The name of the game during New York Fashion Week is access. While the real Sisqó — the rapper of “Thong Song” and Dru Hill fame — was in Las Vegas, the man posing as Sisqó enjoyed front row access to some of the most exclusive runway shows and after-parties, including Philipp Plein, Vivienne Tam, and Kanye West’s Yeezy show. This Yahoo Style writer met “Sisqó,” who introduced himself as Lucky Galimier, at the Baja East party at the Gilded Lily club in Manhattan.

Mira Sorvino, the celebrity emcee for the night, explained that the show “shines a light on the exuberance of the women living with metastatic breast cancer.” She continued, “[The show] highlights the need for greater money and resources put into finding a cure for this insidious disease, the only kind of breast cancer that kills women.” The show itself was a fundraising event: 100 percent of all ticket sales were donated to #Cancerland.

Liv Freundlich showed off her cool girl esthetic at J Crew’s NYFW presentation. This New York Fashion Week, J. Crew made a bid to win back its fleeting audience by enlisting a gaggle of “real people” to model the latest collection — that means no big-name runway stars like Kendall, Gigi or Bella.

There, we caught up with superstar Bella Hadid – we upgraded her from supermodel to superstar after she told us she’d just worked several 13-hour days in a row, then flew to Los Angeles yesterday morning, walked the Tommy X Gigi show, then flew straight back to New York afterwards for a shoot today! Dressed head to toe in white, Hadid wore a Nike crop top, sweat pants, a pair of the new NikeLab Dunk Lux Chukka x RT, and an oversized furry coat accessorized with a Christian Dior choker. Despite the recent long days, the always-luminous Hadid looked like she just came back from a 10-day tropical break, fresh and ready to tackle fashion week.

The first full day of New York Fashion Week: Men’s involved lots of pinstripes and plaid, an astronaut cameo, and a presentation from N.Hoolywood that took inspiration from an unexpected — and inadvisable — source: homeless people.

#NYFW16 is officially over, the last of Marc Jacobs’ ladies just exited the building and as we pack for London for their fashion week, we look back at what NYFW meant in terms of fashion trends. These days, the hemline of the skirt, the studs on the jacket or the hue of the dress is great and all but with the increasing popularity of see now, buy now concept, we don’t really have the time to ponder, consider and deliberate what next spring’s trends will be. With instagram + stories and snapchat going full out on fashion coverage, we deliver to you our version of NYFW trends round up through the eyes of which lifestyle tribe you belong to. In the 70s and/Users/dorafung/Documents/, Tanya Taylor.txt 80s, we had Woody Allen’s movies to help us figure out if we are uptown ladies or downtown girls, in 90s and early 00s, we had the ladies of Sex and the City to determine which character we are and now, we have social life to help us with our fashion choices.
New York Fashion Week wraps up Thursday with the Marc Jacobs show, and what you hear is the sigh of fashion editors, buyers and bloggers who may get some sleep soon.
