What started out as an innocent question turned into so much more!
Ch-ch-check it out
And of course the Burberry Prorsum runway brought out some of our VERY favorite British blokes and babes!!
Harry Styles once again made an appearance in the front row, and looked his dapper best. The One Direction hottie rocked a suede trenchcoat over a knit sweater and black tee, which he paired with black skinny jeans and black leather shoes!
But our main question is: was Hazza there for the fashion or the fashion models???
His former lady love Cara Delevingne closed out the show, and despite her potential bisexual romance with Michelle Rodriguez, Cara WAS supposedly seen with Mr. Styles at the Taylor Swift concert last week (although close sources tell us he wasn't present, fans are still convinced)…
This is like love triangle upon love triangle madness!!

This past month, the fashion world has been FULL of inspiration!
Instead of perpetuating the idea that models must be abnormally tall and skinny to represent major designers, more and more brands are buying into the idea of marketing directly to the consumer — by recruiting models of ALL shapes and sizes!
And during this year’s New York Fashion Week, history was made when Dr. Danielle Sheypuk, a model who’s been wheelchair-bound since age five due to muscular atrophy, modeled for the Carrie Hammer runway.
Danielle is the FIRST-EVER model in a wheelchair to grace a catwalk at NYFW! Wow!!
The career clinical psychologist and 2012’s Ms. Wheelchair New York talked about the significance of her appearance, saying:
“I feel like the industry has gotten more accepting of diversity but you never hear of a model in a wheelchair and it’s just ludicrous. I would like the whole spectrum of fashion designers to tune in, all the way up to high fashion like Tory Burch, Gucci and Louis Vuitton because, why not? Many of us have successful careers and we have money and we want to spend it and we want to look good.”
And the runway diversity didn't stop at Danielle — in fact, Hammer's ENTIRE runway was made up of "role models" instead of "fashion models"! Dr. Danielle was surrounded by CEOs, entrepreneurs, and a former Miss USA when she made her runway debut.
So why not take that positive sentiment to the runways??
For more of this model’s inspiring words, check out additional excerpts from her outstanding interview…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Cue the heavenly choir!!
Because this might be the most graceful catwalk streaker we’ve ever SEEN!!!
The Prabal Gurung presentation during New York Fashion Week was either fortunately or unfortunately interrupted by a glorious male streaker in a G-string (decorated with googly eyes plus ears and a tongue).
As you can tell from the photo (above), there was nothing awkward or clumsy about the incident. The perpetrator pranced down the catwalk wearing the thong along with bright red socks, black loafers, a coat, and a crown.
A security guard chased after him, but the guard looked pretty enamored by the whole thing himself! Talk about a Saturday soiree.
See some close-ups (below)!

This whole battle for diversity on the runway has opened up a whole new can of beautiful, diverse worms!
The latest designer to do so was Donna Karan (one of the designers specifically called out by Naomi Campbell's Diversity Coalition for using un-diverse models) during her DKNY show at New York Fashion Week on Sunday.
She pulled from BOTH her normal model pool AND from “real people” when it came to selecting catwalkers for her Fall 2014 runway!
The show started with a video talking about the backgrounds of the models, and also was accompanied by a written program that listed off occupations like “night life hostess” and “tattoo artist/ pro skateboarder”.
But Karan had her own reasons, aside from diversity, to switch up her runway peeps!
The designer explained:
We luurrvvee seeing all these well-known TV characters on the runway!!
True Blood’s Rutina Wesley and Orange Is The New Black’s Taryn Manning were two MORE television actresses who hit the runway to display Go Red For Women’s The Heart Truth red dress collection during New York Fashion Week.
And not surprisingly, both ladies looked ravishing in the color of the day!
Rutina strutted around in a chevron Max Azria gown that fit her flawlessly, while Taryn sported a simpler yet equally flattering Carmen Marc Valvo dress with a belted waist.
Tara Thornton and Pennsatucky clean up well!!

Victoria’s Secret Angels can take over the runway any time they want!
Erin sported a playful look consisting of a black and blue frock with a lace neckline, which was styled with a curly bob and cobalt blue peep-toe platforms.
Candice, on the other hand, flirted up a storm in her patterned gold top and mini skirt, while her shiny blonde tresses were tied up in a low-key ponytail.
Of course, both ladies also rocked a couple other looks, but these two were our faves!
Ch-ch-check out the gallery (below) for all their runway ensems!

This Real Housewives star made a beautiful runway transformation!
We're loving the off-the-shoulder detailing and drapery, which is perfect for a sassy female like NeNe.
