CT HeddenYou can often catch CT Hedden dashing around the New York City downtown hotspot Indochine, where he is the General Manager, or hosting extravagant cabaret parties with nightlife icon Susanne Bartsch. But during Fashion Month, Hedden is always seated front row at major runway shows. From New York to Milan and Paris, the nightlife personality is taking on fashion month one blonde wig at a time.

Getting dolled up in drag is hard enough, but for back-to-back fashion shows (dressed in head-to-toe looks by the designer, of course), it takes some serious behind-the-scenes magic to create those flawless front row moments. Hedden is giving GRAZIA USA a peek inside his busy day during Milan Fashion Week by taking us along to the Fendi and Alberta Ferretti shows.

Scroll down to see all the candid moments Hedden captured during day one of Milan Fashion Week, and head to GRAZIA USA‘s Instagram Stories for even more BTS of the day.
