BEDFORD, N.Y. (AP) -- Lauren. Ralph Lauren.
James Bond may have had a couple Aston Martins, and a Bentley or two. But Ralph Lauren? He has dozens upon dozens of vintage cars - hundreds of millions of dollars' worth. And on Tuesday night, the designer used them to display his latest fashion line, taking the concept of site-specific fashion shows to new (and expensive) heights.
A fleet of black SUVs ferried some 300 guests out to a multi-level garage in suburban Westchester County, New York in what had to have been one of the most opulent settings ever devised for a fashion show. Inside, guests gawked at the shiny cars and glamorous outfits modeled by the likes of Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid.
