It’s New York Fashion Week, you guys, and if this hilarious writer is to be believed, it pretty much sucks balls.
We don’t know if we’d go that far, but amid all the breathless enthusiasm—Celebs! Shoes! More celebs!—it's nice to be reminded that this glam event designed for the world’s most-beautiful people can still involve pratfalls, pranks and other shenanigans. Here are four of the wackiest moments yet.
Subway (yes, that Subway) sponsors dress competition
During fashion week last year, Subway sponsored a contest to make a dress out of materials from its sandwich shops, including napkins and wrappers. The winning designer earned free Subway for a year. We’re officially jealous (and impressed!).
