"This is proof that maybe models do eat. The spread at [Jason] Wu was gone an hour before the show!" - Maura Lynch, senior beauty editor

"Fashion week observation: Anne Keane and I are both carried clutches in our totes today. Mine (left) are Tiffany and Proenza; her's are Hermès and Zero Maria Cornejo." - Julia Kalachnikoff, accessories director
"I spotted the best back details this season outside the Peter Som show today!" - Anne Keane, fashion director
"This show was a hit. There's nothing better than seeing a (typically muted, if not totally jaded) fashion crowd get genuinely excited, and Peter Som's Spring 2014 elicited cheers AND a handful of standing ovations. My favorite part? Flats, flats and more flats! (And pointy-toed ones, at that.) Also: dresses with pockets. They more than made up for the fact that crop tops seem to be here to stay. (They're cute, but let's be real: *really* hard to pull off.)" - Verena von Pfetten, executive digital editor
"I have a soft spot for Rag & Bone, but I can barely remember the clothes because I was so mesmerized by the perfectly matte, traffic cone-bright orange lipstick! As was Hanneli Mustaparta, who sat across from me bopping to Onyx's 'Slam' in a pair of post-Labor Day white overalls—and her own neon orange lips." - Verena von Pfetten, executive digital editor
"This season is the first that Gucci Westman created a makeup look with a lip color for Rag & Bone, so obviously she had to go big. Backstage she said she chose orange in particular because, 'pink is too sweet, red is too pretty.'  So, it's official: Orange lipstick is going to be a thing next year. Get ready!" - Sarah Ferguson, production assistant
"People like to say that the era of the supermodel is over, that celebs and even reality stars are a bigger deal to the fashion world now, but I'm not sure that's necessarily true. When someone like Karlie Kloss opens a relatively smaller show like Cushnie et Ochs, you can actually see everyone snap up straight in their seats, absolutely mesmerized." - Natalie Matthews, digital fashion writer
"Because caffeine and hydration are key to surviving NYFW, NoNoo thoughtfully provided its guests with both regular and coffee coconut water. There was a little carton of each waiting under every seat!" - Alison Syrett Cleary, digital writer
"This afternoon's Rebecca Minkoff show was more than just a display of clothes in motion—it was a full-blown concert! Janelle Monáe performed, and I spied more than a few editors shimmying in their seats to 'Tightrope' as the Mexico-inspired collection hit the runway. Add that to the fact that Lindsey Wixson (one of my absolute favorite models) closed the show, and there's no denying that Minkoff's outing was a slam dunk all around." - Elana Fishman, senior digital editor
