Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Extravaganza!

Welcome to Fashion Week!

Where the beautiful, fashionable, sometimes crazy-but-always-fun, go to be seen and photographed.

My trip to Fashion Week on Friday began across the street from Lincoln Center where the girls of Pan Am were handing out coffee to start the day.

(Naturally, my friend Tom jumped in for a group photo.)

Across the street, things were just getting started at the Mercedes-Benz tent.

Fashionable attendees and models were dressed from head…

The celebrities were out in full force, too.  I caught a glimpse of 2008 Project Runway Winner Gretchen Jones

Meanwhile, the men were not to be outdone and I “shot” these fashionistas…

– A Final Thought –

Think you can’t afford to be a fashionista?  Don’t worry, you don’t need to fork over a large fortune… just make sure you’re seen!

  1. my faves are the turbaned girl with the curleycue sunglasses – so classy, and the lovely gal with the red rose purse. And sportin’ life, at the end!

    • Hi Ma,

      Yah, “Sportin’ Life” is the perfect name for that photo! I’m hoping to get back to Lincoln Center today to see if I can capture some more interesting looks.

      Love you, J

    • Aren’t the shoes wild?! I saw more far-out heels today, but was “shooed” out (not shooed away;-) Actually, I should have done a video of how women walk in those shoes. Believe me, it’s quite a sight!

      Ciao – Joana
