Pretend You Were At The Alexander Wang Spring 2018 Show

With the Kardashians, donuts, a secret shoot and an Ashanti performance, it definitely was a #Wangfest


You already know that Alexander Wang sent his models through the streets of New York City last night. But what happened once Kendall, Bella, and the rest of the Wang Gang decamped for Brooklyn at 10 pm? We'll tell you...

They Were Filming "Keeping Up With the Kardashians

Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner were tailed by several security guards and a camera crew as they stood by a graffiti-covered garage door and cheered for Kendall's final runway appearance of the night. Expect it to be a plot point in the coming season.

Party Hats Were Distributed

Models wore naughty remixes of classic New Year's Eve crowns, with black-and-gold tiaras that spelled out "Party Animal," "Secret Location," and "Wangover." Expect a fast-fashion knockoff of the Stephen Jones originals in 5...4...3...

A Secret Photo Shoot Went Down on the Models' Party Bus

As they zoomed across the bridge from Manhattan to Brooklyn, the Wang Gang had a load of supermodels, a haze of ambient lighting, and already-done hair and makeup. How could they not take pics of everything?

Fishnet Thigh Highs Became a Thing

Because of course they did.

Brooklyn Hipsters Watched the Show From Their Rooftops

#Wangfest happened in Bushwick, an epicenter of emerging artists and creatives in New York City. Accordingly, a lot of post-hipsters (yes, I'm calling them that...) live in the rapidly gentrifying neighborhood. They turned the spectacle into their very own block party, climbing onto adjacent rooftops, sharing six packs, and getting one of the best (and least crowded) views of the show.

There Were Donuts

Dunkin' Donuts on a silver platter, to be exact. And the crowd (including Nicola Peltz, Natasha Poly, and Sofia Richie) sure did love their frosted, glazed party snacks.

Ashanti and Ja Rule Reunited

They teased a new partnership on The Hamilton Mixtape, and at Wangfest they proved it, with 7th grade dance hits like "Say My Name" that the crowd couldn't stop screaming.

Violet Femmes Ruled

It feels like every year at Wang, one model's hair gets totally transformed. This season was Stella Lucia's turn, with a half-pink and half-purple color swap that made her look magical.
