Every Fashion Week, someone becomes 'The Celebrity'—the one who sits front row at all the big shows, swirls through every major party, and gets swarmed by paparazzi and Snapchat users alike. This year, that celeb might just be Caitlyn Jenner.
Exhibit A: According to The Fashion Monitor, the I Am Cait star will reportedly attend the Givenchy show in Manhattan.
As reported by the subscription-based site, Jenner will witness Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci's first American runway, along with artist Marina Abramovic...and 820 "regular" NYC residents who won tickets in an online lottery.
Really, it's not that surprising. Tisci is a close friend of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. He's enlisted Kendall Jenner as a runway model. He even made a teeny designer outfit for baby North's first Paris fashion show. Why wouldn't he invite the newest It Kardashian/Jenner to his show?
Of course, there are plenty of reasons this might not happen. Caitlyn could be busy filming her TV show, playing with her grandchildren, or—who knows?—designing her own fashion line. She could also be wary of the insanity that is Manhattan during New York Fashion Week. For fame hunters, there's no bigger trophy right now than a selfie with Ms. Jenner herself, and arriving at a giant venue full of style fans might not be her idea of a party.
But still, we've got high hopes. Caitlyn's family will be there, her front-row seat will be guaranteed, and her love of fashion will be on full display. And if Nori can stop traffic in a Givenchy onesie, imagine what Ms. Jenner could do in the label's famed evening gowns.
