The Most Memorable Fashion Week Front Rows Ever

Strange but true fact: These days, runway shows are as much about who’s sitting front row as they are about the clothes being presented. So what makes a front row memorable, you ask? With some, it’s seeing a random grouping of celebrities that you’d never imagine would be in the same place together (e.g., Nicki Minaj and Anna Wintour). With others, it’s the thrill of seeing some of our favorite style stars perched on the front row together, looking lovely. And given the recent kick-off of NYFW, ’tis the season to reminisce.

Scroll down to see the most memorable front rows of all time, and to shop a few of our favorite front row–worthy pieces.
