When I rushed over to chat with Zosia Mamet at the Honor show yesterday afternoon, I didn't start our convo by rattling off a laundry list of reasons why her GIRLS alter ego, Shoshanna, is the character I most identify with on the series-tempted as I was. Rather, I began by complimenting her shoes: the pointy-toed, two-toned flats Tabitha Simmons created for Honor that I nearly Instagrammed to death last fashion week. "I have them in blue, too!" she exclaimed. "I always choose flats over heels."

Seems the young actress will be needing several pairs of reliably comfy shoes in the near future; she'll be hitting up a number of shows this week, including Rebecca Minkoff, Prabal Gurung and...a few menswear collections? "I'm taking my boyfriend to see some dudes," she explained. "He wants to see some guy shows!"

By Perrie Samotin, StyleCasterRead More »from To Discuss: Is New York Fashion Week Losing Its Relevance?
The typical scene outside a New York Fashion Week show. "Have you guys noticed that nobody seems to be that excited about Fashion Week?" This was the question StyleCaster's Editor in Chief posed to a few staffers while on line at Starbucks last week, after a discussion broke out about the general lack of buzz surrounding this season.

Typically, right before New York Fashion Week kicks off, there's an intangible current running through the industry, and an almost endless amount of pre-coverage-whether it's sites like ours competing for scoops, creating too-insidery-for-comfort "survival guides," and endless strategizing about ways to cover the madness of the week that's separate from everyone else.

This season though, things just feel, well, different. In fact, some could argue that the buzz has been waning among insiders for a few seasons, thanks to the prevalence of things like

A drop-dead red-carpet gown by Marchesa's coveted lineup might be out of reach, but designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig aren't leaving anyone empty-handed. The two are now dressing up nails! Partnering with Revlon, they're introducing a collection of eight nail appliqué sets inspired by their exquisite creations. "We even translated [signature] beading with relief detailing on the surface," says Craig. We love how the duo's amazing designs are mirrored perfectly on each set of decals, and the project had a hidden perk: "I've pledged to stop biting my nails," she says, laughing. Find the Revlon by Marchesa 3-D Jewel Appliqués priced at $10 for a set of 18 at drugstores nationwide now!

Eden Miller made history on Friday, with the first plus-size line at New York Fashion Week. After 60 years of catwalks in the country's fashion epicenter, it's about time. On Friday, Cabiria designer Eden Miller presented her plus-size Spring 2014 collection alongside five other handpicked designers as part of the Fashion Law Institute presentation at Lincoln Center. Miller told Fashionista that she wasn't necessarily chosen because she's a plus-size designer. “It just happened to be that they liked my stuff,” she said.

The average American woman now wears a size 14, but attractive plus-size fashions and models who can wear them are still hard to find. Some big, mainstream designers have claimed it's hard to find models to cast above a size 4, while some casting agents pass the blame back to designers, saying plus-size women simply won't fit into their always-tiny clothing samples.

Fashion week comes to New York City this week, kicking off a solid month of shows and celebrations as the scene moves on to London, Milan, and then Paris. Among fashion professionals, the long days are famous, the nights occasionally infamous. Now that food and fashion are officially on friendly terms, we asked Matthew Schneier, deputy editor of the powerhouse site Style.com, which restaurants and bars here and in Europe's fashion capitals are magnets for the catwalk crowd and continent-hopping party people.

The most buzz I've been hearing is for the East Pole, the new restaurant from Ben Towill and Phil Winser of the Fat Radish, which has just opened on the Upper East Side. That's not exactly ground zero for fashion, though, so I expect the standards will keep going strong: Indochine, the Smile, Bar Pitti, and the

Although today's shows aren't over, I'm going to go out on a limb here and honor this one as my favorite. I'm excited to start wearing layers for fall right now, but this collection proves the multi-dimensional look will continue after the snow melts into spring.Richard Chai Love offered up layers for every type of lady from those who lunch to those who prefer to hide in the shadows. His drool-enducing white leather bomber jacket worn over a button-up striped shirt and midi skirt screams downtown chic. While the cherry red tank dress and floral print pants would appease those with more feminine taste. Finally, who says spring has to be about whites and brights? At the end of the show, we got treated to some seriously dark threads, like this pin-striped, double-breasted vest worn over multiple layers and a crop top-proving you can still be mysterious when showing a little skin.
Which layered look suits your mood?

Backstage at BCBG The look at BCBGMAXAZRIA this season was easy and boyish, with a touch of androgyny. Lead makeup artist Val Garland for Sephora PRO described the inspiration as "a bit androgynous. You borrow your boyfriend's jacket, and you want the look to be sexy and a bit spare. Real, but not polished. Basically, when I was talking to the designers, the look is about taking a shirt or a tuxedo and pulling it apart and putting it back together again. I wanted the makeup to feel quite boyish, like she's just put on some mascara and she's done. "

Backstage with MAC Cosmetics With New York Fashion Week just around the corner, we're busy working on finalizing our schedules, stocking up on vitamins and getting every last bit of sleep we can before the event-hopping begins. We'd like to say that it's not that different for makeup artists pre-fashion week, but their schedules are stocked full of "makeup tests" to figure out the looks that we'll be seeing walk down the runways. Since a big part of our time backstage is spent talking with the talented artists, and they are often jumping around to more shows than we are (while trying to figure out how to apply a bold lip and three layers of lashes in less than two minutes flat), we decided to speak to the PR geniuses behind M·A·C Cosmetics and see what fashion week is like for them, by the numbers.

From some of the most revered (and let's be honest feared editors), to the fashion bloggers who now dominate the front row, to the designers who make the New York Fashion Week calendar what it is.
