New York Fashion Week — if you can even believe it — is over. The catwalks, the parties, the glitz and glamour: They will once again be folded up and tucked away until February, after which the memory will shimmer around us like bubbles effervescence from a Champagne bottle.
But of course, it was not all dreamscapes and wonderment.
While this fall’s NYFW brought us everything from auspicious Aubrena sightings to leopard-print Nicki, there were simply some sights that we cannot unsee. The terrifying, the hand-to-heart gasp-worthy, the woefully unfortunate and nightmarish. And if we ever want to remember the other side of Fashion Week — the hell we’ve survived — celebrities on Instagram were there to catch every horrific, exhausting moment.
