The seats at Fashion Week aren't on risers just so you can see the runway, because let's face it: Unless you're sitting front row, you just won't get a complete look at the outfits. The risers are there so that the industry can check out each other as well as the clothes. You know: Did Anna just scratch her nose? Is ALT in shorts again? Oh heavens, Kate Lanphear looks terribly chic today — I do admire the fortitude of her Achilles tendons. To that end, we compiled a slideshow of what some of our favorite editors wore to spring 2011 New York Fashion Week. Anna Wintour stuck to her usual uniform of nice dresses; Carine Roitfeld enjoyed her multiple pairs of over-the-knee, open-toed boots; Anna Dello Russo wore a watermelon on her head; and Kate Lanphear just looked consistently, enviously cool. See those ladies and more in the slideshow.
