We're past the halfway point of New York Fashion Week, and today's fashion show and event lineup made all our friends jealous. Any day when you get your hair and nails done for free, sit behind Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington at the Donna Karan show, and get to interview Betsey Johnson is a pretty awesome one in our book. After a full day in the tents, we've rounded up our top three highlights:
We saw this handsome dude backstage
1. Male models!
It took us a couple days, but we finally spotted some! They are hot, they are goofy, and some of them are actually straight! This one was in the middle of a card game and couldn't stop nervous-laughing. Aww.

2. The Betsey Johnson workout
Forget bankruptcy and store closings--NOTHING is going to keep Betsey from putting on a show. With just a few weeks to spare, the spunky designer announced she would indeed be back this season, and was she ever. "Betsey Johnson Kicks Ass" was the theme of her fall show, which showcased workout gear, neon sneakers, and boxing glove-shaped handbags. For the finale, Betsey lead the models in an extensive aerobic workout, all while wearing hilarious wigs. And yes, she did her famous cartwheel--into a split!--to end the show. 70 years young!
Marc by Marc Jacobs -- you've won our hearts
3. "Cool careerwear" at Marc by Marc Jacobs
When we were kids we imagined wearing outfits like this to work when we were grownups. Carrying a briefcase was also part of the plan. Neither of those things ever happened, but after seeing these ensembles our fingers are crossed that they still might.
