Fashion Week is Upon Us - And This is the Scoop on Day 1

As you may or may not know, Fashion Week has begun. Right now I am gonna give you the breakdown of the first two days we have been through. It's really been a rush so I am gonna report on what you have missed out on so far :-)

This post is all about the celebrities who showed and shined. Cuz come on, isn't that what we most care about? Yeah we love fashion but how many of us are gonna wear a feather-pleather-cotton shirt dress that costs 3,000.00? Didn't think so. But I will be posting about some of my favorite runway shows later.

Jimmy Fallon gave his approval of the street-chic pieces that came down the catwalk atRag & Bone.

Also admiring the label's tailored vests and tuxedo jackets was star stylist Rachel Zoe, who declared that she's excited the menswear-inspired trend is still strong for fall. "[My husband] and I can share clothes!" she joked.
