How to Sneak Into a Fashion Show
Thanks to everyone who keeps emailing and MySpacing me about my life in fashion. I swear, it’s not that exciting, but most of you seem dying to crash a fashion show just to see what it’s like.
So. I figured I’d tell you how. Try it and let me know how it goes…
1. Say you’re someone’s assistant. WHY IT WORKS: because the people manning the front of house at fashion shows are killing for important people to come. If someone less important gets sent in their place, they’ll still be happy. Pick the name of a well known (but not famous) fashion person. Be very nice and say you were sent at the last minute. But warning, this only works at SMALLER shows!
2. Pretend to be a model. WHY IT WORKS: If you’re tall and you can throw on some sunglasses and a trench coat, you’ll look just like Milla Jovovich. And if one of the models gets stuck in traffic, you’ll probably get to replace them, just like Whitney in The Hills!
3. Sneak in with a celebrity. WHY IT WORKS: Famous people are surrounded by so many stylists, publicists, US Weeklyists, etc., that they can’t keep track of whose legit. Walk in with the posse and pretend you know what’s going on.
4. Buy 10 cups of Starbucks. WHY IT WORKS: Because for dressers who have been up for 48 hours straight fitting models in their clothes and making last minute adjustments, quality caffeine is the best bribe ever.
WARNING: If you try ANY of these methods, make sure you dress incredibly well and also, DO NOT EXPECT A FRONT ROW SEAT. In fact, do not expect a seat at all – just be happy you’re in!
