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: looks from Luca Luca.
3:05pm: Emmanuelle Chriqui (Sloan on Entourage) is here. Also actress Malin Akerman.
3:10pm: More celebs: Ivana Trump, Serena Williams.
3:15: Looking at the names on the front row seats. Miss USA 2008, Amy Sacco of Bungalow 8, model Petra N?mcová and actress Perry Reeves are all expected.
3:30pm: Total celeb chaos in the front row. People swarming Serena Williams.
3:34pm: Getting really crowded. When we gonna start?
3:35: Here we go. Lots of white in these first outfits. Interesting sheer shirt, nude makeup. Very clean and streamlined, with little white booties.
3:37pm: Hair slicked back into little buns. Super sporty.
3:38pm: Still very little color. All looks are crisp white.
3:39pm: Wait, gold pants with a sheer asymmetrical shirt. And a little cropped gold jacket with salmon shorts and a sheer white tank. Everything is so sharp.
3:41pm: More colors: dresses in plum, a shiny sky blue jumper.
3:41pm: White booties a little too hospital-y for our taste, but loving the rest of it, especially the beautiful cut outs in the dresses.
3:45pm: Now seeing a series of long, liquidy gowns in silver and white.
3:46pm: And it's over.
