...and Alex Wang, only. We spotted the vet backstage, 10 minutes before showtime. She was crouched over a glass bottle of soda. "I'm very nervous," she explained. "That's why I'm drinking Coke, to give me a buzz."
How'd she end up back at NYFW? "Alex asked me to do the show and I'm exclusive for him," said Ross, who lives in L.A. "If I'm going to do a show, it's going to be this one. I haven't done a New York show in years. I mean, I have two kids—I quit my job."
As to whether she was hesitant to accept Wang's invitation, Ross said: "I was on the fence. But then I was like, 'Come on, just do it. Go to New York and be brave!'"
