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: the flirty styles of New York designer Jill Stuart.
11:47am: Waiting to check in. The show is in the library next to the tents, and the space is amazing.
11:54am: It's incredibly hot in here. I don't think there's air conditioning.
12:08pm: I see Bette Midler and Howard Stern's girlfriend Beth Ostrovsky.
12:15pm: Lots of top editors: Elle style director Kate Lanphear, Ann Shoket of Seventeen. Also lots of socialites. Devorah Rose of Social Life magazine is here and so sickly skinny, it's ridiculous.
12:21pm:: Everyone here is so skinny. Leigh from Misshapes just walked in looking amazing in a black strapless dress.
12:44pm: In the front row: Michelle Trachtenberg, Lindsay Price, Leigh Lezark.
12:47pm: Grey leggings.
12:49pm: Boob out!
12:50pm: Heels wrapped in gauze. Everything is futuristic but also goddess-like.
12:53pm: Kerchiefs, big necklaces.
12:54pm: All girls very white and skinny.
12:55pm: Nigel Barker here. He's everywhere.
