Au Revoir Fashion Week! Our Cheat Sheet of High Style Moments

bestof-pipeline-0220It was another long hard journey through eight days of Fashion Week (that's like 22 days in real-people time). Despite the Fashion Flu, umpteen broken shoelaces, furious twittering, and more overcrowded open bars than we care to recount, we made it—and so did you! It helped that we were partnered with StyleList, those crazy cats from AOL. Head over there after you check out our mini hit-list from New York's ultimate week in Fashion. Now that we're done here, it's off to London! Tune in for reports from England next week!
