Everyone knows the music for runway shows is muy importante. Sometimes eagerly awaited songs are introduced (see: Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" and Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 2010), but even better than having recorded music played in the background? Having live music performed on the runway. As promised, Rebecca Minkoff had the Electric Lady herself, Janelle Monae, sing songs from her upcoming album as the models took their trips down the catwalk.

If you don't know Adam Selman's name by now, you better start memorizing it. We don't mean to sound bossy, but the former Britney Spears and Michael Jackson costume designer is seriously making his mark in the fashion world. Not only did he co-design Rihanna's spring and fall River Island collections this year and create killer custom pieces for her Diamonds World Tour (that red, yellow and black bustier number? #dead), but he also designed Ri's GORGE slinky white 2012 VMA gown and those unforgettable Victoria's Secret on-stage ensembles. This week, Adam decided to take his stellar design skills a step further and debut his first ever solo collection at NYFW (!!!). Of course we had to stop by and check out the goods firsthand, and, lucky for us, Adam even chatted with us about his fashion week debut.

Ahh, New York Fashion Week. The biannual parade of new designer collections, celebratory soirées, and of course, the LEGIONS of out-of-control, couture-swaddled, flashbulb-hungry fashion-folk captured outside of various event spaces across the city by the equally ubiquitous photographers who thrive off of them. Two times a year, there is a GIGANTIC upswell of street style photography, and each season, it gets a little bit more insane—speaking both to the volume of humans congregating outside of Lincoln Center and to the caliber of ensembles.

The "Is street style tired or not?" debate has been belabored for months now, but regardless of your personal sentiments toward it, we've found a way to make it a LOT more fun: We brought Jarvis Derrell, the GENIUS behind She Has Had It into the mix. Yep. Every day this NYFW, Jarvis is lending his hilarious commentary to our humble plot of interweb in the name of street style. Fashion Kweens, it's your time to THRIVE.

Not everyone can feature a sensible studded clutch, and an 8 pound necklace extravaganza, all while educating the world, on the importance of a little black bolero, and a glorified bowl cut! Pose, then....THRIVE! Yassssss! #shehashadit #thriving #runningofthebulls #ole #mulanonamission #everybodyaintable #blockheels #brave #obsessed #bangaofglory #skinnygurlangels #hungry #blessed

Solange, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, and Zosia Mamet at New York Fashion Week Events.

The celeb crowd attending New York Fashion Week shows and events keeps growing, and we're keeping tabs on all of them. Solange attended the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target event in a navy and black tuxedo jacket—as a shirt!—and tan, abstract animal-print skirt from the collection. She dressed the Target collabo up a bit with tan and clear Givenchy sandals and a studded Fendi clutch. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, both very blonde, seemed more than ready to welcome fall: both were dressed in head-to-toe black. Mary-Kate accessorized with a small, furry bag and cut-out shoes, while Ashley added a monochrome bag and heels with ankle ties. Zosia Mamet hit up the Honor show in a fuchsia-y Honor, duh, dress. She paired the dress with NEON red-and-white Tabitha Simmons for Honor flats #practical. Peep the rest of the celebs hitting up NYFW shows after the jump!

New York Fashion Week

Well, it's officially that time: New York Fashion Week! The celebrations and shows got underway last night at the 10th Annual Style Awards, where Nicole Richie hosted and Ariana Grande performed. There have only been a handful of shows so far, but we've rounded up the best photos of celeb attendees for ya. Last night, Chanel Iman attended the Style Awards in a white Emilio Pucci gown with a sheer panel at the top and a small cutout right below the chest. Cam'ron, who got his fashion feet wet by designing socks with his face on them, dressed casually in monochrome black-and-white to attend the VFiles fashion show last night. And today, Colton Haynes attended the Richard Chai show in a navy checkered suit, completed with an olive green matching shirt and tie. There are many more shows and celebrity sightings to come this week, but until then, satisfy your Fashion Week frenzied mind by looking at the pics after the jump!

Theo flashes his limited-edition jacket.

Living it up isn’t JUST about wine and chocolate for musician Theophilus London. As evidenced by his many clothing collabos, the dude’s way into fashion, and he’s well on his way to being a certifiable cross-over. Remember that swiggity-sweet glow-in-the-dark bomber he previewed on Instagram earlier this year? Well, get ready to put your bills on hold because it’s officially available for purchase (and is exclusive to the U.S.)! That’s right, folks. For a mere (lolz) $850, you could be the proud owner of London’s limited edition, NASA-inspired, reversible jacket that he co-designed with Surface to Air. Last night, Theo launched his latest collaborative project with a special performance at the label’s New York Flagship store, and we were there to peep the action.

New York Fashion Week has officially arrived! Serving as the opening act at Lincoln Center, the 10th Annual Style Awards popped off last night and DUH, just like we told you, Ariana Grande was on-hand to perform/look precious. You guys. I just cannot even with her. She is THE cutest. The dimples! The curls! The giant pipes in a tiny body! You know what? If I could carry around a miniature replica of her in my pocket every day, I totally would. #SorryNotSorry. And while many of the other attendees chose to go with classic black, Ariana conveniently missed that memo, and thank goodness for that.

OMG. Quinn would be SO JEALOUS. While Daria Morgendorffer spent the tail end of the ‘90s (and into the early aughts) griping to her BFF Jane about the woes of the world, it was her blissfully unaware younger sister Quinn who was forever waxing poetic (er, airhead-ic?) about clothes to her high school Fashion Club–but Daria, seen above in head-to-toe Prabal Gurung A/W 2013, was clearly paying attention. (She’ll never admit it.) Seriously though–how UH-MAY-ZING is MTV’s most famous outcast in militia-chic with a little blush on her cheeks? Cynicism never looked so good.

Janelle Monae

We are less than a week away from the release of The Electric Lady, Janelle Monáe's hotly-anticipated, high-concept, genre-bending followup to 2010's The ArchAndroid, ya dig? Since she t-t-t-tipped on our radar with her crisp monochrome suits, slick-shining saddle shoes and a pompadour beehive (no doubt filled with secrets of futuristic fanaticism), we've been dying to see what the COVERGIRL's android alter-ego has planned for the fate of the citizens of Metropolis (and have desperately been trying to find a way to incorporate dainty bow ties into our wardrobe—alas, it's not as easy as she makes it look).

Ariana Grande has a busaaay week ahead of her. Her debut album, Yours Truly, dropped today and immediately went to #1 on iTunes. Then, she stopped by The Today Show and performed "The Way" with Mac Miller and "Tattooed Heart" surrounded by Arianators. And finally, tomorrow, she'll be helping kick off New York Fashion Week by performing at The 10th Annual Style Awards. Jeez, Ariana, it's the day after a long weekend: you're making the rest of us look bad.

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