3 Awesome Fashion Week Facts

Not a frequenter of the most important tent in the world? Find it hard to follow the hundreds of bloggers commenting on each individual runway look? Well, here are AllMediaNY.com's official top three most important (or at least most entertaining) things to know about this week's Mercedez-Benz Fashion Week, summarized:

1.  At MBFW, you shouldn't be afraid to speak your mind: With the release of his new book, "Project Runway," host extraordinaire Tim Gunn has been speaking out all over fashion week, calling out Anna Wintour for her dictator-like tactics, calling lost fashion soul Taylor Momsen "pitiful," and more. Gunn's comments have certainly  made for a very fun, gossipy fashion week.

2.  The celebrity who attended the most shows is…: At fashion week, it's almost a competition to see who frequents the front row most.

And this year? Surprisingly, the winner seems to be "Gossip Girl" star Jessica Szohr, which is funny because her character is consistently dressed the most boringly on the show.

3.  Gaga fashion is out, mostly: This season's shows featured way more hippy boho chic collections (see: all of the Anna Sui, Proenza Schouler and Marc Jacobs collections) than the insanity that might have expanded from Gaga's obsession with all things goth/pantsless/crazy. It's a relief to know there won't be any meat dresses on the runway anytime soon.

With a great new feel at Lincoln Center rather than Bryant Park, this season's Spring '11 fashion week was as exciting, entertaining and fashionable as our wildest dreams. Here's to hoping London Fashion Week, which follows directly after New York, can rise to the same level.
