The Latest in Un-Model Behavior

Matching car coats and bags, NYC
Photo by myself in Midtown, around 5th Avenue and 40th Street.

It's still cold here, though Spring is around the corner. The blustery winds make days seem much colder than they look.


What's going on in New York right now?

Well for one, ridiculousness. This weekend, several women were injured when a stampede broke out among hundreds of contestants waiting to audition for America's Top Model.

Investigators are still trying to sort out what happened. Some screamed that there was a bomb. Some cried that there was a fire. In the end, they believe the stampede started over people cutting in line.

Oh of course, we New Yorkers and seriousness over queuing!

You can read more about the silliness here here.

Amazing, the things people will do when part of a crowd, no? It's still chilly here too but the sun's been shining a little more and bulbs are peeking up - spring surely is around the corner!

For some fashion and glory is no deal of joking. As much as I love all things chic and trendy, I keep the infatuation within reasonable limits.

Yep, that sure was ridiculousness at its best...I'm glad you captured these very civilized looking women though, this is a great photo!
