The Saturday Night Live comic is always the life of the party and managed to bring that infectious energy to the front row of Christian Siriano's Spring/Summer 2018 show. As supermodel Coco Rocha came down the runway, Jones hilariously cheered her own and in turn, created one of the weekend's most viral moments. You can watch it here


Speaking of Christian Siriano, the inclusive designer had plenty of support in the front rows, thanks to celebs like Vanessa Williams, Jillian Hervey, Danielle Brooks and Cardi B., who gave us X-Men vibes with her Storm-esque hair.

The "Bodak Yellow" rapper also made her way to Rihanna's Fenty Puma show on Sunday (Sept. 10), where she sat front row with boyfriend Offset in a winter jacket from the new line. 

Paul Morigi

On Saturday (Sept. 9), the singer flaunted her fit bod while dancing and posing down the Philipp Plein runway as Future performed. Trust us; you won't be able to stop staring. Watch part of her performance here

The Tome Spring/Summer 2018 presentation included an extremely diverse cast across race, age and body size. The highlight by far was 62-year-old gray-haired model Jo-Ani Johnson, pictured above in red.

This season, the Black designer literally gave her diverse cast of models a voice by having them recite personal spoken word during the presentation.

The Dominican beauty had the honor of closing out the Public School show, which also included a large number of Black models on the runway. Bravo!

On Sunday (Sept. 10), the Black designer presented his Spring/Summer 2018 collection inside NYC's Beacon School, where models were dressed in collegiate-inspired garb. 


On Sunday night (Sept. 10), the hottest ticket in town was to Rihanna's Fenty Puma runway show, where she not only delivered her latest designs, but rode the runway on a BMX bike. Legendary!
