The lovely thing about the season of Resort/"Cruise" shows is that it has no definite time constraints: it moves slowly, enjoyably, and spreads itself over the globe entire. This year we have seen Resort shows in Kyoto, Paris, Los Angeles, and now New York. Last Tuesday morning I rolled out of a borrowed bunk bed on 34th street at 4:30 am to set out for the Valentino Resort show on Bond street, in quiet Noho. The thrill that made the excruciating call time more than worth it? I was given rings as part of my outfit for the show that spelled out my name, across the knuckles of my right hand. Some girls had slogans like 'Freedom' and 'Make Love,' and as much as I would love to wear a universal, optimistic message like that, something about sporting my own name in metal on my hand as I walked by Anna Wintour and Edward Enninful in the front row of a Valentino show felt, well, pretty damn good. Thank you Patritzia Pilotti for casting me, and Pierpaolo Piccioli for your unique support, I really and truly appreciate it beyond words.
