Cardi B Is Everyone’s Favorite New York Fashion Week Front Row Seatmate

New York Fashion Week’s Fall 2018 shows are well under way, and there’s no doubt the front row was teeming with life the first few days of the spectacle. Of course there were the usual suspects—you can’t make it through fashion week in New York without spotting the Hadids and their significant others, or at least a handful of scions milling around town—but there was also a swarm of musicians this season, and naturally, the Fall 2018 shows brought together an eclectic roster of performers. Where else would you find Cardi B seated next to Molly Shannon? (Or Cardi deep in conversation with Anna Wintour?) And whether they performed at New York Fashion Week or just showed up to show off, hip hop and R&B superstars from Kelela to Dev Hynes made appearances, turning fashion week into a musical extravaganza.
