I wore my Jeremy Scott x Adidas panda bear sneakers and a sequin mini dress.
I went to get a soda, and a random lady wearing a backstage pass and an EVENT STAFF sweatshirt came up to me and said, “Oh my god, I love your sneakers, where are you sitting?”
We told her, “The very back,” and she said, “Well not anymore – I have four tickets for the front row!”
She reached into her fanny pack – not kidding – and pulled out VIP passes.
We thought she must be lying, or a murderer, or something, but we figured, let’s give it a try.
Turns out, they were totally legit -
We sat in the front row for the whole show, close enough to see Kanye’s insanely cool Comme des Garcons leather skirt up-close.
My favorite part: When Kanye thanked Jay-Z for his advice on women and launched into Gold Digger, and then Jay-Z apologized and said he couldn’t help with any love advice, and started singing, 99 Problems.”
