Work It! The Good, The Bad & The Ugly Of New York Fashion WeekAs everyone knows, the best action at Fashion Week doesn't happen on the runway. So we bring you a GBU from yesterday's tents! It's hard to say exactly what the dress code is for fashion shows, since some people wear cocktail dresses at 9 am. What's not hard to say is that some fashionistas look like total ass, which, it's true, might be a dress code memo I didn't get.
