Random Cat Crashes Fashion Show, Fights Models

Fashion shows are glamorous soiree – trendy or emerging designers presenting their newest collections, elite models and a bit snobby onlookers make the fashion shows as prestigious as they are. However, not even fashion is safe from a mischevious silly cat or two. Just like a walking pun come to life, a weird cat set the internet on fire when it decided to strut its stuff on the ‘catwalk.’ Yes, it all occurred at the Esmod International Fashion Show held in Emaar Square Mall in Istanbul, Turkey, much to the delight of all the cute cat onlookers.

Attendees at the event filmed the new kitty cat model clean herself and even swat her paw at the human participants, followed up by a strut-worthy of Tyra.

The fashion designer, Göksen Hakkı Ali, told The Dodo, “Everybody was in shock.” But shock factor is favored in the fashion world, so when asked if the funny cat had a future career Ali responded, “Haha, maybe, why not?” Scroll down to see the cat photos of this glorious new star own the stage!

Recently the Esmod International Fashion Show, held in Istanbul, was crashed by a stray cat

“And judging from her adorable little attacks on the models passing by, those weren’t things she was willing to share”

Just watched a documentary of turkey's stray cats not too long ago. Turkey allows strays and shopkeepers and such put out food and care for them, so they're used to walking into any building they want and even crowded restaurants or other places with tons of people

Of course the comments selected to be part of the story are filled to the brim with negativity about the clothing. I don’t understand why people who aren’t even into fashion are always judging runway so harshly when they don’t even understand the fact that it’s mostly conceptual.

Okay, is it just me or do models nowadays just see how much they can clump up and down the runway? They used to walk with such style and grace. Is it because they are hungry and this is their way of protesting? Do they just not enjoy what they are doing?
