Are you aware that Fashion Week lasts a MONTH? Yup, a week for New York, and then it's on to Europe, a big continent with many big, back-to-back fashion weeks. So. That's a long time to care about fashion every single day. In other words, while there's a lot worth talking about - Rodarte's aggressive warrior princess (Zena!) dresses, Marc Jacobs's somewhat lackluster (for him, at least) fruit-flavored take on the 70s, Narciso Rodriguez's red shoes and slightly swishy shifts - I'm only giving you the standout-to-me stuff.

(I also think he does the bronze on bronze
|(Okay, so the middle one is more peach on peach. Still, same drift. Marc Jacobs, Mulberry, Philip Lim)|

I dare you to fall all over yourself while sliding through the NYTimes's awesome close up function on their website. It's amazing. So it that one-should cadet grey waterfall gown.
