Zelda Kaplan: Zelda Kaplan, Style Icon, Dies

February 17, 2012 by staff 

Zelda Kaplan: Zelda Kaplan, Style Icon, Dies, The Show Must Go On. As a fashion icon collapsed and died at a show during New York fashion week, the runway models didn’t miss a step as they pranced past her.

TMZ obtained footage from the Joanna Mastroianni Autumn/Winter 2012 show on Feb. 15 … which shows three men rushing to Zelda Kaplan’s aid after she lapsed into unconsciousness in her front row seat.

Some of the lights were turned on … and people can be seen crossing over the runway to help out … but the ultra-focused models continue their walks without ever breaking stride.

Eventually, Zelda was carried out by 4 people and taken to a nearby hospital, where she was pronounced dead a short time later.

FYI — models are usually given strict orders to ignore EVERYTHING that happens in the crowd when they’re on the runway. Clearly, these models took their instructions to heart.
