A Cozy Valentine’s Day Look From a Cold Day at Fashion Week
This lady in red wore everyone’s favorite romantic winter outfit at the shows
Since both Valentine’s Day and Fashion Week fall in mid February, sometimes they collide. Today is one of those times.
It’s unfathomably cold in New York this weekend, but that didn’t stop one fashionista from honoring the holiday with an amazing red outfit. Fashion consultant Agus Cattaneo caught sight of model and fashion blogger Xenia Tchoumitcheva outside the shows at Skylight at Moynihan Station; Tchoumitcheva was wearing a huge fur hat with a chunky red turtleneck and matching trousers.
When Vocativ combed the social media platforms for posts from this weekend that all mentioned the weather and Valentine’s Day, and which were also either geo-tagged to NYFW venues or included one of the fashion week hashtags, this photo of Tchoumitcheva came out on top as the most popular.
(Though she looks amazing, we can’t help but ask where her coat is. It’s freezing outside!)
Tchoumitchev is not new to the scene; she began her modeling career as a child and was crowned first runner-up in the Miss Switzerland pageant when she was just 18 years old. She went on to earn a degree in economics and intern at JP Morgan, but turned down the bank’s full-time job offer, saying she wanted to start her own business. The model became an entrepreneur when she launched her online magazine Chic Overdose in 2013. The following year she gave a TEDx talk about women and leadership, cementing her role as a savvy businesswomen in a competitive industry.
