Whitney Port is of the school of thought that in fashion, you’ve got to fake it ‘til you make it. That’s what she revealed Wednesday afternoon inside Manhattan’s Skylight at Moynihan Station, where the former star of The Hills was on hand to sit front row at Bibhu Mohapatra's fall 2016 New York Fashion Week show. Dressed in an ensemble by the designer (she rocked tailored paints with a structural top and matching coat), Port explained why she loves making it to the shows.

“I love Bibhu’s cocktail wear. I think that his dresses are so fun and the prints are so vibrant. It’s always fun and festive to wear,” she told InStyle. What happens off the runway also captivates her. “I think the people watching is the best. I think it’s just so interesting to see how people translate fashion during fashion week because it’s really all the biggest innovators and most influential trendsetters. I just get a lot of inspiration from it.”

And though, like all other front row fixtures, she elegantly hops from show to show in style, she wants young girls everywhere to understand that doing so is hard work. “It’s not as glamorous as it looks,” she said. “It’s a lot of running around and changing and being kind of gross and dirty, but faking it with lots of makeup and hair and cute clothes.” She faked it and, clearly, now she’s made it.
