When it comes to New York Fashion Week, street style trends and endless runway outfit ideas are only two of the reasons that we tune in religiously. The front row is another. Stacked with some of the biggest stars, NYFW provides yet another chance to savor some of that fine-tuned A-list style, with the added benefit of each ensemble packing IRL appeal rather than red carpet glamour. Below, we’ve curated a list of 10 of our favorite celeb looks from the FROW.
