You can't talk about handbags for Spring 2013 without mentioning Karl's enormous hula-hoop creation that stole the show at Chanel. Clearly, that one takes the cake as the most dramatic accessories moment of the season. (And comes with an instructions on how to use it from the Kaiser himself.)
We always imagined life of an Editor-in-Chief to be totally glamorous: Parties, fashion shows, air kisses with celebs. But it also means working as hard as you play. How do we know? We got none other than Glamour EIC Cindi Leive to give us a peek at what fashion week is really like for an editor of a major fashion glossy, mom, and cat owner (his name's Luigi).
While most designers prefer to shyly pop their heads out at the end of a runway show, take a quick bow, and GTFO, Dame Viv made a scene of her entrance, purposefully, it seemed, upstaging the collection she'd just shown. Why? Well, she's trying to start a revolution.

Is the fash pack getting more decisive or just more sleep deprived? Tough call. On the penultimate day of shows, consensus was Marchesa's Bollywood-inspired beaded and brocaded flights of fashion fancy when beyond the point of OTT, and by comparison Michael Kors's rugby striped prototypes felt a little, well, catalog.

These are the most buzzed about collections on day 7 of NYFW.

Tyra Banks sits front row as well and spotted on the feet of show goers are plenty of cool, clean, Adidas sneakers creating a singular type of atmosphere that only a man like Jeremy can create. This is NYFW through the eyes of a sports fanatic.
