Models in NYC have long since been a staple of the city’s nightlife. Being seen stepping out of a trendy hotspot in the Meatpacking District and caught by a photographer’s flashbulb has been a right of passage for many a fledgling model in the Big Apple. Going back to the days of Studio 54, just to be seen adjacent to someplace that was hip meant you were somebody.
Fast-forward to 2017 where fashion has slunk into a more comfortable pose. With the hipster onslaught and throwback grunge-wear, the fashionable ones have a more relaxed approach to their nocturnal activities.
In the city that never sleeps (and doesn’t bat an eyelash very often,) even a cake grabbing a late night slice won’t raise an eyebrow. This 6-tier beauty makes wearing white fondant after Labor Day a statement to mimic, (just like a certain A-list actress seen at this year’s Telluride Film Festival.) A flower cascade draped casually across the stacked bodice makes for a touch of glamour amongst the gritty tiles, while the hint of blue viburnum and black-centered anemones are a nod to the turning season when summer pastels make way for the jewel-tones and darker hues of the winter months.
With over 8 million inhabitants in this city, late night hook-ups are never hard to come by, especially one with such a sweet potential. The photo crasher, who asked to remain nameless to avoid a Page 6 mention, seems to have fallen head over heels for our Confectionary Couture. Can you blame him?
