    When you tell people you just came back from a Rebecca Minkoff show, everyone asks the same question: "Was it insane?" And, sure enough, Minkoff's front row was packed with enough high-profile editors (Eva, La Lanphear), blogosphere queens (Aimee Song), and Girls stars (Zosia Mamet) to keep cameras snapping and — ahem — certain, non-famous editors' eyes blinded from the flashes. But, once the lights dimmed and the ethereal live performance of AlunaGeorge began, even this raucous audience was rapt. Because what came down the runway was Minkoff at her best: beautifully made clothes that are both insanely wearable and forward looking.

    The collection felt less girly than in the past. Shapes were predominantly menswear inspired: massive, cozy overcoats, boyish cropped trousers, bomber jackets. But, these pieces were redefined in a distinctly feminine palette of soft gray, petal pink, and dusty lavender. It's also a distinctly spring-y palette for a fall collection, but that's emerging as one of our favorite trends this fashion week: the year-round pastel.

    Minkoff always shines on accessories, and this season's cap-toe, knee-high boots, quilted belt bags, and shiny patent, structured satchels (worn two at a time in a clever styling move) will keep the many Minkoff fans who've never worn her clothes happy.

    Click on for our favorite moments of fall '14 — so much goodness here, from runway to backstage madness.

How To Wear White This Winter

For some, white is an intimidating color. The mere thought of wearing it head-to-toe is reason enough to slip into an all-black uniform — your winter MO. (Hey, you're clumsy by nature, and red wine is the moth to your outfit's flame.) But, this is the season of second chances. Plus, we can't think of a color more read
