After a week of some of the biggest brands, designers, and celebrities all showing out for New York Fashion Week Spring 2018, it's now time to take a look back at some highlights. During a time when many people are questioning the importance of New York Fashion Week in comparison to its European counterparts, designers delivered some signature moments to lighten the discrediting of the festivities, even if only briefly. Brands like Helmut Lang, Opening Ceremony, Kith, Fenty Puma by Rihanna, and Alexander Wang all brought their own signature aesthetic to their respective shows. Here is a recap of some of the most entertaining shows from New York Fashion Week.
Some of the biggest celebrity cameos of the week came at Ronnie Fieg's Kith Sport show. The designer's second fashion show took place on Thursday night at the Classic Car Club Manhattan, where he showed off upcoming collections with brands like Moncler, Adidas Soccer, Champion, Iceberg, and Nike. Virgil Abloh, Scott Disick, and Carmelo Anthony were among the crowd, but two of the most memorable guests appeared on the runway. First, NBA Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen walked down the catwalk sporting pieces from Fieg's upcoming Nike collaboration. If that wasn't enough, Fieg decided to close out the show by putting a spotlight (literally) onto arguably the best basketball player in the world, LeBron James, who lip-synched the lyrics to Kanye West and Jay Z's “H.A.M.”
This past Saturday night, Alexander Wang took to Brooklyn to celebrate #WangFest. The mobile show included the likes of Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner stepping out of an Alexander Wang tour bus before strutting down the Brooklyn streets. Their looks, complete with party style hats that read “WangFest,” further alluded to the show's party atmosphere. Notable attendants included Kim Kardashian West and Kris Jenner, amongst others. Of course, the after party that Wang has become known for did not disappoint either. Cardi B and Ja Rule hit the stage to perform, and Dunkin Donuts, Dominos, and Budweiser took care of the food and drinks for the affair.
Sunday night brought about even more festivities with Rihanna showing off her motocross and surf-inspired Spring 2018 Fenty line at the Park Avenue Armory. This was Rihanna's return to New York after her last two collections were debuted in Paris. Staying true to the theme, dirt bike riders tricked off of ramps over pink sand mountains to start the show. RiRi also took her bow on the back of a motorbike. The show boasted a star-studded front row that included Cardi B, Offset, Big Sean, and Jhené Aiko, to name a few.
Opening Ceremony decided to show off its Spring 2018 collection a little differently as well. Humberto Leon and Carol Lim debuted their collection using a dance performance titled “Changers,” which was written and directed by Spike Jonze. The collection itself featured plays on the collegiate wardrobe like varsity jackets, club T-shirts, sweatpants, and flannel shirts.
On Monday, Shane Oliver debuted his first collection for Helmut Lang at Pearl River Mart. The collection heavily referenced Lang's archive with a lot of pieces featuring fetish design, and leather accents as an added twist from Oliver. The former Hood By Air designer also included memorable head-turners—like an oversized bra that converts into a bag—in his collection. The ready-to-wear featured a line of Helmut Lang tour merch that featured red and white “HELMUT” branding throughout. ASAP Ferg, Ian Connor, Lil Yachty, Jerry Lorenzo, and more were among those who sat front row.

A woman who previously made headlines for illegally entering Drake's home and enjoying some Sprite was reportedly arrested Thursday morning. The 24-year-old individual returned to Drake's Hidden Hills estate and told security staff that she was “on the list,” TMZ reported Friday. When the list claims didn't go as she planned, the woman refused to vacate the premises.
Police sources told TMZ that the woman gifted three deputies with hurled saliva upon their arrival, resulting in the use of pepper spray. Ultimately, the woman was arrested on trespassing and assault on a police officer charges. According to the report, Drake wasn't on the property at the time of the incident.
