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.

Tinsley Mortimer's Fashion Week Favorites

A longtime observer of Fashion Week, socialite Tinsley Mortimer had lots of opinions about this year's collections. She shared with us a few of her favorites, including looks from Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera.

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.

Surviving Fashion Week

Whether you're a model, a stylist, or a celebrity, Fashion Week can be grueling. Five veterans of the shows gave Jada Yuan their survival tips. High on the list: Eating.

Paris Takes Notes for Us

Imagine our slack-jawed surprise to see Paris taking notes from the front row at Max Azria (it WRITES!) while Nicky sat sour-faced and bored. What gives, heiresses? We turned to each other in queasy dread: Would we have to reassess? Would our world plop off its axis and into a sea of shame?

Cator Sparks, Dandy in Distress

Today, writer Cator Sparks is a "dandy in distress," with a cockerel pinned to his hat, and a dirty joke on his lips.

Heavily Hairsprayed Dos No Longer Don'ts

Long luscious locks are getting reigned in, pinned up, and teased — possibly beyond repair — this spring. Designers and stylists wielded cans of hairspray with abandon at Monday's shows.

Marc Jacobs: Totally Worth the Wait

Waiting to get into the Marc Jacobs show at the Armory tonight was like lining up for the new Star Wars, except with fashionistas instead of geeks. But the wait — and the attendant fear that we were all about to be killed in the unholy, disorganized crush of humanity — was worth it, because this was the premiere celeb spotting event of our lives.

Tim Gunn's Fashion Week Favorites

Which outfit will get you Tim Gunn's nod of approval? We asked the Project Runway mentor to pick his favorite looks from the runways.

Ten Things We Liked on Monday

Models regain their footing in a classy way and Marc Jacobs soothes the savage fashion editor on a Monday full of pleasant finds.

Tripping the Runway Fantastic

We spent the first few days of Fashion Week giddily anticipating our first glimpse of Anna Wintour. We fielded several phone calls from home asking if we’d seen The Bobbed One yet. But the answer was always a downtrodden "no." Until today.

The Pack Is Back

Like taking pictures in Times Square, wearing a fanny pack has long been considered tourist territory. But if this week's shows are any indication, these bum bags (that's what they're called in other countries) are once again hip for, well, the hip.

Gramercy Park Mobilizes Against Marc Jacobs

Some Gramercy Park residents were surprised on Sunday evening when handwritten notes were slid under their doors, urging them to take action. The cause for the outrage? A certain fashion party scheduled for tonight.

What Barneys Is Buying

Throughout the week, the buyers from Barneys, Intermix, and other stores will tell us which runway looks they plan on stocking. Today, Julie Gilhart, senior vice-president and fashion director of Barneys New York, files her weekend picks.

Bold-Name Desperation Outside the French Vogue Party

How exclusive was French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld's Saturday-night party for the young swans of fashion, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, Bee Shaffer, and Margherita Missoni? Too exclusive for us. But the scene outside the velvet ropes at the Gramercy Park Hotel might have been as entertaining as the one inside.

Fashion Grumps Don't Mind the Parties

Not everyone feels glamorous at Fashion Week. Here are a few scenes from the weekend's parties. Chris Noth and Whoopi Goldberg, attending the Rainforest Action Network party at the Plumm, freely admitted their fashion don'ts.

Fashion Blogs We Like

Bloggers are working Fashion Week almost as hard as the designers, frantically publishing runway videos, podcasts, and handbag critiques.
