The international race to the runways came to an end this week, and fashion's jet-setters have closed their notebooks, clogged our Instagram feeds, and made their predictions for next season's biggest trends.

We were warned of the repercussions for bad behavior, and now we must suffer the consequences. The gracious hosts, Vogue magazine, the Council of Fashion Designers of America and New York's tourism agency, have had enough of the antics and mayhem that Fashion's Night Out unleashed, so they have relegated New York to a fashionista's time out.

'Twas the very last day of a long week - and the street style outside of the Ralph Lauren show was as fresh as day one. Photographers swarmed the doors as VIPs and industry insiders spilled out into the streets, and more than a few outfits paid homage to Ralph's recent seasons. Love was in the air for Valentine's day as the crowd gushed with praise for the show. Even when a salt machine drove by, spraying thousands of dollars worth of well shod feet - mellowed out fashionistas just kept on smiling.
Academies have valedictorians and athletics have most valuable players, but stars of Fashion Week often go unacknowledged. The true fashion icon must endure a marathon week of shows, backstage visits, industry events, and after parties.
