Never judge a book by its cover, nor a long-legged, couture-clad model. If there’s one thing that struck me in all my seasons of backstage coverage, it is the formidable amount of books that circulate behind the scenes of fashion shows. Tolstoi is never far away during hair & make-up, Rachel Watson boards her paranoid train over and over again during the endless wait for fittings and the occasional poet even gets a say while blowdryers are screeching.