Back in April, the same woman was busted by a member of Drake's team for a separate incident involving similarly illegal entry. She was discovered in one of the Hidden Hills home's bedrooms, wearing an article of clothing from Drake's wardrobe and claiming she had been given permission to enter the residence. According to TMZ's initial report, the woman was arrested and charged with felony burglary after confessing to snatching up some Sprite, Pepsi, and delicious Fiji water from the home stash. Drake later contacted the authorities and reportedly told them he wasn't interested in pursuing prosecution, instead asking that they give the woman a break.
Hidden Hills was previously hit with a highly publicized break-in back in May. Noted comedy actor Scott Disick's home was “burglarized and ransacked” while he was in Las Vegas for a birthday event, according to reports. A silent burglar alarm was triggered during the incident, but no leads were pinned down. The break-in is believed to have been an inside job.

Bella Thorne was spotted partying it up with Scott Disick till the wee hours of the morning.
“I'm not a businessman—I'm a business, man,” goes one of Jay Z's most famous punchlines. And it's certainly true that Hov's business acumen has been a cornerstone of his public persona for many, many years, arguably dating back to the mafioso-rap days of Reasonable Doubt.
But a closer look at many of Jay's business maneuvers, particularly his endorsement deals, shows a strange pattern. Almost without exception, Jay will align himself with the company that is number two or three in the marketplace, and rarely the leader.
Once you notice this trend, you begin to see it all over the place. Jay's early-aughts sneaker deal was with Reebok, not Nike. When he teamed with a search engine for the release of Decoded, it was Microsoft's Bing, not Google. When he bought 1/15th of one percent of an NBA team in New York City, it was the Nets and not the Knicks (yes, he's from Brooklyn, but still). When he hooked up smartphone users with his new album, it was Samsung holders and not people with iPhones. When he wanted to increase awareness of The Blueprint 3 via a subscription-based music service, it was Rhapsody (remember them?) and not Spotify or Pandora. When he invested in a video-sharing app in 2012, it was the now-all-but-deceased Viddy, as opposed to Instagram.
Almost without exception, Jay will align himself with the company that is number two or three in the marketplace, and rarely the leader.
In fact, arguably the only leading companies Hov has joined forces with are Hewlett-Packard, who have been running neck-and-neck with Lenovo for first place in global market share in personal computers for the past several years; and Duracell.
For someone as careful and calculating as Jay Z to consistently behave like this, there must be a good reason. While we can't be certain about the motives behind Jay's moves (Hov, if you're reading this, call us), there are some huge advantages to his behavior.
Zack O'Malley Greenburg, Senior Entertainment Editor at Forbes, is the author of Empire State of Mind: How Jay-Z Went From Street Corner to Corner Office, a business biography of the rap titan. He pointed out that Jay's strategy is a win-win for both rapper and what Greenburg euphemistically refers to as “underdog brands.”
“Jay Z often does deals with underdog brands because they have more ground to gain from a connection with him,” he told Complex. “And in some cases, there may not be a deal on the table with the industry leader.”
“I don't know that he could have gotten necessarily a stake in the Knicks, or at least couldn't have done it as easily or on as favorable terms as he did with the Nets,” he continued. “I would think the same thing goes for some of the other deals when you look at it down the line. I think it speaks to the goal, which is to use his cool points and employ them to boost a brand that could use some boosting.”
Those “cool points” are often directly translatable into dollar signs. In the Nets deal, for example, he was able to turn a $1 million investment into a 135 percent return, and to garner a heavy association with the Nets and their Barclays Center arena, thereby gaining incalculable free advertising. Hov opened up the arena with a string of concerts in 2012, and continues to be associated with the venue, even though he has long since sold his stake of one-fifth of one percent.
And being associated with second-tier companies has not proven to saddle Jay with any long-term negative associations.
“Even if he associates with a second-tier brand, it doesn't tarnish his image so much as it gets people saying, 'Oh, there's Jay, he got a good deal. There he is making savvy business moves again,'” Greenburg explained. “In some ways, because of that business focus that he's always had throughout his career and that he's done a very good job of publicizing, he's seen more as a dealmaker than a sellout.”
