Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week S/S 2012 – Celeb Spotting! Kim Kardashian
My first #MBFW post featured images from the Rachel Roy presentation. In that post, I alluded to how fortunate I was to get to that presentation early. This is why. The media was allowed on the balcony early in order to get their photos/interviews/etc before it was open to everyone else. I got up there, banged out my photos, and immediately began to head back across the plaza to the Lincoln Center tents for my next show. As I was walking across the plaza and admiring my photos, I began to see a small group of photographers rush over toward this small group of people. “Who is that?,” I wondered. As I got closer, I realized. “Holy shit, that’s Kim Kardashian!” I raced over and took as many photos as I could, as Kim moved swiftly across the plaza.
Following that extremely hectic 30-45 seconds, I relaxed briefly. I tried to gather my thoughts. I would have never thought I’d ever be in a position to photograph Kim Kardashian. As I stood there, one of the other photographers came up to me. I expected her to be as excited about what had just happened as I was. She said to me in what sounded like an Italian accent, “So… who was that?” Then she took out a notepad. “Can you spell her name for me?” I guess celebrity is subjective.
