Backstage at Tommy Hilfiger Fashion Week

So, I didn’t have entrance to the actual Tommy Hilfiger show… but I did have backstage access.  It didn’t really phase me any, the Tommy Hilfiger brand is not my style.  However,  I give much respect to him.  He seems like a really nice guy, and from my understanding he always closes Fashion Week out.  So, while the show took place, I chilled near the open bar partaking in the libations being served while watching the live show on the jumbo-tron.

This is a picture of the open bar station.  They were in the process of closing it down as the Tommy Hilfiger show took place.  No worries bubbly was being served backstage.

So, while I am the hallway preparing to go backstage, guess who I bumped into??!!!  Anna Wintour!!!!  My damn camera couldn’t catch her fast enough… but if you check back I will have another pic of my encounter posted.  What I can say is she looked me in the eye and I turned to stone! lollll

Here are some of my favorites from the show…

Note: Ok I found the dude to be mildly attractive lolll
