Leave it to Marc Jacobs to send off New York Fashion Week with a bang.

On Thursday evening, Marc Jacobs presented his fall collection to a massive audience at the Lexington Avenue Armory, sending his models around in luxe wool, fur, silk and knit ensembles rendered in rich hues of burgundy, navy, gray and gold.

Yet there was one model who wore very little at all: 18-year-old Lily McMenamy, daughter of legendary '90s model Kristen McMenamy, trotted down the runway wearing nothing but hot pants and elbow-length gloves. She shielded her toplessness with one delicately placed hand.

This wasn't Lily's first turn on the runway, but it was certainly her most memorable. The teen made her modeling debut at Hedi Slimane's first Saint Laurent show in September 2012 and was quickly plucked by Karl Lagerfeld to walk for Chanel, too. A shoot for T magazine qickly followed. "I feel like I’ve had a lot of experience for an 18-year-old. I grew up quite fast," Lily remarked to Into The Gloss.

Walking topless at a Marc Jacobs show might be her most unforgettable experience yet. Check out photos of Lily's major red carpet moment below.
