CMA Awards 2018
Rick Ross, Jussie Smollett, will.i.am & More Come Out for Hood by Air's Spring Show
Shayne Oliver, the 28-year-old designer behind Hood By Air, has built up quite the stylish celebrity fan club -- and many of them turned up at his spring 2017 runway show Sunday afternoon to show their support.
Naomi Campbell, Jaden Smith and his girlfriend, Sarah Snyder, were among the first to arrive on the scene. EJ Johnson (son of Magic and Rich Kids of Beverly Hills reality star), Juicy J, Empire's Jussie Smollett, model-actress Hari Nef, Whoopi Goldberg, Will.i.am and Teyana Taylor, who has been hot on the scene since her music video debut as the star of Kanye West's "Fade" video at the VMAs, were also spotted front row.
Like HBA's Los Angeles show earlier this summer, the mood was set not by Rihanna (who wore the brand while performing on stage at the VMAs) but a screeching soundtrack that kept showgoers on edge.
Guests were in for quite the treat when the show called "Handkerchief" began — after all, it was sponsored by PornHub. Oliver sold the idea of porn, individualism and attitude with models wearing deconstructed button down shirts, pinstripe jackets and pants, some with bondage-style corsets and straps; peek-a-boo plastic hoodies, pants and garment bags-as-garments; Hustler t-shirts and bi-directional, two-toed pointed boots.
New York Fashion Week takes an interesting turn with Hood By Air's "Handkerchief" runway show sponsored by Pornhub. Yes, really.— Adam Tschorn (@ARTschorn) September 11, 2016
