The Most Buzzed-About Moments of NYFW Fall 2013 The 10 Most Buzzed-About Moments of New York Fashion Week by Justin Fenner February 15, 2013 55 Reactions 58 Shares 8 20 29 1 Sure, sure, Fashion Week is ultimately all about the clothes. But the designers, models, editors, and felines who make New York Fashion Week possible set tongues wagging about way more than houndstooth knits and quilted leather. That's because the most buzzworthy moments of the past eight days had nothing to do with clothes and everything to do with dancing, fluorescent pants, outlandish accessories, and elaborate set design. Read on for explanations of those — and for more of what got the New York crowd talking this week.

After John Galliano's three-week residency in Oscar de la Renta's design studio, many wondered whether the former Dior couturier would take a bow at the end of the show. But the audience saw nary a hair on Galliano's head, and he wasn't mentioned in de la Renta's show notes, either.

Was there anyone who saw Marie Claire accessories director Kyle Anderson with the Chanel Hula Hoop Bag this week that didn't make some kind of comment about it?

Attendees complained about the commute to the ticketing hall of the Cunard Building at 25 Broadway (Metro style director Kenya Hunt tweeted that she "literally ice-skated down the last three blocks to make it"), but the show itself got rave reviews.

"Who needs a handbag when you have a cat?" Eva Chen asked. Fashionista reported that Lily was part of a Purina ONE campaign called "True Nature of Cats” movement, which challenges "misconceptions about cats, beginning with the idea they can't be leash trained."

Source: Getty 6 / 10 Front Row Fluo What’s Your Reaction? 0 0 0 0 0 0 The neon green pants this woman wore to Jason Wu's show were so distracting that Style.com altered their color to avoid competing visually with Wu's designs. But the opposite happened. There's now a commemorative Tumblr called Front Row Fluo. Source: Getty 7 / 10 Working Out With Betsey Johnson What’s Your Reaction? 0 0 0 0 0 0 Betsey Johnson's runway was lined with pink yoga mats, and she put them to good use at the end of her show when she led her models in a series of very entertaining aerobic exercises. Source: Getty 8 / 10 The Shining Sun at Marc Jacobs What’s Your Reaction? 0 0 0 0 0 0 The giant yellow sun that cast a sepia glow over Marc Jacobs's show on Thursday was inspired by an Olafur Eliasson 2003 installation at the Tate Modern called "The Weather Project." Jacobs clearly had the weather on his mind. After Hurricane Sandy barred him from his home and snowstorm Nemo delayed his show, a spot of sunlight is probably exactly what the doctor ordered.

McMenamy the younger made her New York Fashion Week debut wearing nothing but pin-striped short shorts, heels, and a pair of opera gloves.
