24 Ridiculous Ways Fashion Week People Dealt With The Blizzard

Despite the abysmal weather, nothing at fashion week has been canceled — leaving everyone at the shows in a state of denial about the impending doom. (At least, judging by their shoes.)

1. By wearing fur vests.

2. And fur hats.

3. By wearing a leopard blanket with a fur hood.

4. By not wearing socks.

5. By wearing completely impractical shoes.

6. By putting plastic bags over cameras so that street style photography can still happen.

7. By instagraming selfies that show off a fur coat.

8. By bringing well-heeled children to fashion shows.

9. By having carbs out. Probably mostly for show.

10. By making ironic statements about the hyper-ridiculous state of fashion week street style.

11. By having servants hold an umbrella over their heads.

12. Which is really nice when you're not wearing tights — a common phenomenon.

13. By dressing like this is South Beach.

14. By dressing up their dogs in coats and tiny shoes.

15. By wearing office pants that drag through the snow.

16. By apologizing to the designers of the shoes they will inevitably ruin.

18. By posing in white pants for street style photographers, while the snow blew sideways at like 50 mph into their faces.

19. By instagramming the tractor plowing Lincoln Center, which will keep them all from falling on their faces during this mess.

20. By making jokes about the models.
