Ah, the joy of Fashion Week: the clothes, the models, the celebs...and the parties. Despite what your feet or your liver may tell you, there's no better way to wrap up a day at the runways (or just fantasizing about them from afar) than by rubbing elbows with A-listers—isn't it about time you met Madonna?—and guzzling free drinks. Always eager to serve, we've got the rundown on Fashion Week's best parties, with something to satiate every taste, from Gucci to the Beastie Boys.
