Seen at Fashion Week: Already, Things Get Racy and Surreal

By

We're only on day two of the semi-annual fashion festival, but if the scantily clad girls at Cushnie et Ochs and the ripped torsos at the VFiles party are any metric, things are as racy and surreal as ever. Also on display: glistening celebrity cleavage, Rapunzel ponytails, lecherous men, and Karen Elson in a pale haze at Jason Wu. Show-goers couldn't put down their smart phones and iPads, sometimes watching whole shows through those lenses, but Cut photographer Landon Nordeman kicked off his fashion coverage for the week, capturing all the follies he could find. Click through for moments from Tadashi Shoji, Kate Spade, Peter Som, Costello Tagliapietra, BCBG, and more.
