How sad!

Club fixture and style icon Zelda Kaplan died while sitting front row at Joanna Mastroianni's fall fashion show on Wednesday.

According to those who attended the Lincoln Center show, the 95 year old slumped over right as the second model walked down the runway. A witness added:

"Zelda passed away, right there, in the front row. Security carried her out, but the show just carried on. Everybody is distraught."

Paramedics performed CPR on Kaplan and rushed her to the hospital, but it was too late to revive her.

Zelda's close friend and designer Richie Rich said:

"Passing away in the front row was how it was meant to be. Zelda loves fashion, so she died for fashion. She would have wanted to go out in style. Zelda always said, ‘Live, live, live and have fun’ . . . I hope the angels are holding her right now."

Our thoughts go out to Zelda's friends and family during this difficult time.
