BGs Best in Show: Coco of Wes Gordon
Coco enters 5th/58th and gives a quick shake before asking for permission to sit on the couch.
1.) Good afternoon, Coco! Thanks so much for joining us on this rainy afternoon!
Honey, it is my pleasure. Wes and I had such a laugh on the way here… we called it our FNO transportation rehearsal. I promised him that I’d stay still during the ride here but you know how exciting those taxicabs rides are…and get this: they mentioned Fashion’s Night Out on taxi tv!
2.) Oh I can imagine… This is your first year to walk in BGs Best in Show, isn’t it?
Oh yes. And let me tell you, I cannot wait. It’s going to be the most fun.
3.) Can you share what your costume inspiration is?
Well. I was pawing through Wes’ lookbook and came across this fabulous ensemble. It’s a plaid dirndl skirt with a positively adorable ivory chiffon blouse that has these black leather collar and cuffs. Do you know it? Well, I already bought a navy version of this same top on the Fourth Floor; it’s very Belle du Jour… but I just had to have the ivory version for the catwalk. So after much whining, pawing and hypnotizing Wes with my big puppy eyes, he agreed to make it bespoke! Oh Wes… he’s such a doll, isn’t he?
4.) He is quite the charmer! So when it comes to dog parks, where do you & Wes like to go?
Have you been to Central Park before 9am? It’s an absolute dream.
5.) That’s what Pebbles was just saying! Seems like Central Park is quite popular among those who will be on the catwalk… speaking of the catwalk, what will do you if you win?
I’ll start with a good steak dinner… and then we’ll see where the night takes me.
