Caroline Trentini: Every time Caroline gets on a runway it’s a moment, but last year, besides a Bottega Veneta walk, she largely avoided the fuss of fashion shows––That is, until she decided to string together some strolls down high profile runways like Tom Ford, Brandon Maxwell and Michael Kors for NYFW F/W 19. Let’s see which city this icon graces next.
Ugbad Abdi: The 18-year-old Somalian refugee, flew in from Iowa for the first time last summer and has been getting traction amongst the fashion elite. First Valentino couture, then Anna Sui now an opening slot at Marc Jacobs and Another Magazine editorial shot by Tyler Mitchell.
Christy Turlington: A Christy-sighting on the runway only comes every, well 20 years, so seeing the legend close the closing Marc Jacob’s F/W 19 show had us do a double take. Maybe it had something to do with the designer recently revisiting his infamous grunge collection which Turlington also walked in 1993.

About tonight! OMG @themarcjacobs invited me to close his beautiful show tonight and I couldn’t resist. A. I have known and loved this man since I met him at age 16. B. I turned 50 this year and have arrived at a place where “Why the F not” is the answer that comes up when I ask myself questions. C. I have a 15 year old daughter who I desperately want to see and hear me and this is a medium that “speaks”to her. So, thank you’s are in order, @karliekloss @gigihadid and @kaiagerber and all the lovely young women I have met briefly in the recent past or met tonight. You are ALL women I would want my daughter to emulate in your grace, confidence and elegance. Always reassuring to have @guidopalau @diane.kendal @stephenjonesmillinery and @kegrand encouraging you on and making you look and feel your best. And while that muscle did not hurt as much as I would have thought to exercise again, after 20 plus years, I am not certain I could beat the experience of tonight or wish to try! Now I can say exactly when and for whom I last walked a runway and feel so proud of all the forces of nature who made it possible! 😘@1.800.newbold & Congratulations for all of the amazing people who put shows like this together. I am in awe of the efforts I was able to witness firsthand and truly appreciate from a new perspective over the last couple of days all the effort that goes in. Bravo!
Lindsey Wixson: The most famous tooth gap in fashion also magically reappeared (or by request of Katie Grand) on the Marc Jacobs runway after intermittingly recessing to get in touch with her own creative side.
