Tempting as it is to fill the minutes before a fashion show starts by catching up on Twitter, answering emails and our refreshing Instagram feeds, that time’s better spend scanning the front row.* The ladies—whether they be celebrities, bloggers, models or editors—who sit in those coveted seats don’t just show up in beautiful clothing, but style it all in inspiring ways. To give you the full scope of the NYFW experience (along with our street style, backstage and runway coverage), we’ll be updating this space regularly with our favorite VIP guest outfits of the week, and shopping each look out. Click through the slideshow above to dress like a fashion insider.
*Or, at a presentation event, which doesn’t have a runway, we look for lots of flashbulbs—it’s the fastest way to track down A-list attendees!
