The Most Memorable Front Row Fashion Moments at NYFW Spring 2020

New York in September is all about the fashion — and not just on the runway. A-listers attending the New York Fashion Week shows bring their sartorial best each season, wearing statement-making looks front row that make as many headlines as the collections.

Operating on a reduced schedule this year, NYFW spring ’20 officially spanned from Friday, Sept. 6, to Wednesday, Sept. 11. The biggest shows were filled with celebrity guests, such as Kendall Jenner, Zendaya and Gigi Hadid, holding court.

For the second straight season, Jenner opted not to walk any NYFW shows, but she attended several events throughout the week. The Longchamp ambassador made her way to the brand’s show on Sept. 7, sporting a yellow leather dress and open-toe black booties for the occasion.

Jenner’s model pals Gigi and Bella Hadid walked plenty of shows, but the duo also made time for a front-row appearance at the see-now, buy-now Tommy x Zendaya show on Sept. 8. The sisters both sported ’70s-inspired looks that were also modeled in the show.
