The most commonly asked question among the risers at NYFW is, "Is your week crazy?" And there's only one answer: "Insane!" But it's not the jam-packed days of back-to-back shows, interviews, and posts that make it so wild. And it's not even the outfits (though they're pretty out there). Nope, it's the late-night parties that really make Fashion Week a truly crazy undertaking.
But don't let the rolling eyes and exasperation fool you. These events are some of the most well-attended, raucous ragers we've ever been to — not to mention, they attract some of the best-dressed guests around the city. Ahead, we compiled the 52 most fashionable, funny, and out-there pics from this week's greatest events so you can see how Rihanna, Leo, Karlie, and the rest of the fashion-set lets loose (we mean really loose) on the busiest, and yes, craziest week of the year. Can you feel the buzz?
Click through for our favorite 52 snaps from 19 dance-till-dawn fashion week parties and get ready for the weekend.
