For all the inspiring, impressive, invigorating things that send our hearts a-flutter on the runways, we find double that in what's going on in the sidewalks outside of shows. Because, let's be honest — it's easy to look magical when you're a model.
To look that awesome — sans a makeup and hair team and with miles to commute, humid weather, and your shoes threatening to break your ankles — is an achievement. And we applaud all the ladies and gents who brought their A-game to NYFW. Whether they're car-service-riding top editors or hoofin'-it interns, our photographers snapped 'em all — see the best of Fashion Week street style so far!
