#SocialGathering: What Designer Topped Twitter During NYFW; Which Show Did Tiffany Trump Crash?
And a behind-the-scenes look at Beyonce's epic Grammys hair.
Can't keep up with what's been going on in the social media world? Fret not. Here, a gathering of what the stars have been up to this week on social media.
3 Most Retweeted NYFW Tweets
Well, this is awkward. The top three tweets of New York Fashion Week were from shows that didn’t even happen in New York. Two don’t even include photos taken at the show. Social media king Cameron Dallas’ tweet about Tommy Hilfiger’s Venice Beach extravaganza and blogger Diafana Musa got massive reach. And Dream Closet’s tweet about the Elie Saab couture show, which took place back in January during Paris Couture Week, topped the list. Maybe Tommy was onto something — does New York Fashion Week need a change of scenery? Coach transported show attendees to the prairie, Thom Browne sent his models out to skate on "thin ice," and Ralph Lauren transformed his store into a Far East paradise, covering walls in 100,000-plus orchids and butterflies, something that could typically only be seen at the massive Orchid greenhouses in China or Japan. But Tommy transported fashion fans (both literally and figuratively) to the West Coast.

Tommy Hilfiger Wins Fashion Week Social Media
Not only did Tommy Hilfiger’s Venice show garner the top two NYFW tweets, the designer also topped by 72.65 percent Google’s list of the Top 10 Trending Most Popular Fashion Designers. The brand's reach on social was measured by social media metrics site Synthesio. In second place was Raf Simons, who snagged great reviews for his debut collection as chief creative officer at Calvin Klein.
Neal Farinah, hairstylist to Beyonce, posted images from sister Solange’s Grammys afterparty, where Beyonce rocked her glossy, long lace-front wig. (Similar to Kim’s latest wig.) Beyonce’s lace-front garnered huge social numbers (Pret-a-Reporter’s video of Adele speaking to Bey has 277,000 views and counting), but her voluminous, goddesslike hair during her Grammys performance was what had fans awestruck. Farinah’s Insta is a must-follow for the latest BTS (Bey-approved, of course) of the queen.
Kate Hudson, Tiny Dancer
If you need some #FridayFeeling inspo, check out Kate Hudson’s dance moves. The former dancer slays with trainer Nicole Winhoffer. “NW Method Blends Art Science Music and Sports to calm the mind, transform the body, and free the soul,” according to Winhoffer’s Instagram profile. We’ll take some of that.
Fake Fashion News?
After reports surfaced that fashion editors did not want to sit next to Tiffany Trump at Philipp Plein's NYFW show, Whoopi Goldberg defended the president's daughter on The View: “I’m gonna come find your ass [at a fashion show] and sit next to you, girl.” But was it much ado about nothing? While it seems reasonable that editors might not want to be in the limelight or be photographed with Trump, as they are private citizens, other guests who observed the seating situation at the show said editors were moved because Plein's girlfriend wanted to sit next to Trump. TMZ posted video of the designer chastising show guests: “I don’t think she has anything to do with the drama and all the discussion going on, I just think it’s not right to treat someone not with respect just because he is the son or daughter of someone.” Plein further explained that Trump wasn’t invited and there was a PR request from her office to come to the show. Nonetheless, like father like daughter, Trump tweeted a response to Goldberg: “Thank you
@WhoopiGoldberg I’d love to sit with you too!” she wrote, ending with an emoji. One can only hope her dad doesn’t get into tweeting emojis, too.
Nobody wants to sit next to Tiffany Trump at Philipp Plein, so they moved and the seats by her are empty. pic.twitter.com/XcxNYI6Kf8— Christina Binkley (@BinkleyOnStyle) February 14, 2017
