If there is one thing you can count on each September, it's that Alexander Wang will throw the biggest and best fashion week bash. Last season saw a junk-food fueled rager, complete with a fully stocked 7-Eleven and a McDonald's pop-up dishing out McGriddles and cheeseburgers, with performances by CL, Tyga, Desiigner, and Travis Scott. The year before, Wang constructed his very own strip club, catered by Hooters. Past years have included surprise performances by Nicki Minaj, a large-scale frat party, and the complete takeover of a Mobil gas station. No traditional cocktail parties here. For his Spring 2017 campaign, Wang decided to keep the party going, enlisting the members of his Wang Squad, including Anna Ewers, Binx Walton, Hanne Gaby Odiele, and Adwoa Aboah, to show off the new collection while having a wild night out—and slightly disheveled next morning. Also along for the ride: R.Kelly, Die Antwood frontman, Ninja, and Zoë Kravitz. (He'll show his Fall 2017 collection on Saturday here in New York at Broadway and 146th for a "standing room only" crowd.) Here, alongside exclusive images and video from the campaign, Kravitz shares what really goes on behind the scenes at an Alexander Wang photoshoot, along with her biggest party dos and don'ts.
__What goes on behind the scenes at an Alexander Wang campaign shoot? __
It was shot in the afternoon into the evening, and had a very relaxed, D.I.Y. vibe. There was a lot of laughing, a lot of dancing, and secretly eating Thai food that we ordered.
__ Which co-star is the most fun on set?__
Adwoa is always fun, and Ninja is a killer dancer.
__What is the best Wang afterparty you’ve ever been to? __
This one [for the campaign]. R.Kelly performed. Duh.
