Behind the Scenes at Fashion Week Spring 2009

    Photographer Nina V. Westervelt shot exclusive images for StyleList during New York's Spring 2009 Fashion Week. Westervelt dismissed the digital and went old school, using a medium format film camera to capture unpolished front row celebs (like supermodel Agyness Deyn at Rodarte), as well as plenty of backstage shenanigans.
