THE BIG PAYBACK: Last season, Alexander Wang caused a midsize fashion week stir when he cast Liberty Ross in his runway show. The model hadn’t walked in quite some time and was coming off a tabloid-ready scandal thanks to her then-husband Rupert Sanders’ affair with Kristen Stewart. At Wang’s show at the Cunard Building on Saturday afternoon, Ross had moved to the front of house. “You know what? I love both,” she laughed when asked if she preferred the front row. “I was so blessed and grateful. It was a wonderful, meaningful moment for me last season to walk for Wang. I had never walked for him so it meant a lot. The fact [was] that he was supporting me through something that was [a] really trying time. Now I want to support him because he’s so wonderful and he’s got such incredible things happening.…It showed a strength that I needed.”
Across the runway from Ross in the smoky space, other front-row attendees included Zoë Kravitz, Alison Mosshart and A$AP Rocky, who mugged for the cameras with Terry Richardson.
