Eric Wilson’s Front Row Diary: Ooh La La! #PFW Kicks Off With More Naked Backsides Than a Burlesque ClubFeb 26, 2014 @ 12:47 pm
Late Tuesday night, Natalia Vodianova was standing at the edge of a round stage under the grand dome of the Bourse de commerce in Paris, surrounded by photographers who actually seemed more eager to take her picture than those of the models in scandalously skimpy lingerie who had just completed a nearly 30-minute runway routine set to live performances by Eve, Azealia Banks, Massive Attack, and some hyper-French DJs. Vodianova was hosting the show as a muse and part-time designer for Etam, a French lingerie brand that butted onto the opening night of the Paris collections. I mean that literally. There were so many naked ones, you would have thought it was the Crazy Horse.
