Blasblog From Paris: Morning Fashion Show Or Walk of Shame?
Sunday morning was a dreary, drizzly one, which made the fact that no one could get into the venue for Karl Lagerfeld‘s show even more irritating for some of the guests. “Do you really think an umbrella goes with this outfit?” one English fashion editor asked. “I didn’t come all the way to Paris for English weather either.” Beyond the sprinkling of rain, however, several other well-heeled young ladies were afraid of what roaming around the Tuileries in their fancy fashion frocks might look like. Would people think they were here for a fashion show, or would the sight all these ladies in high heels, short skirts, and leather jackets look more like a late-morning walk of shame? “I know it sounds like I’m a pushy fashion person right now, but I really want to get in the show,” an American buyer told me. “But I’m more concerned that all these people think I’m a hooker. Who else would wear these boots at 10 a.m.?”
