Fashion Week Report Card: All-American Edition

The latest bunch of designers to walk were the epitome of New York style: Anna Sui's rocker chic, Narciso Rodriguez's minimalism, and Michael Kors's all-American looks. We round up the critics' reviews of the key New York collections so far.

Uptown Girls

For designers who never step too far from the eighties, this season's looks were less Madonna and more Azzedine Alaïa: rich gals lounging by the pool.

Choking Down a Media Sandwich

The crescendo of our Fashion Week celebrity-spotting started slowly with Kristin Cavallari, built with Kristen Bell and Mischa Barton sightings at every turn, and peaked on our final night in New York at the packed Zac Posen show.

Fashion Showdown: Wintour vs. Zoe

Calvin Klein showed twice consecutively today, and it turns out that when you attend the second show, you have a very good chance of running into famous faces who are leaving the first. This is how we witnessed the Fashion Showdown of the Week.

Fashion Week Report Card: Debutante Edition

A number of new designers took their first bow on the runway this season. Which ones became instant stars? Did Phillip Lim live up to the hype?

Picture your high-school production of South Pacific, subtract half the clothes, add some cynical drag queens, and then do three shots of whiskey. Voilà: You have Heatherette's Tuesday-night show.

Connect the Dots

Do not adjust your screen. Those spots you're seeing are intentional. Designers are channeling Cruella De Vil (sans fur) and adding dots to tops.

Beth Ostrosky Issues an APB for White Stretch Pants

At Betsey Johnson's show Tuesday afternoon, her granddaughter made her runway debut. Johnson handed the baby off to daughter Lulu before turning her trademark cartwheel. At the end of the runway, stylist Patricia Field joined the designer for a little boogie, which exposed a bit of Johnson's black thong.

Celebrities: Wear Behnaz Sarafpour

Some of our favorite collections from Fashion Week came down the runways with almost no celebrities in attendance — first at the Ashleigh Verrier show on Friday, and now Tuesday's Behnaz Sarafpour presentation.

Barbara Walters, Tinsley Mortimer, Patricia Field at Oscar de la Renta

Oscar de la Renta is the designer for the Laura Bushes of the world, and his front row yesterday was, as one might guess, a socialite-a-polooza. Every girl you see on Patrick McMullan was taking mental notes on which evening gown to get her husband or father to buy for her.
