There were so many people that the store decided to open an hour early and then...pandemonium!It was IN-SANE. The much-hyped $349 dress was gone before I could even spot it; shoppers were tripping over each other, grabbing anything they could off the racks, and pushing any and everyone aside! People were even trying to rip the clothes off the mannequins!
This one was such a target that it had to be assigned a bodyguard.The excitement was a lot of fun but, overall, I felt a little let down by the clothes. It seemed like the accessories (scarves, hats, sneakers) were the more fun items. Most people, however, thought otherwise--like this young lady, who was so overwhelmed she could only feebly nod when I asked to take her picture!There was, of course, some fierce Real Style on the scene. I caught a few stylistas (including some men's style) who were also die-hard CDG fans:
Even Fashion Bomb friend and celebrity stylist Alexander Allen was in the building:
