Teyana Taylor’s Sultry Strut
A highlight for showgoers was Teyana Taylor closing the Plein show with a sexy, gyrating strut down the catwalk. Teyana took to Instagram to celebrate her iconic runway moment.
“When the haters tried to say I was too extra yesterday,” said Taylor referring to critics who believed her modeling performance yesterday, while closing the GCDS show, was too animated.
“🤔 I turned around and CLOSED ANOTHER RUNWAY SHOW even more EXTRA!! & I’ma do it AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN cause these b!tches can’t take!!!… #HarlemGirl thank you @philipppleininternational u da shit!!! and @future you killed the live music bro!!! 📹: @imanshumpert”
A Star-Studded Audience
There were almost 2,000 fans and invited guests that never made it into the show venue. Security struggled to maintain order at the entrance of the Hammerstein Ballroom. Many of the crowd outside were fans struggling to see the star-studded audience.
