D: It’s been a very busy and fun week! I’ve seen about 15 shows, and have loved every single one of them.

P: Around 15 shows this season. How great is that?

What was your favorite outfit, collection, or trend that you saw on the runway?


P: I love that there are alot of flowy fabrics. It looks amazing when you walk in the outfits. It just moves with you with every step. I also found a lot of inspiration with hairstyles.

D: My favorite collection would have to be Nicole Miller. While watching her show, I noticed that I would wear each outfit off the runway!

Did you meet any celebrities?

D: Yes, some of the celebrities I met included The Black Eyed Peas, Karrueche, Nigel Barker, Jessica Pimentel, and Simone Biles. It was such a pleasure to have met them!

P: Yes I met quite a few and was also able to see some prominent people in the industry that I’ve met or worked before.

What was your favorite part of NYFW?


D: My favorite part was when I walked in the Sherri Hill fashion show. A year ago, I would have never believed that I would be walking down the runway as Miss USA at NYFW.

P: Aside from the shows which is a given, I love the street style. Even before you enter the venue to watch a show there’s already so much to see. Everyone is dressed so well!

Which designer collection would you like to be a runway model in?


P:  Nicholas K, Carmen Marc Valvo, Son Jung Wan and Nicole Miller.

D: I would love to walk the runway in a Jeremy Scott fashion show! I love his unique style and designs.

What was your favorite look that you got to wear?


P: I’m really trying to choose a favorite but I loved all of them! I’m lucky enough to be able to choose what to wear based on the choices given to me and so far I’ve felt at my best in all of the looks I did this NYFW.

D:  My absolute favorite look was the Nicholas K. cream colored dress. It had a stunning wrap-like sleeve that fell off the shoulder, and the look was finished with a beautiful cream belt.
