SELF-REFERENTIAL SOUNDTRACKS: You can’t blame an entrepreneurial superstar for trying to get the most promotional mileage out of her fashion show. Jennifer Lopez blasted her new single, “Hold It Don’t Drop It,” over the sound system as her spring collection went down the catwalk, while hubby Marc Anthony sang along from his front-row seat.
Elsewhere, designers’ playlists gave musical shout-outs to their rocker pals in the crowd. Rihanna strutted down the Dsquared runway to the sound of her own voice singing “Shut Up and Drive.” And when the lights went up on the Dior by John Galliano show, Sting’s “An Englishman in New York” boomed, much to the delight of the Englishman himself, poised in the front row with wife Trudie Styler.
Steve Aoki held a presentation, a runway show and outdoor concert for his men's line Dim Mak. Here's a look from his spring 2018 collection, which was titled "Paradise Found." #wwdfashion #wwdmens (📷: George Chinsee)
"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
