Fashion Week: At Jason Wu, Kerry Washington talks B'way, models perform amazing feats
Models usually have to strut down the runway in sky-high heels and make it look like they’re strolling down the street in Converse. But we were extra-impressed by the ladies at the Jason Wu show who somehow managed to walk a slippery glass catwalk flawlessly (except for one, who took a spill).
Wu, who designed Michelle Obama’s stark-white inaugural ball gown, held his show at the beautiful St. Regis, and appropriately, he had a stunning runway that also looked incredibly dangerous. Even before the show started, a female guest tripped over her heels and took a scary-looking fall. Plus, pieces broke off and had to be replaced! But somehow, the gorgeous models (well, except for that one) looked like they were stomping down a sidewalk.
Also looking lovely? Actress Kerry Washinton, who sat front-row next to a super-skinny Amanda Peet.
Kerry, who smiled from ear to ear at the mere mention of Wu’s name, expanded her grin even further when discussing her upcoming Broadway debut in a new David Mamet play, “Race,” in November.
“I’m a New Yorker, so I’ really excited to be moving back home,” the Bronx native said. “I wanted to be on Broadway before I ever wanted to be in a movie. And David Mamet’s a genus. And I get to play a sexy lawyer on Broadway.”
Sounds like a dream come true to us.
