Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
In an effort to make reading Racked as much like being in the tents as humanly possible, we'll be liveblogging the shows all week, from the suspense of waiting in line (will the seats be any good?) to the drama of the runway (will anyone stumble?) to the post-show euphoria. This time around: Well-connected Spanish up-and-comer Frank Tell.
2:04pm: Here and everyone is milling about.
2:06pm: Leigh from Misshapes is here.
2:11pm: All the seats are labeled which is confusing.
2:13pm: Olivia Palermo here looking really skinny. Sitting a seat away from Elle's Kate Lanphear.
2:15pm: Julia Reston-Roitfeld.
2:18pm: Swag bags: Page Six Magazine, Fiji water.
2:22pm: Also in swag: Some kind of juice and a gift certificate to Solstice.
2:27pm: Serving some sort of minty cocktail.
2:28pm: It is hot and sticky in here—when are we starting?
2:31pm: Leigh on second cocktail.
2:33pm: People pretty dressed down.
2:36pm: Lots of seats still empty.
2:40pm: Guess we are starting. Still empty seats in the front row!
2:46pm: On the runway: Frizzy hair and runny mascara. Now that's beauty we can certainly achieve. The look here is delicate dresses with heavy boots. Like the wispier numbers, not feeling the ones with pailettes.
2:49pm: And just like that, it's over.
