Who's the latest It Girl everyone in fashion is talking about? Irene! No, she's not a gorgeous, 5'11 supermodel from the Ukraine, she's the hurricane that's been slowly making her way up the east coast. While Irene wrecked serious havoc in North Carolina, NYC was lucky enough to miss the brunt of her force. And, fashion people being fashion people, they had a lot to say about it. Check out our top ten Irene-related fashion tweets from this weekend.
COACD (@coacd) Heard Irene is signing w Wilhelmina @LaDivafina
Coco Rocha (@Cocorocha) I told @mickinyc it was Irene or me. RT @LaDivafina We sent her home, options released RT @COACD: Heard Irene is signing w Wilhelmina
Prabal Gurung (@prabalgurung) I think Irene might need a lil help with her PR after this wknd @KCDworldwide u might have a new client.
DKNY PR Girl (@dkny) Part of me feels like #Irene was a giant ploy by all the supermarkets on the East Coast.
Jessica Stam (@jess_stam) We survived #HurricaneIrene.. by baking brownies and building cinderblock walls to protect the basement.
Eva Chen (@evachen212) why aren't people asking the key questions of Bloomberg: are you a duck boot or wellington kind of guy?
Joe Zee (@mrjoezee) Last min pitstop at @wholefoods. Panic food shopping: chips, salsa, bananas, carrots, hummus, water, tuna, cereal. Irene or Superbowl party?
Peter Som (@peter_som) Since Irene is coming is it ok to stock up on Nutter Butters? Do calories count in a Hurricane? I think not.
Chris Benz (@cmbenz) Remember when Irene got bitchslapped by Steven on the Real World Seattle? #bored #funwithnames
Stylecaster (@stylecaster) Being evacuated on the weekend I was supposed to move was inconvenient. Missing the @BarneysNY warehouse sale...that's just wrong, Irene!
Irene might have been easy to joke about in NYC, where she did less damage than anticipated, our thoughts do go out to those in the Northeast who were affected by the storm.
