This morning's Lagerfeld show was scheduled for 10:00 am. Doors started to open at 10:49 am. It was cold and it was raining and this is what I heard - all polite, all amusing. Hilary Alexander: "Get me someone from the press office please. Are we just supposed to wait here in the rain? Karl would be furious if he knew about this." Virginia Smith & Filipa Fino: "Standing's over there," says the security guard. "I'm not standing though," Virginia politely responds. "Standing's to the right," he turns around to ignore her. "Grace! Can you please help us?" she asks. Grace Coddington walks by with the Harlechs in tow - both Lady Amanda and Tallulah - and even they can't get Vogue's Fashion and Accessories Market Editor past the man who's devoted his morning to making sure she stands. (She made it through a moment later.) Glenda Bailey: "But she's very important! You must let her in," because Roopal Patel's hard invitation was missing. Clueless, but magnificently dolled up older woman from the middle of the crowd: "This is outrageous! You must let us in! Why would you let her in and not us!" Her was a Margiela clad Carine. The only person who slipped by without an ounce of trouble and the only person with a personal umbrella holder named Emmanuelle Alt.
