's started. The tents, the stars, the parties, the models, the hoopla, the absurdity, the agony, the ecstasy. Not the election season, silly, it's New York Fashion Week! Yes, this first show might be BCBG Max Azria, but we gotta work up to the big stuff. And even if it's not the most innovative line in the world - as usual it's drapey and cruise-ready - BCBG is one of the few fashion week shows that will actually be coming to a Mall Near You, so this ain't just theory, kids. To the tents! (Click on the pic to view a gallery of selected looks.)
