Last Saturday while the rest of us were dozing in front of our air conditioners, 1,243 Express fans braved the heat to walk a massive runway in Times Square. In an effort to break the previous Guinness World Record, Express set up the largest runway show ever with free t-shirts and the chance to be a "model for a minute." Participants included The Naked Cowboy, members of the NYPD, tourists and locals. Later that night Express held a formal runway show presenting their Holiday 2011 collection in front of thousands of fans and designer Catherine Malandrino. -Alexa Gordon
