New York is unreasonably cold right now. Like impending-blizzard-freeze-your-Rag & Bone-covered-butt-off cold. This is exactly why we, and fashionistas nowhere near New York, are praising the fashion gods (more like IMG & various PR people) for the glorious amount of New York fashion week shows livestreaming this week. We wrangled 89 shows (89!) and presentations to tune into over the course of the next week...with even more coming in! The best part? You won't be judged for taking in these shows in your pjs over some popcorn or pizza or half a bottle of wine... See any shows we missed? Let us know!
Fashion icon, party girl, philanthropist and all-around It-girl Zelda Kaplan passed away last week in the front row of Joanna Mastroianni's show. The Cut caught up with the designer, who said she had no idea what had happened until her show was over and she had left Lincoln Center. "Oh, I was beyond shocked. First of all, I had no idea what was going on backstage; I didn’t even find out about it until we were — not only was the show over, but we were out of Lincoln Center. I had no idea," Mastroianni said.
New York Fashion Week Finally Wrapped Up: We saw lots of well-dressed people, random celebrities, underaged models, and, of course, beautiful clothes. The Grammys Happened:... and (gasp!) celebrities attended, wearing clothes and everything! Adele Won Six Grammys, Covers March Vogue: While we wish the Fashion Bible had opted for a full-legnth shot of the singer, we will co-sign on her glorious cleavage, featured prominently for all the world to see. In short: Girl, woooork! Whitney Houston Dies: One of the greatest voices of our generation (read: ever), Whitney Houston passed away in her Beverly Hills Hilton hotel room last weekend. She was 48 years old. She will be sorely missed by all.
Zelda Kaplan, a beloved socialite, fashion icon and humanitarian, passed away today while sitting front row at Joanna Mastroianni's show at Lincoln Center. According to the New York Post, witnesses saw Kaplan "slump forward" in her seat after the models had started walking down the runway. Security carried her out of the show, where EMT's gave her CPR before an ambulance arrived and took Kaplan to the hospital. Kaplan's friends gave the Post the following statement: "Zelda Kaplan passed away suddenly today at the age of 95 from natural causes, she was surrounded by friends and family. She will be deeply missed and always loved." Kaplan was known for her distinctive style, favoring bold African prints, hats and oversized sunglasses--as well as her youthful spirit and boundless energy. She was referred to as a "club kid" and an "It girl" well into her golden years.
