Sam Ronson, Charlotte’s sister, is famous all on her own for her skills with a turntable. Her best move? When a model with hot pink hair emerged from the backdrop, she made the seats shake with The Strokes’ first single from their new album. The song, “Under Cover of Darkness,” was released February 9th.

And then there are the bloggers.

Yes, bloggers. Bryan Boy, who splits his time between New York and the Philippines, found himself with front row tickets to multiple shows, including Charlotte Ronson’s. His neon lime green fedora and matching fluorescent lime green fur anklets may have been photographed as frequently as what was actually on the runway.

The sponsors were equally flashy. To promote the new Pepsi Slim, Pepsi built a bar in the middle of The Tents to hand out samples and erected seven-foot aluminum high heeled shoes around the courtyard to amuse anyone waiting in lines.
