Darlings, it’s after 2 AM and I have to get up before noon for a change, so I don’t have time to tell you all that happened to me last night. Here’s the short version:
I got an awesome new Francis by Christian Francis Roth piece that I’m calling the “Erica Jong dress.” (Christian’s name suggestion is “The Zipless Frock.”)
I met designer Phillip Lim.
I saw a crazy drunk girl throw up on a nice blogger in the front row of a fashion show. (No pictures. You should thank me for that.)
I saw a model faint on the runway in the same show. At first we thought she was just falling out of her shoe, but she kept wobbling and the model next to her had to half-carry her backstage.
I met a bunch of cool people.
I read Market Publique’s blog post on the IFB party and a bunch of lies my stylist, Prunella Jones, made up about me.
The Erica Jong! you are fabulous, well-read and a first-class cusser, Wendy B!
BTW anti spam word is OSSIE – how perfect is that?
Yuck! Vomming models!
You’re the only person that makes me sad that I missed going to NYFW. LOL
And Prunella is FUCKING HILARIOUS!!!!!
Miss J. says
I love the you capture all the wacko side of the fashion show! I’m sure the model only had a teaspoon of water for breakfast that’s why she fainted. Poor girl. Your stylist is…errmmm..hmmm…very interesting. The parrot can be the next big thing in fashion!
Lenya Jones says
Someone threw up at a show????? Back in my days of NYFW they wouldn’t let you in if you were drunk. That’s what the door bitches are there for.
Couture Cookie says
Sounds like an eventful evening… I’m anxious to hear the rest as well! 😀
I’m just glad it’s the Erica Jong dress but you’re wearing it instead of her! Your wonderful adventures continue. That poor model must have forgotten to eat her dinner of one blueberry and water with lemon! I’m off to read the lies about you and make up some of my own.
The dress is soo cool.
Make Do Style says
Looks good and thanks for sparing us!
deja pseu says
Wow, barf and fainting models? Good times!!
LOL @ the Erica J. reference!!! Very cool dress and looks fabulous on you as always. Did Phillip L. fall at your feet and beg you to take over his website?
miss sophie says
ok the fainting model makes me sad. as much as people like to gawk at the spectacle of models falling on the runway and snarking at how skinny they all are, it IS a disturbingly *dangerous* industry. sigh.
but your erica jong dress looks specatcular! jealous you met the esteemed mr lim.
That dress is fantastic and your name for it is HILARIOUS! I followed your tweets last night with amusement.
What a NIGHT!
Prunella is hilarious! Wonder if that model ate today? ummm I mean yesterday.
char C. says
omg i’m so jealous you had a picture taken with Mr. Lim himself!! and wish i could have met you in person at the IFB Dress Up Soiree! next time 🙂
belle de ville says
“Erica Jong dress”…brilliant.
For once, I’ll say “I’m glad I *wasn’t* there!” Usually I wish I had nights out like yours, but I make it my policy to eschew vomiting.
You look brilliant in that zipper dress. Jong would be proud.
Sharon Rose says
Hi there-thats a stunning dress, adore the back detail!! Have a great weekend!
beautiful dress lady. love the silver dress in the previous post. you look fabulous as usual.
Alice Olive says
You met Phillip Lim?!! OMG, may I touch you?! (Meant in a totally appropriate female gushing about a fav designer way, naturally.)
I like that dress. Does the zipper really work? If so, I may have to borrow it sometime.
And lies? Really Wendy, you wound me. After 231 years of friendship this is how you treat me? I mean, I kept my mouth shut about the fact that you have more tattoos than Angelina Jolie and Megan Fox combined which you keep hidden with makeup, didn’t I?
It’s the Zipless Frock!
Prunella, I’ve decided to come out of the closet about my Maori facial tattoos. So WHAT if I look like Harvey Keitel in The Piano? I think he’s a very attractive gentleman.
Midtown Girl says
Spamword – MadQueen. Of which best describes that blinged out pic courtesy of Prunella. LOVE IT.
What a crazy time you had last night – only in NY darling. XOXO
Hi Wendy! What a back…yours and the dress’s zip print!
You are high-larious!
1. Lick it up= a reference to the barf? I HOPE not.
2. That bitch needs to eat a damn cracker. Fainting comes from not eating
3. Did you know that Philip was Paul Frank’s first sportswear designer? My hubby casually mentioned it one day like, “oh ya. I worked with that guy- he was our designer” haha
OH CRAP! AND
4. Loooove your dress!
Sounds like a wonderful and quite eventful time 😛 …. you look STUNNING!!!!!
You liar! You told me you had button desire and I see you are wearing a zipper themed dress. Zipper fever is entirely different!!one!!
Also I am glad to know that college parties and fashion runways aren’t too much different. Lots of photos, people fainting, some chick vomiting onto someone respectable.
I’m working on a similar dress design but the back is a huge Pilgrim shoe buckle.
I was dying over your tweets last night!
I knew that dress was made for you the moment I first saw it!
You look absolutely stunning in that first pic!! I love the dress & those amazing stilettos!!!
P.S: Thanks so much for all the comments you have left on my blog! I really appreciate them and hope that you will continue to visit and drop by comments.
La Belette Rouge says
You are a literary lovely. I hope Erica sees this dress. She would go mad for it!!!
Couture Carrie says
LOVE the Heathers reference in your post title, WB!
And talk about a fabulous exposed zipper!
You are such a rockstar 🙂
The Little Fashion Treasury says
“The Zipless Frock” dress looks fabulous on you!!!!
The oversized printed zipper is… more than show-stopping 😉
Every Body Says Don't says
That dress is AWESOME, as is the photo of you with Philip Lim! Wow! What a night! x
Market Publique says
LOVE the dress!
If that is the abbreviated version of the night, I’d love to hear the whole story!
Market Publique says
LOVE the dress!! And thank you for the shout out, had so much fun with you on Monday!!
Miss Janey says
Evidently WendyB has two right hands… No wonder she’s such a fierce bitch. She can make a bitch a necklace, den choke a bitch wid it.
Miss J remembers when she was a model and fainted on the runway. She hadn’t eaten in fourteen weeks… No nice model helped her off-stage though. Some skinny bitch just rolled her off the stage and on went the show. Hey, that’s showbiz.
you look beautiful!! your dress is amazing!!
sounds like you had a great time!!
Wendy B!! you have a beyond fabulousssss life!! lets see last night I ironed my teenagers shirt for back to school pictures, got my four olds clothes ready for first day of school…oh sorry I just dozed off from boredom.. 🙂 btw. I wore the skirt to an appt. today and even though it was big it looked great, made me look thinner because it was hanging on me!!
keep me updated on whats new with francis
She probably fainted from not eating enough! Those girls are about 15-20 pounds underweight.
I like that dress! You look zippy in it. Sorry that was dumb!
Sounds like a hell of a day! Love that dress on you and I love Philip Lim!
Annie Spandex says
I love the zipper dress! What a fun play on the exposed zipper. SO great!
heathers is one of my all time fave. you and LIM – of course you steal the who. GLAM fabulous baby!! <3
What an eventful night and what an amazing dress!
