ALU at NYFW – Day Three At The Tents

in NY Fashion Week F/W 09
Considering how early our day started, we really shouldn’t have been as energized as Jamie looks in this photo. Maybe it’s lack of sleep causing our giddyness. Maybe it’s that the week is still young. Regardless, we had a great time at the tents yesterday. In addition to our backstage coverage, we spent some time doing a little people watching and celeb stalking. Check out the highlights from day three of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week after the jump!

nyfw, mercedes-benz fashion weekDon’t get me started on this guy. As if the silver lame shirt isn’t enough, he’s also balls to the wall crazy. As Lily Collins approached the tents, we heard his scream, “I GOT IT!” and without missing a beat, “Who was that?” After the uber patient and friendly IMG staffer gave her name, he wandered off only to return five minutes later asking, “What was her name? Nilly? Milly?” He then turned to me asking if any more celebs were coming. Before I could answer, Jamie dragged me off saying, “don’t talk to him!” Enounters of the looney kind. Good times!
