By now, most of us know how much of a logistical hot mess Kanye West’s NYFW show was yesterday at Roosevelt Island. It started 90 minutes late. It was so hot that the models were sweating out their ‘do’s. One model even fainted in the 90-degree weather. And, the neutral palette of bodysuits, jackets and hoodies were, well, Kanye.
All signs signaled this to be a major fashion don’t. Except, it wasn’t. Once finally underway, model Chanel Iman and midriff-baring Teyana Taylor joined nearly 500 beautiful black, brown and tan (and blonde) ladies to stomp the pyramid-shaped runway in gloriously understated fashion.

The pair brought undeniable #blackgirlmagic and hair slay that was in full effect throughout the presentation. Teyana served body goals as usual in an underboob- and ab-revealing ensemble with a slicked back bob, while Chanel rocked a behind-the-ear look with side part and nude face.
