According to reports, the show began with the famous Serenity Prayer that activists swear by -- 'Grant me the strength to change the things I cannot accept.'

The sisters take another turn.
For some seasons now, Prabal Gurung has brought his political ideologies to the runway.

Standing up to the issues of our times this time too, the Nepali-origin designer kept his runway diverse with the Hadid sisters (their father is Palestinian American), plus-size model Ashley Graham (pictured above), and transgender model Andreja Pejic.

And we loved, just as Vogue did, this look. The fashion magazine said, 'Over the last few seasons, Gurung has turned cut-outs trimmed with rouleau buttons into a key signature; this time around he added them to ribbed knit dresses and, most effectively, a deep-hemmed sweater.'

In an earlier season, Gurung had taken inspiration from Steinem and woven quotes from prominent feminists into his designs.
Yesterday, she was his guest of honor.
