Yesterday was a HOT and SWEATY one here in NYC, but even so, forty top models including Coco Rocha, Jessica White, Hannah Holman, and Lyndsey Scott stormed the Meatpacking District for a photoshoot with fashion photographer Nigel Barker to kick off Nine West’s Runway Relief program. Dressed in adorable t-shirts created and styled just for this event, jean shorts, and Nine West boots equipped with pedometers, the girls put aside their discomfort to take part this fashionable cause. A few even wore leather jackets, and it was over 90 degrees outside! But you’ve got to admit – they looked fantastic. Thanks to the pedometers, the models’ steps can be tracked between fashion show events, and for every mile of steps taken, Nine West is donating money to Fashion Targets Breast Cancer.
The boots pictured here are the limited edition Nine West ‘Modelinia’ Runway Relief boots…cool huh? Pick up a pair of your own now on Nine West’s website for $199.
How excited was I to have the opportunity to meet Coco?! She’s so sweet and charismatic in person, and I seriously envy her super-long legs (btw, I’m wearing heels here and she is not). In case you missed my updates live from the photoshoot yesterday afternoon or couldn’t make it to the set, you can check it out on my Twitter page, Nine West”s Livestream , or Modelinia. Here are a few more photos and video clips from the shoot. I had so much fun, and shot a few great candid photos too:
Stay tuned…soon I’ll be posting an exclusive interview with Nigel Barker!
