I’ve been in
London for roughly 12 hours and I’ve almost been run over twice. Once, by a car that flew out of nowhere (my fault, kind of) and the second time, by a swarm of paparazzi outside the London Fashion Week tents at Somerset House. I thought that the photogs at
New York Fashion Week were aggressive, but it turns out they’re nothing compared to the paps in London. I watched them accost some poor young British starlet after she jumped out of a cab. She moved fast, but the photographers kept pace and I didn’t see the hoard coming until they had surrounded me. (Admittedly, I’m still a little foggy after that overnight flight from Toronto). Actually, I’ve been inadvertently photo-bombing people for two seasons. You may remember the infamous
Kardashian incident of NYFW spring/summer 2012. Yup, that’s me looking homicidal. And today, again, I sat directly behind three Brit stars (no clue who they were) and probably ended up making goofy faces that will end up in the British tabloids.
But not to worry, it hasn’t all been near-death experiences and drive-by photo shoots. In the short time I’ve been in London, I’ve seen some fantastic fashion. An early highlight was
Felder Felder‘s yellow beaded flapper dress that would suit
Downton Abbey’s Lady Mary.
