It was a cold, windy Saturday in New York City. The snow finally stopped falling, but the drifts caused by plows made navigating the streets treacherous, especially for stiletto-wearing fashionistas!

I ventured away from Lincoln Center today for some of the uber-hip shows, like Band of Outsiders and Alexander Wang, and was rewarded with a veritable who’s who list of the industry’s elite. From Joanna Hillman to Leandra Medine, everyone braved the wind and snow for a glimpse at next year’s fashion.

Somehow, the crowds and traffic and hectic show schedule only make Fashion Week more fun. It’s so inspiring to be here, right in the middle of the craziness, and I wouldn’t change a thing! Well, maybe less snow, but we can’t have it all. :)

Another cold day out on the streets of NYC at Fashion Week. But that didn’t stop fashion’s style stars from running around seeing the shows today. Here are a few of our favorite looks and people.

The lady behind Man Repeller, Leandra Medine, staying warm in the snow.

British model and socialite Poppy Delevigne clutching a fringe handbag.

A playful combo of color and an equally playful handbag with a pop art motif—like these from kate spade.

Loving the standout sunglasses frames on this duo.

Caroline Issa in killer over-the-knee stiletto boots.

Elena Moussa embracing the metallic shine trend on her pointy-toed pumps.

Kate Lanphear, style director at T Magazine.

Kristina from KAYTURE making her return to the Thread for the third time.

Lauren Rae Levy—as lovely as usual in her floppy wide-brimmed hat.

L.A.-based blogger for Late Afternoon, Liz Cherkasova, in a covetable pair of metallic booties.

None other than the striking Olivia Palermo under that furry trapper hat.

Can’t stand how much we love the classic and retro blend that’s happening in this look that Ndoma is sporting.

It’s the end of Paris Fashion Week (we’re a little sad!). Here’s our final roundup of the scene on the streets shot by our street style guru, Crystal.

Casting agent and fashion stylist Natalie Joos.

Former model Hanneli Mustaparta and Tamu McPherson of All the Pretty Birds in Valentino pumps and cropped boots.

This gorgeous Parisienne is a dead ringer for Audrey Hepburn in a floral statement necklace and oversized cat’s-eye glasses.

A chic Peony Lim in vintage-inspired frames and a sheer black top.

Vogue Italia Editor-in-Chief Franca Sozzani looking fresh in a red lace dress.

T-straps, lace, cutouts and sheers made a sporty splash at BCBGMAXAZRIA this morning. Dresses were loose-fitting and complicated — in a good way.

Spotted a gaggle of bloggers in the front row: Natalie Joos, Leandra Medine and Rumi Neely. Such sweet girls!

And back to Lincoln Center I go!

Leandra and Peony are back, and they brought a friend! Frances is a fashion blogger, same as her companions. I love that these three gals all have very different personal styles, but really work the trends that work for them.

Frances (far left) is rocking a “Stevie Nicks-inspired” ensemble, while Peony (middle) keeps things tailored. Leandra is once again mixing the delicate with the tough, as she does so well.
