Bella Hadid, Irina Shayk & Naomi Campbell Takeover Times Square Broadway

“It’s time for a new approach for a new era.”

New York Fashion Week is back and some of the most sought-after supermodels Bella Hadid, Irina Shayk, and Naomi Campbell were seen strutting down New York City’s famous Broadway, just outside the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre.

Getting around Covid restrictions, the supermodels swapped the catwalk for the pavement to reveal Michael Kors’ latest collection. Both the models and the designer had a successful show after the designer’s break from NYFW, which was scheduled to go down in September last year.

Painting the town red, Bella Hadid, 24, wore a red ribbed mini dress, a red PVC jacket, and matching heels, leading a line of models along the famous street.

She then changed into a shimmery silver head-to-toe ensemble, making a stunning style statement. Wearing a silver mini dress under an oversized white jacket, Bella’s ensemble made heads turn.

Next up was British star Naomi Campbell who drew attention in a floor-length glittering black gown with a long coat draped over her shoulders. Her mane was left open. Campbell stole the show with her towering personality and smokey eyes.

Joining the two supermodels was Irina Shayk, 35, who wore a grey sparkly number with a defining waist line and calf-length boots.

After the show, the models were all pictured linking arms with designer Kors who was wearing a face mask.

The new era of fashion shows

While the show has made its mark by taking over Times Square, it’s been a refreshing change to observe designers ditching the regular runways for creative twists. The most recent one was observed at the Spring 2021 collection for Mugler where Bella Hadid was tasked to push her boundaries. And before that, Bella was joined by her sister Gigi Hadid, as they walked for Versace’s AW21 show for Milan Fashion Week. The virtual fashion show had a massive set with a labyrinth-like design.

With the onset of the global pandemic, while designers chose to take the fashion shows virtually, Michael Kors announced in June 2020 that he would be taking a break from NYFW. 

“I have for a long time thought that the fashion calendar needs to change,” Kors said in a statement last year. “It’s exciting for me to see the open dialogue within the fashion community about the calendar—from Giorgio Armani to Dries Van Noten to Gucci to YSL to major retailers around the globe—about ways in which we can slow down the process and improve the way we work. We’ve all had time to reflect and analyze things, and I think many agree that it’s time for a new approach for a new era.”
