Peyton List isn’t used to having much downtime, and New York Fashion Week was no different. The 19-year-old actress’s jam-packed schedule included sitting front row at shows like Carolina Herrera, Naeem Khan, and Marchesa, and when she wasn’t taking in the latest runway trends, List—who hails from Redhook, Brooklyn—hit up one glam event after another. But once her daily fashion week duties were done, List took advantage of her down time and embraced being back on her old stomping grounds.
“It’s so fun to be home, because after a show, I get to go out and eat a ton of food with my best friends,” she told InStyle earlier this week. While friendship and food are great perks of NYFW, List was really here for the fashion. “Even just walking the streets, everyone you see has such good style,” she said. “I’ve never been to a city where I think everyone just has such good style and is so put together—even when they’re just wearing the all-black New York uniform.”
While many street style looks border on outrageous, List appreciated seeing some noticeably simpler looks. “Everything’s just gotten so much more casual,” she said. “The first time I ever came to fashion week, everyone was wearing heels. But now it’s all about sneakers paired with a dress. Everyone’s comfortable, but looking really good, too.”
We tagged along with List for her final day of fashion week, and she dished on her NYFW experience before heading to her final show of the week, Marchesa. Press play on the video above to see it all go down, from getting ready in her hotel suite to hanging out backstage.
