Fashion Week is in full swing these days and world’s most appreciated designers, models, trend followers, bloggers and wannabes anything are there. Are you?
Lauren Hutton isn’t. The 70year-old model and actress attended a glamorous celebration hosted by Carine Roitfeld: Harper’s Bazaar ‘Icons’ party this Friday, September 5th 2014. However, although in New York (the said cocktail gala took place at the Plaza Hotel in NY), Lauren keeps away from the Fashion Week tents & fancy crowds. The answer, as coming from the model herself:
Lauren has been on the cover of Vogue more times than we have fingers and toes to count on (a whopping total of 41!) and enjoyed a really longstanding relationship with fashion still active in 2014 so that makes her a style authority. Someone who lacks real style substance would never be relevant even after 4 decades in the restless fashion industry. As a part of the Carine Roitfeld-edited Harper’s Bazaar 50th anniversary issue, a global deal published internationally in all HB editions along many other models, Lauren Hutton honored the party and spoke her mind, as she does always.
However, much to everyone’s surprise, Lauren is far from being excited with the Fashion Week and the perspective of new fashion trends being launched. Actually, she was quite the opposite: annoyed by ‘new trends’ and ‘new fashions’. An attitude we couldn’t do better but applaud and encourage!
‘The fashion trend of fashion being so important – that’s really hilarious. […] Remember when French pills started wearing those giant ships on their heads and those pearls and those wigs and all that s#it? We’re going to be having our own version of that very soon.’ Lauren Hutton declared in a quick interview at the Harper’s Bazaar event
