    If there's one thing New Yorkers hate most, it's waiting. But during New York Fashion Week, sitting around before the shows start is part and parcel of the experience. For models in particular, the struggle is real.

    Girls often wait hours while getting their hair, makeup, and nails done before they hit the runway, so you can bet they have an array of books, music, and games on rotation to pass the time. This Fashion Week, we decided to ask a few models exactly what they do to entertain themselves backstage. Click through to check out their answers.
