All we can say is, thank goodness for all the clever ensembles and cool faces patrolling the shows recently. Otherwise where would we find inspiration for another season of keep-'em-guessing looks? As previously reported, everyone from models to admirers upped their game this season, mixing, matching, and, in most cases, mugging for the cameras. As a result, we've gone through more than 700 photos (from our pal Mr. Newton) to bring you the best in gussied-up NYFW street style. As much as designers influence us, fashion isn't only a top-down, runway-to-real life deal--and these stylish scene-stealers prove it.
