When it comes to the runway, we usually like to leave it to the pros. Celebrity appearances can feel gimmicky and do serious damage to a designer’s street cred. But leave it to Alex Wang to be the exception to the rule. Its shows are always the spot to rub elbows with the coolest of cool, and this year, the darling of the New York scene took it up a notch by inviting Yo-Landi Vi$$er and Ninja of Die Antwoord to sit front row at its spring ’13 show.

If anyone on this earth can pull off a face mask, it’s definitely Yo-Landi. Actually, they’re sort of the perfect models for Alex Wang’s dirty-edgy-too-cool-for-school aesthetic. This isn’t the first time they’ve teamed up with the designer — remember this video? Love ’em or hate ’em, this crazy duo just refuses to go away, and as far as we’re concerned, that’s just fine.
