The End of the World (or at Least the Seating Chart) as We Know It
Last September, the delicate microcosm that is a fashion show imploded. Formerly front-row guests found themselves shuffled to row two (or worse), while heretofore uninvited attendees (read: bloggers) claimed the ringside seats. The inevitable backlash came when Tavi wore a gallon-sized bow hat in the front row of the Christian Dior Haute Couture show in January. The chapeau in question (a personal gift from Stephen Jones, naturally) and the resulting disgruntlement elicited this response on Tavi's Style Rookie blog: "Dudes, it is a HAT. And I'm SHORT. So watching the show behind me would be like watching it through a regular-sized adult, but better, because adult heads do not have holes in them." Point taken.
