soon as he stopped for me, he was swarmed by photographers. He jokingly said that he was going to charge $3 a photo. He knows how to work a crowd.
I noticed his cool shoes when he started to walk away -
He was with Jay from America's Next Top Model, who also kindly posed for photographs that day (but not the next when he was with Nigel Barker) -
Kelly Cutrone, fashion publicist and owner of People's Revolution, stopped when I asked her. However, she was consistent with her tough personality and did not smile -
The next day, I saw Nigel Barker, photographer from America's Next Top Model. He was racing through the courtyard and did not stop for photographs even though people were shouting his name. I could only get a couple of pictures as he was hailing a cab with Jay -
I saw many of the Project Runway Allstars
in September but none this time. I did run across a few contestants from previous seasons. I already told you about meeting Jay McCarroll
, which was a highlight of my trip. I also saw Jack Mackenroth -
and Diana Eng -
I also saw Zana Roberts Rossi, Editor for Marie Claire and former Project Runway judge. I am fascinated by her shoes that look like ski boots -
Here is Joanna Coles, Editor of Marie Claire and mentor to the Project Runway Allstars -
And my last photo is of a woman who was the host of a fashion television show that aired when I was much younger. I heard her voice and was immediately pulled back into my teenage world of fashion in which I was the only person I knew that cared to watch fashion shows on television. I would watch "Style with Elsa Klensch" and then this woman's show. I don't remember her name, but her voice I could never forget.
