Cynthia Rowley’s Swag for the Skinny-Assed


Of all the swag we've seen carried out of fashion shows this week, Cynthia Rowley's portable butt pad was certainly the strangest — and most practical. Guests in the first and second rows got to use their pads, then peel them off their seats and cart them off, using the foam handle affixed by a chic faux-gold chain. Interior designer Celerie Kemble, who is married to financier–social fixture Boykin Currie, pointed out the pad's oh-so-sweet smell of polyurethane and encouraged us to steal one that had gone unclaimed. "You never know when it might come in handy," she said. "I like to think of myself as having a bony ass."
