WATCH | Sporting stellar silver, black and white, Buzz Aldrin and Bill Nye brought star power to Nick Graham's Mars-themed exhibition Tuesday at New York Fashion Week: Men's.
Aldrin's Instagram caption claimed the catwalk was as easy as his literal moonwalk.
"I'm not as steady as I was then," Aldrin told Circa backstage after the show. "It was new in [the moon's] gravity, and it was actually much easier to do than we had thought about. There were not so many people taking pictures, or this close!"
We are made of the stuff of exploded stars, and if that doesn't fill you with reverence, then I don't know what does.
A longtime friend of both Graham and Aldrin, the host of "Bill Nye the Science Guy" donned a rocket-patterned jacket to emcee Tuesday's fashion show, where he reminded guests that human beings are celestial descendants.
As the late David Bowie's "Life on Mars?" blared on warehouse speakers, most of Graham's runway models fashioned black, white, gray and silver metallic suits, while a few sported head-to-toe hues ranging from maroon to navy blue.
Nye mulls a fashion show on Mars
Backstage before the event, Nye told Circa the same fashion show on Mars would look more buoyant, due to atmospheric conditions: "You'd be floating [down the runway] because it's just 40 percent of the gravity. You could just bounce along."
Don't expect him to make Mars his home if he somehow attends a hypothetical Nick Graham fashion show on the actual red planet. "Only if we can come back," he insisted. "This one-way idea? It's not for me, people. No, no. You can't breathe. That alone, I find very troubling."
Graham said his line was in part inspired by what someone might wear to dinner on Mars.
He added, "Eventually we're going to be dating there ... New girls will come in on rockets."
