    You know the old expression: A picture speaks a thousand words...even if it costs upwards of a thousand dollars. Yes, 'tis the art-buying season in NYC, as collectors, dealers, and voyeurs start arriving in droves for one of the Big Apple's biggest and most important creative events, The Armory Show. This year promises to be even more inspirational than ever for this international contemporary fair, with a slew of parties, exhibitions, talks, and workshops featuring the globe's most prestigious galleries and rising young art stars.

    To get in on all the masterpieces (and masterpieces-to-be), we turned to Artsy — a gigantic virtual museum of sorts — to curate the eight pieces you need to see (and, if you're feeling flushed, take home to frame). The site, which serves as the exclusive online partner for The Armory Show 2013, tapped its Artsy's Armory Team to comb through thousands of works on offer for a cheat sheet (with blurbs!) that's definitely worthy of a place on your bookmark bar (and Pinterest board, obviously). Click through for the coolest pieces to peep and click on the links to explore more — we promise your afternoon just got way brighter.

    The Armory Show, March 7 to 10, Piers 92 and 94, 711 12th Avenue (at West 54th Street); no phone.

10 Times The Runway Looked Just Like A '70s Flick

Maybe we've still got films on the brain from Sunday’s Oscars, but we picked up on some not-so-subtle cinematic references in the ready-to-wear looks debuted during the London fall shows. And — spoiler — they are all pretty much stuck in the 1970s.  It makes sense, really. Not only did the spring collections read
