This year, models brought their own A-list fans with them to work

When most of us bring our significant others to work … well, actually unless it’s some kind of obligatory holiday work party situation, we can’t actually imagine an occasion when it would be appropriate to bring them to our office. But when you’re a major model like Irina Shayk, bringing your beau to the office is not only acceptable, it’s encouraged — especially because your office is a Parisian runway and he’s bringing some extra glamour to the proceedings.

And that’s why we were only moderately surprised to see Bradley Cooper attending Givenchy’s Fall/Winter 2016 runway show on Sunday in Paris, wearing a peacoat and his naturally curly locks to quietly support his love from the audience. Shayk hit the runway wearing bleached-out brows, a black military-inspired jacket with oversized gold buttons, a black pleated leather skirt and knee-high boots. And of course, Cooper wasn’t the only high-profile audience member supporting a loved one in Paris this week (and no, we’re not just talking about Kris Jenner).

Paul McCartney and his wife Nancy Shevell also attended daughter Stella McCartney‘s fashion show on Sunday wearing a tailored navy suit and dark sunglasses. And Gigi Hadid took a much-deserved break from the catwalk to support her sister Bella, who also happened to walk the same very exclusive Givenchy runway as Irina (if you couldn’t tell from the bleached brows and all-black ensemble).

All of which really just raises the question: Is fashion week the hottest new spectator sport? I mean, it’s always been our personal Super Bowl, we’re just glad the rest of you are finally starting to catch on. Now if only we could muster up a cheer squad this glamorous (or really, just a Bradley Cooper lookalike) to give us pep talks at our desk throughout the work day.

What do you think of these models bringing their own cheering section to their runway shows?
