Victoria Beckham takes a bow after her AW16 show in New York

Victoria Beckham Goes Coy

Sometimes it’s hard to concentrate on VB’s collection when it’s sandwiched between her superstar family being ushered in to take their seats before the show, and her taking her bow when it’s finished. So she kept the latter short and sweet, just poking her head out to say hello before skipping off in flat (GASP!) white sneakers with a coy look over her shoulder. What about the clothes?

Upstairs was where all the fun was though, with our new party girl crush Karlie Kloss leading the way in a conga that included Gigi Hadid, Jourdan Dunn and Lily Aldridge (check out our Instagram and Facebook pages for our video). It’s just a shame that no-one gave Kendall Jenner the memo saying that they were supposed to be enjoying themselves. Cheer up love!
