Scooping front row seats at The Blonds fashion show is like skipping the line at the hottest nightclub, everybody wants in, but only a few get in. Guess who was able to hang out backstage and sat front row with all the VIP’s during their Fall 2018 show last week in New York? THIS GUY!

That’s right, thanks to Preciosa Crystal – which for the 7th season provided thousands of multi-faceted crystals to adorn the stunning pieces. The guys had me over backstage to admire their expertise in crystal craftsmanship and glassmaking tradition.

The scene, was nothing but fabulous – Watching rising drag superstar, Desmond is Amazing shinning his light and admiring the classical beauty of the legendary style icon and heiress Daphne Guinness, was sort of surreal.

For the show, the design duo behind The Blonds – David and Phillipe Blond drew inspiration from the constant struggle between good and evil, delivering a collection that was dangerously hot! – While the silhouettes might not have been anything new, the Preciosa crystals added a lot of sparkles. Although, I must say, the long fringe seen in some pieces was an edgy twist.

By the way, the show started an hour late, but I mean it’s THE BLONDS! – So it’s all good. Lil Kim made a grand entrance by arriving from behind the catwalk. While we anxiously waited for the show to start, they played a couple of her songs, and that’s when the crowd went wild.

Finally, the room went dark while strobe lights pulsed to the rhythm of the music. Leading the show, Phillipe Blond in a red crystal-covered bodysuit, completed with devil horns, choker and custom Louboutin boots. Can I borrow that for Halloween?

Daphne Guinness closed down the runway, strutting in her shining power suit, signature hairstyle and performing “Riot,” a new song from her upcoming album, Daphne & The Golden Chord.
