And here it is, the lastbof my personal NYFW Fall 2011 diary exactly a week after it ended! Timeliness was never one of my strong suits. But, it ended, and end it did with a bang courtesy of the Michael Kors show, a place where all the the fashion big guns come to flex their sartorial muscle (and which included my first ever Anna Dello Russo sighting in real life, complete with gilded cherries on top). I can safely say that it was the consummate fashion show. Celebrities, looped electronic remixes, long runways, supermodels--t had it all. While I may have preferred to go to, say, a Proenza Schouler show over Michael Kors, there's no denying that the man does over-the-top '70s goddess glam like no other. And that he did, fittingly to commemorate his 30th year in fashion. Furs were waterfalls of sumptuousness; sequins glittered like beads of poist-coital sweat; power suits were tailored for perfection (and domination). Not a bad way to close out what will hopefully not be my last trip to the tents!

Alas, now it's back to reality and to fashion nerd-dom--so many shows to catch up on!
I leave you with a new shot of the "arctic raver" (also from Citizen Couture).
