For me, this Fashion Week can be summed up in one word: maniacal. I have not stopped. Between backstage interviews, front-row celeb stalking, and (oh yeah) reporting on the actual clothes, I have somehow managed to shower, sleep (with one eye open), and start all over again. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining. I live for Fashion Week and I wouldn’t have anyone else in my Sigerson Morrison black patent booties. BUT–I’m just sayin’–I’m tired. But like they say in the circus, the show must go on!
Backstage at Rag & Bone
There’s nothing like the backstage at Rag & Bone to immediately make you feel those high school insecurities all over again. With hot, hot design duo Marcus Wainwright and David Neville and their muse Freja Beha looking cool as hell, and male models and hipsters alike sipping on Peroni and smoking cigs, it’s no surprise this collection is a favorite of the cliques du jour. In fact, when I asked Marcus about the inspiration behind the spring collection he said, “It’s very Rag & Bone, it’s Freja.” Can’t argue with that! On a side note, I did see a striking blond model (not one of the Sashas!) crying by the bathroom backstage, with Gucci Westman’s makeup masterpiece dripping down her face, further proof that it’s not easy being beautiful.

Cool kids everywhere! I spy Sasha P!
