Fresh off the heels of her performance at the 2018 ESSENCE Street Style Block Party, Taylor, along with Paris Hilton, was the featured supermodel in Namilia’s show for New York Fashion Week. Closing out the show, Taylor hit the runway draped in larger-than-life angel wings, the brand’s signature wide-leg pants and a black top. In the crowd, we spotted Victor Cruz and Karrueche Tran seated front row. (Tran was also wearing a look from the brand.) Another major highlight was that half of the models in the show were women of color.
Speaking about her moment on the catwalk, Taylor says she “went from being a big fan and supporter of the brand to closing the Namilla show…. Grand opening, grand closing. Won’t he do it?”
