Teenage model goes topless at Fashion Week
18-year old walks runway sans top.
There always tends to be a few key looks that stick out from the runway shows during Fashion Week, but this model in particular got all the attention during the Marc Jacobs runway show last week for what she wasn’t wearing, not for what she was wearing.
Although at first many were not sure who she was, the Internet soon identified her as model Lily McMenamy (daughter of supermodel Kristen McMenamy). The 18-year-old walked the runway wearing “pinstriped hot pants, mesh elbow-length gloves, and some heels. She covered her boobs with one gloved hand while every single show-goer held up a phone and snapped away,” during the show, according to Fashionista.com.

And although the model is newer than many (she recently signed with an agency in fall and this show was her third runway show, preceded by Chanel and Saint Laurent), this is definitely quite the debut. But after all, it runs in the family. "It's always been kind of a secret fantasy for me," Lily told New York Magazine's The Cut.

You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days. So we thought we'd take this opportunity to let you know which rules no longer apply.
Put down the wrinkled button-down, step away from the Crocs, and open your closet. We need to talk about the new rules of casual.
