Does Montreal Fashion Week get more exciting than this? Will Smith showed up at the Arsenal Tuesday night for the Ralph Leroy show, and a melee – sometimes not so pretty as a burly bodyguard faced off against media — ensued. The American star, overshadowing the presence of Habs P.K. Subban and Brandon Prust, happened to be in town and was invited by one of Leroy’s models, Sarodj Bertin, Miss Haiti Universe 2010, who works with the designer to help Haiti improve its image and rebuild after the devastating earthquake of 2010. Celebrity brouhaha aside, and a riveting dance faceoff between ballerinas and Haitian dancers to close the Leroy show, the four-day event is really about fashion.
