Fashion Week

#TBT to FLARE's Coverage of #NYFW Circa 1995

FLARE was there back in 1995 with Kate, Johnny and Linda


Here’s a blast from March 1995 and FLARE’s Letter From New York written by former editor in chief (at the time beauty, health and fitness editor) Suzanne Boyd. And, oh, how things have changed. Rosie O’Donnell is hanging with Madonna. Johnny Depp arrives late to watch girlfriend Kate Moss walk the runway at Marc Jacobs. Linda Evangelista (in a mid-length blonde phase) is still steady with actor Kyle MacLachlan. And the models of the moment are bad-girl Kristen McMenamy, Carla Bruni, Canadian Tricia Helfer, Bridget Hall and RuPaul. As for the fashion, “all the girls are wearing red or white high heels with black hobbles, touches of python, skinny little belts with twinsets, satin slips to the knee.” That said, some things never change: Anna Wintour is in Chanel and fashion week is exhaustion and mayhem.
