Plenty of Celebs at Philipp Plein’s $7 Mil Fashion Show

Philipp Plein - Front Row & Backstage - September 2017 - New York Fashion Week: The Shows

Philipp Plein was a must see fashion show for many during NYFW, and for good reason. The extravaganza kicked off with friend to the show Dita Von Teese performing a burlesque strip tease in a glamorous martini glass.


Then, Teyana Taylor slayed by crawling down the runway, and dippin’ and doin’ it during Future’s performance of “Mask Off.”

Super model Adriana Lima and Snoop Dogg’s dad Vernell Varnado appeared on the runway, as well as Snoop’s son Cordell Broadus. This was Cordell’s runway debut.

Nicki Minaj attended the show and preformed during Plein’s after party. Fifth Harmony was also in attendance.

This was the place to be for NYFW and Wendy’s wardrobe stylist Memsor Kamarake and wardrobe assistant Willie Sinclair saw it all IRL! They were excited to see Dita, and impressed by Cordell’s NYFW debut. They were also glad to see Teyana Taylor on the runway, and are happy for her success.

Rihanna Owned NYFW

FENTY PUMA by Rihanna Spring/Summer 2018 Collection - Backstage + First Looks

Between Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty launch, and her Fenty X Puma runway collaboration, there was plenty of talk about the Bad Girl.

The beauty line, which includes foundation, universal lip gloss, highlighter, and more, is so popular that deep foundation shades are sold out.

Rihanna Took Her "Bows" at the Finale of the Fenty Puma by Rihanna Spring Summer 2018 Fashion Show on the Back of a Motorcycle.

During Rihanna’s Fenty X Puma fashion show, there were motorcyclists flipping and flying everywhere. Eventually, models began showcasing the actual fashion. W magazine deemed the clothing to be motocross inspired.

Leslie Jones is NYFW’s Hype Girl

Christian Siriano - Front Row & Backstage - September 2017 - New York Fashion Week: The Shows

Friend to the show Leslie Jones went to NYFW and her reactions were welcomed by those who attended the show, and on the World Wide Web. Leslie sat in the front row at the Christian Siriano show and didn’t hold back how she felt.

Memsor also attended this fashion show and claims Leslie’s reactions and comments were enjoyed by the models and the audience.

Bye “Hot Felon,” Hello “Prison Bae”


“Hot Felon” Jeremy Meeks is so last year. This year is all about “Prison Bae”, Mehki Alante Lucky.

In April 2016, Lucky was arrested for exceeding the speed limit and driving a stolen vehicle in North Carolina. Lucky for him, Lucky didn’t actually serve any jail time. Like Meeks, Lucky’s mug shot launched his career and he signed with St. Claire Modeling.

Lucky made his NYFW debut, walking in the Helmut Lang Seen By Shayne Oliver show.
