Cara Delevingne and Rihanna CROW-ing [Getty]
Oh to be a fashionista in January: a wardrobe bursting with Spring Summer 2014 wears but no fashion week front row on which to wear it. Welcome then The CROW - that is, the Courtside front row, the place where anyone who’s anyone goes to be seen. And papped.
First up, Cara Delevingne and Rihanna bagged VIP basketball seats at the game between the Brooklyn Nets and the Atlanta Hawks at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Monday. Then, the very next day, Cara was courtside yet again alongside new pal Michelle Rodriguez for the Detroit Pistons vs New York Knicks game at Madison Square Garden. Two games in as many days and let’s face it – where Cara goes, the fash pack follows.
In the last 12 months we’ve seen a heady mix of A listers and would-be FROWers pulling on their heels to get in on the act. There's been Mila and Ashton, Kim and Kanye, Jay Z and Beyonce as well as the Beckhams, of course. Even Queen of the FROW, Anna Wintour, has been spotted courtside in her fashion week finery and obligatory shades. Well, it was back in 2011, but still. As the editor of US Vogue she kind of had to be first, right?
