It's always refreshing to catch a moment of levity in what can be a serious, stressful affair backstage before a big show, and this photo makes us not only smile, but also seriously want to blow it up and put in on a wall in our apartment. We love the juxtaposition of the written instructions with the model in medias res—the whimsical and surreal effect almost reminds us of a fashion Magritte (almost). We dare you to find a better composition all fashion week! We're gonna go ahead and call it—best behind-the-scene photo of NYFW!
