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: looks from Marc Jacobs.
8:34pm: I'm in the show! They were searching bags. For some reason, they wouldn't let anyone in with a bottle of water. The runway is covered with mirrors, kind of like a funhouse, but pretty.
8:42pm: Playing Santogold.
8:45pm: Can't see who it is, but from swarm of photographers a celeb is coming.
8:46pm: Miss Jay here. And Anna directly across from me with her daughter.
8:50pm: Anna's hair is perf. She is wearing what looks like a khaki trench and a gray sweater with a sparkly necklace.
8:53pm: Rachel Zoe here in red dress.
8:54pm: Glad I got here early—standing room already five deep.
8:55pm: Anna looks happy. Also spotted Simon Doonan looking dapper in blazer and skinny tie. So many celebs, but it's so crowded it's hard to tell who's here.
9:00pm: One black guy just showed up wearing no shirt, just a bustier with heavy eye make-up and a hat. Who is he? Another guy in a ballgown. And editor-in-chief of Harpers, Glenda Bailey, just took a seat.
9:07: Seat-stealers telling girls with tickets to squish. They are not having it. Fight!
9:08: Crazy Hat is here. Another boldface: Kanye.
9:10pm: Kelly Osbourne just showed up in a black-and-white asymmetrical dress. Her hair is perfect and she looks gorgeous (also, looks like a normal size.) She's in the front row.
9:15pm: They just said "Ladies and gentlemen, please take your seats. The show is about to begin."
9:16pm: OMG madness. People climbing over the runway to get seats. People sitting in aisles.
9:17pm: Think I see Christy Turlington.
9:23pm: Seriously, like a funhouse. Looks nerdy chic: Lots of knee-length, high-waisted skirts. Crazy pattern mixing, lots of layering, granny glasses.
9:25pm: Brocade, leopard bags.
9:28pm: Weird mash-ups. Super bright, glitzy and colorful.
9:30pm: Just saw Agyness Deyn. Very prim.
9:34pm: Sasha just almost tripped on a long dress. Now it's ending.
10:35pm Photos from the cheap seats uploaded. Enjoy!
