Cynthia Rowley’s Show Is Open to Artistic Interpretation


The big question at Cynthia Rowley’s show at the Stage at Lincoln Center yesterday — other than whether Julia Stiles’s new bangs were working for her (they were) — was, “What was up with the models in their underwear?” As the show began, a model in a fifties-style peach bra and high-waisted satin panties entered stage left, walked quickly across the top of the runway, and exited stage right. Then a fully clothed model entered where the half-naked model had exited and did a normal walk down the length of the runway. Two girls later, another underwear-clad model entered stage right, walked across the back part of the runway, and disappeared stage left. This continued without explanation throughout the show.
