Flash bulbs are the drug of choice during New York Fashion Week, for everyone from the models to the editors to the random passers-by outside the shows. Thus, there is much dressing for the camera, hoping that a lens focuses on the flamboyance. Each day during NYFW, we'll bring you the most obvious photog bait, as snapped by us.
Brightly dyed hair? Check. Revealing lace bodysuit? Check. Leather trenchcoat? Check. Copy of The Daily to show they belong? Check. Yep?this couple was born to be photog bait.
Spotted by us in the Tents yesterday evening, between the Christian Siriano and Irina Shabayeva shows, the duo looks as though they may have made a wrong turn on their way to Richie Rich's Villionaire runway. That said, the guy did dare wear a faux-guitar tote and she is pulling off that red lipstick, so legit show-goers or not, we doubt the security out front would have asked to see their invites. But then we bet some guards would've loved to double-check her credentials *wink wink, nudge nudge*.
