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. Some of the most determined even make it onto the catwalk in addition to their red carpet and front row duties. New York Fashion Week 2013 was an even greater fete because of the blizzard, which tore through the city in the midst of Friday's shows. These 15 ladies were prominent fixtures of the week and deserve a little accolade for their devotion to fashion. More»

Artist Marcel Duchamp once said: “I am interested in ideas, not merely in visual products.” Duchamp’s seminal creations and thinking were instrumental in art’s paradigm shift over the next 100 years. It may be too soon to tell, but Leandra Medine, aka the Manrepeller, a fellow detractor of retinal art, seems to be on a parallel path, encouraging us to mindfully contemplate our own personal fashion choices, rather than mindlessly follow others’.
This year, Time Magazine named Manrepeller.com one of the top 25 blogs in the world (that’s the entire world, not just the fashion world!) – but it’s her innovative ideas on fashion and the business she’s gotten herself into offline that has caught our attention. With countless collaborations including a jewelry line that sells out in seconds, a new clothing line that will surely do the same, several ad campaigns with brands like Bumble & Bumble, and even a book of essays in the works - she’s become the thinking woman’s fashion icon of the moment, if not the future. She’s inspiring women far beyond the fashion industry to love who they are…with or without their man’s validation. In two short years she has redefined what it means to be a “fashion blogger” and, at 23, she has no plans of slowing down. As Hall and Oates almost once crooned: “Watch out here she comes, she’s a… MANREPELLER!”

Throw some well-informed fashion insiders into the mix of who you follow and your feed can feel like you're sitting front row at NYFW as it happens, complete with street style photos and some backstage runway action as well.
