People who participate in Fashion Week don't just eat regular balanced meals or civilized sit-down dinners. Fashion Week is its own little microcosm of strange foods and bad eating habits. Here are real photos from Fashion Week that prove it.

1. Scallops

They're small, they're low carb, and they're not nearly as pedestrian as shrimps. This is a scallop dish being served at the Standard Hotel during Fashion Week.
