If only all models were as sure on their feet as Shalom Harlow, who stormed up and down a 70-foot runway on killer heels more than 100 times for Viktor & Rolf’s first online fashion show. “It was like the fashion Olympics for her,” said Rolf Snoeren, who, with Viktor Horsting, makes up one of fashion’s most theatrical duos. “We gave her a gold medal.”
The seven-minute film features Harlow filmed from five angles— in a high-tech version of Funny Face, which was the theme of the collection. (In shades of Audrey Hepburn, Harlow arrives breathlessly at the beginning of the video, panting, “I’m terribly late for the show.”) But it was only when editors arrived at the showroom in Paris to see the actual clothes that they fully appreciated Harlow’s feat: One of the dresses, paved in Swarovski crystals, weighed more than 30 pounds. The slick production featured original music by Diederik Idenburg and required a crew of 50 people at a studio in Amsterdam working 14-hour days.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
