Liberty Ross looked striking and full of confidence as she hit the catwalk for Alexander Wang's New York Fashion Week show on Thursday (September 6, 2012). However, the model-turned-actress confessed to NY Magazine that she had been terrified of appearing on the runway, following the scandal that rocked her marriage and home life, recently. Liberty's husband, the director Rupert Sanders was recently exposed in a tabloid scandal which revealed that he had been having an affair with the actress Kristen Stewart
Kristen and her then-boyfriend Robert Pattinson have been at the eye of the media storm but Liberty's life has also been shaken by the news. After her catwalk appearance, she admitted "I was totally terrified. I hadn't actually been out of my house for seven weeks so I was really anxious. But it felt amazing." Wang's New York Fashion Week show was one of the hottest tickets in town; the designer's new collection has been hotly anticipated for some time. Alexander himself was keen to show his support for the troubled star and told reporters that he asked her to take part in the show "because I love and support her."
After the catwalk show was done, Liberty let her hair down and danced to Die Antwoord at the Chambers Street bank after-party. It was a star-studded affair, with Busta Rhymes leading the toast to Wang and ordering guests to "just put your f*cking drinks up," before spraying everyone with champagne. The rowdy behavior continued, with Wang dancing with models and climbing on people's shoulders, into the small hours.
