Watch: Christine Quinn Shares Her New York Fashion Week Tips
A fashion statement, indeed!
There is power in style and, sometimes, a piece of clothing is so striking it can break the internet. Don't believe us? In 2019, Jennifer Lopez made fans drop "On the Floor" after she closed out the Versace runway in an updated and more sexy version of the iconic green dress she wore to the 2000 Grammy Awards.
Of course, pop culture enthusiasts wouldn't have expected anything less from J.Lo's viral moment. After all, Google Images was created after she first donned the emerald number.
And just a year before, all eyes were on Slick Woods. The model, who strutted her stuff for Rihanna's Savage x Fenty catwalk while nine months pregnant, closed out the show with a bang. Because shortly after the presentation, Slick revealed she went into labor.
"A lewk," she shared on Instagram after giving birth. "14 hours of labor, and A king is born."
Of course, we're only scratching the surface here.
From Alexander McQueen's tear-jerking show to Naomi Campbell's graceful tumble down the runway, take a look at all of the fashion week moments that still have people buzzing.

Slick Woods proved just how incredible women are. After walking Rihanna's Savage x Fenty show during New York Fashion Week in 2018, the model, who was nine months pregnant, went into labor that night. "A lewk," the new mom said on Instagram. "14 hours of labor, and A king is born. This is the face of a WOMAN IN LABOR, we hold s–t down most of us don't even know how much we're going through, I'm here to say I CAN DO WHATEVER THE F–K I WANT WHENEVER THE F–K I WANT AND SO CAN YOU."
The "Dinero" singer made everyone green with envy after she closed out the Versace runway in March 2019. Making her Milan Fashion Week appearance all the more exciting? J.Lo donned a sexier version of her famous tropical-printed dress from the 2000 Grammys.

Designer Kerby Jean-Raymond sent fashion fanatics into a frenzy after debuting Pyer Moss' Haute Couture fall/winter 2021/2022 collection. The celebration of Black culture took center stage, which only added more significance to the designer's historic show. It marked the first time in over 150 years that an African American presented on the couture calendar in the Chambre Syndicale.
"I wanted to use the stage to share with other Black Americans who inspire me—and Black people who inspired me," he told CNN. "So I chose to make the collection a highlight reel, in a way, of many of the things we've contributed to society at large."
