You want to see supermodels. You want to see a wardrobe malfunction. You want to see a collection of wildly outlandish capes that you could never, ever pull off. (Once. Just once, I'd like to see somebody in real-life actually try to pull off a cape.)
Unless you're hooked up with a legitimate, impossible-to-find pass, good luck getting into the tents at Bryant Park. You have one of two ways:
1) Tell security you're a photographer with "Getty Images." Just bring a big-looking camera and you're good to go. (Hey. It worked for one anonymous CP staffer.)
2) There's a better way. Aquafina, one of the sponsors of Fashion Week, has launched a site
that lets you watch every show. Live. Over the internet. You don't even have to wait for those recaps on "Full Frontal Fashion" later in the day.
In addition to the webcasts, the site has comprehensive photos and a daily schedule. We have to admit, though, the real draw is their blog, which kinda makes us jealous. They actually have some non-fluff, non-sycophantic commentary. An exceprt from their thoughts on the Y Not:"...For the most part, it felt a bit forced. Fabrics infused with glitter, sequins, or glistening silver threads seemed gimmicky, but these always-feminine pieces would make for a young girl's dress up afternoon in her mom's closet."
