New York Fashion Week officially begins on Thursday, and if we learned anything from the fall 2013 season's Nemo fiasco, it's that neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night can stop it from going down.
So, despite the seemingly never-ending blizzard conditions furiously blanketing the Big Apple today, models from all over the city strapped on their snow boots Monday and trudged to their casting calls, visions of Tulum and low cal hot chocolate dancing round their perfectly bone structured heads.
Of course, not even freezing cold temps and stinging wind chill could stop them from snapping a few selfies. Scroll through the photos below from the warmth and comfort of your own home or office, and be grateful for once that you weren't born with model-good-looks. #blessed.
