15 Types of People You Always See at Fashion Week

1. The girl just standing around outside the venue, playing with her phone and waiting for someone to take her picture.
She may or may not have a ticket to the actual show.

2. The elementary school kid in the front row.
Her mom is an editor.

3. The intern filling in for the magazine editor who couldn't make it.
She's terrified that at any moment she will be identified as an impostor and told to leave.

4. The person wearing seasonally-inappropriate clothes to attract more street style photographers.
Chiffon in a snowstorm and fur in a heat wave — anything ridiculous, really.

5. The crowd of fashion editors standing outside the show complaining about how tedious fashion week is.
They are just sooooo over it. Until someone asks to take their picture, that is.

6. The middle-aged buyer blocking everyone's view by taking pictures with his or her giant iPad.
Taking pictures with an iPad being the fashion-tech equivalent of reading the large-print edition of Reader's Digest.

7. The tween holding court in the front row with a gaggle of her best frenemies, all of them clad in completely age-inappropriate outfits.
The one in the middle is the designer's daughter and this is her biggest social moment of the year.

8. The tourist asking anyone who will listen how he or she can get tickets to the show.
Not that anyone even acknowledges their existence. FYI, 99% of these shows are invite-only.

9. The VIP client invited by the designers to thank her for spending ridiculous sums of money at their stores.
Her tan is real, but her boobs are definitely fake.

10. The street style photographer with the special edition Fendi bag and the colorful fur camera strap.

She's the street style photographer the other street style photographers take pictures of during the lull between shows.

11. The women in the ridiculously high heels trying to maintain her balance as she crosses the cobblestone streets of the meatpacking district to snag an available cab.
Until someone in flats beats her to it, leaving her stranded in the middle of the street, unsure what to do next.

12. The C-list celebrity, desperate for attention.
She sits there smiling for the camera, hoping no B-list celebrities show up and steal the spotlight.

13. The smug publicist silently orgasming every time he or she utters the words "you're not on the list."
Power is an aphrodisiac, after all, even list-based power with an iPad and a headset.

14. The irrationally angry New Yorker cursing the crowd in front of the show venue for blocking the sidewalk.
Because having to step into the street to get around the waiting editors and photographers is just, like, the worst thing ever.

15. That lady with the bob who's always wearing sunglasses.
Whatever her name is. Ann Something.
