NY Fashion Week festivities kicked off last week at Thursday night's annual Fashion's Night Out celebration, drawing some major names in fashion and film to join in the fun. Victoria Beckham showed her latest collection under the tents yesterday while Justin Theroux came out to watch the runway without fiancé Jennifer Aniston. Mandy Moore, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Lauren Conrad were also on the scene over the weekend.

Victoria and David Beckham arrived at Balthazar in NYC with their daughter, Harper, yesterday. They grabbed a bite to eat after Victoria wrapped up her Spring 2013 NY Fashion Week presentation. It looks like their post-show celebration has become a tradition since the trio also dined at the popular SoHo spot after Victoria's Fall 2012 collection went down the runway in February. Victoria once again had David for support in the front row this time around and shared her excitement on Twitter writing, "Relieved!!! Can't believe it's over. Thank you." It's the end of a busy week for Victoria, who teamed up with Anna Wintour for Fashion's Night Out on Thursday and spent the last few days putting the finishing touches on her latest designs.

Wow, what a week! The beginning of September is always heaving with events, the smell of the new season in the air and enough fashion and film festivals to keep us plenty occupied — this time around was no exception. Michelle Obama impressed millions around the world with her inspiring speech, Kristen Stewart finally came out of hiding after her cheating scandal (and she's looking better than ever!) and a certain royal and his almost-royal sister-in-law have been making waves for very different reasons. The fashion set came out to play for Fashion Week's kick-off, and the MTV VMAs were the colourful and happy riot they always are. But, that's not even a fraction of what's happened this week — click through the gallery and catch up on the massive week that was!
New York Fashion Week kicks off on Thursday and we're excited for the semi-annual gathering of designers, models and celebrities. To amp up even more anticipation, we've rounded up a look back at 50 great pictures of celebrity pals checking out runway shows in the past. Gwyneth Paltrow and Emma Watson dressed up for a London presentation in 2009, and Kate Moss joined Kristen Stewart to view an English collection in 2011. Jessica Simpson and Anne Hathaway were side by side in 2004, while Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen matched in Chanel sunglasses on a 2008 trip to Paris.

In preparation for New York Fashion Week's impending kick-off, we take a look back at Phillip Lim's creative genius. His label, 3.1 Phillip Lim, debuted at Fashion Week with a presentation of his Autumn 2006 collection and then showed the Spring 2007 collection the following season on the runway. Since its beginning, the label has been praised for its cool and easy aesthetic. Phillip marries easily the worlds of street style and ladylike elegance in continued collections of subtle femininity and wearable-chic. With a celebrity fan base that includes so many of our favorites — Kate Hudson, Kate Bosworth, Natalie Portman — he's created a wildly popular brand with major staying power. Click through to get a glimpse of Lim's past collections as we eagerly await his Spring '13 lineup.
For colour enthusiasts, the New York Fall '12 runways were positively bursting with cool, unexpected colour blocked combos. Both Vera Wang and Marc by Marc Jacobs were drawn to super-saturated rusted brick hues offset with muted tones, while BCBG injected its downtown-chic pieces with up to four colours at a time. For the daring dresser, Diane von Furstenberg sent silky fuchsia and sky blue blouses paired with even brighter lime green and red complements. While an autumnal colour palette served as initial inspiration, designers didn't limit themselves to dark and dreary matchups. The use of neon pops and pale pastels kept the jazzed-up juxtapositions energetic and fresh — something we're definitely in want of during the cold Winter months. To see the coolest colour combos to emerge from New York Fashion Week, keep clicking.

Ever wonder how your favorite designers started? New York Fashion Week is almost upon us, so we're prepping with a study of some of the top American designers.
By now, the Wang girl is totally iconic; it's hard to imagine the world without Alexander Wang's vision of the downtown, edgy-cool chick. While urban street style existed before 2007, Alexander Wang took it and refined it into something so insanely chic and wearable that every girl wants a piece, whether it's his slouchy denim, killer bags, or body-conscious dresses. Today, Alexander Wang is a global brand and one of the first places you look for something not so much sweet and pretty as utterly cool. Take a look back with this runway retrospective of Alexander Wang's relatively short — but unstoppable — career, and stay tuned for our full report on his upcoming Fall 2012 collection, taking place on February 11 during New York Fashion Week.
