Hey, remember how the biggest conversation in the weeks leading up to this season of New York Fashion Week was about how the whole enterprise was starting to feel a bit like a circus? There was talk of designers pulling out of the traditional tents/Lincoln Center situation and turning toward smaller, more intimate (and more spread out) venues, and that Alexander Wang might even move his presentation all the way out to *GASP* Brooklyn! Well, it happened. All of it. And while we agree that NYFW, as it exists, begs to be disrupted, this week, we turned toward the eye of the storm and walked straight into the zoo. OK, a zoo. A gathering of animals, at the very least? We went to the New York Pet Fashion Show. And, BTW, (HAI, HATERZ) it was THE BEST.

Are we really in the homestretch of New York Fashion Week already? It feels like just yesterday our favorite celebs, models, and designers were descending upon New York City to deliver us entertainment and fashion and now, in two short days, they'll disappear until September. Let's not dwell on the future, though, and instead embrace what we have now: celebrities at fashion shows.

A few looks from Rodarte's Fall 2014 collection.

The Force is strong with this one. "This one" meaning Rodarte's Fall 2014 collection (obviously). Yesterday, the Sisters Mulleavy sent their latest line down the runway, which featured a few VERY familiar faces—and we're not talking about the models. With the blessing of director George Lucas, his wife Mellody Hobson, and Disney (who recently acquired the rights to Lucas' Lucasfilm Limited production company) Rodarte presented a series of Star Wars-themed looks that were both very literal (i.e. gowns emblazoned with Yoda, Luke Skywalker, and C-3PO) and creatively interpretative.

Before the beloved character-print dresses closed out the show (sans noticeably absent leads like Princess Leia and Darth Vader), Rodarte duo Kate and Laura Mulleavy delivered a collection filled with what we believe were more-discreet references to the cult-classic trilogy—which, to the average ogler, might seem totally a bit random, but have been several years in the making, as George Lucas took a highly coveted front row seat at Rodarte's Winter 2012 show. We consulted our resident Star Wars fangirl, Lauren Reid, for some much-needed insight on the collection's less-obvious nods to the films.

Looks from Peter Som's Fall 2014 show.

Last season, sound stylist Javier Peral gave us all the juicy deets on the vibes behind the soundtracks at New York Fashion Week. From Jason Wu to Monique Lhuillier to Carolina Herrera, we got the lowdown on the curated beats that fueled the catwalks, and the people, places, and things that influenced designers' new collections. This season, Peral has been gracious enough to grant us access (again) to Peter Som's soundtrack, which has quickly become one of the most heralded shows of the Fall 2014 collections. Wanna know all the songs that accompanied Som's fresh, blurry florals and expertly tailored pieces? (Your answer should be something along the lines of "duh.") Well, good. Because you can check out the full playlist and the ideas behind the looks after the jump!

There are a few things you can always expect from a Christian Siriano show: drama that's well-balanced with wearability, meticulous attention to construction, and highbrow inspiration. The Fall 2014 collection he debuted at New York Fashion Week is absolutely no exception, hitting each note with even more masterful precision than in previous seasons. We were lucky enough to catch up with Siriano backstage just before his show, where he revealed his muse and gave us a peek at his thought process when developing a collection.

Now that we're on Day Five of New York Fashion Week, we've grown familiar with who is in New York and attending shows. (Anna Kendrick is all over, to the point where I think she may have cloned herself.) Angel Haze, Solange, and Holland Roden attended shows yesterday (it was Solange and Holland's first appearance at this year's Fashion Week), so we have a feeling we'll see some new faces as the event draws to a close.

While Angel Haze walked in DKNY's show over the weekend, she sat front row at 3.1 Phillip Lim's show yesterday in a semi-metallic suit and matching light-purple hair. Solange attended the Milly show doing what she does best: wearing bold-colored clothes. It's not easy to pull off orange, bright blue, and pink, but obviously Solange managed. After her five-show front row streak at last year's Fashion Week, Holland Roden appeared at Alice + Olivia's show looking very schoolgirl-chic in a plaid skirt and bow-print sweater.

Rag & Bone

Runway fashion borrowing from hip-hop culture is hardly a new phenomenon. The trend took off back in fall of 1991 when Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld divisively tried his hand at “the ‘nouveau’ rapper look,” piling gold chains on his models, while his peers Isaac Mizrahi and Charlotte Neuville took similar inspiration. Now it’s pretty much a commonplace for designers to look to the genre and even tap its key players to walk in their shows. Just this weekend, Angel Haze strutted down DKNY’s runway.

Last season at New York Fashion Week, Alexander Wang—who’s merged the two worlds throughout his career—referenced ‘90s rap when he sent out "Parental Advisory" sweatshirts to the beat of Pharoahe Monch’s 1999 single “Simon Says.” A moment that perhaps also stuck with Rag & Bone’s Marcus Wainwright and David Neville when they were planning their Fall ‘14 collection.

Day Four of New York Fashion Week means we're halfway done with all this #FASHUN. Thankfully, we still have a few more days of #shehashadit's Jarvis Derrell taking on NYFW street style for us. Yesterday was rife with exposed skin and colorful hair, but today is full of layers, fur, and hats. So many hats. In case you missed any of Jarvis' earlier posts, you can peep 'em here—otherwise see below for what's been going down today on the street.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
