4 Ways the fashion set celebrates Thanksgiving

The fashion world loves a good holiday, and turkey day is no exception. Who can forget that epic Thanksgiving scene from “Ugly Betty,” where Marc and Amanda sneak into the Mode magazine offices to raid the closet and watch the parade?

From international Instagrams to recipe sharing, the fashion industry brings their A-game each year. Check out these four ways your favorite designers, models and editors celebrate the most delicious holiday.

1. Posh place settings

Would you expect anything less? Although you can find endless table-setting inspiration on Pinterest, you might be better off checking Instagram to find this year’s decorating trends.

2. Family fun

Thanksgiving is a time for giving thanks for friends and family. Everyone from Ralph Lauren to Miranda Kerr gathers their relatives to spend quality time, and of course reminisce on a few well-dressed traditions.

3. Frequent flying

A lot of people travel over the Thanksgiving holiday to be together with loved ones, but the long weekend can also turn into an opportunity for globe trekking. Take Anna Wintour’s 2010 trip the Shanghai Museum for example or Cynthia Rowley’s Icelandic celebration just last year.

4. Taste Testing

If you follow Zac Posen on Instagram then you are likely intimately familiar with his passion for food and his frequent use of #CookingWithZac (he apparently makes a great molasses-and-sesame-seed cookie). But, he’s not alone in his love for the kitchen. Always the hostess, Dallas native Lela Rose has the best trick for turkey leftovers and designer Billy Reid spices things up with shrimp and andouille parmesan cheese grits and for dessert, cream biscuits. (Yum!)
