Every year for the past 3 years we’ve gone and we’ve been disappointed with our squint seats (you have to squint or have a really good camera to see the clothes); with the only thing raising our spirits being the celebrities and models we meet. This year, Doutzen wasn’t here, I didn’t get to yell out ‘Miranda Otto i love you’ (yes, to Miranda Otto) and we sat further back than ever despite booking as early as ever, the seating arrangement was very different due to the ‘one sided’ catwalk, meaning everyone was squished to the other side. I did however get excited about seeing some amazing street style and bump into some bloggers. There were a few ensembles that were memorable, one being the gorgeous girl in the magenta jumpsuit and the other being (possibly dion lee’s girlfriend) wearing a stunning pair of these, blue scuba skirt and a sheer blouse. But I did get to say a quick hello to Lady Melbourne , spoke with Hayley a few times, and sat next to the gorgeous Little Black Book (but couldn’t get any pictures because there were several exits so the ‘wait out the front’ thing didn’t work out so well, and my friends wanted dinner afterwards). Speaking of beautiful people Annika Kaban was strutting her stuff on the catwalk again this year, gosh I love this girl, I wonder why she’s not up there with Abbey Lee, Cat Mac and Skye? She’s just as gorgeous and looks as versatile. She needs a big campaign or cover, fast! Oh and we saw Cassi Van Den Dungen… Boy, was I surprised… I’d never watched ANTM I’ve only seen her pictures from the papers and website that reported on her ‘bogan behaviour’. It took us the whole duration of the show to realise it was indeed her! I think she was picked up by her mum at the end of the show, actually 3 or 4 models were picked up by a parent or guardian, ‘naw cute’! Anyway, even though I’d seen some of the collections -Collette Dinnigan showed in Paris a few weeks ago, Sass and Bide showed in London and last month, Toni Maticevski also showed in NY it was still a good experience. Moreover, I did grow fond of the bi-colour chanel-esque tights, I think they were Lavante, I’ve got to get my hands on some before autumn really hits us!
This year again, I went with my two best friends Lisa and Bianca, who both looked amazing and thanks to Bianca we also got some amazing photos!
We tried out hand at some ‘jakandjil’ style photos. Ha, I think that’s best left to Tommy Ton.
Then we had dinner at one of the overpriced restaurants next to central pier.
