To celebrate Carine Roitfeld’s ‘Icons’ portfolio, which appears in every international September issue of Harper’s Bazaar, the magazine’s global fashion director held a black tie party in the ballroom of the glamourous Plaza Hotel during New York Fashion Week.
Accompanying Louise Roe as her date, and subsequent body guard, in my navy Global Babe jumpsuit (for similar, see below) I found myself in a room filled with some of the most powerful people in fashion... and bottles… and bottles… and bottles of Champagne and Belvedere vodka.
Lady Gaga, US Bazaar’s September cover star, took to the stage and performed some sultry jazz for an audience that included Linda Evangelista, Lauren Hutton, Karolina Kurkova and Brooke Shields (oh, and Brooke Shield’s amazing arms, which deserve a special mention!)
The night was, I have to admit, supremely overwhelming, from sharing a lift with Alexa Chung and Karlie Kloss, catching Lady Gaga by the bottom during a paparazzi scrum (I’m not even kidding!) to generally navigating myself around a room full of people more than twice my height... However, in spite of all this fashionable drama, I did manage to secure a good ol’catch up with my pal Lou and one helluva fabulous hangover… Nice to meet you NYFW SS'15! It's gonna be emotional...!
