In Milan, he's already noted as a boundary-pushing show-thrower (remember last season's Alice In Ghettoland?), but Philipp Plein's first-ever moment at New York Fashion Week turned up to be an even crazier affair than any of us were prepared for.
First off, let's take a look at the front row. Tyga, Kylie Jenner, and Madonna. Paris and Nicky Hilton. Tiffany Trump and, well, nobody. The location? The New York Public Library. The models? Everyone from Sofia Richie and Young Thug to Pete Wentz and that hot felon guy, Jeremy Meeks. Who would've thought we'd ever see him again...
Simply considering the amount of A-list star power - and the subsequent security detail involved - most of the New York fashion crowd in attendance expected at least a hint of a delay. We mean, even a normal runway runs late. But when people start showing up for the after-party and the actual show hasn't started yet? That is some shit.
Despite the drama - and all the crashers who bum-rushed the library's steps - the presentation, which included a live performance by Nas, finally went on, as did the after-bash, more than an hour and a half after the time on the invite.
But whatever! Waiting revelers were treated to sing-a-longs with THE Naked Cowboy of Times Square fame, as well as green-painted IRL Statues of Liberty lining the entrance. When everyone was finally let in to let loose, the neon-lit library space, complete with hot dog stands, cotton candy machines, and bumper cars on the dance floor, was clearly worth shivering in the cold for.
